less natural catastrophes
What? If they are man-caused (apparently because of global warming) they aren't natural, eh?
The concept of human caused warming will one day go down as one of the greatest scams of all time. It was used to enrich a few (like Al Gore), increase the power of a few more (Democrats) and make a few outspoken wackos (environmentalists) feel good.
In the meantime, thousands of lost jobs, lost homes, busted up families, children forced in to lesser quality schools, reduced standard of living for everyone, prolonged recession if not complete depression and a massive increase in the misery rate.
It was a poor, poor, poor example of the joke US society has become that the media (already massively basised for this piece of crap) could only focus on the death of a odd-ball has been pop star instead of the very serious joke going in Washington that is going to help bankrupt this country and destroy the lives of our children.
