    President Barack Obama signed an executive order Friday to “prepare the nation” for the dire consequences of global warming by establishing a new task force aimed in part at steering local communities toward making “smarter” investments to prepare for climate change-caused catastrophes.
    “The impacts of climate change—including an increase in prolonged periods of excessively high temperatures, more heavy downpours, an increase in wildfires, more severe droughts, permafrost thawing, ocean acidification, and sea-level rise—are already affecting communities, natural resources, ecosystems, economies, and public health across the Nation,” the executive order states.

    The 10-page order establishes the Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience to advise the Obama administration. One of the goals of the order seems to be to set ground rules for cooperative development goals at the local level.
    The order says to “identify opportunities to support and encourage smarter, more climate-resilient investments by States, local communities, and tribes, including by providing incentives through agency guidance, grants, technical assistance, performance measures, safety considerations, and other programs.”
    The task force is comprised of seven Democratic governor of states, and one Republican governor of a territory, Gov. Eddie Calvo of Guam.
    The Democratic governors are Neil Abercrombie of Hawaii, Jerry Brown of California, Jay Inslee of Washington state, Jack Markell of Delaware, Martin O’Malley of Maryland, Pat Quinn of Illinois and Peter Shumlin of Vermont. The task force also includes local officials, including 14 mayors, two county officials and two tribal officials.

    I don't know about you and everyone else but I heard nothing of this from traditional news sources today, not a thing.

    I rarely watch local news, but I have noticed an odd trend. Obviously not anything that proves "Climate Change" wrong...but here goes. When I do flip on the local news/weather, they show what year that the record highs/lows occurred on that day. Almost all were in the 1800's or mid-1900's. There is an occasional high of 87 on November 1st (making this up) in 1985, but inevitably they are all scattered.

    I've done enough statistical analysis to more than suggest that 150 years is a small sample size to conclusively prove that the earth is getting warmer/colder because of humans.
