Glasgow Conference

 It seems that most of the world's leaders are in Glasgow, Scotland for a UN Climate Conference.  Good for them.  I bet Glasgow is nice this tie of year.  Our addled president is there, I'm sure with a huge retinue of syncopates from his administration, along with  cadre of hapless Secret Service Agents who would really rather be somewhere else, and a coterie of support staff.  

They are talking about renewable energy and getting away from oil and gas, and making the world less reliant on carbon.  Which is all well and good until you consider that the world's larger emitters of carbon are not at the conference.  Russian, China, and India have chosen not to attend.  RSVP with regrets, etc. 

Louisiana's idiot governor is in Scotland, trying to position Louisiana as a good place for renewable energy.  Of course, oil and gas has been a major player in the Louisiana economy for as long as I can remember.  It seems odd that our governor is in Scotland, but I'm sure that he's holding Biden's sippy cup while the president naps.  

I do wonder what the total carbon footprint of the Climate Conference might be, and observe that they burned a lot of Jet-A to moan and groan about something that they can do noting about.

When they start  acting like it's a problem, I might start believing that it is an actual problem.
