Recently, California’s Governor Jerry Brown has said that the state’s chronic drought proves that “climate change is not a hoax.”
If you believe that man-made global warming – or its catch-all Siamese twin term ‘climate change’ – is causing the latest California Drought, then like a church parishioner – you are a true believer whose mind may not be changed on the issue.

In 1977, experts said that freak lightning storms and fires in California were caused by global cooling.
This year, Jet Stream dips are blamed on global warming. They make Alaska warm, California dry and Florida cold:
