A few days ago environmentalist fear—mongers sounded another dire prediction. This time they tell us that the clean up costs resulting from global warming will come to several trillion dollars a year by 2100.
But everything considered this is actually great news. Only a couple of months ago, no lesser authority than Al Gore was telling us that we have only ten years to stem the progress of global warming. Mr. Gore prophesied that if we do not shape up during this window of opportunity, we will pretty much go up in flames soon afterwards. And yet now we learn that not only we'll still be around by 2100, but that we'll be even able to clean things up. What a great relief that is! The death sentence pronounced by Al Gore has been stayed at least for a century or so.
And while we polluting conservatives celebrate this welcome news, a word of advice for the global warming throng: If you wish to conduct your fear—mongering with any degree of credibility at least get your doomsday dates straight.
