climate crooks and losers all round …

Bishop Hill, showing the way to The Independent’s self inflicted demise. Driving a failed agenda for globull warming, losing:

Squawk

Further to yesterday’s post, it seems that the Independent will be ending its print editions in just a few weeks’ time. Leo Hickman helpfully reminds us what we’ll be missing.

Republicans in the US House of Representatives are currently trying to get a grip on one small part of the Washington bureaucracy by trying to get the National Science Foundation to concentrate on funding useful science. Lamar Smith, the Texas Congressman who is leading the charge, is firing off shots over NSF’s funding for public necessities like a climate change themed musical, an effort that set the taxpayer back some $700,000. He wants standards set in place – things like “increasing the health and welfare of the public”.

Reasonable enough? Apparently not. Entirely unembarrassed by their excesses, the bureaucrats and their chums are declaring their outrage. President Obama is even threatening a veto.

They work for you, I’m told.
