SNOWBOUND CONFEREES COOL TO WARMING DEAL
As a blanket of snow fell upon the global warming conference in Copenhagen,
attendees are deadlocked after two weeks of wrangling. Under
the guise of lowering the emission of greenhouse gases, the crux appears to be
to redistribute the wealth of rich nations to the third world. They
just can't decide how to do it, so until every poor country in the world
secures their slice of the pie, the talks are stalled. The
po' folks considered cooking their own pie, but the thought of building a fire
to do so is contrary to the goals of the conference.
Demonstrators from all over the world are raising hell in the streets under a
cloud of tear gas, the emission of which is surely detrimental to the
Meanwhile the haggling continues in an air of extreme urgency over a hypothesis
that remains questioned, tainted, and unproven.
Blizzard warnings are in effect for Utah,
and Arizona. Wind-driven snow drifts are accumulating in
depths as high as 15 feet. The Midwest is getting
a heavy pre-winter snowfall, and the Northeast is bracing for heavy
and parts of the gulf coast experienced rare snowfall less than a week ago.
Perhaps it is just coincidence, what with the Climate Change Conference going
on in Denmark, but
online, the New York Times, The Washington Post, and USA Today have failed to
mention the early storm which will grip two-thirds of the nation by week's end.
Am I paranoid, or is the media taking a day off from national news?
Follow-up 12/10/09: USA
Today reports that 16 people have died in this weather event. Times
& Post still have their heads in the snow.

CARBON FOOTPRINTS IN THE SNOW
The U. N. Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen
will produce a carbon footprint of biblical proportions. 1,200 limousines
and 140 private aircraft will be fouling the air around the Danish capitol
while shuttling attendees to and fro. Because the local airports can't handle the
flying polluters en masse, many of the planes must park as far away as Sweden
and shuttle back to Copenhagen
spewing a trail of poison as they go. Of the 200 limo's of Copenhagen's
largest fleet, five are hybrids.
While studying the rigged climate data and a Cap-and-Trade (Tax ) plan that
overlooks diesel-driven shipping (Denmark's mainstay industry) as a polluter,
the doom-fearing nitwits are expelling a volume of CO2 that equals that of 60
small countries combined according to a New York Post report. Such
unfathomable hypocrisy exhibited by this band of nerds is embarrassing even to
the distant on-looker.
If the sky is indeed falling, may it fall on Copenhagen
