I thought Drudge was a radical right winger? Today his headline is a pro environmental story about the world is changing:

I never thought Drudge was a radical right winger, but he definitely has a bias toward conservative politics.

No, Drudge is a radical sludge dredger.

Wow, I have to wonder if Jimmy Carter wants to be remembered as an attack submarine. I'm sure he'll graciously accept.

Before I read the Drudge Report lead sheet, I thought the correct response to your statement would have been, "Yes, and I would like to be remembered as a tuna fish sandwich."

Oh, well.

Drudge is obviously not as radically right wing as you, Jay. [Roll Eyes]

Thought this blogger hit some neat points about those pics:

American photographer Gary Braasch has been documenting images of environmental change since 1999. This webpage at the BBC's website has some examples of his work.

Braasch makes the claim that his photo comparisons are documentation of global warming. Maybe. But I have the following questions. Follow the pictures at this link as my questions follow their order in the BBC presentation.

Do reductions in glaciers show evidence of current environment damage or the lagging effects of a previous Ice Age tens of thousands of years ago?
Is soil erosion really that much different now than any previous era of this planet's geological history?
It seems to me that snowfall varies from year to year.
It seems to me also that bugs have been moving around the planet for some time now, but maybe I misunderstood the memo.
Needless to say, there is much debate as to the effect man can have on the environment. I am certainly no scientist and have no expertise on the issue. But I also haven't seen where these critical questions have been adequately addressed in the scientific community. And I have heard other trained scientists ask them.

Until sufficient answers are given, the photos are at best interesting comparisons of geophysical change and at worst mere anecdotal "evidence" of man's destruction of nature intended to support the socialist agenda most environmental organizations propose governments adopt.
