Alta Sierra, CA — Local retiree Sal Smith wants everyone to know that the recent heatwave proves “that Global Warming is really here.” Sal, a former civil engineer from Richmond, CA, has been going door-to-door in Alta Sierra warning other retirees that our recent heatwave is Global Warming.
“You see, I tell everyone that it’s just gonna get hotter and hotter. Soon it will be 106 in December and the ocean will be up to Roseville,” he told Gish Gallop.
One resident, Mildred Williams, a former elementary school teacher, said she did not appreciate his preachiness. “You know, I understand Sal’s passion, but the weather is not Global Warming,” she commented. “I just wish he’d go play golf or something.”
According to Wikipedia, “… the cause of global warming has been increasing. In its fourth assessment (AR4 2007) of the relevant scientific literature, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reported that scientists were more than 90% certain that most of Global Warming was being caused by increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases produced by human activities.” But what the hell do they know?
“If this keeps up, we’re gonna have beach front property in Alta Sierra. It would probably be good for the deer, I suppose. But they’re having a heck of a time of it right now, ” he noted.
