Wendy, aka RightGirl, said the other day: “We absolutely must get cars off the road and planes out of the air because of the carbon emissions they create, which are warming the planet.”
Clearly, there are those who take her words to heart. From InformationIsBeautiful today:
It’s too bad they didn’t read the rest of Wendy’s post:
Temperatures in Europe could rise as a result of planes being grounded across the continent, according to research.
A study conducted after commercial flights were grounded for three days following the September 11 terror attacks found the average daily temperature range in the U.S. rose markedly – exceeding the three-day periods before and after by 1.8c.
Scientists claimed this showed that clouds formed by the water vapour in the exhaust from jet planes have a small but significant effect on daily temperatures.
Soooo… planes in the air, burning highly processed jet fuel, are a good thing? Is that why Al Gore flies all over the world in a shiny private jet? Because he’s helping the planet?
Let’s face it: They have no idea what they’re talking about, can’t keep their stories straight from day to day, and are just plain making sh!t up as they go along.
So, yeah. Ask me again why I don’t get all worked up over global warming.
