Climate Change Deniers: No Door County Cherry Pie For You This Year
The deniers, usually citing climate experts like Dr. Professor Rush the Limbaugh, whooped it up this spring when we had record-setting warm temps.
You can see their smarts - - masked behind anonymous screen names, of course - - sprinkled liberally on items I post at this blog, with comments such as:
Fish Creek - Door County in northeastern Wisconsin ranks among the country's top cherry producers. But this year's crop could be the pits.And you don't have to listen to environmentalists - - even though they have been sounding the alarm for years and years and years.
Bob Lautenbach of Lautenbach's Orchard in Fish Creek... tells WLUK-TV the 2012 cherry crop in Door County has all but failed. He says the county would normally produce about 8 to 10 million pounds, but this year the prediction is about half a million pounds.
That's because the warm March woke up the trees early, but several nights of frost then killed off the buds.
Door County growers say they'll try to keep their crop in the county this year, for tourists and locals to enjoy. Prices will be higher.
