I just heard Obama promise the people of Florida that nothing like the BP spill would ever happen again. How can he keep that promise without totally eliminating offshore drilling? All that does is make me more distrustful of his pronouncements.

As for the Democrats' new Anti-global Warming bill, here's Ann Althouse's reaction:
You see why this is absolutely necessary, don't you? What if nothing is done and global warming... doesn't happen? What a disaster! But if disastrously extreme measures are taken and then global warming doesn't happen? What a great relief! It will be impossible to tell whether the solution worked or whether global warming just wasn't going to happen anyway. Win-win!
But what if these extreme measures destroy the economy and global warming happens anyway because China and India continue to burn coal and other fossil fuels, or the volcanoes in Iceland add so much CO2 that we can't make a dent? Lose-lose!

I think that no matter what we do, we're screwed-screwed!
