92 Degrees – in April!

Posted in Politics on April 8, 2010 by lylede

Yesterday was April 7, 2010. It was sunny and warm and reached 92 degrees here in New York City. That’s right, 92 in the beginning of April!

I hope the air conditioners break in all the cars and homes of every corrupt politician down in Washington, DC who just a few months ago claimed global warming doesn’t exist because the southeast got a lot of snow this past winter.

It’s so sad that they’re so corrupt and do the bidding of their campaign contributors (big oil, big coal, etc.) instead of what is right for the average citizen, America and the world.

And a quick science lesson would also show them how global warming is a bit of a misnomer and can actually cause MORE precipitation and snowfall (granted politicians don’t care about facts – the truth can’t give them campaign contributions!)

Just in case they do want to be enlightened, as the sun warms the planet’s oceans, rivers and lakes the water evaporates. That evaporated water (which you can’t see or feel) rises into the atmosphere and is absorbed by clouds. When the clouds get full they release the evaporated water back down onto earth in the form of precipitation. With our planet warming, and more heat trapped in our atmosphere, more water will evaporate and cause more precipitation.

If only the environment could give some money to the campaign contribution whores in Washington, DC we might see some sensible behavior from our government.
