Alarming news of excessive normality in New Hampshire:
Much of this week’s winter carnival in Gilford has been canceled, due to too much winter.
But in California, vicious Republicans are planning to warm the state to death:
The California Republican Party has now apparently decided that the concept of global warming and any effort to do anything about it are their primary targets, and they will do anything to prevent action on global warming or the water crisis. Nevermind the fact that dams are pointless if less rain and snow are falling. Republicans appear quite happy to leave Californians at further risk of catastrophic water shortfalls. In their inaction, California’s future hangs in the balance.
That was written four months ago. Here’s a more recent report:
The snowfall season should end above-average – and that means Californians, warned to brace themselves after an exceptionally dry 2007, almost certainly won’t face water shortages this summer.
That’s right. No dirty cars. No brown lawns. And no saving the bath water.
“Fears should be put to rest,” said snow surveyor Dave Hart of the state Department of Water Resources. “There’s no way you could say we’re in any kind of drought.”
