Yesterday was Theme Day at QCOnline, either that or they got the Obama memo about promoting “climate change”.
It seems “climate change” and “extreme” weather was going on way back in the 19th century, because on July 20, 1864, this was the news of the day:
“The mercury on Friday indicated 95 degrees above 0, and on Sunday morning 56 degrees above 0 a change of 40 degrees.”
Notice the lack of panic and calls for congress to “do something” like tax and regulate cow and horse farts.
But moving on to the 21st century, it is a whole ‘nother thing.
According to QCOnline, on Saturday state energy chair Sen. Mike “Fists O’ Fury” Jacobs congregated at the QC Bandits ballpark along with the Bandits owner, the spox from Exelon, Rep. Pat “The Weasel” Verschoore and a few “concerned” citizens—but not obvious climate denier Mike Smiddy—to demand “Let’s just get Congress talking about the issue.” Because, according to Jacobs “a study is needed to determine ‘what’s causing the weirdness in our weather.'” “Weirdness” being a scientific term he picked up from his daddy who lobbys for Exelon.
How lame. Really. Back in ’08 when Democrats controlled both the White House and all of Congress, Nancy Pelosi and her Democrat locksteppers pushed through the famous “Cap and Tax” bill that would have saved us from climate destruction. Unfortunately for them (including the doomed Hare), the Senate, also with a filibuster proof majority, declined to take up the bill, deciding it was more important to get re-elected than to save the planet.
Because as they soon realized, as long as India and China were spewing bad stuff in the air, their doomed bill would not change a damned thing as far as global warming was concerned. Although it would give them an opportunity for more smug self-righteous prancing and preening. Which evidently wasn’t enough.
At least Dan Lee seems to have some grasp on reality which evades Jacobs, his lobbyist daddy, his daddy’s Exelon client, Pat Verschoore and the Bandits guy:
“The bottom line in all this is that the political processes are not going to solve global warming. That’s why it must begin with us in the lifestyle decisions that we make.”
Which brings me to the “lifestyle decisions” that global warming alarmists like Obama and Al Gore make—which is they behave like there is NO problem.
Until people like Gore and Obama decide to behave in a way that indicates they take “climate change” seriously, I see absolute no reason for the rest of us to sacrifice—anything.
