Protesters freeze their nads off and still complain

March 2, 2009

The global warmists are freezing their asses off in the middle of late winter snowstorm. Average high temperature in DC on March 2: 51 degrees. Actual temp: 30 degrees; with a bunch of snow to boot. Love it. (and I wonder how many went home to their (coal) heated homes)

    You gotta love the college kids. A lot of ’em’ll believe anything, if the speaker sounds sincere when he’s saying it. ‘Course, that old bozo in the hoodie was just as stupid. Getting rid of coal as an excuse to expand government power? “Big government” prez Obama supports the use of coal. Geez, what a bunch of maroons.

    I’d like to see BOs support of coal. Got links?

  3. superdave524 Says:

    I recall Obama referencing “clean coal” in the debates. Here’s a very, very brief link to that.

  4. superdave524 Says:

    (well, not “very, very” brief).

    “Cap and trade” is a huge expansion of government power (and revenue).

    “Cap and Trade” was discussed a lot back in the day. The environmental purists thought a “licence to pollute” was tawdry and would spawn cottage industries whose only real business was to sell their right to pollute to big companies. The proponents thought it would encourage companies to use the market to find ways to pollute less on their own. Regulating pollution- or anything- naturally requires government action, and your Dane and other commentators make an argument that the cost of curbing some types of pollution aren’t worth it, but if we decide that it is important to reduce pollution (or global warming or whatever) then cap and trade is less intrusive than some approaches, anyway.

    It’s less apparent but just as intrusive. It’s a tax on energy.
