It's been well said by others how eCotistical Civil Servant and AGW Alarmist, James Hansn regrets that we have a system of democracy which prevents him from chaining us all up in a gulag, to wit:
From Salt Lake Republic: "Hansen said "The democratic process doesn't quite seem to be working"."
Hansen knows that once Obama's Green Bill to Destroy All American Jobs is brought before Congress that it will be trimmed back to something like restricting children under the age of 16 from driving cars.
That Dawg not got no teeth...
He also knows that few congressmen, especially those facing re-election in a mid-term election in a year and a half, are going to put their name to a bill that will threaten jobs.
But, that's not a big deal. The Realists have won. The Alarmists have been defeated. Why?
Well, Gore did buy his bayside condo, and is spewing carbon dioxide like no body else in the world. And, no government in the world is actually DOING anything about Global Warming. If they don't take it seriously, why should anyone else? And as far as politicians:
They may be paying lip service, but they know a scam when they see one.
They are also at least as crafty as the Ecotistical Awarmists in knowing that there will be no consequence of their action in their term of office. They cannot be accused of the earth frying (as if it is going to), nor can they be held accountable when the climate has not catastophically changed in 100 years.
So we Win!!!!
And the world is far better for it.
