Katrina, Irony and Oil

Great post by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. over at The Huffington Post about Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour's role in squelching the United States' ratification of the Kyoto Accord on CO2 emissions.

Just thought I would point out the irony of having your state slammed by a hurricane whose power has been amplified by the CO2-warmed Gulf of Mexico. CO2, whose levels might be reduced by our participation in CO2 reductions mandated by Kyoto.

Anyone else believe that the entire arc of coastline from the southern tip of Texas to the southern tip of Florida is going to become fodder for a ongoing procession of Katrina-class storms over the next five decades or so?

If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments. - Earl Wilson
