And I'm not just talking about Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore. There are so many buffoons who deserve honorable mention. In the spotlight today:
Fog over San Francisco thins by a third due to climate changeIt's worth remembering, the taxpayers of the state of California, a state that is on the verge of fiscal collapse, paid to have this study conducted on the impact "climate change" has on fog.

The coastal fog along the Californian coast has declined by a third over the past 100 years – the equivalent of three hours cover a day, new research shows.
And it is not just bad for scenery, the reduction in the cooling effect of the fog could damage the health of the huge Redwood Forests nearby.
"Since 1901, the average number of hours of fog along the coast in summer has dropped from 56 per cent to 42 per cent, which is a loss of about three hours per day," said the study leader Dr James Johnstone at the University of California.
He said that it was unclear whether this is part of a natural cycle of the result of human activity, but the fog is receding because of a reduction in the difference between the temperature of the sea and the land. [link]
Note too that, by God, the study was conducted and there was an impact found! What purpose it serves is anyone's guess but you can expect Crazy Al and his minions to see this as a dire foreshadowing of the end of the planet. What Evil Lurks Within The Receding Fog Bank?: An Inconvenient Truth II.
How's that Gulf Stream V working out, by the way, Big Al?
