Dear Readers: I am preparing an opinion piece today for the San Diego News Network, so I will share links through the day on items I think are note-worthy.
Yesterday, I came across a science blog that I blogrolled: What’s Up with That?. I needed a reference for a piece on AB-32 that I am preparing. Today, the website offered this fine post: When the IPCC ‘disappeared’ the Medieval Warm Period. It is a fascinating review of how the UN’s IPCC group massaged the data related to Climate-gate.
Victor Davis Hanson had an exceptional piece on California’s citizens: Dronism. It is really a damning analysis:
The well-off like nice cars, tasteful homes, good food, and appropriate vacations — but not the oil, gas, coal, nuclear energy, transmission lines, timber, cement, farmland, water pumps, etc., that bring that to them. In California we like to leave old pot-holed roads up to the Sierra as proof of our environmentalism (cheaper too), and then clog them when we wish in politically-incorrect fashion to have a picnic in the mountains. You see, the mindset of the elite Bay Area denizen is to keep California pristine, rough even, for that one day a year in the wild experience, even as it turns out most green suburbanites actually like to go the lake or beach, and get in their carbon-emitting cars on congested roads to get there.
