I do not want to be political in this blog, politics is not a subject that interests me. But, Barbara Boxer's citing of hot weather this month in Brazil as demonstrating 'climate change' at a Senate hearing today is just too much. As she should have learned in fourth grade, it is SUMMER in Brazil. February is the hottest month of the year in Rio. There is nothing unusual about three days above 100° in Brazil in February.
It is just embarrassing to hear this stated on Capitol Hill (the link will take you to the videotape so you can see/hear it for yourself). This debate needs to be carried on at a much higher level.
