    Not even on the new age radar screen! Millions care more about the release of new photos of Kim’s BFA. After all, doesn’t rain belong to the State once it becomes storm run-off? Surely, if billions of pseudo-technocrats can support AGW as settled science, then H2O regulation is sure to follow. It’s not the one thing, it’s the dismal tide !
