Just warming up

Is the jury back on global warming yet? I'm not sure it can afford to stay out much longer.

Hurricane Wilma brought heavy rains to Central America and Mexico on Wednesday as it swirled into the most intense Atlantic storm ever recorded, a Category 5 monster packing 175 mph winds that forecasters warned was "extremely dangerous."
On the plus side, the oil and coal industries are raking in mad profits. Fortunately, there is good news for the rest of humanity.

Wilma was not expected to keep its record strength for long, as disruptive atmospheric winds in the Gulf of Mexico should weaken it before landfall, Hurricane Center meteorologist Hugh Cobb. Gulf water is about 1 to 2 degrees cooler than that in the Caribbean, which should inhibit its strength more, he added.
I'm no scientist, but if cooler water should inhibit a hurricane's strength, what effect do you suppose warmer water has? Does this sway the jurors at all? Probably not, because there's no way this administration is going to do anything to address the problem of global warming -- shit, it can barely be bothered to clean up after Katrina. We have to wait until 2009, at the soonest, before we can even begin to address this problem.

How close is that fucking ranch to the Gulf of Mexico?

That ranch can not be close enough to the gulf. It would be nice if he was home and Wilma made a beeline for it (sparing everything else on the way) Maybe then he would look into global warming!!!!
