Puzzle me this sycophants of The Goracle why are some experts worried about the ever increasing number of carbon neutral schemes?

How does one actually measure the carbon reductions?

There is no central registry where you can register your credits and track who owns them, so there is the potential for abatement providers – like The Goracle’s Inconvenient Loot – to sell a credit for the same emission reduction to multiple parties.

But what the hell right?

It feels good, makes you “believe” you are saving the planet right?

Meanwhile, Sydney, Australia leads the World back into the Dark Ages, literally.


UPDATE: As the other side of the World goes dark police forces are on alert.

Dith Pran Dies at 65

Dith Pran, a Khmer Rouge survivor whose experiences in Cambodia were adapted into the award-winning movie The Killing Fields, died early on Sunday at the age of 65, his friend and former New York Times correspondent Sydney Schanberg said.

Dith, who had been battling pancreatic cancer since January, died in the early hours at a hospital in New Jersey, with his ex-wife at his side.

“Pran was a special person, a very special person. Messages are pouring in from people who met him only once saying that he made a deep impression on them. And he did, on everybody,” Mr Schanberg said.

“He really meant everything to me.”

Dith had lived in New Jersey while working as a photojournalist at The New York Times – a position he had held since 1980.

My tolerance for Howard Dean never was at a level beyond that given swatting the odd fly on occasion but after McCain released his first general campaign ad I can’t resist swatting the asswipe.

For those not aware the McCain ad features his Vietnam record and vast military experience. Naturally Dean had to pounce on the chance to look like the fool.

“John McCain can try to reintroduce himself to the country, but he can’t change the fact that he cast aside his principles to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with President Bush the last seven years.

While we honor McCain’s military service, the fact is Americans want a real leader who offers real solutions, not a blatant opportunist who doesn’t understand the economy and is promising to keep our troops in Iraq for 100 years.”

Setting aside the 100 years tripe that even Dean realizes amounts to childish mis-characterization of truth (he can’t help himself the boy just comes out in asshats like Dean) is his idiotic swipe at McCain’s military record.

It was just a few short years ago he had this to said about the Dems last presidential candidate:

“Who would you rather have in charge of the defense of the United States of America, a group of people who never served a day overseas in their life, or a guy who served his country honorably and has three Purple Hearts and a Silver Star on the battlefields of Vietnam?”

Funny how Kerry, known around The Cavity as The Baroque Candidate, was the most qualified in 2004 but McCain who has as many if not more medals (and ones never tossed over the WH fence) is a ‘blatant opportunist’.

Dean you were, and always will be the consummate dickhead.

Praying for Boobies!

Another example of fine comedy writing itself.

Missing NY Rev. Found at Ohio Strip Club

Police say a pastor who was reported missing from his home in western New York has been found at an Ohio strip club.

A police officer patrolling the K.C. Lounge parking lot Friday morning in the Dayton suburb of Riverside spotted out-of-state license plates on 46-year-old Craig Rhodenizer’s car.

The FBI and New York authorities had been searching for Rhodenizer, who disappeared Wednesday after telling his wife he was getting his computer fixed at Best Buy. He is the pastor of a church in Lyndonville, N.Y.

Well… lets all assume he actually did get a “best buy.”

What key constituency group are the presidential candidates fighting over? Soccer moms? NASCAR dads?

Perhaps, but according to CNN if television ad spending habits are any indication, the keys to the White House may be held by Pat Sajak and Vanna White.

So what do you call the audience of Wheel of Fortune?

The Bon-Bon munching, latte slurping no-lifes?
