Forecast: insanity
"It's official. America is now totally insane over the weather.
"Even the Weather Channel that used to simply provide reasonably accurate, short-term information about the weather is now telling everyone we're doomed because global warming is going to destroy the Earth. Why not just rename it the AlGore Channel?
"The weather used to be the concern primarily of farmers and ranchers. ... As America became more urbanized, the rest of the population wanted to know whether to bring an umbrella or what to wear. Now it is a source of daily anxiety over the fate of the Earth.
"To make matters worse, people are being told and actually believing that what they do or not can affect the weather in ways to keep the seas and temperatures from rising. ...
"That is a definition of insanity. It is so far removed from reality that Hollywood has to conjure up films showing New York under miles of snow or so-called documentaries demanding that industry must come to a stop in order to save the Earth."

"Tin Drummers" original comment was of interest.

I went to a "summit" last week to talk about problems on our small market town. The keynote academic who is an "expert" in "urban regeneration" managed to include all of the Green shibboleths in her presentation including climate change, peak oil, wind energy & alternative transportation.

Of course, the reality was that people wanted to talk about amenities, car parking and freeing retailers from the burden of punitive regulation...
