Greenhouse effect? No big deal -- ask Norm

    Coleman is knee-deep in global-warming fray

    WASHINGTON - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vowed that California would take the lead in the fight against global-warming when he signed a bill last month aimed at reducing greenhouse-gas emissions.

    But Sen. Norm Coleman is suggesting that Congress strip California and all other states, along with the federal Environmental Protection Agency, of much of their authority to control carbon dioxide emissions.

    Under a draft proposal that has been circulated by the Minnesota Republican, carbon dioxide would not be considered a pollutant under the Clean Air Act.

    Coleman found himself in the middle of the fray over global warming when a little-known Washington newsletter, Inside EPA, posted a copy of Coleman's draft on its website.

    "My intention in this draft proposal is to find the quickest path to carbon-dioxide reduction -- that means finding a proposal that doesn't cripple the economy, that is nationally based and that will not be trapped in the courts," Coleman said in a statement Friday. His office said the senator was unavailable for an interview.

  2. The quickest path to carbon-monoxide reduction is to invest in nuclear power. Yet the greens who love Koyoto and that crap balk at nuclear power even though it is safe, clean and cheap.

  3. Kick his ass, Arnold.

    I'll support any kind of clean energy as long as it isn't the burning of dog shit. Man, I can't stand the smell of dog shit.

    What do you expect from the Senator who's related to the ex-NYC/Miami radio moron, Sidiot

    I thought Cliff Clavin was finally admitting that he may need to ask someone else for an answer instead.

    Ol' Norm better get on the stick as far as getting his bill through Congress. Come January, it's gonna be a lot tougher.

    It's not to Minnesota's credit that they actually elected the spastic.

    I'm sure there were gasses in his youth he'd rather not be brought up.
