Another Warning About Climate Change, Heavier Rains

A UW-Madison expert tells a Waukesha conference that this summer's heavy floods are the sort of weather event more likely under consensus climate change models.

These predictions have been made by state and federal officials for years, though they are regularly debunked by conservative radio talk show hosts who have far more experience with hot air.

Local case in point: Mark Belling

Mark said last Wednesday on his WISN-AM afternoon show that carbon emissions keep the planet warm and will help ward off the coming era of global cooling, so he hoped that utilities would burn the dirtiest coal available and Prius hybrids would be outlawed so we could have warmer weather.

I know, I know, Belling is such a comedian that this could have all been a joke.

Or not.
