Global Nonsense


Everyday, there are more" idjits" making the news. For instance, US Secretary of Energy, Steven Chu, said Tuesday the Obama administration wanted to paint roofs an energy-reflecting white to increase the average global albedo. WHAT? Albedo? Is that like Libido? See Here:
For other uses, see Albedo (disambiguation).

The albedo of an object is the extent to which it diffusely reflects light from the Sun. It is therefore a more specific form of the term reflectivity. Albedo is defined as the ratio of diffusely reflected to incident electromagnetic radiation. It is a unitless measure indicative of a surface's or body's diffuse reflectivity.
---Wikipedia


So, let's all paint our roofs white. And then, there's this:
SILENCE OF THE LAMBS PALMERSTON NORTH, New Zealand -- On a typical day, researchers in this college town coax hungry sheep into metal carts. They wheel the fluffy beasts into sealed chambers and feed them grass, then wait for them to burp. The exercise is part of a global effort to keep sheep, deer, cows and other livestock from belching methane when they eat and regurgitate grass. Methane is among the most potent greenhouse gases, and researchers now believe livestock industries are a major contributor to climate change, responsible for more greenhouse-gas emissions than cars are, according to the United Nations. But I thought "global warming" is all man's fault! Do we have to stop belching, too?

And last, but not least:

Chief Idjit, Henry Waxman - here's his fantastic idea:
Late Thursday, the House Energy and Commerce Committee
passed the 900+ page Cap and Trade Carbon Tax bill by a vote of 33-25. "SERIOUS ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES" "Making the decision to regulate CO2 ... for the first time is likely to have serious economic consequences for regulated entities throughout the U.S. economy, including small businesses and small communities." "NO DEMONSTRATED HEALTH EFFECTS" In the absence of a strong statement of the standards being applied in this decision, there is a concern that EPA is making a finding based on (1) "harm" from substances that have no demonstrated direct health effects."

When asked a direction question regarding HIS bill, Waxman was unable to answer. He said that they were leaving the ins-and-outs of this bill up to the scientists. Once again, our politicians are trying to pass bills they HAVEN'T EVEN READ, even though their name is on it!!! And, of course, it's full of P.S. (Like B.S. only Pig S. because it's full of PORK!!!) When are they going to get it through their thick skulls???? They may have the bucks to pay 3-4 time higher energy bills. I sure has hell don't!!!!!!! And while they're busy playing around with pig farts and sheep burps, the "Dear Leader" of North Korea has broken a 53-year old treaty. The world could be blown to smithereens because we've let the U.N. sit on their fat butts and tell "Dear Leader" to play nice. Reminds me of Nero playing his "fiddle" while Rome burns....

Hang on people: We're in for a LONG ride!
