Lately, there seems to be fewer posts on topics other than climate
change at indymedia. Are people staying away because they don't like
seeing my posts on global warming?
I'm aware that people with "Minnesota Nice" don't talk about global
warming. I learned that the hard way. People at TCmetro listserve and
other public listserves have told me that my messages on global
warming are offensive. The moderator on mn-politics-national has
permanently banned me from participating, for no good reason at all.

New record warm (daily highs and lows) have been set at climate
stations in Minnesota over the last three days.
Kare 11 (NBC) news is playing up going back to "normals" next week.
The "normals" are defined by NOAA NWS as the average temperatures over
the last 30 years (1971-2000), updated ever 10 years. The "normals"
have been increasing in the Midwest, and elsewhere.
Exceeding record daily warm temperatures for three days in a row is
not normal. Kare 11 and the other TV, and radio, stations need to tell
it like it is. Honest communications are needed now. Not saying that
regional climate change is already happening is misleading the public
on global warming. The public is uninformed. Regional climate change
and global warming are happening, there is no doubt on that.
The Twin Cities professionals in weather and climate, and those
reporting the news to the public, rarely talk about regional climate
change and global warming. Are the professionals just following orders
from their managers? Who's giving the orders on climate change?

orders on global warming"
