Hope the Olympics come off without a hitch, but 2012 weather is similar to 2011.

Odin, Odin, Send the wind to turn the tide. Smile

I have been here for well over half a century and never seen so much rain in the summertime. We had quite a dry winter though.

News flash! The sun just came out! Smile

It can't possibly be global warming could it?

With the ocean temperature rising, and catastrophic weather events all over the world happening every day it has to be the presidents fault.

Nah, it's those global warming deniers. Those self-fulfilling prophecies come back to kick some people in the butt every time! Smile

Speaking of which Mt Kenya, Africa’s second highest peak is regarded as the realm of Ngai, god of the local Kikuyu people. Traditionally, all Kikuyu home were built to face this sacred peak. They call it Kirinyaga, or place of light.

The mountain is an awe-inspiring sight. Its ragged series of peaks are crowned with snow, and its slopes are thick with forest. The mountain is best seen at dawn, when the days early light silhouettes its impressive summit high over the surrounding plains.

While the 5199 metre summit is a difficult technical climb, the lesser peak of Point Lenana (4985m) can be easily reached by any fit trekker.

This trek takes between 3 and 5 days, through a fascinating world of forests, wildlife, unique montane vegetation including podocarpus and grounsel, and finally one of the worlds rarest sights, equatorial snow.

What’s so bad about global warming? My pool’s been 86 degrees most of the season so far. I’m loving it!

PS Can’t wait for the Olympics!

That sounds pretty incredible, but I can be just as awe inpired by a beautiful sunrise or sunset. Nature is pretty amazing, and no supernaural forces are needed to make it so.

You're in luck. After a few more years of global warming, you may not have to worry about the cost of maintaining a pool. Your backyard (or state), may BE a pool...

"For July -- i.e., July 1st through July 5th -- there has been 942 records broken and 273 that were tied. For 2012 to date, 23,613 maximum temperature records have been set. Over the same period in 2011, only 13,582 maximum temperature records were broken. That is an increase of 71% over last year, which was more than hot enough as I recall. What's even more worrying is that, while all these temperature maximums are being set, the earth 94.5 million miles away from the sun, the farthest distance it will be this year, and we are breaking record high temperatures willy-nilly, like a store holding a going out of business sale."

Yes, it's another hot summer in North America. But the rest of the world is rather cool, if not downright cold.

Wide fluctuations of the world's weather conditions is the first sign of global warming. You are rapidly running out of denial space here.

When I was a kid back in the 50's, I remember summer temperatures over 100 degrees keeping my friends and I in our basements playing Monopoly for part of the summer. I don't seem to recall anyone panicking about global warming at that time.

Wide fluctuations in weather patterns, ocean temp rising, and large scale forest fires are a certain sign of global warming.

Do you have any proof that it was this hot when you were a kid? We have just had the two warmest Winters in recorded history.

I lived in Maryland in the '50's ( about ten minutes from where I live now ) and I remember 104 degree temperatures.
Oh, and don't bother calling me about my backyard, I'm probably not going to be around 5000 years from now.
