By 10:00 P.M. last Wednesday, the National Weather Service measured a record-breaking 3.6 inches of snow at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada. It was the highest accumulation of snow recorded in the month of December since the start of official records in 1937.
The weather service dubbed the storm as “the eighth greatest snowstorm ever in official Las Vegas weather records for any month.”
McCarran International grounded outgoing flights and incoming flights were canceled. McCarran doesn’t have any snow removal or de-icing equipment. Stranded travelers stood in long lines waiting for taxis to take them back to the Strip for one more night while others with canceled flights wandered the airport in search of other flights .
Meanwhile in enviro-nitwit Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco, “environmentally conscious” travelers flying out of San Francisco International Airport will soon be able to assuage their guilt and minimize the impact of their air travel by buying certified carbon offsets at airport kiosks.
The general idea is that a traveler would approach a kiosk then punch in their destination. A computer would calculate the carbon footprint and the cost of an investment to offset the damage. The traveler could then swipe a credit card to help save the planet.
According to 3Degrees, the “green” company behind this scam,
The carbon offsets are not tax deductible. While the carbon offsets purchased at kiosks can’t be seen or touched, they are an actual product with a specific environmental claim whose ownership is transferred at the time of the purchase.”
So while the nation is gripped by record breaking cold and snow for the second winter in a row; and you couldn’t fly from San Francisco to Las Vegas, you can still help save the planet from global warming by purchasing an unseen carbon credit transfer claim.
Carbon credits are simply a pathetic way for the rich, like Al Gore, to continue to hypocritically lead lives that look nothing like what they are trying to enforce on everyone else.
Michelle Malkin wonders if they’ll let the folks who came up with Carbon Offset Offsets, also know as Carbon Debits, build their own kiosks? She says she’ll buy those
