More Evidence Of Global Warmingby Brad Warbiany
Early Spring? We need Kyoto!
A new pair of hands pulled Punxsutawney Phil from his stump this year, so it was only fitting that the groundhog offered a new prediction.
Phil did not see his shadow on Friday, which, according to German folklore, means folks can expect an early spring instead of six more weeks of winter.
Since 1886, Phil has seen his shadow 96 times, hasn’t seen it 15 times and there are no records for nine years, according to the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club. The last time Phil failed to see his shadow was in 1999.
However, not everyone was convinced. One Global Warming Denier had this to say:
Rick McFerron, an administrator at Indiana University of Pennsylvania some 30 miles away, walked the whole way to the ceremony to celebrate his 60th birthday and to raise money for breast cancer research.
He said he was skeptical of the groundhog’s prediction.
“It’s supposed to get bitter cold this weekend,” McFerron said.
Just how much did Exxon pay you, McFerron?
