New Mexico Senator Tom Udall says that bold action is needed to stop New Mexico from overheating and drying out.
The general concept that Washington DC controls the climate is pretty far into the realm of insanity. But ignoring that, his assumptions are idiotic. If you remove the UHI contaminated thermometers, there is little indication that New Mexico is either warming or drying out long term. The state has been very wet for the last two years.
Droughts were worse when I was born there in the 1950s.
As Trump pointed out again last night, the US is being run by incompetent idiots.
