Anyone Wanna Warm The Earth?

Posted on February 4, 2009 by LCT Magazine

SUSTAINABILITY BALANCE: Please click on this map, and see if you can find the global warming. Maybe all those carbon offsets have worked already? Most of the nation will freeze tonight. Bet those folks in Kentucky who've been without power for most of the week would love to overnight in a greenhouse. Even us LCTers in humble Southern California will be dipping down to 54 degrees -- the warmest spot on the U.S. 48 tonight.

This colder than usual winter makes one want to warm up the SUV for 10 mintues, drive out to a log cabin in the snowy countryside, turn on some kerosene lamps, ignite the fireplace, and smoke a cigar with the brandy. I wonder if all the carbon could be credited toward the stimulus package. The more carbon we emit, the more green jobs we need to offset it. -- M.R.
