Miserable Winter

Miserable winter we're having ... high of 81 F. today ... lots of sunshine ... a REALLY FAT and sassy squirrel just scampered along the fencetop outside my window ... last night, I was bitten twice by a REALLY FAT and sassy mosquito - gotta watch those December mosquitos! ... just like those December hurricanes with names like "Episilon" - they'll sneak up on ya ... wait a sec ...

December WHATS???

The grass in my yard is still green. Joggers jog by in shorts.

Did we cause global warming, or is this part of a natural cycle that would have occurred with or without our influence on the planet? According to Whitley Strieber, co-author of The Coming Global Superstorm, we are in the midst of a natural cycle that will end our civilization. His novel about this coming Ice Age event, The Day After Tomorrow, was made into a TV movie.

Let's assume for a moment that Strieber didn't actually need to sell more books or make another movie deal. Question: If you truly believed you knew of some coming terrible event that would end Civilization As We Know It, would you tell everybody, like Strieber, or would you keep it to yourself?
