My BS meter is beeping.

"ABC News wants to hear from you. We're currently producing a report on the increasing changes in our physical environment, and are looking for interesting examples of people coping with the differences in their daily lives. Has your life been directly affected by global warming?

We want to hear and see your stories. Have you noticed changes in your own backyard or hometown? The differences can be large or small — altered blooming schedules, unusual animals that have arrived in your community, higher water levels encroaching on your property."

Unbelievable.  As you must know by now, I'm a global warming skeptic.  That said, even I know that crap like this has no relation to actual research or modeling (though I am sure whatever report they're producing will mix in these worthless anecdotes with discussion from experts) and only feeds into worst case scenario scare-mongering.  When you're dealing with very small potential changes on a global scale over a long time period, Gladys' gladiolas just don't matter.
