Global Warming Watch
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Highway and utility crews worked overtime Sunday to recover from the huge storm that buried Ohio and other parts of the Midwest in snow and tore down power lines elsewhere.Meanwhile, Canada's Maritime Provinces got 17.5 inches of the white stuff that is supposed to becoming more rare.
More than 20 inches of snow fell from Friday through Saturday at Columbus, eclipsing the city's previous record of 15.3 inches set in February 1910, the National Weather Service said.
Elsewhere 14 inches fell at Milan, Ind. Up to a foot fell in parts of Kentucky, Tennessee and Arkansas on Friday.
One cold winter does not a trend make -- but it's interesting that none of the mountain of cold weather articles we've seen during this record-breaking winter mentions all the warming hysteria that preceded it.
Never to have its dimwittedness challenged, the California legislature pounced into action:
During a joint two-house hearing of the Senate Committee on Alternative Energy and the Assembly Committee on Natural Resources, state legislators urged key regulators from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) - the state agency charged with implementing AB 32, California's 2006 law to combat global warming - to develop regulations ahead of the already aggressive 2012 schedule .... Citing a litany of likely global warming threats, from heat waves to snow pack loss to sea level rise, lawmakers told CARB Chair Mary Nichols that they want carbon-reduction strategies in place as soon as possible. Leading environmental groups urged the Legislature to begin taxing businesses ahead of schedule as a way to pay for ongoing AB 32 implementation costs.Just businesses? Not individuals? Why? Surely not because businesses "cause" global warming! It's the products individuals want that do any causing that's occurring.
If you need any more convincing that global warming activism is socialist-driven, just read the item again with your brain turned on.
