Stick a fork in it
John Hinderaker at Powerline again:
“The IPCC’s fundamental conclusions, relating to the allegedly unprecedented warming of the past half-century, are based on bad surface temperature data and are contradicted by more-reliable satellite data and by our knowledge of the earth’s climate history. We know for a fact, in short, that the computer models that are the only basis for the AGW theory are wrong…”
Stick a fork in it; Global Warming is done. So, John asks, why not get on with “drilling for oil and gas? We have huge supplies of oil and gas under our control, but our oil companies–which by international standards are tiny in terms of the quantity of petroleum to which they have access–are legally prevented from developing it and, in some cases, even exploring for it.”
Ah, but that would require some common sense in our political class. Why would they want to provide energy sector jobs in a time of high unemployment? Why would they want to lower energy costs by increasing the supply, with all the attendant economic benefits that would ripple throughout the economy? Why decrease our dependence on foreign sources?
