Why are we wasting this money?
Courtesy of the indispensable Al Fin, we're directed to an article on Climatequotes which examines the amounts being spent by the US Government in 2011 on climate change research. They're quite staggering.
That amounts to almost $2.5 billion. Yes, billion, with a B.
Given the monumental fraud, featherbedding and waste involved in the whole field of climate change research, and the size of our national deficit, which is slowly but surely strangling any hope this country has for future prosperity (not to mention our children's future), is there any good reason to spend a single penny of that sum? If you can think of one, you're more creative than I am!
I can't for the life of me see how it's anything but more wasted money . . . at a time when we have none to spare. However, if you think that our political leaders will do anything to stop it, I have this bridge in Brooklyn, NYC I'd like to sell you. Cash only, please, and in small bills.
Politicians! Bureaucrats! Anthropogenic climate change proponents! Grrr! A pox on the lot of 'em!
