    Dear Al Gorelioni:

    Where is your Global Warming God now?

    Please tell him to bring on Global Warming.

    We are running out of salt.

  2. Th effects of global warming is felt in various ways. Warming waters in the ocean accounts for storm systems and upheavals in snow and rain patterns. Global warming does not mean no more winter storms. It means that storms will be more intense in some regions, etc.

    When I was little we had storms like this one and there were ones that my parents and grandparents talked about often. If global warming is not a factor here, then it is likely that the pattern that was around 100 or so years ago is repeating itself.
