Winter Warmest on Record Worldwide

And the beat goes on......

WASHINGTON - This winter was the warmest on record worldwide, the government said Thursday in the latest worrisome report focusing on changing climate.

The report comes just over a month after the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said global warming is very likely caused by human actions and is so severe it will continue for centuries.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said the combined land and ocean temperatures for December through February were 1.3 degrees Fahrenheit above average for the period since record keeping began in 1880.

The report said that during the past century, global temperatures have increased at about 0.11 degrees per decade. But that increase has been three times larger since 1976, NOAA's National Climatic Data Center reported.

Alberto "Abu" Gonzales Not Worried About Lying to Congress

Regarding the recent firing of U.S. Attorneys around the country, Senate Judiciary Chairman Pat Leahy (D-VT) had this to say: "“I am outraged that the Attorney General was less than forthcoming with the Senate while under oath before the Judiciary Committee."

Last time I checked, "less than forthcoming while under oath" is perjury. However, I am sure Gonzales is losing little sleep over this. After a few hearings and press conferences by indignant Democrats, all will return to normal.
