If you want to know where to save money in the budget, cut the vast sums of redundant funding headed to redundant federal agencies doing redundant climate change research. Four billion dollars to study climate change — and that’s just for this year!
Check the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s 2011 budget request, and go to chapter 15: Climate Change in the FY 2011 Budget. The numbers are staggering. In 2011, your government will spend $10.6 million a day to study, combat, and educate about climate change.
The big winner in the climate change money train is the National Science Foundation — they are requesting $1.616 billion. They want $766 million for the Science, Engineering and Education for Sustainability program, a 15.9% increase from their last budget. They also need another $370 million for the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP), an increase of 16%. They say they also need another $480 million for Atmospheric Sciences, an increase of 8.1%, and Earth Sciences, up 8.7%.
Oh, and $955 million for the Geosciences Directorate, an increase of 7.4%.
Do not skip this under any circumstances...
Video - Climate Change Pain by Al Gore - Dec. 2009
Global warming poetry from Mr. Awesome.
This is a new low even for Al Gore as he reads a personal global warming poem to a CNN reporter.
The problem for Gore is that his home is a carbon-sucking machine; he traveled on more than 200 private jet flights last year (return & departure); his voice and inflection are impossible to bear, and he's the most smug, bastard ex-politician I've ever come across.
Other than that, he just sucks as a poet...
