Re: Why Climate Change Won't Matter in 20 Years

In the spirit of the season, here's a report from the American Christmas Tree Association. Plastic is king!

Carbon Footprint Study Finds Artificial Christmas Trees Best for the Environment

Of course, it's still better to go kill your own tree if you can.

Yes, socialist is left wing and the socialists fought the fascists in the Spanish Civil War. Among the first sent to Nazi concentration camps were socialists and communists.

Nice try - but you would fail Social Studies 30 in the Province of Alberta.

Political and Economic Spectrums

I will bet you think that the German Democratic Republic is both democratic and a republic.

The WRW in the USA uses revisionist history to re-write the political spectrum.

Have a Merry Christmas. Ours is white this year.

I just heard a "Green Tips" commercial on the radio encouraging everyone to buy real Christmas trees because they're now considered a renewable resource and therefore.... more green that artificial trees made from "BIG OiL."

Sounds to me like the greenies need to make up their minds and get their message straight.

Jack,

Where are you having a white Christmas? Ours in the New England is warm and brown. I hear the cherry blossoms are opening up in Washington DC.

My sentiments exactly. Most of us are sympatico with the goals, just not always with the means of getting there.

It all comes down to whether you use a capital "F" or small "f" when using the term "fascist." Nobody would refer to the Soviet regime as Fascist, but those suffering under its totalitarian system for 77 years would probably agree it was fascist.

Alberta - It is snowing right now.

The increased amplitude in the jet stream that gave the eastern North America a cold winter last year, gave us record warmth. This year the reverse is occurring.

The extreme left and right are both totalitarian. The ultimate goal of Marxism is the "withering away of the state." Fascists glorified the state.

Jack,

Where are you having a white Christmas? Ours in the New England is warm and brown. I hear the cherry blossoms are opening up in Washington DC.
Our local city council recently passed an ordinance mandating the use of paper grocery bags, and encouraging shoppers to bring their own, reusable bags by charging a $0.10 "tax" on every paper bag the store has to provide. But it wasn't that long ago that this same city council was encouraging the use of plastic bags because of the tree conservation thing. Of course that $0.10 "tax" on every paper bag is supposed to go into a segregated fund for recycling efforts.

Meanwhile, and as intended, the tax encouraged people to start using their own reusable grocery bags, but there have been a number of outbreaks of unexpected and serious illness, reportedly from bacteria building up in the reusable bags. Now more people are back to just sucking up the additional tax on their groceries and using the store-provided paper bags. So much for saving trees, but the city has accomplished raising the cost of groceries, a commodity which everyone needs so obviously hits poorer people harder.

Speaking of recycling, there's a big program for that in both the city and the county landfills, but due to the distant location of the actual recycling facilities, it requires more fossil fuel consumption & emissions to get the stuff there -- i.e. negative impact on the environment -- than would have been the case if the recyclables were left in the landfill. Oooops. That pesky law of unintended consequences again.

Doesn't stop everyone from rigorously separating out their recyclables, and busily putting everything in the correct bin. Feels good that they're "making a difference" I'm sure. I do the same, but think I at least have a better understanding of what difference it's really making.

The history of the past 100 years has pretty clearly shown that there's a big difference b'twn theory & practice. You can call what the people of the Soviet Union & E. Europe were living under totalitarianism, fascism, or slavery, but whatever the semantics it led to police states.

Kinda off-topic here, but have you or anyone heard the longer range projections (for whatever they're worth) for Jan. & Feb.? Are there jet stream or other factors which are supposed to reverse things yet again?
