Today In Depressing Climate Change News

Reading the Dallas Morning News I find that 2006 is the hottest year ever in north Texas, beating the 1999 record. The average temperature with less than a week to go is 69.3 degrees. The old record was 68.6. I haven't spent much time in Texas in the summer, but the hottest year ever in Texas sounds pretty damn miserable to me. Scientists are predicting changes in vegetation and animal species here within 20 years.
