I did read something one time that global warming had it in for Maryland.

“We care about our climate and we want to do something about it.”

I think this will be my new tagline. It has a nice ring to it.

There may be a tiny bit of truth to this. We are already seeing the extinction of the Pachyderm Party. Last time “climate change” hit, we lost the woolly mammoth.

Good point, especially if there’s collateral damage to DC.

But what I can’t understand is, why “we” even allow “global warming” and “climate change” to be uttered without challenge. If, every time some loon says crap like this they were challenged, laughed-at, and ridiculed - we’d have won this debate.

Next time you hear a liberal say “climate change”, just imagine you were a liberal who’d just been told that Sarah Palin was the smartest woman on the planet — and react as they would.

It is obvious that being a “‘House Democrat” requires no real intelligence. I mean, who cares about the economy? Fraudulent “Global Warming” and banning gun are more important.

The only way to really fight moonbat leftists like this, is to distribute flyers in predominantly democrat areas, in cartoon format like Jehovah’s witness or mormon literature, with pictures of modern Detroit and Hiroshima, and explains to the reader that liberal policies have destroyed more cities than nuclear weapons.

My thoughts exactly. Could we also get rid of Massachusetts while we are at it?

If they want to do something about the climate, maybe they should try talking to God for a change.

That stock photo of Sheila Jackson Lee shows her has presumably a normal and intelligent person. It makes me want to ask her why she has chosen to use race as a political bargaining chip, and if that bothers her ethically. Then go on to suggest that she could help her constituency by honest means, instead of the using the race card.

It's very difficult to spend the time required being a successful self-promoting deceitful narcissist, like the absolute vast majority of our elected officials are, and to have enough time to actually become knowledgeable about something useful. Nuff said.

Global warming has been rebranded as "climate change" and it will destroy Maryland. It will also make Maryland prosper, as it will bring floods and drought. It will be responsible for famine and also bumper crops. It will cause eclipses of the sun and earthquakes.

Everything that happens in Maryland will be the fault of climate change and, good or bad, it will also be bad. Bad because its man's fault.

I’m sorry but for some reason, I have the feeling that this person must be related to that idiot from Atlanta that thought Guam might get too many military personnel assigned to it and flip over. When they were born, they left the hospital before getting into the line to pick-up a brain. Its unbelievable to me that someone so stupid could actually function in everyday life, let alone get elected to Congress. But wait...I take that back. Apparently it happens all the time.

To paraphrase and bastardize Mark Twain (who did not really say this), “Everybody talks about the weather but NOBODY CAN DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT.”

In 1999, the Vermont ski industry was worth about $0.8 billion. Let’s say it’s $1.2 billion today.

Even if global warming were true (which it’s not), does it make any economic sense to spend $10,000 billion or $20,000 billion to save a measly $1.2 billion industry? It would be far cheaper to give every person who wants to ski in Vermont a government voucher to go ski somewhere further north.

Besides, what’s wrong with a warming climate? A warmer climate would prevent thousands of people per year the horror of freezing to death. It might even make Vermont habitable.

I had been more or less ignoring the XL Pipeline issue, except the demonstrations scheduled on the issue in DC this weekend brought it to my attention again. I decided to do some research on the issue and was surprised to discover, that this is not just another pipeline like so many others we have. It is in fact far more likely to have breaks than pipelines carrying normal crude.

It pumps a substance, diluted bitumin (dilbit) which is about 70% tar sand bitumin and 30% volatile diluting substances. These are trade secret compounds that the companies will disclose which means in case of a spill, clean up crews and neighbors have no idea what kinds of poison might be in and air and water. The pressure, high sulfur content, acidity and quartz grain (sand) composition cause much more abrasion inside the pipes and greatly increase the rate of breaks.

Here are questions that need to be answered about this type of pipeline in an upcoming report. I particularly want to know the answers to the second and third issues.

http://www.350.org/sites/default/files/kxl-seis-factsheet-final.pdf

Apparently the cost of clean up for a dilbit leak in water is around $29,000 per barrel, whereas conventional crude costs about $2,000 per barrel to clean up. The Kalamazoo River at Marshall had a major leak from an Enbridge pipeline. Two years later they are still cleaning. The cost at least 1/2 $billion, right up there with Solyndra. The article below explains technical details of the problems. The clean up industry had no experience with this kind of spill. Since this is for export, rather than US use is this really worth it?

At least the MD governor is trying to get permits for off shore wind energy. Unlike those lace curtain wannabees up in Massachusetts who are distressed that they might actually have to see wind turbine blades several miles off shore. There are other states like VA, NJ, NC, SC and FL which might also like to be able to do off shore wind, and these are mostly Republican states.
