I don’t know why I find this funny, perhaps because it’s another one of Charles Johnson’s inane cut-n-paste jobs of articles and documents that he didn’t bother reading or couldn’t comprehend. Maybe we should do it Mark Levin style:
“CUT ONE. GO.”
“OKAY STOP. Holy crap. Who thought one of the biggest energy plants in the world, Plant Scherer, might produce carbon dioxide, the stuff that plants breathe? It’s coal-fired. Cheap energy. SO WHAT? They have scrubbers, and the clouds you see coming out of the reactors are steam. Water vapor. CO2 doesn’t even come close to doing the climate change dance that water vapor does, and the oceans are pros at it. The oceans beat out the jungles (I mean the rain forests) for methane generation, and there’s not a damn thing we can do about it.
“Guess where the coal comes from to run Plant Scherer? Wyoming! Why it’s not coming from Appalachia I don’t know. Has to do with economics. Okay, Go on…”
I can’t do Levin like Levin, but here’s what’s got Charles and others all squeevy. A draft of an unfinished report was leaked today entitled
and every blogger (including Charles Foster Johnson) who linked to it, apparently read it, checked out the the footnotes and quoted sources, and vetted it in under 10 hours. ALL 549 PAGES OF IT.
Nazi Germany named this process PapierKrieg.
P.S. Here are the direct links that Charles proffered:
