    Spinal Tap “Re” unites… but fighting Global Warming and Climate Change?

    “Spinal Tap reunites to fight Climate Change” In MY mind it’s not too bizarre that a “fictional band” is “reuniting” to fight a fictional problem. All kidding aside, I am not a “disbeliever” in climate change. I do remain unconvinced...
