Last night from 9pm to 10pm residents of Salt Lake City turned off their lights. It was an initiative proposed by the current Governor to highlight the need to combat global warming. I stand with millions around the world in giving the governor and the City of Salt Lake a standing ovation in turning the tide Global Warming.

Seriously though, this is from a man who ran his campaign based on being a conservative politician.

Here's some facts:

  • The Global Warming scare is mostly a pile of political BS.
  • The energy crisis has more to do with political red tape getting in the way of progress than natural processes.
  • Turning lights off for an hour... Come on! If this was seriously an issue, what good would it do?

Somewhere, somehow, sometime, someone needs to standup and say, "Why can't we build new power plants that have minimal impact on the environment. Let's surround them with a nature reserve, so we aren't in people's back yards and we're helping preserve natural habitat."

Of course that would require both sides to be open to compromise... And that's just not going to happen.
