  1. Snow in Southern California right now too. Why or how is global warming an emergency? I really don’t get it. It’s been consistent weather for years.

    • It’s not, some have just hijacked it to push their own selfish agenda. Climate change is very real however keep that in mind, historical records show us the the climate has changes many times in the past without any help at all from man.

  2. If I recall the video Little Ice Age Big Chill when the climate cooled people tended to stay in their tiny little homes to try to stay warm and dry and the plague infected Rats came in for the same reasons and the Black Death was the result. One might want to know what is going on with rodent population cycles and yersina pestis in the wild.
