So I get up this morning, expecting to find — based on the dire weather forecast yesterday afternoon — my front steps to be covered with one to three inches of snow over a layer of ice.
Nothing. They’re not even wet.
Not that I’m disappointed, but it points up again the folly of basing government policy on predictions of climate change. Professionals can’t tell me what’s going to happen in my town 18 hours from now with any accuracy. Why should I believe the world’s coastlines will be underwater in fifty years if I don’t give up incandescent light bulbs?
Well, we know the answer to that, don’t we? It’s not about the weather; it’s about control. Look at President-elect Obama’s choice for global warming czar:
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.
Conservatives, before you point to this as another example of the danger posed by our incoming president to individual liberty, remember that John McCain is a global warming true believer, too.
