Pot Calling Kettle

Las_vegas I haven't made up my mind about anthropogenic global warming (AGW). But I do know what I think about this story.

RENO, Nev. - Nevada is among the states with the most dramatic increase in average temperatures the last 30 years, according to a new study that examines the impact of global warming across the country.

"The scientific evidence of global warming is incontrovertible, and Nevada is feeling the heat more intensely than most of the rest of the U.S," said Stephen M. Rowland, Professor of Geology at University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

"Nevadans are starting to understand that global warming is affecting us right now, and that our elected officials need to start making some tough choices to protect our quality of life," said Kyle Davis, the Policy Director for the Nevada Conservation League and a member of the Governor's Climate Change Task Force.

What I think is that it's impossible to imagine a place with a bigger per capita carbon footprint than Las Vegas. Nevada is a place whose very existence is based on a deliberate, systematic and wanton disregard for the natural order. So, please shut up! Or at least have the decency to turn down the lights.
