    ElephantNest started a thread regarding the high temp where he is. So I want to ask, what do you all think of the global warming thing? I'm in the pac nw and I've been mowing into december for the last three years now and can't remember a hard freeze or a real snowfall for seventeen years at least. And have even had to start mowing agian in the middle of Feb. Could it just be El Nino? Any comments?...oly

    I saw a bumper sticker the other day: Alaskans for Global Warming

    I can relate, being from the NW as well I wouldn't mind a little temp increase.

    We've been in and out of at least 3 different ice ages that we know of. In the 1970's the climate dooms-day crowd screamed Global Cooling. I think it's all bunk. There's "evidence" that the planet is in a warming trend but to say we're the cause of it is crap. Like I said before, we've been in and out of at LEAST 3 different ice ages that we know of and all of them occured before man was in any great numbers here.
