Dr. Tim Ball, renowned environmental consultant and former climatology professor at the University of Winnipeg, says Obama flunks global warming 101 on Fargo flooding. Canada Free Press:
President Obama used recent flooding in Fargo, North Dakota to push his misguided belief in global warming. His comment, “If you look at the flooding that’s going on right now in North Dakota and you say to yourself, ‘If you see an increase of two degrees, what does that do, in terms of the situation there?’”
A two-degree warmer North Dakota would mean less snowfall, therefore less flooding. Spring flooding along the Red River of the north is due to snow melt and the geography of the region.

Finland tackles growing rabbit population menace. News 24:
While other cities grapple with traffic or pollution problems, the Finnish capital of Helsinki is taking aim at the humble rabbit.
"Rabbits have caused severe damage... We are talking about costs of hundreds of thousands of euros," said Antti J. Rautiainen, a construction project manager with the city authorities.
The floppy-eared fiends have been nibbling their way through some of Helsinki's most-prized city gardens, damaging footpaths as they build their burrows underground, and eating into €200 000 from the parks' €12,5-million annual budget in the process.
The rabbits have proved to be more than a match for authorities in Helsinki, who have tried and failed to keep the population under control.
"We have also used guns, bows, nets and traps," Rautiainen explained.
Those efforts appear to have failed.
That's right, Carter the pussy couldn't defend himself against a rabbit. Oh shit. What's next, Pbama being bitten by a squirrel? There has to be a parrallel incident.
Na. If I were a conspiracy theoritst maybe I'd suspect censorship. The image hosts I use are free, and once in a while they get glitchy and something goes awry. I checked some other same URLs and they're fine. Thanks for letting me know.
