Enjoying the Global Warming??

According to the Kalamazoo Gazette's online version, July 2009 will be the coldest July on record...and those records go back to 1887. The record for average temperature could be shattered by about 1.4 degrees!

And, this temperature chill is expected to continue for at least the first several days of August.

Several large local facilities reported substantially lower expenses on electricity, compared to last year, due to the lower temperatures. Air conditioner technicians, however, are lamenting the cool trend, so we have yet another example of changes in the "business environment" benefiting some and not benefiting others.

It's bad enough when politicians try to pick winners and losers in the economy in the areas they can control (taxes, contracts, etc.), but think about this: By trying to lower the global temperature (Note: This is their claim, not a fact), they essentially favor some over others!

Let the free market freely control!
