We've repeatedly set new records for dry and warm weather, many times in recent years. Anyone who thinks climate change is a hoax is watching too much Fox News.

Now is the time to think about how each of us can save water. It is becoming unconscionable to give precious drinking water to lawns. Turn off water when brushing teeth. Run dishwasher only when full etc Hand water seldom for special plants. Shower less and so on. the reservoirs are very low. Do a rain dance.

Remember this simple rule:

Unusually hot days - obvious sign of global warming

Unusually cold days - just a random fluctuation in weather. Anyone who disagrees is clearly too stupid to know the difference between climate and weather.

Picking apart a poor argument from the other side does not invalidate that side's position, only that argument. You must address the strongest of your opponents' arguments first. Remember that simple rule instead.
