Romney may have lost the election, but it's not slowing him.
Oh wait...nevermind, this is MIT, the institution of higher vegetation:
In a bruising open letter to President Obama, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is urging the administration to give up its bungled, politically-driven green energy program to focus exclusively on new taxes and industries aimed at fixing global warming.
"You have the power and the opportunity to lay the groundwork for a new clean-energy policy that will help us avoid the worst consequences of climate change," said the letter, published in the MIT Technology Review. "It is quite possible that if this is not done over the next four years, it will be too late."
Aren't those folks supposed to be brighter than that? While it's hard to fault them for blistering Barky over his penchant for "crony green-ism", they're really barkying up the wrong tree - they should be directing their efforts toward leaders in China, India, and South Korea.
Oh, right - those governments are too busy growing their economies to priff around with Saving The Planet™; besides, they're not likely to award grant money to MIT. Meanwhile, thanks to fracking and other technologies, carbon emissions in the United States have fallen by 13 percent over the last five years and are now at their lowest level since 1992, around the time when many of today’s college students were born. And everybody knows that carbon dioxide causes man-made global cooling/global warming/climate change.
