It is too easy. As much as I try to avoid the same subjects it is impossible. Last night in the Democratic debate the issue of man made global warming came up and of course the candidates were on board with the propaganda. John Edwards said it was a crisis, a strong and uninformed word to say the least. But it is the words of his wife that highlight the ridiculousness of this movement. From the wires;

"In a meeting with local environmentalists in the coastal town of McClellanville today, where Elizabeth Edwards raised in passing the importance of relying on locally-grown fruit.
"We've been moving back to 'buy local,'" Mrs. Edwards said, outlining a trade policy that "acknowledges the carbon footprint" of transporting fruit.
"I live in North Carolina. I'll probably never eat a tangerine again," she said, speaking of a time when the fruit is reaches the price that it "needs" to be.
Edwards had talked about "sacrifice," at the meeting, but Elizabeth's suggestion illustrated just how difficult it is to sell the specifics of sacrifice."

Because the tangerines would have to be transported from Florida to North Carolina, Mrs. Edwards will sacrifice eating tangerines? So the plan would have to be that people should only eat things that they can get local. That will help to avert this "crisis". That along with the mercury filled light bulbs that everyone should use, along with only using one piece of toilet paper per bowel movement, etc. etc. etc....

The frightening thing is that there are actually people who believe this stuff. The good thing is that if you like tangerines, there will be more available!
