Global Warming “News”: Another asinine GW idea and HAPPY FEET penguins

French towns worried about fuel prices, pollution and striking transport workers need look no further than the horse.

Horses are a possible alternative for vehicles such as school buses and refuse trucks, say groups eager to pick up on global concerns about eco-friendly transport.

"It's all about sustainable development and bringing some humanity back to today's monotonous, machine-driven jobs," Stephane de Veyrac, from the French National Stud Organization, said at this week's annual conference of French mayors.

De Veyrac's group says it is the first in France to offer consulting on a wide range of horse-powered vehicles that could also haul bottles and aid street sweeping.

"It is a serious alternative -- horses are already in use in over 70 towns as replacements for gasoline- and diesel-powered service vehicles," said de Veyrac, pointing to the 'Hippoville' prototype parked in the exhibition hall.
Ethanol is already ‘eating’ into our food supply. An amish farmer uses 1/3 of their farm to feed their horses.
The MS Explorer, a Canadian cruise ship, was on a 19-day eco-tourism adventure with 154 passengers and crew aboard when it is reported to have struck an iceberg. The tour, which included 10 Canadian passengers and two crew members, was retracing the steps of Ernest Shackleton's expedition to the Antarctic from 1914 to 1916. His ship, the Endurance, was broken by the ice.
 

How much of a carbon footprint did the members of the “Church of Global Warming” leave looking for “proof” of global warming?

How many HAPPY FEET penguins are oil and fuel soaked because of the
eco-tourism ship sinking?

Give thanks for little favors

The combined second-grade classes of a south Carolina school district presented the 11th annual Second Grade Thanksgiving Play on Tuesday. Here the Pilgrims from the Mayflower and American Indians kneel down and give thanks for a bountiful harvest.

Oh no. Using the politically incorrect term of american indians.
Oh. no. Simulating prayer in a school.

  Give thanks that the ACLU missed this.

  God Bless You.
God Bless America.

UK Gun Control Failures: week of Nov. 17, 2007

While England has some of the strictest national gun control laws, here is this week's list of UK violence that the laws didn't stop:
A 53-year-old man is recovering after being shot in the leg outside a Merseyside pub. The man, who has not been named, was injured as he was smoking a cigarette outside the Phythian pub on Farnworth Street, Kensington, on Friday evening.

A 28-YEAR-OLD man was stabbed after being targeted by robbers, who then escaped with his briefcase. The victim was attacked in Boyd Street, Prestwick, at about 6:30pm on Thursday. He was in a critical condition at Ayr Hospital last night. Police are treating the case as attempted murder.

POLICE are investigating whether a gang turf war was behind the murder of a promising footballer. Etem Celebi, 17, was shot at close range in Hackney, east London, on Wednesday. He was due to have a trial with Premiership club Bolton.

Two security guards have been attacked during an armed robbery in Oxford in the early hours.  Four masked men carrying hand guns struck at the Abbey National in Summertown but no shots were fired, police said.

A DISABLED gardener who told off three children for trampling on his plants was then repeatedly beaten with a golf club, Ron McIntosh, 57, from Dundee, discovered three youngsters in his garden who claimed that they were looking for a lost ball.

FIREFIGHTERS were attacked with stones by a group of youths. The crew had returned to Hamilton, Lanarkshire, to tackle refuse fires shortly after 9pm on Sunday. Youths had shouted abuse as the crew put out an earlier blaze

A police sergeant was stabbed while trying to detain a man in a seaside town centre yesterday.  The injured officer suffered puncture wounds to his arm and a slash across his chest but his stab vest was said to have prevented serious injury.  He was part of a team of officers sent to investigate after reports that a man armed with a knife had made threats at a home in Eastbourne, East Sussex. When the officers arrived at the address the man had fled.

Robbery is a favourite of the gun-wielding offender. The highest number of firearms robberies took place on the street, followed by those in shops. Street robberies involving a firearm increased by 10 per cent to 1,439 in 2005-06 and by 17 per cent to 1,036 in shops.
How many illegal weapons are there?
The Government has no estimate, although it is clear that they are easy to obtain and becoming cheaper. Guns can even be hired for an hour or an evening. Shotguns can be bought for £50 to £200 and handguns previously used in crime for about £150 to £200. An imitation firearm can cost as little as £20.

A 32-year-old man has been charged with the murder of a woman who died from serious head injuries in Bedfordshire.

POLICE in Glasgow have launched an attempted murder investigation after two men were stabbed in an attack by a group of men in Govan on Monday. Both victims, aged 22 and 21, were taken to hospital.

A Sikh woman stabbed her Muslim lover's pregnant wife to death with a kitchen knife because she was carrying his baby, Manchester Crown Court was told yesterday. Harmohinder Sanghera, 23, a dentistry student, allegedly inflicted more than 42 separate injuries on the teenager, described as shy and slight, and then lifted her victim’s top before sinking the blade into her stomach.
Where is the call for a kitchen knife registry?

Detectives were called to Clevedon Close on the Smalley Road Estate in Stoke Newington on Wednesday night after reports of gunfire. The teenager, who is of Turkish origin, was found on the street with gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene. No arrests have been made.

A WIDOWER has told how he was gagged and attacked during a terrifying robbery in his home. Richard Winton, 59, had two fingers broken after letting the two attackers into his home in Clermiston, Edinburgh.  Neighbours who heard the sound of crashing went to Mr Winton's home to find a man in a hooded top rushing out of the house. The other assailant left soon after. They got away with £200 in cash and a credit card.

A teenager lay dying in a North London street from a single bullet wound as medics tried for nearly an hour to save him.  Etem Celebi, 17, was shot in the back on Wednesday night yards from his home in Stoke Newington. He had been sitting on a wall filling out forms for a new job as a lifeguard.

I am NOT advocating returning handguns to the british citizens but if the reason for gun control laws is to reduce violence and crime, the laws don’t work. How about treating the problems and not the symptom (guns)?

Stupid Liberal Bumper Stickers

I saw a gas guzzling sports car with the following bummper sticker. I won't comment on the Obama sticker.

I am pro-child but I chose to murder my preborn child.

Alternative Stupid Pro-Choice Bumper Stickers

Pro-life - Life is sacred.
Pro-Choice - Throw my inconvenient pre-born son or daughter into the abortionist's garbage can.

Parenting by murder.

Huh? Perfect example of liberal rewriting of history.

Here are more stupid liberal bumper stickers: There are no car thieves!!
Only undocumented drivers.

Illegal = Pronunciation: \(ˌ)i(l)-ˈlē-gəl\
: not according to or authorized by law : unlawful, illicit;
Illegal aliens break the law getting into this country.

I am a native american.
I am not an american indian.

Letting someone keep their own money is NOT redistribution of wealth.

What is the dumbest liberal bumper sticker you have seen?
Besides voting for Hillary.

Global Warming “News”: Founder of the Weather Channel slams GW

Taking aim at Al Gore and other "climate change" activists, the founder of the Weather Channel says the campaign to promote the theory of man-made global warming is "the greatest scam in history."

John Coleman, now a meteorologist for San Diego TV station KUSI, calls it a "manufactured crisis" by "dastardly scientists with environmental and political motives" who have "manipulated long-term scientific data to create an illusion of rapid global warming."

Coleman, writing on the website of the International Climate and Environmental Change Assessment Project, alludes to Gore's award-winning campaign featuring his documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth."

Coleman says he has studied the scientific data and arguments on the issue and conferred with numerous scientists. "I know I am correct," he asserts. "There is no run-away climate change. The impact of humans on climate is not catastrophic. Our planet is not in peril. I am incensed by the incredible media glamour, the politically correct silliness and rude dismissal of counter arguments by the high priest of global warming.

Coleman believes scientists with political motives have been joined by extremist environmentalists "to support and broaden the "research" to further enhance the totally slanted, bogus global warming claims." "Their friends in government steered huge research grants their way to keep the movement going," he says. "Soon they claimed to be a consensus."

China is building new coal fueled power plants at a rate of one every TWO days.
