Item One is cow farts and pig belches. No, I haven't regressed to being a 13 year old boy, I'm serious. The EPA is proposing a tax (they call it an "annual fee"--smells like a tax to me) on farm animal gaseous output. Based on the article, I'm not sure how the money will be used to fight global warming. Probably by paying for the bailouts of GM and Ford, grumble, grumble.
Item Two is that Gwinnett County, Georgia wants to impose a $500 fine for those who don't recycle. They assure the residents that it will be used only for the serious recycling scofflaws. Given how RICO and various computer crime and anti-terror statutes have been misused in recent years, why does this smell like
Item Three is that climate scientists say that 2008 will be the coolest year in a decade. Even though their own graph suggests that the current "warm spell" is ending, they say that this doesn't indicate anything. Except that if the religion of global warming becomes discredited science, a lot of climate scientists are going to find themselves unfunded.
Now excuse me while I go throw another piece of wood on the fire.
