5 Oct 2005 and there is 5 inches of "global warming" to shovel here in Gillette. It is WAY to early to have to deal with snow! Time to head for the Verdi valley. I guess the snow will make tracking the speed goats easier.

Like it? Just get more of those coal-fired power plants up and running and we can have more wet falls! The government of Montana is committed to global warming.

The hell with coal fired power plants- I'm currently installing a 350,000 Btu coal fired boiler for the house and outbuildings. I'll contribute to global warming by warming the neighborhood.

As for the global warming thing, I honestly believe it is a problem only in that it is happening so fast. It will not be the first time the planet has been warm. Remember Pangaea? Pangaea was a super continent before all the current continents shifted around to their present positions on the Earth's mantle. It is also believed to have been warm, wet and lush; covered with jungles near the equator and forests toward the poles. The whole planet was warmer way back when.

I have no idea what animals or plants were around then. I'm sure some of them are still with us today. I think we can all take steps to slow global warming, but with other nations, burgeoning populations and lack of education it's a losing battle. It is inevitable.

Thanks to the "no child gets ahead program" they don't teach satire in school any more. My "global warming" concept was intended to be tongue-in-cheek. I believe in illustrating absurdity by being absurd!

I was trying to keep it funny. I guess I needed one of those faces.
