Global Warming Grinch
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, December 18, 2008

Oh, my ... Christmas will never be the same (tell me again about using "scare tactics" to advance a political agenda):
North Carolina Rep. Heath Shuler and forestry observers are warning that climate change could alter the state's Christmas trees.

Shuler and others scheduled a press conference Thursday to discuss the impact of climate change.

North Carolina's large growth of Fraser firs make the state a leader in Christmas tree production. This year, one of the state's Fraser firs is featured in the White House.

The trees rely on the cool temperatures in the southern Appalachians, however.

Environmental scientists say global warming could make it difficult for Fraser firs to continue growing in the state.
You know, I'm coming to view the phrase "environmental scientist" in the same way I do "expert witness" or "economist". You can find a "expert witness" or "economist" to back just about anything you want backed if you look hard enough.

Sure would like to know who these anonymous "environmental scientists" are, wouldn't you?

Legend has it that Heath Shuler could throw a football 80 yards in the air from his knees. He was a terrible professional QB because he didn’t have the mental dexterity to play that position. So, the obvious next step? The United States Congress. Where dumb people can play together.

I’m consistently disappointed in him... his first big thing in Congress was to try a law requiring a section of the aircraft for children so they couldn’t see the movies.

Now this... I wonder what stupid agenda he will try to push next.

So... IF a mythical event comes to pass, it MIGHT cause trouble for one of our state’s industries?

Hey, that’s a game we can all play!

"North Carolina citizen taxpayer serf docjim505 and many economists are warning that democrat fiscal policies could destroy the state’s economy, ruining every Christmas for decades to come."
