All Fluff - No Substance

If you want to know what liberalism is really all about, look no further than the global warming debate and some of the crackpot methods for fighting it that have been suggested.

In response to the carbon footprint caused by transporting fruit, Elizabeth Edwards, wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, had this to say.

"I live in North Carolina. I'll probably never eat a tangerine again."

What a joke! That's nothing more than a symbolic, worthless gesture. Even if global warming were a man-made problem, Elizabeth Edwards' giving up tangerines wouldn't do a thing to help the problem; it's strictly a political statement, as are most of the so-called methods of fighting global warming.

On Friday I wrote about the vegetarian who said that we should stop eating meat to combat global warming.

Singer/environmentalist Sheryl Crow has proposed a limit on toliet paper usage as a way to save trees:

I propose a limitation be put on how many sqares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. Now, I don't want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required.

Now, I have to admit that Sheryl Crow is beautiful and a fine singer, but what a nut!

The so-called war on global warming, like most liberal policies, is full of fluff and short on substance. Liberals love actions that make them and others feel good, actions that make them feel like they are solving problems.

Too bad they almost never do.

"All Fluff - No Substance" goes well with "All Politics - No Scientific Proof."
