Leftists Blame Bush…For Hurricanes!

Global Warming = Stronger Hurricanes reads the billboard in Central Florida. George Bush Just Doesn’t Get It.

Apparently, Bush’s supposedly anti-environmental policies caused the numerous hurricanes that hit Florida this year. Or at least that’s the implication of their ad campaign.

They obviously ignore the 1.2 billion dollars that Bush has recently allocated towards developing fuel-cell cars, which would have zero “Greenhouse Gas” emissions.

But since when have Leftists valued the truth more than their rabid partisan interests?

    Everyone knows the hurricanes hit Florida because God was pissed at the amount of spam he was getting.

    What is the Bush administration’s line on spam?

    Let me first say that caring about your environment does not make you a leftist. Not caring about it simply makes you an idiot.

    Second, 1.2 billions dollars toward developing hydrogen fueled cars is like having enough money to buy half a sandwich for lunch. It’s just enough lunch so you don’t starve. The Bush administration has thrown out that figure just so they can talk like they are doing something about the problem. And, yes, it is very possible to make progress on this issue. Bush simply doesn’t care. Or at least he cares less about it than making his big business buddies happy.

    Third, and finally… Hydrogen power is simply a big pile of bullshit that will only continue to fill the pockets of oil companies and Bush knows it. Since you haven’t done YOUR homework on the facts, read below.

    Hydrogen is not a transportation panacea—that’s the conclusion of a new calculation by two British researchers. In order for our fossil fuel vehicles to be replaced by true hydrogen automobiles, the U.S. would have to erect a million wind turbines or 1,000 extra nuclear plants. Anything else would continue to put greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and would not solve the problem of global warming.

    Hydrogen is an energy carrier, not an energy source. In other words, it matters how it is produced. Most hydrogen today is made from methane, a process that releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Or it can be made by splitting water molecules with electricity—but the electricity, today, is likely to have been generated by fossil fuels.

    Hence the conundrum. Unless hydrogen is produced in a way free of greenhouse gases, the global warming problem remains. But generating it without introducing more greenhouse gases is, for all practical purposes, impossible. Remember that the next time some politician preaches hydrogen-powered cars as the cure of the future.

    Everything is always a right wing conspiracy to leftists. Why that is the case, I’m really not sure.

    “I did not have sexual relations with that woman…that woman…that woman…that woman…”…..

    Every time you speak more carbon dioxide goes into the atmosphere. Bill Clinton spoke more during his eight years than George W. Bush has during his first four.

    That being said, it’s obvious who the true environmental conservationist is, and it’s not big-mouth Bill Clinton, or John “leggo my Eggo waffle; my decision” Kerry.

    Save the environment. Keep your mouth shut.

    I guess they think they can ignore that as a mitigating factor since those cars don’t yet exist.

    “Carbon is a breathing bi-product, with wolves,” as your chosen moniker indicates, exhaling puts carbon dioxide into the air. Talking as a function depends on breathing in air and exhaling it. Try to talk without breathing. Try it for a really long time. If we could get all those who care little about our environment to try this, we might start making progress on protecting our world.

    I don’t think talking requires any significant increase from normal respiration; however, exercise does. I would guess that Bush exercises significantly more than Clinton ever did. Therefore, I believe Bush has pumped more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
