Short read. Some, not all, in the news lately. "Of Course" this is NOT PROOF of AGW or even GW. Just consistent with it.

It never really hit me earlier that the constant heat/warming/drying out would "cause" more fires and bigger fires. Kinda like hurricanes in this respect...….just a whole lot more common.

Climate Change AFFECTING US RIGHT NOW...…..and people still waiting for proof, still denying what is gnawing on their leg.

The job of a skeptic is to investigate the unexplained; not to explain the uninvestigated.

landrews post is a quick read supporting an uptick in the strength of Hurricanes as well.

And yet, people are still buying coastal properties. Don't they read the news?

Exactly. Glad to help clarify the issue for people who don't bother.
