    Suddenly, that $4 a gallon gasoline doesn't look so bad after all.

    Wow. If we were smart, we'd build nuclear plants, and then sell coal to China.

    They say if all goes well, it takes about 10 years to build a substantial nuclear plant.

    Is La nina, or global warming to blame? It shouldn't be too hard to find out. There is a la nina year fairly frequently, which generally results in dry winters here. Just compare the weather in China with the la nina years of the past.

    I guess we'd better get started.

    Then get to writing your senators and representatives to tell 'em it's okay and that they better get their a$$e$ on the ball. Scroll down to "NEW ANALYSIS: CARBON MANDATE WOULD HARM CONSUMERS, JOBS AND ECONOMY":
