On this breezy December morning we're confronted with an existential debate given that AOC tells us we've all got less than 12 years before the sky falls.
Here's the question . . .

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Kansas City could shatter records Wednesday when it comes to high temperatures as we're expected to warm up into the 70s. But the bigger story will likely be how windy it's going to be. If you thought it was windy Tuesday, that was child's play compared to the gusts we'll see Wednesday.
KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -- The National Weather Service has issued a high wind warning for Wednesday, with gusts up to 65 mph. They're advising everyone to tie down outdoor ornaments and furniture, slow down with both hands on the wheel, and watch for debris coming your way.
"If we do see that 60 MPH wind tomorrow it is possible that we could see wind caused outages," said Andrew Baker, Evergy spokesperson. "We do have crews ready to go if that is the event but that's a high number where the potential is there."

The deadly tornado outbreak that tore through the central US was so unusual in its duration and strength, particularly for December, that many people are speculating if climate change has something to do with it.
Record-breaking tornadoes on late Friday and early Saturday left at least 88 people dead across five states in the South and Midwest, making it the most deadly tornado outbreak in the U.S. in more than a decade. At least 40 tornadoes were reported across nine states, an unusually high amount for December.
