Now we watch Algore raise himself to sainthood on the unfounded fears of global warming. Good capitalist are making money selling carbon offsets and pandering to the fears brought on by the word of these new age environmental prophets. Legislators across the world are coming up with laws to force folks to follow the edicts of the chosen, and liberty is once again at risk. Worse yet, so is the BBQ.
From The Barking Moonbat Early Warning System we find the following:
BRUSSELS, April 3 (RIA Novosti) - The government of Belgium's French-speaking region of Wallonia, which has a population of about 4 million, has approved a tax on barbequing, local media reported.The Bastards! They don't even know how to spell barbecue, and they want to tax it? I may have to boycot Belgium beer.
Experts said that between 50 and 100 grams of CO2, a so-called greenhouse gas, is emitted during barbequing. Beginning June 2007, residents of Wallonia will have to pay 20 euros for a grilling session.
The local authorities plan to monitor compliance with the new tax legislation from helicopters, whose thermal sensors will detect burning grills.
I wonder just how much CO2 and other pollutants will be emitted by the helicopters?
