In the Journal Sentinel's Quick Hit (12/20/2008), Mabel Wong warns that: "Anecdotal observations from laymen..." regarding global warming "...don't prove anything."
She, of course, is right about this.
But then Ms Wong provides us with nothing less than anecdotal evidence!
The obvious purpose is to undermine the international scientific community's consensus that global warming is a real threat that demands immediate and decisive action.
Common Mabel. You can't have it both ways!
