Here in Orange County as in the rest of California, the liberal war on "global warming" or the more-chameleon-like "climate change" is impacting our lives and our liberty, most obviously via AB 30, the Enabling Act for expansion of the regulatory state backed Democratic Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez and Poll-acratic Gov. Schwarzenegger (whose policy stances seem to be driven solely by what will land him adulatory magazine covers).
Attorney General Jerry Brown -- the same guy who halted freeway building in the 1970s and early 80s because he thought it would restrain growth (it was the era of "small is good")-- is set to wield AB 32 like a scimitar on an enviro-jihad.
Which leads me to two new posts -- here and here -- by Mark Landsbaum over at Orange Punch. Mark sets his sets on the physical means by which temperatures are recorded, the pervasive of these means of measuring and how long we've been doing it. He links to a site called SurfaceStations.org, "a resource for climate station records and surveys."
