Do you wish the dinosaurs were still roaming the Earth?
The other day, a very nice, polite, no doubt well-intentioned youngster by the name of Jeremy was lamenting our loss of freedom as a result of the Patriot Act. Of course, when pressed, Jeremy couldn't name any specific freedom he'd lost, much less name someone who'd been victimized by the Patriot act. But I bet everyone has heard of someone who's been jailed, fined or prohibited from using his property as he'd like because of environmental restrictions – and I"m not talking about big polluters.
Recently, James Taranto coined a term: "the delusion of competence." If he didn't coin it, I, at least, hadn't seen it before, but I immediately thought about all those scientists who subscribe to the UN climate report – as well as some here…
"In the paramount threat of our time, the Democratic Party is AWOL. And those are the patriotic Democrats. The rest are actively aiding the enemy… Like the noose hysteria currently sweeping New York City, liberals are always fighting the last battle because the current battle is too frightening." – Ann Coulter
I read something tonight about what a fraud carbon offsets are, and I was surprised that it was so easy to see and yet I hadn't heard anyone talking about it until now. It has to do with planting trees, but it doesn't involve the sheer numbers necessary for so many people to cover their tracks. Any ideas? Btw, I have so much material that mocks and debunks this warming nonsense that I can't keep up. It's literally scrolling off my clipboard extender.
How many of a species is enough? I ask because the other day, a woman called Rush Limbaugh to tell him she was a conservative, but she was also an animal lover, and she was beside herself that there were only 5000 tigers left. Limbaugh mentioned in a sort of question.statement that they were in zoos, to which the woman responded, "No, I'm talking about in the WILD!" That prompted Limbaugh to utter one of the funniest lines I've heard recently – "Oh, OK, then it's covered." At this point, you may want to reconsider your answer to my opening question?!?
So warming started the fires… and the fires increase warming… so not only is the cycle complete, it's spiraling out of control, and perhaps the only thing that can stop it now is a major volcanic eruption?
And is it my imagination or is it that with oil around $95. a barrel, liberals don't seem nearly as sanguine about their "blood for oil" indictment of the administration?
