I have to admit that the “climate change” sham is brilliantly devised. If it’s colder than normal, that’s evidence of man-caused climate change. If it’s warmer than usual, that’s evidence of man-caused climate change. And now politicians who are killing the economy and putting people out of work (where they all too often stay) can claim that they’re saving the planet:

Want to reduce the effects of global warming? Stop working so hard. Working fewer hours might help slow global warming, according to a new study released Monday by the Center for Economic Policy and Research.

A worldwide switch to a “more European” work schedule, which includes working fewer hours and more vacation time, could prevent as much as half of the expected global temperature rise by 2100, according to the analysis, which used a 2012 study that found shorter work hours could be associated with lower carbon emissions.

The Center for Economic Policy and Research is a liberal think tank based in Washington.

In the old days if you made an effort and put in a lot of hours to better yourself and improve your station in life, you were called a hard worker. Now you’re an eco-terrorist.

There are 8.5 million more Americans not in the labor force than there were when Obama took office. In other words, the US president is doing his part to combat global warming.

    Does Barry`s melting ice cream cone cause global warming ?

    "…….. , could prevent as much as half of the expected global temperature rise by 2100, …… "; so does that lower the rise then to 1°C ?

    A large American co. CEO traveled to France to tour a factory to learn how French workers performed after being asked to bring his biz to France. He asked the reps, "Do you think I`m stupid ? The workers get an hour for lunch and breaks, talk for 3 hrs and work for 3 hrs. !" The reps replied, "It`s the French way" !

    It's all part of the "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em".

    I'm starting to think that the moon will be the next "new world" where people will go to escape tyranny.

    I saw that and loved it. That CEO pulled no punches and the union rep gave an expected response. I just wish more people would pay attention to what we will become if we continue on this path.

    So that is why Obama's is trying to destroy the economy…he wants to save the planet from global warming.

    I am waiting for dear leader to say that he sacrificed our personnel in Benghazi for the greater good of saving the world from global warming. Sending in help would have left a huge carbon footprint.

    The Greenest 'job' is NO…. job!

    ( How many times does Doug have to say that! )

    "more european". Great! I've always wanted to live in a studio apt. w/ a community bath/rest facility at the end of the hall with part time prostitutes and football fans traipsing in at all hours o' the night!

    ( In your 50's… ) God help us…

    "and more vacation time"

    Lol! E'f UUU…!

    Ahem, "vacation time". Uh huh… like lounging around in a PUB ( on your same BLOCK ) so as not to consume any of their precious resources, hoping some bloke will come 'round and perhaps buy a round?

    No thanks! Center For Brain Dead Talking Points. They've really stepped in it THIS time. Whatever credibility they may have had ended w/ Jack's Hot Me55 in Oakland circa 1989.

    Virgin Airlines and Space Tours is planning to charge $200 K for a trip into space. No word yet on the cost of a Moon Vacay / relocation !

    Oh…. BROTHER! ( Or should I say, Oh BIG Brother? )

    Oregon cattle prodding quickie, 11th hour sneak attack gun grabbing leg! OR HB 3200. It's a doozy proposed by Portland regressive "Mitch Greenlick" whom at 74 ( and like 400 lbs. give or take a few Hot Me55's ) thought he'd slip this in prior to choking on Mama Cass' chicken sandwich for goodski…

    Next, and coming under the; Things That Make You Say Hmm? file; trying to get the jump on taxes while Mrs. Will worked OT ( after laying off HALF the workforce in anticipation of O'GooeyCare ) and… I'm pretty sure I was being key-logged.

    If you've never had it happen it's like e-a-c-h k-e-y-s-t-r-o-k-e takes… f-o-r-e-v-e-r to..? So I flipped the polarity and went w/ the "Free Military Members!" offer from the email on Military.com and everything's going along swimmingly UNTIL I enter my Social! Then; flypaper..! Hmm…? Anyone have a #2 PENCIL?

    Oh no! Can you imagine the damage mankind can do to the Moon's climate?

    So, let me get this straight: we now think less work slows global warming, and, according to Pelosi, unemployment is the best way to stimulate the economy.

    Damn – these guys might just be onto something here. If I could just afford to take some vacation from work, I could relax AND save the planet. Hey, Obama – you guys just a threesome next weekend?

  12. SignPainterGuy on February 23rd, 2013 11:08 pm

    Just look what leaving a simple flag did to Mars !

  13. SignPainterGuy on February 23rd, 2013 11:20 pm

    You wouldn`t happen to be BMW Motorcycle`s "N8 K***" would you ?

  14. JetHeadJoe on February 25th, 2013 12:12 pm

    This is one issue where Obama is actually leading from the FRONT. Hell, if he takes ONE more vacation, we'll be in the throes of a major league ice age. I won't complain because I love to ski. As for everybody else, well…wait…silly me…what is the carbon footprint of his flights (and Mrs. O's separate flights)? Never mind.

    Climate change is increasingly evident, the natural variation of fierce floods occur, changing weather, hail, volcanoes, tsunamis, occur .. more. people should enhance their awareness than to protect our living environment.
