Leaders from around the world are flying their private jets to Copenhagen this week to attend a summit to develop a framework for global governance predicated on man made global warming or climate change. With this meeting as a backdrop, the United States Environmental Protection Agency is expected do designate carbon dioxide as a dangerous pollutant.
This “endangerment” finding by the Environmental Protection Agency could pave the way for the government to require sources that emit carbon dioxide and five other greenhouse gases to take measures to reduce emissions regardless of whether the legislature passes the unpopular cap and trade legislation.
Sail on, O Ship of State!
Sail on, O Union, strong and great!
Humanity with all its fears,
With all the hopes of future years,
Is hanging breathless on thy fate!
The begining of this Longfellow poem was used by Lord Christopher Moncton to end his address at Bethel University last week. I had never heard that poem before, but Lord Monckton told the audience that it was also used by Winston Churchill in an address to FDR as we entered World War II. It shows the deep love, respect, and hope that our country represents to many in the world. Lord Monckton also said these touching words:
Ashley George Hamilton gathered what little celebrity he had to garner an appearance as a contestant on this season’s Dancing With the Stars. In case you were wondering, he was considered one of the stars. Most people had never heard of him before his rise to fame, but he was voted one of People Magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People. Many thought that his appearance on the show would give him a boost and he could have been a slam dunk for the finals. Fate (or a lack of talent) did not smile on him as he had the dubious distinction of being the first to be voted off of the show. There is no word from Hamilton on future plans…maybe Celebrity Apprentice.
