Missing Ice Cube
I wouldn’t call myself a denier in the Warming scam. I tend to think of it as more a cash cow for scientist and fellow travelers. Seems we can afford anything in these times and the folks involved have set out to prove it.
OK, now that I have alienated the political correctness crowd, today’s post isn’t really about my shaky opinion. It is about unintended consequences. Usually I drag out that hackneyed phrase to talk about the government. Well, they have to be good at something and sadly that’s got the lead.
I just read this article over at ARS. I really liked the read. Humor is found in the oddest spots.
I’m even stealing their picture lead-in. It seems that global warming is a godsend. Really. We’d embarked on the 100,000 year cycle to have a nice ice age. The article talks about the model that defines (as the scientist sees it) what it takes to have to turn north America into an ice-cube. Thanks to green house gases, it ain’t gonna happen.
Let’s hear a round of applause for those coal-fired plants. I’m going on a limb applauding here. It may because my house is the southern terminus for the last glaciation and the above picture as my northern view strikes fear. Also a fan of good Wisconsin cheese and frozen cows don’t produce much milk.
