Haley Barbour and his Godlike Powers Strikes Again!

Haley Barbour and his Godlike Powers Strikes Again!

By Special Libertarian Librarian Correspondent John Heeder

Anyone remember this from last year? Robert Kennedy all but blamed Haley Barbour, George Bush, and republicans for causing Hurricane Katrina.

Robert Kennedy on the Huffington Post (Aug. 29):


“Now we are all learning what it’s like to reap the whirlwind of fossil fuel dependence which Barbour and his cronies have encouraged…Katrina is giving our nation a glimpse of the climate chaos we are bequeathing our children,”


“Well, the science is clear. This month, a study published in the journal Nature by a renowned MIT climatologist linked the increasing prevalence of destructive hurricanes to human-induced global warming.”

This season, so far, we’ve been spared the destructive hurricanes of last year. (The season admittedly is not yet over.) Still, we have to ask: have Haley Barbour and his godlike-powers to control the weather struck again? Is the lack of destructive storms (like Katrina last year) the revealed will of Haley Barbour?

Let’s put this into Chuck Norris perspective: there are no hurricanes, there is only Haley Barbour sneezing.


Yeah, it's just incidental variation, just like the double heat wave the entire country has just endured.

regional and seasonal variations do not, by themselves, support or disprove anything, regardless of Pat Robertson's beliefs.


I'm sure this winter we will have to again endure the proclamations from idiots during cold spells, claiming global warming is all hooey because it's cold again.
If it's a colder than usual winter, we'll also probably need to endure the proclamations from other idiots, such as Dr. Robert Gagosian, saying that the cold winter is proof that global warming is leading to a new ice age.
