Commentary of the Day

Kent Lyon, on Abe Greenwald:

Perhaps the EPA will declare sunlight a hazard, as it not only causes global warming, but also cancer. Will there be a federal shade mandate? Perhaps reflective umbrellas could be unfurled all over the planet. Also, H2O is the largest contributor to global warming, so will that be restricted also? Perhaps that’s what Obama meant when he indicated his election would mark the point when the seas began to recede, a la Moses. And, by the way, how much are we to be required to cool the planet? Ice Age levels? Pleistocene temperatures? Or lower? Will a global thermostat be ordered by Congress? What atmospheric level of CO2 will be required? And will that level reduce crop yields and lead to starvation? Or the death of trees and other plants, with a result that O2 levels will fall to asphyxiation levels?
