Consider who's talking about it, and why.
Local climate change is real all right. When I was growing up here, people could wash laundry in the morning, hang it out to dry in the afternoon, and have clean-smelling dry laundry to put away after supper. After twenty years of too many cars on the roads and too many trees in what used to be crop and pasture land, I'm wondering if I'll ever live to see weather like that again, in the same place. Part of this blog's purpose is to document climate change.
But who's talking about it, how accurately, and to what purpose?
