We had a fairly warm morning of -12F. It is -1F now.

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

I was born in Beverly, MA(across the harbor from Salem). Grew up in NE PA, just outside of Scranton. So have always experienced winter. In 1980 I came to the Midwest for college. Except for a 6 year stint in NC, I have been in the Duluth, MN/Superior, WI ever since. I now live just east of Superior, five miles from Lake Superior.
Needless to say we get cold and occasionally extensive lake effect snow. Nothing like the UP of MI or Buffalo, but a bit. We have over 2 feet on the ground. The coldest it has been so far is -17F. We will see close to if not -30F before spring.
It is what it is. As I tell people, I would rather a few weeks below 0F than months of 100F+. I can always put on more clothes and create heat. I can only get so naked and cannot easily create cool. Heat is much less expensive to create than cold.

Re: Midwest unprepared
The author of this 13-year-old opinion piece
Our world was hotter 1,000 years ago
is either a liar or stupid. The author is not a scientist he is an investor. CFO of his own company. The earth was not warmer 1000 years ago. The medieval Warm Period was not a global phenomenon.

Re: Midwest unprepared
Emissions laws are not authoritarian. These laws are doing exactly what the Constitution spelled out its purpose is. This is the part RWNJs ignore.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Always verify quotes or you might look stupid
Thomas Jefferson never said or wrote those words. I wonder if you are able to figure out who did write them.
Even so it does not support you in any way. I know of no one that thinks that clause overrides everything. That would be stupid. The writer is not saying general welfare is a throw away term and not a purpose of the Constitution, but like everything else there are limits. These limits are powers outlined in the Constitution.
I know. Understanding what words mean is hard.

Who other than fringe people are calling for this? Who? Where has anyone of note equated the two things? You are the only person I know that has even brought up such a ridiculous idea.

Re: Midwest unprepared
Has there been a mandate? Any mandate? Market forces are driving the change. Why are you so anti-free market?
There are electric cars comparably priced to ICE cars, and more every year.

Re: Midwest unprepared
Again you deflect. Answer the question or admit you are spouting shit again. What mandate?
Do you truly think once the market matures there will not be used electric cars for sale? Are there any cheap used ICE cars less than 5 years old?
You are radically anti-freemarket.

We drove into the DECC today for the MLK Rally. Just a miserable day weather wise. Lots of standing water. Probably freeze solid by Wednesday.
