So, to paraphrase Sarah Palin, "How is that global warming, renewable fuels/highly taxed dirty fuels thing working out for you?" Over in increasingly not so merry England, Fraser Nelson, writing in that country's Telegraph gives us a shuddering preview of what's happening there...and what is in store for us.

"It's the cold, not global warming, that we should be worried about.

No one seems upset that in modern Britain, old people are freezing to death as hidden taxes make fuel more expensive"

On the bright side, so to speak, in England there will be an estimated 30,000 extra deaths " 'excess winter mortality'--that is, the number of people dying of cold-related illnesses" in British officialese who probably would have continued to live had they had enough fuel to keep warm.

I dunno SeekandFind, it seems to me there is death here in the US too from the cold and fuel prices.

A friend in New Bedford is already out of heating oil...

I have my thermostats set at 60 and 65 respectively, and the bill is still more than I can afford. I don’t know what I will do come next winter season.
