We're Doomed

Via Grist. Too stupid and special to put in with other items. Go to this blog for the proof that it's for real. The writer of this article is a credentialed attorney in AR (Arkansas, not Alaska). Says all we need to know about the chances of dealing with this wisely if we insist on consensus and listening to all sides.

You may have noticed that March of this year was particularly hot. As a matter of fact, I understand that it was the hottest March since the beginning of the last century. All of the trees were fully leafed out and legions of bugs and snakes were crawling around during a time in Arkansas when, on a normal year, we might see a snowflake or two.

This should come as no surprise to any reasonable person. As you know, Daylight Saving Time started almost a month early this year. You would think that members of Congress would have considered the warming effect that an extra hour of daylight would have on our climate. Or did they?

Perhaps this is another plot by a liberal Congress to make us believe that global warming is a real threat. Perhaps next time there should be serious studies performed before Congress passes laws with such far-reaching effects.
