The Global Warming Movement in a Nutshell

Assigned Reading: Activists Hang Global Warming Banner From Mount Rushmore (FROM: Fox News)

For those who haven’t heard by now, yesterday morning, rock-climbing environmentalists scaled Mount Rushmore in South Dakota and unfurled a gigantic banner encouraging American politicians to address the perceived problem of climate change.

Forget, for a moment, that these granola-munching hippies thought it appropriate to hang a photo of Barack Obama’s face alongside those of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. Forget that the 11 activists were trespassing, and forget even the overarching farce that is global warming. Focus instead on one sentence in particular from the news article:

Park workers are trying to remove the banner, [National Park Service spokeswoman Patty] Rooney said, but strong winds have complicated the process.

“It is not down yet,” she said shortly before noon.

She said park workers will assess damage to the 5,725-foot mountain once the banner is down.

These imbeciles actually damaged the mountain in an attempt to save the environment.

That’s the equivalent of powering whaler intercepting ships with whale blubber. Or forcing compact fluorescent light bulbs on the American people despite the dangerous levels of mercury released if the bulbs are broken. Or facilitating the expansion of expensive and counterproductive biofuel programs to the extent that rainforest in Brazil is actually getting leveled to make room for sugarcane crops destined for fuel.

Then again, when has the left ever been concerned with unintended adverse consequences?

    Letting my imagination run wild:

    Fox news reporter: Was there any damage done to the mountain?

    NPS spokeswoman: We don't know, we'll have a look at that once the banner is gone.

    Execute them. 11 less human polluters.

    That's like stealing from the American people to pay for programs we can't afford — so we cut programs that people depend upon to scrape up not nearly enough — so we spend more!

    In other words, stupid, as in Obamanomics. Stupid, as in global warming–no, that's criminal. Shucks! They're both stupid AND criminal!

    Osama supporters defacing historical monuments in Afghanistan. Obama supporters defacing historical monuments in the USA.

    Obama, Osama… The difference is just a little B.S.

    Throw the enviro-fascists off George's nose. That will reduce their carbon footprint to the size of a grease spot on the pavement.

    Excellent Rix, my battalion of patriots is going to be so fun.

    The calories it took to scale that mountain had to come from somewhere, and will have to be replaced. It takes a lot of BTU's to farm, you human mountain goats.

    Dear ALL CAPS MAN:

    Thank you for contacting our office to express your opposition to H.R. 2454, the "American Clean Energy and Security Act" also called the "cap and trade" bill. I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me on this important issue.

    I voted against the "cap and trade" legislation, which ultimately passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 219 to 212. While I believe that we must break our dependence on foreign sources of energy and that mankind has a responsibility to be a good steward of the environment, the "cap and trade" bill, in its current form, is not the right approach and comes at the wrong time.

    H.R. 2454 is too complicated and could drive up energy costs for American households, businesses and farmers. I was supportive of a small improvement to the bill that made the legislation better for the agricultural community; however, overall the final legislation was fatally flawed, in my opinion. At a time when this country is still reeling from a severe economic downturn, I felt that passing H.R. 2454 was not the right way to move forward.

    A responsible energy policy for America must center around three principles: responsible use of traditional resources, efforts to increase energy efficiency, and a real effort to diversify our energy portfolio. To this end, I have supported and will continue to support efforts to increase access to drilling for oil and gas off our coast and in Alaska, better energy efficiency standards, and investments in nuclear and alternative energy technology.

    Again, thank you for your comments. Please do not hesitate to contact our office if I can be of any further assistance.

    Sincerely,
    John Tanner, M.C.

    Will be much harder to be charitable, for disasters like this one, with our diminishing dollars after cap and trade sucks us dry.

    BEIJING – More than 400,000 people have left their homes after an earthquake rocked southwestern China, killing one person and destroying thousands of houses, state media said Friday.
    Thursday's magnitude-6.0 temblor, centered in Yunnan province's Yao'an county, also injured 325 others, 24 seriously, the Xinhua News Agency said.

    Gag me, they are going to change the color of the GM logo from blue to GREEN. Who would have seen that coming? This is so absurd.

Speak Your Mind
