So I'm watching the news for some reason, and I learn that WINTER has completely incapacitated Great Britain. Apparently, a once in a 100 years snow storm is not something to be budgeted for. Who needs snow clearing trucks or whatnot (nevermind that you can repurpose construction trucks for snow clearing..)
Yet Great Britainites sure seem to have money to put into Global Warming carbon credit initiatives, to send people to Copenhagen in limousines to negotiate pointless cap and trade policies.
Great Britain is for the most part on the same latitude as much of Canada. Surely they could have used some of that global warming money to insure themselves against Canada-like weather.
