Al Gore said that the Earth has a fever. Catchy, alarmist metaphor -- what passes for sober scientific assessment these days.
Here's the latest alarmist headline, compliments of the Financial Times --
"Bush plays for time as the planet begins to burn".
It's official -- the planet has begun to burn.
Someone should host a global warming alarmist headline contest, with the winning headline published in all the leading newspapers of the world.
But wait a minute. Where have I heard this headline, or something like it, before?
I got it --
"Bush Fiddles while Earth Burns".
And that's the way this scorched earth Ball bounces.
