This year, the entire US Mid-west -- in what was supposed to be a banner year -- is now in the middle of a horrible drought which is literally killing the latest crop.
All that being said, here's the deal: there is no way to look at these events -- along with the massive amount of record temperatures being reported across the country (not to mention the record polar ice cap melt) -- and not come to the conclusion that global warming is here and we better get ready to understand its impact on the economy.
So, if you don't think global warming is real, let me make this comment: you are
- an idiot
- a dolt
- a moron
- an embicile
- dumber than a stump
- dumber than a post
More importantly, your stupidity has voided your first amendment right to speak. Put another way, you're too damn stupid to have a place in sane public discourse. Please go back to the children's table in the kitchen and let the adults discuss this matter as adults.
