I’ve got two quick environmental links for you today. The first has to do with pollution. You know that I’ve said at this blog all along that cap-and-trade is stupid, not only because it will destroy America’s economy, but because the really big up-and-coming polluters are China and India. Turns out I was wrong: they’re not up-and-coming; they’re here and now, as are Africa and the Gulf countries. America is a pollution piker.
Also, as you may have seen before, there is increasing evidence that oil is not a finite resource, dependent on the transformation of prehistoric plant and animal matter. Instead, it might be a recurring product produced in the very bowels of the earth. Cool. (H/t Pierre of Pierre Legrand’s Pink Flamingo Bar)
