From this article we get these haunting words from Obama: "We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK," Obama said. "That's not leadership. That's not going to happen," he added.

Really? That's not going to happen? Many responses come to mind right now, but all of them involve cursing so I have to let them go. I've got to assume, and pray, that this is yet another lousy bit of reporting and that the "..." hide the real thing that's not going to happen other than legislation to determine how cool we can keep our houses; what cars we can drive and how much we can eat. And who cares if other countries say OK? This is one of the most appalling reports of a politician's comments I've ever read.

In related news, we now find that because of global warming, there will be fewer hurricanes: Hurricanes and tropical storms will become less frequent by the end of the century as a result of climate change, US researchers have suggested.

How about that. It was only just recently that we were going to have non-stop, cataclysmic hurricanes due to global warming. That's all I can manage to post. Between these two stories, I can barely maintain control of my gag reflex.

    I'm not against individual efforts to conserve, but I am definitely against legislation requiring conservation.
