    Joe, You don’t need us to tell you that the number of ClimateProgress followers has pretty much always been on the rise.

  2. Ken Barrows says:

    NPR also deemed the story worth mentioning last night. Maybe one person writes local and national news.

  3. They’re right. We don’t need them to tell us that gas prices are on the rise. We need them to tell us that the climate is changing rapidly and we’d better start doing something about it!

    Has Bjorn given his informed consent to this procedure, which sounds rather uncomfortable?

    And one ‘Tweeter'(I prefer Twit or Twitterer)-‘Big Brother’ Rupe, and, later, his head, cryonically preserved in a jar, communicating by waves of pure etheric malignancy. At first, you think it merely tinnitus, but then the dread reality dawns. He is inside your head!
