First, Chad @ Cake Or Death? informed us that Canadian officials had begun to blame the United States for a record year of gun deaths in Toronto. (Perhaps a fence to the north is needed too? Fine with me!)
Well, according to a new Stanford environmentalist, perhaps the Canuck forests are fighting back and raining doom down on all of us…
Forests may be bad for planet, controversial US study says – Edmonton Journal
Canada’s forests may actually worsen global warming rather than cool the planet, says a controversial study by a Stanford University physicist and environmental scientist.
This doesn’t mean we should bulldoze forests to fight global warming, says Ken Caldeira. Forests are still valuable ecological features in many ways.
But he says it’s “premature at least,” and maybe even dead wrong, to plant new forests and maintain existing ones in the belief that this will cool the Earth. If we want to stop global warming, he says, we’d better begin by burning less fossil fuel.
So let me get this right. Now the tree huggers have stabbed their pulpuous allies in the backs by destroying the forests in order to cool the earth!! That is so rich.
You know, I’m starting to lose track. The envirowackos tell us that severe heat is a symptom of global warming! Then bitter cold! Then drought, but then floods… .every weather condition the earth has experienced for billions of years is now evidence of global warming. Well, you can’t have it all ways. It is either warming or cooling. Pick one!
And now trees are causing global warming! Among other things yesterday, hearing this story on Rush Limbaugh nearly caused me to wreck my car. As one caller said, “what is left for the liberals to hug?”
