The clock is ticking!

The rabid crowd at the global warming love-fest in Paris say global warming is caused by man, and that hotter temperatures and rises in sea level will "continue for centuries" no matter how much humans control their pollution. Nevertheless, the scientists urged the United States and other industrial nations to significantly cut their emissions of greenhouse gases in response to the long-awaited report. Why? If we can't stop it, why should we spend ourselves into poverty to slow it down just a little?

How little? Even if we reach all Kyoto requirements; Tom M.L. Wigley, chief scientist at the U.S. Center for Atmospheric Research, calculates that the earth would be only .07 degrees centigrade cooler by 2050.

How much will it cost? Earlier this week, I shared a column with you from Paul Driessen, a senior fellow with the Grassroot Institute. He says cutting access to fossil fuels would terminate millions of jobs, cost hundreds of billions of dollars, and send living standards tumbling. He also says deaths from winter cold and summer heat waves would soar, as energy prices rise and heating and air-conditioning become luxury items. -Ralph Bristol.

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
