Weather will change, transportation issues won't

Even when it rains, don't forget to water

If it happens to be raining hard when you read this, my words might make you want to pelt me with ripe tomatoes — if you had them yet. Still, I'll say it: Timely watering can eke the best plant growth from any plot of ground in any season.

Unless we accept truth, we are climate change's frog soup

Blistering heat (105, 108, 115F), violent storms (100, 105, 110 mph winds) , raging wildfires (Colorado, Iowa, Indiana). Well, the scientists predicted it and it will get worse.

Could signals be cause of global warming?

What if climatologists are right about the climate worsening over the last century? Then again, today's monitoring stations outnumber 1900's by at least 100 to 1. Can we really generalize from century-old data the way we can reliably extrapolate with today's data?
