Green Gremlins

COOL FACTOR: "But, but global warming is still happening! Cold means warm! No means yes! Onward green soldiers!"

REPORT HERE. Well now, what is not acknowledged enough is the growing dissent among reputable climatologists who question either the severity or effects of man-made global warming. In other words, the man-made part could be but a tiny, marginal sliver of overall warming caused by that big bad solar warmer in the sky called the Sun. So as transportation and industries worldwide commence with saving the planet with anti-warming measures, some levity is badly needed. 

The rationale for our green goals should center on reducing our dependence on foreign oil and cleaning up the air we breathe. Such noble purposes are worthwhile and logical, and therefore will lead to more rational spending and sensible economic and energy policies. Going green needs to be pursued in an atmosphere, or climate, sans carbon taxes and convoluted hysteria.

Ever notice how Al Gore has more than once given stern global warming speeches on days of record cold temperatures? -- M.R.
