Squelching the rumor

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) today denied rumors that he is considering a run for the Presidency.

They have all been blamed on man-made "global warming."

And that is just the tip of the rapidly growing iceberg with an "endangered" polar bear clinging on for dear life. For the full list, check out this web site.

What is particularly remarkable is that global warming continues to accomplish these amazing feats in spite of the fact that the global temperature has not increased in the past eight years.
