The Heat is On

One reason why I think the global warming theorists are probably right is the way weather patterns are changing here in Perth. Here it is, still only early November, and it is going to be 39 today and forecast 40 for tomorrow. 40 would be a new record.
We know that rain fall is declining in WA, precipitating (if you’ll excuse the pun) a chronic water shortage problem. There is also much anecdotal evidence that plant growing patterns are changing. So we have an observed phenomenon (local climate change) and a strongly supported theory to account for it (global warming). No, this does not mean global warming is a fact, but it is a real and growing probability. And as the statisticians remind us, life is about probabilities.
