The Warmth?

Iowans worried about Greenhouse Effect, err Global Warming, err Climate Change made the Ragister and the Cedar Rapids Gazette in the last couple of days.

In the Capitol of the People's Republic, Iowa City, 100 Grannies are working to ban plastic bags, but their campaign has stalled.

If you can't get something banned in Iowa City, how bad could it be?

And the scientific community is united in that fact.

A co-founder of the group says -- “Many, many cities worldwide have banned single-use plastic bags. The entire country of Rwanda has banned plastic bags.”

It's a sad state of affairs if we're following Rwanda, should we implement genocide too?  

The other group founder says -- “Carbon dioxide levels have passed 390 parts per million in our atmosphere — this is the highest level in human history.”

It's not the highest it has ever been on the planet -- Levels were 3,000 ppm, or more, until the Paleogene period (beginning about 65 million years ago).

Contrary to what some would have us believe, increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will benefit the increasing population on the planet by increasing agricultural productivity.

Lastly, we learn that 100 Grannies don't number 100 as only 75 women have joined the Grannies.

Plus, if you look at the picture that accompanies the article, at least one man is identified as a member.

Ed Fallon and his Great March for Climate Action, reminds us of Mao's Long March, received more Ragister publicity for unveiling their route.

Fallon claims to have raised $60,000 so far to help bankroll the effort.

Will Ed be paying himself from those funds too (Here We Go Again)?

Also backing Fallon are MiniCommie CONgressman Bruce Braley and Rob "Boss" Hogg, with the Hogg saying -- In the past, you would have an occasional flood. Now we just have one flood after another.

Unless you count last year's drought.
