Why you can't trust liberals, reason I-78

A major interstate highway acquires a 50-mile backup in a storm right here in Pennsylvania. And the liberals running Pennsylvania can't handle it.
One commenter in the story thread likened it to Pennsylvania's Katrina. While (fortunately) not as deadly as Katrina, the state response was every bit as incompetent as Louisiana's.
Fat Eddie, the governor who'd rather be a panelist on Eagles post-game shows on cable, screwed up. Royally.
Next up: A fix. Higher taxes. Watch -- the state budget will be coming soon and we'll be stuck paying for his administration's incompetence.

What devastation???

Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore has teamed up with Richard Branson. They have announced a $25 million prize for scientists who can come up with ways to tackle Greenhouse Effect to counter the global warming.
What's more interesting is this...
...this initiative comes just days after the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said global warming is more than 90 percent likely to have been caused by humans. That panel also predicted that the problem would raise temperatures by 1.1 to 6.4 degrees Celsius by the end of this century. This could lead to sea levels rising by around 18 to 59 centimeters.
Do you know how high 59 centimeters is? Not even two feet. In 100 years.
Can you say scare tactic?
