Dear Flaco,

This kid, in about 5 minutes,  has done something that Al Gore and his team of scientists haven’t been able to for years.

Love,

Dear Flaco,

Awesome.

So, when experts in 1988 claim that the temperate in 2008 is going to be .5 C higher, we should just never check up on them, right?  We should just say, WOW!  And then faint.  Wake up and elect Obama.  God forbid that people would actually capture the prediction, then, ya know, record the actual temperature, and then – SHOCKER – compare them to see if this expert knows what the fuck he is talking about?

Nah.  Let’s elect Obama instead.

Truth and facts never enter the liberal mind!

And now Molly.  Tragic story.  Really is.  And I feel bad for a 22 year old kid tryin’ to make it saddled with 9 large in debt.

Specific, here is some advice.

However, giving me a story of one girl doesn’t change cold hard facts:

  1. Health or medical care is limited
  2. We need/want more of it than can be supplied
  3. It must be rationed
  4. When that rationing method is price, it leads to lower prices and more availability

Serious.  Stop sending me this minor league business.  Give me facts.

Dear Flaco,

I bumped into this tonight.

Insight into Global Warming Cooling

Dear Flaco,

I trust that you are doing well.  That you are enjoying life on the left coast.  As we continue to struggle with housing prices, unemployment and the economy in general, there are some things that we are finding to be rather enjoyable.  Of the few, I would list the current price for a gallon of gas the most enjoyable and the most significant.  Having been just north of $4, I literally smile and chuckle as I fuel up for the cheap [serious, this gas is cheap].  And this is good news, not just for me on a personal level, but for all of us.  Cheaper fuel means cheaper goods, at least to a degree.

But now we are hearing that the Democratic controlled lawmakers are considering taxing gasoline; perhaps not insignificantly.  Add this cost to the already imbedded artficial cost of “Global Warming” and you have perhaps the single larget cause of global hunger.  It seems there’s no end to the lengths people are willing to go to “fix” something that really isn’t broken.

So, the Democrats are considering taxing gasoline until we we choke because they fear Global Warming; the end of the world as we know it.  And when asked why they think that we are facing “The End of the World as We Know it”, they shrug and point to The Oracle of Delphi, Al Gore.  When asked to present data, they can’t.  In fact, when asked to present a trend that shows we are warming, they can’t.

For example:

  • The world is cooling.  2008 is the coldest of the century.
  • Sea ice levels continue to grow.  The arctic is growing,or at least no longer shrinking.
  • More and more, the “experts” supporting Global Warming are thinning.
  • The data used to support Global Warming is more and more coming into question.

As I have mention time and time again, we should make sure that whatever we do in our lives and to our planet, we should do well; we should be good stewards.  On the other hand, there is no reason whatsoever to feel that we need to undertake expensive and dangerous policies to prevent a catastrophy that is a fairy tale.

How expensive is this story going to be?

Dear Flaco.

When I hear people talk about Global Warming, or Climate Change or AGW or whatever – it makes me wanna loose my belly. And here is why:

Because people feel that we have to “fix it” at any cost!

We can talk about this all day-or night-long and you will find that I, and many many like me, are willing to cede that the planet is warming. However, what we do not accept is this:

  1. That this warming is induced by man
  2. That this warming is not natural –is that the same as #1?
  3. That the warming is an indication of a runaway climate catastrophe
  4. That the current proposals of “containment” are in any way commensurate with the danger.

To say that a skeptic simply doesn’t care about the planet, the future or our grandkids is insane and insulting. However, I simply don’t accept that premise. If anything, I have more of a claim on the future of this planet than you do right now. We simply have looked at the science and see a different result than the alarmists.

Is the globe warming? Sure—sure, I think that it is. Is it warming out of bounds? That is, is it warming faster than if we were not here? I don’t think so; or if it is, not by much. Do I think that we should continue to watch and make sure that what we do here on planet earth is right and good and healthy? Hell yeah—HELL yeah! But what I DON’T think that we need to do is absolutely shut down the global economy as we know it.

We need electricity. And just about the only way to get electricity in this country is to burn some form of fossil fuel. Be it coal or whatever, we need it. Granted, we get some from hydro and even less from wind, but most of it is from fossil. Would it be cool if we could generate that power by some other source? I think so. Do I think that we need to change everything in the whole infrastructure to meet that goal? No, I don’t think so.

We have an incredible source of portable energy right now; oil into gas. I think that we should use it. It is incredibly powerful; it is currently accessible and relatively cheap. It’s good at what we need it to do. Why should we abandon it? The answer—“Because some folks feel that it’s going to be the end of the world”. I just don’t think it is.

So, there has been an appeal for another topic. You pick:

1. Universal HealthCare
2. Taxes
3. Abortion
4. Education
5. Other
