Everything is due to "global climate change."

When I was a child, I remember hearing about a "coming ice age." Now it is global warming or 'climate change." It astounds me that people who cannot predict the weather more than an hour or two in advance have the unmitigated gall to presume they can can predict what will happen in a few years. The conclusion of the
"global climate change" crowd is only as good as the information fed into the computers (which is what the whole theory is based upon.) If we have weather that is too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry, it is blamed on global climate change and man. Do I think we shouldn't be concerned about pollution and the world we live in? Absolutely not! Do I think we should destroy our way of life based upon unproven, scientifically questionable data? No. With all due respect to Mrs. O'Bannon, crying that the sky is falling is alarmist and unfounded: Indiana will suffer from the policies our current president and congress support. Our nation will suffer. When you can no longer afford to pay your electric bill because of Mrs. O'Bannon and her parties "concern" for the environment, I hope you begin to look beyond the political hype and start to question the scientific data and conclusions with good old fashioned Hoosier common sense.
