  1. The good news is that yesterday the EU countries announced that they have set a goal of reducing carbon emissions by 40% by 2030. The bad news is that Poland which has large coal deposits are really pissed off at the other EU countries about this. Poland is threatening to leave the EU, void all of its treaties with them, and go it alone. Some sources claim that Poland has consulted with both Mitch McConnell and Alison Grimes about how to play this politically. Both McConnell and Grimes advised Poland to lie their asses off about their true intentions and then mine and sell as much coal as possible to anybody who wants it until global warming kills us all. Grimes and McConnell indicated that China would pay top dollar for Polish coal. (Note: Maybe Poland has consulted with Grimes and McConnell and maybe they haven’t.)

  2. Hah, hah . . . funny story. The Permian–Triassic (P–Tr) extinction event, the one some gloomy Gus’ call “The Great Dying,” is believed to be related to elevated levels of methane in the atmosphere. Some believe methane concentrations, pushed by thawing permafrost and warming oceans, were sufficient for the planet’s atmosphere to actually catch on fire. Hahaha . . . Whatsa matter, nobody’s laughing . . .
