Economic Collapse has a Silver Lining - at least according to the global warming kooks

The world's recent economic woes, which seem to border on total collapse, are bringing smiles to the global warming crowd.  While recognizing "it's a cruel thing to say," Nobel Prize winning atmospheric scientist Paul Crutzen goes ahead and says, "if we are looking at a slowdown in the economy, there will be less fossil fuels burning, so for the climate it could be an advantage."

So there you have it.  Even if the global economy collapses into depression, things aren't all bad . . .

Let's make them happy and revert back 100 years, were very little oil was being used.

Instead, every house had a coal furnace, or several wood burning stoves and fireplaces, with no emission controls.

Everyone had a couple of horses spewing methane all the time.

Ahh, those were the days.
