It's cold here today, teeth chattering cold.
And this begins:
History Guy: Boy, this cold is ridiculous. Hope those global warming nuts are paying attention.
Hiram: What do you mean?
HG: Well, it can't be this cold if the planet is heating up like they say.
Hiram: Well, actually one of the chief elements of climate change is extreme weather, you know, like what we've been having.
HG: Where do you get that from?
Hiram: Uh, I don't know, just reading things, I guess.
HG: You'll never convince me. Just look at it out there!
Hiram: Didn't you see in the paper that 2013 was the 4th hottest year on the planet?
HG: Whose statistics are that?
Hiram: I guess the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration).
HG: Yeah, but all of those think tanks are biased, all liberals. They get all their funding from Obama.
Q: What concept that you understand and believe is commonly misunderstood by your students, colleagues, neighbors? Do you ever try to correct these misunderstandings? Do you ever just want to move where Yaro is and be with the trees?
