Flood after flood, more and more hot temperatures, record droughts in other places, record numbers of tornados and hurricanes........... anybody see a trend here? Just to clarify, I'm talking to climate change deniers here, folks, from our not-too-bright president on down. How much visible, measurable evidence will it take to make them accept reality?
