When one signs on to the concept of global warming (politely called “climate change”), then the episodes of violent weather we experienced recently make perfect sense.
It will soon be hurricane season and we can expect a good number of them this year, in my opinion. Fewer were reported last year, but huge and horrible tornadoes filled in the damage space across the nation.
North Central Texas was hit recently by a storm system that spawned 12 tornadoes across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. This comes on the heels of the extraordinarily hot summer of 2011. Who knows what the summer of 2012 will be like, but you can bet it will be a change from what we are used to in past decades.
Yes, Virginia, the globe is warming.
