Global Warming? Really?posted by The Vidiot @ 8:00 AM Permalink Now, I understand weather patterns. I really do, remember, I could be considered a weather girl. However, I have to say, it's June, I live in NYC, and I'm freezing my butt off in the freezing cold and near constant rain.
I'm not complaining mind you. The more cool days we have, the fewer hot days I'll have to live through. Postpone the heat for as long as possible. I know it's selfish of me. I know that I'll not see any good corn this summer, but dammit, we don't have AC and no AC + NYC summer = one of the rings of Hell, and definitely one of the inner rings at that.
But I'm reading about the late start of summer just about everywhere. June snow in one of the Dakotas. Hail in New Jersey. I mean, it's weird. Yet, the media is still screaming global warming and ideas for more taxes are being bandied about the halls of power.
I'm not saying there's no global warming. There may well be. Do I think humans cause it? I don't know. Seems the earth warmed and cooled all by itself without any intervention from us for millenniums. I'm more comfortable saying that the human race are pigs and are making a crap storm out of the planet just with their filth. Should that be taxed? Well, I doubt it's my light bulb that's doing it so I'm loath to give more of my money to the government because of my light bulb. Now, the fellas that MAKE the light bulb however, well that's a different story. Tax them and don't let them dribble down that tax to us. If they don't want to pay the tax, they have to come up with a better way to make the damn light bulb. Why should we suffer?
I just feel like this whole global warming thing is yet another way to socially control the population. Gives them another thing they can dictate to us; telling us what we can do and how to do it.
Any more social control and my head will explode. I feel stifled as it is.
