  1. Proof global warming is a hoax. The Chinese are really pulling one over on us. Jut because the land under many island countries is sinking is no reason to be alarmed. Now you don't even have to out on a boat in Miami to go fishing. Just hang the worm out your window. Life is good!

  2. now the north knows what south Texas has been going thru fron30 years. welcome to global warming. 🙁

  3. LOL same as every year, same 80 in Hawaii everyday of the year. No 90-100's+. Nice cool light trade winds, no need for A/C. Location, location, location.
