Hard times: Common sense's ally

Well, well, well. So global-warming types are finally realizing pursuing their phantom comes with a hefty cost.

"To environmentalists, there is no more urgent question than addressing global climate change. The new Democrat-led Congress has vowed to pass major cap-and-trade legislation in response.

"Later this year. Maybe."

Astonishingly, the zealots -- and their largely Democratic champions in the Legislature -- have discovered that "(c)ap-and-trade would require businesses to buy permits to release carbon emission as a way of reducing CO2 emissions overall. For states that use a lot of coal-fired electricity, that could mean new expenses for business and new costs for consumers." (emphasis mine)

Nooooooooo. Really?! And we've all got so much extra cash to splash around in the BEST of times for these stupid schemes. //sarcasm off// If there's one bright spot in this recession, it's that even the idiots have to pay attention to common sense.

Meanwhile, a Norwegian blog-poster writes: "There is so much snow in Oslo, where I live, that the city authorities are resorting to dumping truckloads of it in the sea because the usual storage sites on land are full."

Commenter Steve puts it pretty well:

"No matter what the problem.. global warming.. err climate change is aways the cause. More snow.. climate change, Less snow.. climate change.. arctic sea ice expanding .. climate change.. artic sea ice retracting climate change.

"Freeze in Rio.. climate change.. freeze in north pole.. climate change. How much needed money are we going to continue to give to these scamsters?"
