Heat Running Out of Global Warming?

There is both growing public reluctance to make personal sacrifices and a distinct lack of enthusiasm for the major international efforts now underway to battle climate change, according to findings of a poll of 12,000 citizens in 11 countries, including Canada.

You don't say.

I will make another prediction as well. Because of the cost of food and lower incomes, you will see a demise in boutique groceries and organic farming. Like it or not, conventional farming methods made abundant food available to the masses at a reasonable price. Who wants to buy one perfect tomato for four bucks a pop? It simply isn't feasible.

I'll see your prediction and raise you a disagreement: boutique edibles like heritage vegetables and livestock species will take a hit during the economic downturn but they'll come back with the economy. The world's supply of rich people isn't diminishing and once the current economic worries dissipate they'll want to display their wealth, as well as indulge their fond beliefs, by buying $20/pound turkey and $4/pound tomatoes.

As far as the subject of this post, the left has always used the worst aspects of human nature to achieve their political aims. In this case they're faced with the inevitable result of crying "wolf" a few million times too many.

And since it's an ill wind that blows no good, it looks like the state of the economy has put T. Boone Pickes massive fleecing of the taxpayer, in the form of his giant, Texas windfarm, on hold for the foreseeable future.
