Governments to Regulate Temperature Setting … of the Planet?

If believing they can actually manage and plan their own countries’ economies wasn’t enough, this story sheds further light on the extent of the arrogance of many of the world’s politicians.

What makes Obama think he and other politicians can master the world’s average temperature, given that the U.S. government can’t even run a mail-carrying or passenger-rail system efficiently? The answer: pure arrogance.
