Sub-zero temperatures for the past week, snow up to my butt, and I have a burning (or freezing) question:
Where’s the global warming?
But don’t worry – government will ride to the rescue just like they did with Katrina. And Mr. Obama will heat things up with the festival called the Presidential Inauguration.
From the Denver Post’s David Harsanyi:
The carbon footprint of Barack Obama’s inauguration could exceed 575 million pounds of CO2. According to the Institute for Liberty, it would take the average U.S. household nearly 60,000 years of naughty ecological behavior to produce a carbon footprint equal to the largest self-congratulatory event in the history of humankind.
The same congressfolk who are now handing out thousands of tickets to this ecological disaster only last year mandated the phased elimination of the incandescent light bulb — a mere carbon tiptoe, if you will. The whole thing seems a bit unfair.
And instead of those incandescent bulbs, we are now mandated to use a more ecologically dangerous compact fluorescent bulb. I’m sure Congress has an answer for that too, but I digress…
He goes on:
I’ve been informed, quite forcefully, that “climate change” can induce weather to warm, make it colder and, miraculously, produce whatever climate condition we happen to be experiencing at that very moment. So I wholeheartedly concur with my environmentalist friends: Climate does indeed make weather fluctuate.
And we need our environmentalist “friends” to tell us that the weather changes. I do wonder how the schools will ever survive with the “experts” feeling the need to tell us that it won’t always be sunshine & 72-degrees outside.
Is 0.74 degrees Celsius warming over the past 100 years really enough to make us panic? I mean, we could probably make that up canceling the inauguration.
Best suggestion that I’ve heard, especially since according to CNN that the inauguration is going to cost the taxpayers over $150,000,000!! Is this insane? But then, how much did both political parties spend trying to get their respective candidates elected?
To which I would like to ask our Liberal friends who have the ecological and humanitarian needs of the world close to their hearts –
Do you know how many people could be fed and housed worldwide with the money that has and is being spent on political activities as well as reducing the estimated carbon footprint with such activities?
Oh yeah, that’s for the rest of us to pay for…
