  •  More frequent, stronger storms (0+ / 0-)

    Are consistent with the changing climate caused by CO2 and other greehouse gasses. The massive snows recently and the huge hurricanes of 2005 are consistent with this - not caused by it.

    •  Sure, ok (0+ / 0-)

      But tying the two together in the mind of the public means that they equate not hearing about hurricanes with global warming being a hoax, or at least over-hyped.  Since most people won't even hear about storms that don't make landfall (or even about ones that make landfall away from the U.S.) I think that linking the two to convince people of the problem is counterproductive.

      There is no goal in the "War on Drugs" that couldn't be more effectively met by legalization & regulation.
