Global Warming and other random thoughts

Has anyone other than me seen the wheels coming off of the AGW train?The big name scientists who backed it are starting to back away. More and more is coming out about all the flawed, or in some cases faked data. The Medieval Warming Period has thrown a wrench in the works, because, gee whiz, things got warmer and there were NO cars back then; not much heavy industry either.Meanwhile those that are making money on this scam(like AL Gore) are nowhere to be found. The network TV stations still play the (untrue) ads about polar bear decline and people are still worrying about costal flooding. I predict that within 5 years the same folks who are screaming about AGW will be screaming about the coming ICE AGE. . . .Anyway, it is about time to start those tomato, pepper, sguash,cucumber,etc. seeds in your kitchen. They need a good 6 weeks to grow large enough to transplant outside after the frost is over( usually April 15th here in the Greenville area). I am trying a few heirloom varieties this time so we will see.I will post pictures as they ( hopefully) grow.With Spring approaching there will be deals in the Nursery so keep watching. . .The Breath of Spring/Winter honeysuckle are blooming right now, and don't they smell great! We have a few for sale, contact us if you are interested. . They will take sun/partial shade,grow to a height of 6' and a width of 5' and flower from now through February. Looking to the future-The Piedmont Plant and Flower Festival will be happening the last of April/first of May. Come check us out!

AGW: what a scam, and on a global scale. How about criminal charges for those hucksters.

I wonder how else we're being scammed, and don't even know it yet?

Hi, my name is Justin French.
I recently noticed your article on knockout roses. I loved the article and was wondering if you would mind linking your article to my site. I work for a site called BrighterBlooms.com and we carry a wide variety of landscape shrubs and trees. We would be willing to offer you a plant of your choice off of our website, BrighterBlooms.com. Or if you choose, a cash payment. The value of these would be directly linked to the value of your websites content and information. Terms can be negotiated.

Details about our site are below.

Also, If you have any questions or need anything feel free to call me at brighterblooms@gmail.com or (704)644-4484.

What is with Linsay Grahm?

Now he's joining forces with Kerry and Leiberman to do some kind of a piece meal cap and crap on us, starting with electricity and then moving on to transportation and industry.
