Global warming !!

Yeah y’all ever heard of God!! He’s the one who gives us the weather, the stars, moon and our planet! NOT humans!!! He controls everything. NOT us. So maybe it’s a sign the end times are here. You ever thought of that! Read your Bible it’s not a dust collector! Sounds like democrats only believe in themselves anyways!! Not America or the American people so don’t try to run the weather you won’t win it either!!!

Seriously Steve??

History has only proven to us over time that weather patterns are changing. Ever heard of the Ice Age? Ever wonder how we got out of that? Weather changes. The Earth over time began to get warmer and started to melt the glaciers, that is still happening today only at an extremely vast rate.
The one thing we still have yet to prove in history is whether or not there is a God, whether you like to admit it or not. I do believe in a higher power. However, that higher power does not create weather or have anything to do with it's patterns. Earth has control over weather, and everything on Earth has an effect on that. Simple science really.

Lubbock

Lubbock in NW Texas seems to be on the cusp between this region and the Texas/Oklahoma region. Neither prediction applies to us.

Lubbock just set a record 99 days (since 1911) with no measurable precip, from 11/8/17 to 2/15/18. It was broken 2/16 with .01" rainfall measured at the airport...

Jackson on global warming.

You nailed it. As you said, Jackson, plain and simple, the earth is always changing. Someone way more advanced than humans in charge of that. Praise Yahovah!

Global warming/Climate Change

Oh course it’s real. The world climate is always changing. It was when there were no humans on the planet and it will always be changing. Just NOT caused by humans. Get real. Study history.

TELL THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IT'S REAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
