Don't worry. The Republican party assures us global warming is just a hoax.

..and if it is not a hoax, we know from what the previous republican precident explained... humans and fish can coexist peacefully. That is great news, considering we will all have to live in the same water ;-)

This is all lies it is obvious from ice ages and other such weather things that sometimes the world heats - when it is closer to warm planets like the sun - and cools off when it is away since the universe is icy cold. Therefore we are enetering close to sun and why this is happening. We should not listen to climate skeptiks like Gore and Gorinham since they are money. They lie and pretend for money why do I know this as the weather in 30 years in no way can be memorized as no time machine exists. Maybe we will go away from sun maybe we will not go away from sun. How know. What do know is that you should know it is out of our hands and nothing we can do. See?

Latest comment: I just wonder just how many of those "weather disasters" strike on average less than 30 years throughtout history, also how do you define a disaster,after all if a hurricane hit a very low population area and only 5 people die would the world care or even notice . The only reason why people notice disasters nowadays is because it makes good visually exciting news coverage . as a comedian once said about a reported disaster in china , "I didn't even know they were alive until someone told me they were dead". ps i cant remember who the comedian was (long time ago). This prediction reminds of someone who made a killing in the betting shops by getting 20 to 1 odds for there being at least one hole in one during a golf tournament. the true historical odds were about 1 to 1. The weather is not getting more extreme ( the incidence of tornados in america is actually dropping ) its just that the population is increasing and most of the new houses are built in places more prone to storm damage (there is a reason why flood plains exist, its because rivers flood stupid), it should also be noted that inceased building and land use means increased faster drainage. When it rains the water hits the rivers faster leading to more flooding in the river basin and therefore more damage and bigger disasters. Its called bad planning.
