Cathy Stepp's holiday gift to Wisconsin: An end to climate change

Hey, folks, it's just the world that's changing.

DNR purges climate change from web page.  (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 12/28/2016)
Officials replaced this wording: 
“Earth’s climate is changing. Human activities that increase heat-trapping ('greenhouse') gases are the main cause.” 
The old text goes on to say “scientists agree” that the Great Lakes region will see longer summers and shorter winters, decreased ice cover and changes in rain and snow patterns “if climate change patterns continue.”

Potential impacts from climate change (main section 3-page report)
  • water supply and pollution
  • agriculture
  • human health
  • property and infrastructure
  • lakes, streams, and fish
  • wetlands and shorebirds
  • recreation and tourism
  • forests and terrestrial wildlife

Not to worry! sez Ms Stepp.

From Alone Together, Dave Mason's 1st solo album after leaving Traffic.   It debuted on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart for the week ending July 4, 1970, peaked at #22 and stayed around for 25 weeks.  It remains a Retiring Guy favorite.  In fact, I still have the marble-pressed vinyl recording.
