Delusions of Grandeur

N. Carolina lawmakers reject sea level rise predictions

* Vote by Republican majority backed by real estate developers

* Panel of scientists projected big rise based on seven studies

* Democrats say vote makes state an object of ridicule

* Governor could veto measure, inviting legislative override

RALEIGH, N.C., July 3 (Reuters) – Lawmakers in North Carolina, which has a long Atlantic Ocean coastline and vast areas of low-lying land, voted on Tuesday to ignore studies predicting a rapid rise in sea level due to climate change and postpone planning for the consequences.

Opponents of the measure said it was a case of legislators “putting our heads in the sand” to avoid acknowledging the possible effects of global warming.

Opinion:

N. Carolina lawmakers have clearly demonstrated themselves as candidates for the Village Idiot Awards as they raise their hands Moses-like to keep the waters at bay.

That the world is governed by such fools…

At least there is a blessing, these idiots only control N. Carolina, the rest of us are free to humble ourselves before the onslaught of nature and the inevitable proof of future events.
