Cold hands, cold heart

January 14, 2009


This worries me a lot:

Until last week, Carol M. Browner, President-elect Barack Obama’s pick as global warming czar, was listed as one of 14 leaders of a socialist group’s Commission for a Sustainable World Society, which calls for “global governance” and says rich countries must shrink their economies to address climate change.

The average high in these parts for January is 30 degrees. Forecasted high temperature for tomorrow… -3 degrees. Yeah, let’s shrink our economy to address climate change so I can be both poor AND cold.

    Yes, because the last eight years have grown our economy so very, very much…

  4. John in IL Says:

    Not sure what your definition of “very, very much” is but GDP grew by about 20% in the last eight years (after adjusting for inflation).

  5. John in IL Says:

    And over those past eight years, temperatures have been falling even while our GDP grew (looking at -29 degrees tonight).
