Linder on Global Warming

I need to visit Myrhaf's blog more often. On Friday, he posted a link to an editorial by Rep. John Linder about Global Warming.

(For those of you not familiar with Linder, he co-wrote "The FairTax Book" with Neal Boortz.)

Linder tears apart the agenda of the Global Warming theorists:
"In order to focus on you and what you are doing to increase the CO2 in the atmosphere, which, as everyone knows will destroy the globe, we do not discuss the activities of termites. Fifteen years ago it was estimated that the digestive tracts of termites produce about 50 billion tons of CO2 and methane annually. That was more than the world's production from burning fossil fuel. Additionally, cattle, horses and other ruminant animals are huge producers of both CO2 and methane, but, being unable to respond to our demands on this issue, their activity is ignored.
When it comes to methane, another greenhouse gas, termites are responsible for 11 percent of the world's production from natural sources. Seventy-six percent comes from wetlands, which provide habitat conducive to bacteria, which produce 145 million metric tons of methane per year during the decomposition of organic material. It is curious that the very alarmists on climate change are alarmists on saving and increasing wetlands.

With Al Gore's Academy Award last night, I think it is safe to say the Hollywood establishment could use a little Global Warming because their brains have frozen.
