We truly live in an age of deep stupidity and insanity.
December 26, 2012 Cold Weather Across Europe, Asia Kills Hundreds
Cold weather in the past few days has sadly gone from severe to deadly. While unusually high snowfall has disrupted the travel plans of millions of Americans, freezing temperatures have taken the lives of hundreds of people from Central Europe to South Asia. The BBC reports that in Poland, 49 people have died; in Ukraine, 83; in Russia, 88; and in India, at least 93. The majority of those dead are the elderly and the homeless.
The EU believes that they control weather, and they also believe that they want to make it colder.
Up to 70,000 British jobs are at risk as a direct result of European carbon reduction targets, according to a report.
The policies have pushed up the cost of energy, threatening the vital mineral industries which deal in materials such as cement, chemicals, glass, ceramics and steel, the study claims.
It says the aluminium industry has been ‘virtually eradicated’ after closures in Anglesey and Northumberland, and blames policies which penalise ‘energy-intensive’ industries for emitting too much carbon dioxide.
As a result, firms in such industries, which employ 70,000 people, could be driven abroad where there are less stringent targets, costing jobs on our shores with no overall environmental benefits.
Not to be outdone, the new US Secretary Of State says that the US controls the climate and wants to punish US businesses.
They all belong in a mental institution. In more rational times, our leaders would be under 24 hour professional supervision and permitted to hold no sharp objects.
