The never ending walking tour of cemeteries to whistle through

The usual cheerleaders are out to sing the blessings of increased levels of carbon monoxide:

“The Earth has had many-times-higher levels of CO2 in the past,” said Marc Morano, former spokesman for Republican Senator James Inhofe and executive editor of Climate Depot,
a blog that posts articles skeptical of climate change. “Americans
should welcome the 400 parts-per-million threshold. This means that
plants are going to be happy, and this means that global-warming
fearmongers are going to be proven wrong.”

Marc Morano, the 21st Century’s Lysenko, here to encourage as much pollution as a smokestack can bellow.

Meanwhile, in reality:

For years, scientists have worried about the impact of climate change in
the invaluable Himalayan region. Recent research seems to confirm
worries that a warming world is melting one of Earth’s most iconic, not
to mention tallest, summits: Mount Everest.

Of course, the elimination of glaciers in the Himalayas is no big deal — they are only the predominant source of fresh water for about one in every four people in the world.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
