    I am sure that this strip will illicit some warm commentary from those folks who live in De Nile.

    Look up “Midwestern United States”. It’s one of the Census Bureau’s geographic regions, and it does include Minnesota.

    Actually, everything is in the Midwest now that Maryland is under water.

    I’m in Missouri. Missouri is the heart of the Midwest. Minnesota is directly north of me. Minnesota must also be a Midwest state.
    But then again, would you describe Florida as South, or East?

    It was reported the other day that massive amounts of surface ice have melted in Greenland — but I’m sure climate-change deniers will claim that Greenland is a myth.

    Well, I live in Anchorage, so that means the Washington State is in the Southeast, cuz it’s south-east of me.

    Over 4000 heat records broken in the last couple of months. What’s it gonna take to convince you?

    Well, it’s clearly getting warmer but what can be done about carbon emissions? Most Americans think he or she is entitled to drive a giant gas guzzling pickup or suv and when you fly over cities at night you have to wonder if all those street lights and parking lot lights need to be on. Then there are are the emerging economies that are building power plants like crazy, buying cars, etc. Well, why not, they’ve earned it after years of privation. For these reasons, I don’t think there will be significant reductions in carbon emissions. Nobody wants to bite the bullet. And Americans least of all.

    So here’s my solution: embrace it. Embrace global warming. Adapt to it. Harness it. Grow food in the newly warmed areas. And most important of all, start making plans now to flee from coastal cities!

    But wait, there’s more! I just thought of another solution: encourage the caldera in Yellowstone to blow out ASAP. A little nuclear winter might turn this thing around for us.

    How come when really cold weather occurs we are told that you can’t extrapolate from local or short term temps, but when we have HOT weather, it is taken as proof that the sky is burning?
