Great point: "Just as steroids make the baseball player stronger and increase his chances of hitting home runs, greenhouse gases are the steroids of the climate system, they increase the chances of record breaking heat to occur compared to record breaking cold."

The image is effectively scary also of the overly pumped up iron man.

You have me curious to learn more about Dr. Gerald Meehl, Sr. Scientist, National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).

Hopefully, you will not groan too loud if I had : You won't be 'a girly man' if you do admit to friends that climate change is real and presently caused by humans.
