Waxman the taxman...needs the facts, man...

Waxman promises quick action on climate

WASHINGTON (AP) — The chairman of a key House committee said Thursday he will move "quickly and decisively" to push legislation curbing greenhouse gases with a goal of passing climate legislation out of his committee before Memorial Day.

Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., opening the new Congress' first hearing on the threats from global warming, said inaction on the climate issue is causing uncertainties that make it more difficult to emerge from the recession.
Gosh...that was quick!!!
It was 20 degrees below zero at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, but the wind chill made it feel like 37 below zero.

Vermont has no previous ice jam this early on record. The earliest previously took place on 1/1/85. THAT WOULD BE 1785, friends.

Montana had an ice jam warning back on 12/18/08. When was the last time they had one so early in the season? about never. The earliest prior to this year would have been January of ' in 1894.

Maine earliest 12/20/08...previously 1780.
Illinois earliest 12/22/08...previously 1868.
New Hampshire earliest 12/21/08...previously 1835.

NOAA: 2008 Temperature for U.S. Near Average, was Coldest Since 1997; Below Average for December

Earth is "on the brink of entering another Ice Age" that will last for the next 100,000 years...
