In just two decades, the normal temperature in the United States has risen 1 degree, a new measure of how climate change is making the country not just hotter overall but wetter in some areas and drier in others, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Interesting article about how climate change is effecting the temperatures in Louisiana. I'm not so sure that data this short term has much merit, but I get that the earth is warming, no doubt about that, how much is due to humans is debatable, and most importantly what are the tradeoffs to changing how we live. I'm a nature lover so I'mm all for the environment, but let's not let data like this scare us into doing something stupid, that's all I'm saying......

See the charts of the temperature change here....

If they right about all the ice melting and sea levels rising, that part of the country better learn to swim, lol

I'm just joking, I don't think that will be the case

We already know how to swim, lol
