Conservative Matt Drudge leads his readers by the nose to the Right. However, one can infer by popping over to the Drudge Report periodically that he holds a view of Global Warming that isn’t party line.
Drudge highlights extreme weather regularly. One headline today is the story linked here. Much of the country has had rampaging weather conditions of late. 3,215 daily high temperature records were set in the month of June. A new vocabulary word for us to learn has emerged this week as well: Derecho.
All this ought to be of concern. But as I posted last night: Everything has become a racket. Global Warming deniers are committed to preserving things as they are. There’s still plenty of money to be made pouring carbon into the sky after all. Meanwhile, combining Chicago pols with global warming policy results in Solyndra. Which is to say, your money gets thrown down a rat hole to be collected by political donors and never seen again.
Where I sit the weather has been sublime all week. But I’ve got no delusions. Something is changing. Something big. I’d like to say I hold out hope we’ll face Global Warming head on and adjust our behavior. But I fear it may already be too late.
