Dopey News Journal Letter of the Week

Add Jeanette Robinson to the dopes who think climate change means the end of the planet:

This reckless [Keystone XL] project is designed to carry tar sands, the dirtiest, most carbon-intensive fossil fuel on earth from Canada across the U.S. to the West Coast to likely be exported to China. Of course the air circulates around the planet so this carbon will affect the entire world.

The President’s bold advances in clean energy and vehicle fuel efficiency are critical steps in holding off climate change. But this progress will be canceled out by developing tar sands.

NASA’s leading climate scientist, Dr. James Hansen, said that tar sands development means “game over for the climate.”

*Sigh* Once again, these same scientists like Hansen have stated that there's very little we can do to decrease the amount of CO2 already in the atmosphere for one. Thousand. Years. Which means there's little we can do to prevent climate change. Which means Boss Obama has been wasting our tax dollars -- tax dollars which are more precious now, than ever.

For the umpteenth time, I do believe there is climate change; however, since our global warming alarmist scientists have themselves stated that climate change is inevitable due to the concentration of carbon dioxide already present -- again, for a millennium -- why the f*** should I drastically alter my lifestyle to "negate" such an effect? It's utterly pointless. Much more likely is that, in the intervening 1,000 years, we'll develop a means to decrease the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere, not to mention a revolutionary new power source (like fusion). Since climate change has been a planetary phenomenon since, y'know, the birth of the Earth, just give me a royal break already. And read this counter to Hansen.

UPDATE: Steve Newton is trying to horn in on my action (just kidding). Be sure to read his eloquent take-down of a couple of anti- gun nuts.

So what is the ideal temperature of the planet, environmentalists? Like you said Hube, the climate has always changed ... so unless they're looking for "Climate Stop" at 73 degrees Fahrenheit, I'm not sure what the point is.

Indeed, advances in technology in the years to come will change how we utilize the earth's resources. These guys are just using end-of-the-world doom and gloom as a pretext for their power grabs.
