My shared views of politics, religion, and life from the
typical to the extraordinary, the sacred to the profane, the real to the imagined, the right to the left, and the right to the wrong.

Climate Fools Day
The Carbon Sense Coalition today called on Americans to join the world in celebrating Climate Fools Day on October 27th. The Chairman of “Carbon Sense”, Mr Viv Forbes, said that Climate Fools Day was dubbed as such by protesters outside the British House of Commons on 27th October 2008 when the house was debating the Climate Bill. It was on that day that a large part of Europe, including London, was blanketed in the first October snowfall in over seventy years while members of British Parliament chattered on about the need to fight global warming.
I find this rather ironic as when I opened my garage door to leave to work today I found that a six inch blanket of snow covered my front yard... and drive way. I guess I should have gotten the snow blower out of the shed in the backyard a little sooner instead of waiting until this weekend as I had planned. (After all, I was sure that I wouldn't be in need of it so soon...) It is still October for crying out loud!
As of today, I am definitely in favor of global warming. In the summer time... not so much.
