Talking about weather records that only date back to 1880 is a blip in time when it comes to studying atmospheric trends. Talk to me about how much warmer the earth was in 800 A.D than it is now, or how it was much, much colder in the 1400s through the 1700s.
The author is correct that you have to look beyond your kitchen window when examining weather patterns. But you also have to look back more than 140 years to get an honest picture of climate change. Just another amateur opining on a topic they don't really understand.

Maybe you should ask the taxpayers what they think, now that they don't have to supplement Medicaid to house people who cannot afford to pay for it themselves. Those union wages were just another form of taxation. Good riddance.

I took a direct flight on SW from ALB to DEN over a year ago. What the author probably means is non-stop service is coming.

If you are going to reference car weights, it would be nice if you knew what a car weighed. A Honda Accord with a couple passengers weighs over two tons.

Good move. Green Island is a dump.

New York has the highest Union membership rate in the country, with nearly 1 in 4 workers represented by a union. We've seen what has happened in other union-heavy states, so why would we expect anything else here? Too many New Yorkers have a sense of entitlement that brings with it high taxes and low growth. It is what it is, and the author is correct, there are no easy answers for those who want to stay here.

I bought a wood fireplace from Pine Lake Stoves in 2010 that was improperly and illegally installed. Ralph promised me he would correct it but then refused to return my calls and left me with a $7k loss. Other fireplace dealers have told me that Pine Lake has done many improper installs that endanger the lives of their customers. He has no morals or credibility and the Republicans should dump him. And I am a Republican who has repeatedly campaigned for Republicans in this area.

So if I live in the side of a hill, spend $30k on solar panels, turbines, and lead acid batteries, I can walk around with wet hair while eating un-toasted bagels and I'll save a whopping $150/month?!? Sign me up!

Joe wins. Overzealous prosecutors lose. Thanks for wasting taxpayer millions, you idiots.
