Sky Turns Black, Falls on Wisconsin

That'll be the next headline from the JS Enviro-Wacky desk.

Wisconsin generates greenhouse gases linked to global warming at a rate that is about one-third faster than the national average, a Journal Sentinel analysis found.

This trend will only escalate because the state's utilities are on the leading edge of a national building boom of coal-burning power plants, fueled by an ever-increasing appetite for electricity.

Yeah. So?

The state's growing addiction to coal-based power comes as global warming has vaulted into the national conversation, thanks to warm winters, the melting polar ice cap and a growing media spotlight that includes former Vice President Al Gore's 2006 documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth."

Now I get it. The authors went to a movie and based on its incontrovertible truth-claims, see the future. And it's a very warm future. We know that because Al Gore told us so.

Obviously, the eeeeeeeevil executives at WE have a plan. They're going to reduce the cost of healthcare by simply 1) smoking, and then 2) cooking, the residents of the State.

In the meantime, perhaps the Sierra Club could obtain a life. You should be able to purchase them cheap here in Wisconsin; the future-discount is massive, according to the JS' "Analysis."
