When the global-warming hoax is finally exposed, there will lay the roots: acid rain, and all its illegitimate junk-science children.
But the most recent announcement, that the glaciers in the Himalayas are really not melting away nearly as fast as reported earlier, should remind those of us who are still not completely politically correct that the huge quake in Haiti might have been predicted, except that our scientists were busy poring over and interpreting wrong data. Or, dare we say, while our media filled airtime with garbage. Geologists had thoroughly mapped where the unstable plates lie in the entire Caribbean.
Instead, an expensive adventure was devoted to firing a rocket at the moon. Oh, what fun!
We could have helped those poor Haitians accumulate supplies, water, etc. for an emergency such as this one. But a society focused on security, military strength and nation-building will ignore warnings (like the ones preceding 9/11), and our "help" will be like our disgrace in New Orleans after Katrina. A brief review of the silly history of FEMA and its neglect, beginning in Princeville, N.C., should convince any skeptic that we Americans are fussy and selective, not to mention racist about who and how we help. Just ask Pat Robertson.
