Global Warming Insurance
« on: January 02, 2008, 08:42:15 AM »
Even the investment world is getting involved in the religion of Gore :thatsright:

Quote
A decade after the U.S. Senate voted 95-0 to discourage the Clinton administration from signing the Kyoto agreement without dramatic commitments from India and China, it is worth asking how much the political climate for climate change has improved.

Beyond Al Gore's Nobel Prize, there are some positive signs. Today, far more Republicans, such as Senators John McCain and John Warner, advocate some form of capping and trading of carbon emissions. Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is getting ready to sue the Environmental Protection Agency for blocking stringent pollution controls in California. And a growing number of conservative evangelicals have started to embrace a response to global warming under the call for ``creation care.''

well at least the OP got the details right on Kyoto. Usually they say the "Bush blocked Kyoto protocol".  :banghead:

No, my friends, there’s only one really progressive idea. And that is the idea of legally limiting the power of the government. That one genuinely liberal, genuinely progressive idea — the Why in 1776, the How in 1787 — is what needs to be conserved. We need to conserve that fundamentally liberal idea. That is why we are conservatives. --Bill Whittle

I'll never understand why people are so quick to jump on fads. As long as it sounds altruistic, people often assume it is good or accurate. That the business world is buying into this is unsettling and Dixie, I think the only reason it is right is this is from Bloomberg news. They are considerably more interested in facts normally as trading often relies on the accurate news and not media slant.

Why the hell didn't I think of selling Global Warming insurance? My GOD, I could have made a killing!

Let nothing frighten you. 
All things are passing;
God never changes.
Patience attains all that it strives for.
He who has God lacks nothing:
God alone suffices.
