I’ll Be Back Soon…

Posted by The Diatribe Guy on June 29, 2009

Sorry for the hiatus. I actually do have a HadCrut analysis worked up that’s been sitting here for over a week, but I’ve been caught up in other things. Hey… I warned everyone that there would be times like this, as I juggle a number of things. Blogging is cool, and I consider this important enough to keep doing, but at times it just needs to take a back seat. I’m during one of those times right at the moment.

But I should get that HadCrut analysis up sooner rather than later, and soon we’ll be talking about June anomalies.

Here’s my quick hits:

  • Thank goodness the House of Representatives passed that climate bill.  They did it just when we in Wisconsin was enjoying some of the few unseasonably warm temperatures we’ve had in the last couple years.   Three days after passage, we’re back to 15 degrees below normal.  Coincidence?   I think not!  Thank you, Nancy Pelosi!
  • Obama says the White House will be changing light bulbs.   If they are looking for a place to donate their old incandescents, please let them know that I am accepting.
  • I’ve learned a great lesson in economics this week.  I’ve learned that passing a bill that restricts any development of energy that is efficient and trades it for alternative energy systems that are (as of now) inefficient, and that will increase electical costs, that it means “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs, Jobs, and Jobs!”   To quote one of my favorite movies: “You keep saying that word.  I do not think it means what you think it means.”
