So it's snowing again in Portland. And from what I hear, it's been a miserably cold winter back east. Driving to work this morning, I was reminded of a (drunken) argument I had several years ago with some of my boys back home. It was a particularly cold winter at the time and they were convinced, once and for all, that global warming was a “dumb conspiracy cooked up by angry hippies”; and that the near freezing temps and foot of snow outside were irrefutable proof. I scratched my head in awe, and encouraged them to do a little more research. But my plea fell on deaf ears. As one buddy proudly barked at the end of our conversation, “Take that hippie bullshit back to Portland.” Man, Galileo's got nothing on me.
