Bloomberg news reports that “Climate Central” released their 2050 weather forecast for the Big Apple. Using “established scientific methods,” Climate Central predicts that in 2050, New York’s August will be substantially hotter than Atlanta’s current temperature.

Several years ago, Rocky’s broker called him with an offering of General Motors 40-year bonds, which would “resolve GM’s pension liabilities once-and-for-all.” Rocky’s response was a polite “no, thank you.” Rocky thinks beach-goers should treat Climate Central’s forecast with similar skepticism.
In particular, he notes that “established science” also predicts that the quarter-mile-wide Asteroid “Apophis” may collide with earth in 2036. If this happens, it will release 100,000 times more energy than the Hiroshima nuclear blast, and probably put the earth into another ice age.

[Disclosure: The General Motors 7.375% of May 2049 are in default. On matters of weather, Rocky always keeps an umbrella, water bottle, and reflective thermal blanket in the trunk of his car. So he's fully hedged]
It looks like old-guard Soviets may be beaming radiation at the White House again. That is Rocky’s explanation for the rapid and bountiful vegetation growing in the new White House garden.
On March 19th, the New York Times reported that First Lady Michelle Obama would plant a White House vegetable garden. [Click here.]
Less than 90 days later, Mrs. O and the students from the Bancroft Elementary School were back at the White House harvesting waist-high crops.
Crops cannot grow this fast (except in the Amazon), so Rocky offers two more explanations for the improbable bounty:
1) Genetically modified crops. Seriously modified.
2) Global warming. In Washington, there is so much hot air that the growing season starts early.
Most likely the crops were planted fully grown — and it’s just a photo opportunity. This sure isn’t Eleanor Roosevelt’s Victory Garden !
