Flash! Global warming no longer a danger: North Carolina finds solution!
It’s really simple, once you think of it: make global warming against the law! There! Job done. Man, that was ever so much easier than things proposed by those pointy-headed, needle-necked scientist fellers.
Here’s the story, thanks to TYD.
You really have to read it. Are North Carolina legislators really so boneheaded stupid as that? I had assumed that the majority would have at least a high-school education. Apparently not.
UPDATE: It occurred to me that this is another example of bending the needle—basically, denying reality and substituting for it a construct that is more in line with what we want. Another example is Obama’s decision that every adult male our drones kill is by definition a terrorist: that bends the needle in the direction of making the US look better to itself, but if the reality is that innocent people are killed—and that indeed seems to happen—the people who know them are enraged, and thus we facilitate, to some degree, Al Qaeda’s recruiting efforts.
