It is Real: Global Warming

The Prez-elect has changed locations. He's left the Windy City for the heat of Hawaii to expose his pecs to paparazzi. This seems to be mandatory for world leaders now--France's Sarkozy, Russia's Putin, and now Barry.

No wonder Obama is concerned about global warming. I'd head to the beach and study climate change too if I wasn't busy trying to keep water lines from freezing here in the Osage Cuestas. No bare pecs here. Frostbite is a real possibility particularly if one slips on the ice, cracks their head, and lays unconscious in the brutal wind for too long.

Here's a political cartoon from Lisa Benson of the Washington Post Writers Group for all the sunbathers out there. Don't forget sun screen. The cooking skin increases harmful carbon emissions.
