Spinal Tap- Gimme Some Money
The Business Insider reports:
Japan spent an impressive $78 billion on global warming research in the past six years. However, none of 214 projects produced effective results, according to an official report featured in Japan Times.
This "fruitless" spending is under scrutiny as the government suffers under a heavy debt burden.
For one, the government shouldn't be in the business of "science." For two, they need to cut spending. Here's an excellent example of how AGW does fuel a big business scam to take our tax money and waste it on useless government projects:
The Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Ministry spent about ¥1.6 billion on a project to produce livestock feedstuff from unsold boxed lunches from convenience stores. The project was abandoned after its management firm collapsed, the report says.
Yeah. Yeah... AGW deniers are all in the employ of the oil companies, right? Well, who needs oil companies when the government steals our money through taxes and then wastes it on nonsense like this?
Of course we should care for the environment and try to preserve it for future generations. But when the government tells us that they need to tax us more for such purposes, that should raise a red flag to any person who is not brain-dead.
Protect the environment for our children! Think globally, act locally. We don't need the government to interfere.
Hell, they can't even repair a pothole in the road without being late and way over budget. What makes anyone think they could protect the entire earth?
Hasn't the government screwed everything up enough as it is?
The Japanese government wastes money on this sort of nonsense and then wants to raise taxes to pay for government debt? I hope the Japanese have the energy for some Egyptian style demonstrations.
