    Every time you post there is like circus music going off in the background.
    Thanks for the same personal opinion you posted last time. Meanwhile in the peer-reviewed scientific world:

    State of the Climate
    Global Analysis

    June 2011

    "Global Highlights

    * The combined global land and ocean average surface temperature for June 2011 was the seventh warmest on record at 16.54C (60.94F), which is 0.58C (1.04F) above the 20th century average of 15.5C (59.9F).

    * June 2011 was the 316th consecutive month with a global temperature above the 20th century average. The last month with below-average temperature was February 1985.

    * The June worldwide average land surface temperature was 0.89C (1.60F) above the 20th century average of 13.3C (55.9F)—the fourth warmest on record.

    * The global average ocean surface temperature was the 10th warmest June on record, at 0.47C (0.85F) above average. Neither El Nio nor La Nia conditions were present during June 2011. According to NOAA's Climate Prediction Center, these ENSO-neutral conditions are expected to continue into the Northern Hemisphere fall 2011.

    * The first half of 2011 (January–June) was the 11th warmest on record for the combined global land and ocean surface temperature. Separately, the worldwide average ocean temperature was also the 11th warmest January–June and the worldwide average land temperature was the 12th warmest such period."

    "Direct observations find that CO2 is rising sharply due to human activity. Satellite and surface measurements find less energy is escaping to space at CO2 absorption wavelengths. Ocean and surface temperature measurements find the planet continues to accumulate heat. This gives a line of empirical evidence that human CO2 emissions are causing global warming."

    Empirical evidence that humans are causing global warming

    Re: Gov. urges Oklahomans to pray for rain

    Why don't you guys take this to another thread about "climate change".....
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    "The power of prayer is a wonderful thing, and I would ask every Oklahoman to look to a greater power this weekend and ask for rain," Fallin said in a news release on Thursday.
    Fallin on Thursday also issued a ban on outdoor burning for the western half of the state because of the extreme drought conditions.

    Prayer does not work, never has, never will. There is ZERO scientific evidence. it only give people that warm fuzzy feeling.
    Pretty sad that topics like this pop up when there are more important things to talk about. But hey, you go right ahead and mock other peoples beliefs. Just don't be surprised/offended if others mock you for yours.

    I don't see what the big deal is. Prayer has as much chance of changing the weather out there as anything else they could do.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Im really not interested in yet another mindless charade ala 'AGW climate change." I dont know of too many people who dont recognize climate change as a basic scientific reality and occurence that has occurred throughout recroded history and across the globe. I just like to point out how stupid these faith based individuals are when they claim any and every naturally occuring event is caused by 'global warming'. Their gods have trained their puppets well!

    I didnt realize that people of faith believe in global warming because of said faith. Im not really sure what one has to do with the other. Maybe im just odd.

    Nobody is promoting a religion and nobody is forcing anyone to pray. Lighten up people.

    I most certainly do not want my politicians telling me to pray. Stick to doing your job.

    No. He needs to open a can of STFU and keep the religious comments to himself.

    People that blindly accept anything they are spoon fed regarding AGW regardless of the number of times things change or the people are caught in outright lies and dishonest procedures are 'true believers'. They justify and defned before the actual defense comes out. They believe man must be causing climate change because it fits with their ideology and anyone that doesnt buy into their bull**** is a heretic. Just like the fact that even thought the GLOBE and in particular this region has throughout history experienced far WORSE droughts, Oklahomas current woes must be man made. True believers baby...
