Mostly someone spouting off. I think I was remembering an op-ed by Robert Kennedy Jr. (I looked it up, published in 2008):
In Virginia, the weather also has changed dramatically. Recently arrived residents in the northern suburbs, accustomed to today's anemic winters, might find it astonishing to learn that there were once ski runs on Ballantrae Hill in McLean, with a rope tow and local ski club. Snow is so scarce today that most Virginia children probably don't own a sled. But neighbors came to our home at Hickory Hill nearly every winter weekend to ride saucers and Flexible Flyers.
(And you can read the rest of the text from the link, it's plainly in the context of climate change.)
''I bought a sled in '96 for my daughter,'' said Dr. Michael Oppenheimer, a scientist at the nonprofit Environmental Defense Fund. ''It's been sitting in the stairwell, and hasn't been used..."
And Dr. Oppenheimer, among other ecologists, points to global warming as perhaps the most significant long-term factor.
I remember when climate change (back when it was called global warming) was responsible for lack of snow in winter.
Now that (in my area, and elsewhere) we are getting record snows, guess what causes that...
Probably amazed he didn't know about Stack Overflow.
Hah, very true! If you know about Google, you should know about Stack Overflow.
Microsoft cannot even successfully bring a phone to market. Don't we think curing cancer is just a wee bit harder?
On the other hand, some researchers think that cancer can be targeted and destroyed by viruses, so Microsoft might have a leg up.
No. This article clearly means we'll be transporting ourselves to Mars before the week is out.
It doesn't happen that fast. Based on news like this we've heard in the past, though, transporting to Mars is just 10 years away.
Why is the Republican support not there? Donald Trump has the most primary votes of any Republican in history.
Even with this, most Republicans voted for someone other than Trump.
How come everyone's going so slow if it's called rush hour?
