Congress About To Dive Into The Shallow End Of The Pool?
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Barack Obama have made economically strangling “green” legislation and regulation a priority. From a purely pragmatic, political viewpoint, that may not be prudent.
According to the latest Pew poll, global warming is dead last among the priorities of people surveyed.
Leaders, in both parties, advocating “green” are jumping onto a train that is slowly backing out of the station, onto a sidetrack. European nations’ voters, finally having become aware of the devastating economic and life-style costs inherent in the “green” agenda, are forcing politicians to return to reality. The message is drop, or drastically reduce, the man-made global warming fairy tale.
