It was scorned in the Katrina hurricane,
And we howled in the North Dakota rain,
But it’s all right now, it’s CO2 gas,
But it’s all right, biomass trash makes no gas, gas gas…*
* – Suggested shower lyrics for Rep. Brian Baird (D-WA) sung to the tune of a Rolling Stones’ hit in wishful rationalization of why its OK to support global warming alarmism AND the burning of biomass for electricity.
Rep. Brian Baird (D-WA) says that, “The climate crisis facing the world is no joke, and closing our eyes to the problems created by it doesn’t make them go away.” Rep. Baird is referring, of course, to the supposed problem of manmade emissions of carbon dioxide. So since he believes that we are a crisis caused by manmade CO2, you might reasonably think that Rep. Baird would be all for a climate bill that dramatically reduces rather than condones CO2 emissions.
Instead, however, Rep. Baird says that support from Northwest states for the Waxman-Markey climate bill is being “alienated” by the bill’s restriction on the burning of biomass (i.e., scrub wood and brush) from federal lands for electricity generation, according to a report from Carbon Control News (April 29). The Waxman-Markey-loving Sierra Club and Natural Resources Defense Council oppose biomass burning as undermining the bill’s chief goal — that is, reducing manmade greenhouse gas emissions.
Rep. Baird calls the Waxman-Markey ban a
“bad, foolish, irresponsible policy”
that he will
“work to the utmost of my ability to defeat.”
About the greens, Rep. Baird says,
It’d be nice if some of these folks lived in reality for once.
A worthy wish for us all, Rep. Baird.
