Nothing like being sick at home, giving some time for blogging.

This article points to one of the most infuriating things about today’s R party: The complete politicization of science. When science is on your side, it’s all well and good. When it’s against you, you ignore it or it must be bad science and you call for “sound science." Nothing like twenty-something political appointees with no science background editing scientific reports. - This irks me as much as the victimhood mentality as a driver for many D positions must drive R’s crazy.

Also, let's not forget W's complete flip-flop on his position to regulate greenhouse gas emissions.

Anyways, we can agree to disagree on the science of climate change. However, one of the biggest consequences of our political leadership’s refusal to do anything about it is the fact that we have been left behind when it comes to technology. While other countries have forced and encouraged their industries to adapt, they have pushed for technical innovation at the same time. Not forcing our auto industry to innovate (Michigan D’s can be blamed on this too) has been a big factor in their current sorry state. Tiny Denmark is one of the biggest exporters of renewable energy technologies, such as wind turbines and anaerobic digesters. Because others have been leading the way, the U.S. is playing catch-up with many of these technologies and we often end up buying the stuff from foreigners. Good for them. Not so good for us. Whether you agree with the science or not, the world is looking for ways to address these concerns. It is big business now, and it will only get bigger. I want us to get a big piece of that pie.

Hmmmm.... Speak of greenhouse emissions report I do....

The findings were that 9% of all emissions are caused by SUV's but a whopping 18% are caused by cow flatulence....

WHY DO DEMS HATE COW FARTS!?!?!?!?!
