Hot weather proves climate crisis is for real!

Now we finally know.

After so many years of argument between skeptical conservatives and knowledgeable progressives over the effect that greenhouse gases emitted by human activities are having on our planet's climate, the question has been the recent high temperatures we've been having.

As John McCain would say, "My friends, the climate crisis is for real."

Thanks to right wing methodology (carefully pioneered by all-knowing pundits turned scientists like Stefan Sharkansky) all we have to do is step outside, feel the hot weather firsthand, and observe the rapidly melting snow pack to decisively conclude that global warming is a sure thing:
At Seattle-Tacoma International Airport today, the temperature climbed to 90 degrees at 3:20 p.m., breaking the previous record of 85 set in 1956.

At Sea-Tac on Friday, temperatures hit 84 degrees, tying the 1985 record for hottest temperature on record for May 16. Two coastal towns, Quillayute and Hoquiam, hit record highs, too, with temperatures in the low 90s.
Our planet has a fever...and it's up to us to do something about it. Visit the Alliance for Climate Protection to learn how to reduce your carbon footprint.
