On an unrelated topic, but nevertheless of great interest to Adrian and his Sustainable Otsego friends, is news from the UK’s weather-watching Met Office, citing evidence that global warming has decelerated or even stopped over the last 15 years.
I am relieved, and I’m sure, Adrian, that you will agree that we can now ease off on the costly tier IV emissions for trucks and tractors, leave the auto companies alone, go with the Keystone Pipeline, and quit killing the coal industry. Unless of course, what the skeptics of the environmental movement have said is true; that it was never about the environment at all. It’s always been about control, anti-capitalism, anti-business and wealth redistribution.
What a bunch of boobs, right? Come on Adrian, help us celebrate the end of global warming! We’re waiting to hear from you.
