Mother Nature's Sense of Humor

There were no grades, pop quizzes or textbooks. But a speech by former Vice President Al Gore at Stanford University on Tuesday night offered more than 1,000 pupils a crash course in global warming. - Mercury News (12/6)

I remember when Al Gore came to New York City to deliver a speech on Global Warming back in 2004. The day he gave the speech, temperatures in The Big Apple dropped to the lowest in 121 years. I almost froze my butt off walking from the Fulton Street Subway station to the World Financial Center.
