    With all the extreme storms like tornadoes in places that had never been touched or enhanced drastically. Can one say this is natural or global warming. I guess those that don’t believe are part of the problem,in one form or the other. This is a wake up call for new Englanders, that we are not exempt from mother natures wrath. When will our leaders stop rolling around in the tax payers money and listen to scientist and help us fix this planet.
