So a TORNADO rips thru the CNN Center...
All I can say is:

When Al Gore was due to receive his Nobel Prize, CNN was hootin' and hollerin' about how much BS global warming was since Stockholm was at 4 degrees above zero at the time of the ceremony. wotta riot, right?

Well, God plays strange tricks on people, doesn't (s)he?

I had mentioned on this board at that time that Stockholm was probably 15 below at that time of year before global warming...but what the hell do I know?

4. Do you really think God did it? That is the kind of thinking Jerry Falwell uses.

16. Look, being an Atheist, I am so sick and tired of people using the God did it meme
if it is warranted or not. Any time I see God did it in the topic of a post this Atheist is going to come out swinging, no more sitting on the sidelines while others push their fantasy godland bullshit.

13. Yeah, I'd be very careful about implying that kind of stuff
because when the religious nutjobs use it to imply oh, say, divine punishment for New Orleans, it's usually not too popular around here.

ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- I always said if I ever was in a tornado, I'd come up with something better to say than it sounded like a freight train. I lied.



Moments after that telltale roar and frightening crash in the atrium of our building, I walked outside to see if there was any damage. I expected to see some trash cans knocked over, maybe a loose piece of roofing -- never expecting to see block after block of debris smack in the middle of downtown Atlanta.

At the Omni Hotel, curtains flapped in the wind through what was left of shattered windows. The street next to Centennial Olympic Park was littered with a 20-foot section of metal, pieces of insulation and large shards of glass. The first walking wounded were just coming outside, looking to the ambulances that were fighting their way through packed traffic.

A block away, bystanders and the first arriving firefighters were trying to remove a man from a collapsed parking lot booth. Blood was visible on his face as rescue workers moved him away from the debris.

Rescuers search for Atlanta tornado victims

ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- At least 20 homes in Atlanta's historic Cabbagetown neighborhood were flattened by a tornado that ripped through downtown Atlanta on Friday night, a spokeswoman for the mayor said.

Firefighters fear there could be people dead inside the ruins of a collapsed loft complex in the same neighborhood, the spokeswoman said.

There have been no deaths confirmed from the tornado, but at least 15 people were treated at two hospitals. Most of the injuries were minor cuts, scrapes and bruises, officials said.

The Fulton Cotton Mill Lofts, just east of downtown Atlanta, collapsed in a "pancake fashion," Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran said early Saturday.

9. Climate change is a much better term
Because the overall effect is extreme weather conditions not *necessarily* going to be warming everywhere.
But honesty compells me to say, that March *is* a transition month and its not totally unheard of for tornado out breaks to occur in the South at this time of year.

11. Yes,

17. CNN has done shows about climate change and it's effect on the planet
granted, Glenn Beck is in the network and doesn't believe in climate change, but on the whole I think they are treating it as the serious threat that it is.

I hope you aren't seriously reveling in the damage suffered by those people, are you?
