This column by Cal Thomas I think is one of the best written about the globaloney warming cult that has seemingly gripped both parties and in particular, one Republican presidential candidate, Sen. John "F--- You" McCain http://www.townhall.com/columnists/CalThomas/2008/05/15/mccain_joins_global_warming_cult.
Now, the problem about the approach Sen. "F--- You" McCain takes is that he buys into the Al Gore view that the planet has 50 years or less left unless we "do something".
Also, it has been on the blogosphere that some of what influences Sen. "F--- You" McCain's "thinking" on globaloney warming is the influence of his daughter, 24 year-old Meagan McCain.
Now, she may be a nice young lady, but I do not think a recent college graduate with little real world experience should have such an influence on an issue such as this.
What can and should be done is some reasonable people-oriented ways to conserve. You know, such things as recycling, not wasting, using such items as reusable shopping bags to cut down on the use of plastics.
And, the free market can and will lead the way if science can agree, without political posturing, that there really is a warming of the planet and there is absolutely no doubt that it is primarily man-made. After all, the free market wants to have product to sell and customers to sell to.
The cap-and-trade scam that Sen. "F--- You" McCain supports is a big-government boondoggle. The claim by Sen. "F--- You" McCain that there will be a free market component to this proposal means, it will be a government market, no free market, component.
What is needed is a step back, and letting the the scientific community gather as much data as possible to verify or change whether or not there is such a thing as a warming of the planet.
And, if Sen. "F--- You" McCain really wants to do something, and on this it appears he does, is encourage nuclear energy. More and more plants need to be put either back on line and or built. Nuclear power is a clean form of energy.
No, Sen. "F--- You" McCain would be better served by talking more about issues that resonate with the Republican party that made him the nominee. He needs to address the globaloney warming not as a cult ringleader but a skeptic that is open to the possibility that science will go either way and until there is overwhelming evidence, there is really not much that can be done.
Please Sen. "F--- You" McCain, move on to something that actually resonates with voters. Like the economy and what a smaller government means for the average American. Get out of the cult.
