Finally, here's a reminder of one gigantic source of atmospheric heat which the Canadian Parliament will never tax or intimidate. Sol abides, and our star will control earth's weather systems long after the last Canadian politician and even little Davie Suzuki have been reduced to dust. And that, boys and girls, is a good thing.UPDATE June 5, 2007: Notice how Friday's news on record breaking May 2007 auto sales got a biiiig Yaaaawn from the Canadian media? Why are the legion of forecasters and trend spotters falling all over the map on the key economic indicators and evidence of social change? Is it just stupidity? And why do they ignore important information when news doesn't go the way they want to spin it? Always curious, I just Googled the news archives and I want to quote a "blast from the past" - this one is from a story archived on Bloomberg.com:
"March 14  (Bloomberg) -Canada's dollar may drop following a government report that showed sales of new automobiles declined for a third straight month in January, adding to signs that the economy is not growing fast enough to prompt an increase in interest rates."
The dollar may drop?? Car sales are tanking?? And businesses pay money to subscribe to Bloomberg's priority info services?
Now on the priority subject of the great Global Warming - carbon tax grabbing scam: - A short but worthwhile read, "I WAS ON THE GLOBAL WARMING GRAVY TRAIN" can be found on the website of the Mises Insitutute. The URL for the piece is http://www.mises.org/story/2571 and it is worth a few minutes of your time.
But if you don't agree with the basic premise - "Unfortunately politics and science have become even more entangled. Climate change has become a partisan political issue, so positions become more entrenched. Politicians and the public prefer simple and less-nuanced messages. At the moment the political climate strongly blames carbon emissions, to the point of silencing critics." ... the article is NOT for you. Ride along with Al Gore.
