The gift that keeps giving

Myron Ebell is an anti-environmental corporate arsonist. His job is to set a free-market fire on our life-sustaining environment in order to burn the whole thing up before anyone can stop it.

For the last ten years he's been keeping the flames growing while diverting the fire engines to other places through lies and hoax calls in order to ensure that everything is too late by the time that help arrives.

Myron's work is effectively done now. All he has to do is stand back and watch us burn. He gets the oil well pissing into the ocean from a mile deep leak. Doesn't matter what he does now; no one can stop the massive damage.

For example, two days ago the President signed a memorandum on fuel efficiency standards:
I want to introduce some of the folks who are onstage who have been integral in making today possible. You’ve already heard about the wonderful team here at the White House -- Carol Browner, Ray LaHood, and Lisa Jackson. But in addition, we have onstage a number of people who were absolutely critical. Martin Daum, the CEO of Daimler Trucks; Mr. Anthony Dunkley, who is a driver for Waste Management; Mr. G. Tommy Hodges, chairman of the board, American Trucking Association; Mr. Alan Reuther, legislative director for the UAW; Mr. Dennis Slagle, CEO of Volvo; Mr. Tim Solso, CEO of Cummins; and Mr. Daniel Ustian, CEO of Navistar. Please give them a big round of applause. (Applause.)

We also have with us some legislative leaders who have been champions of not only the auto industry but also the environmental movement, and I want to thank them for being here. One of the deans of the House of Representatives, Representative John Dingell -- please give him a big round of applause. (Applause.) Representative Ed Markey is here from Massachusetts. (Applause.) Representative Chris Van Hollen is here. (Applause.) And Representative Henry Waxman. (Applause.)
Normally this type of coalition would drive Myron Ebell berzerk. But he can sit back and relax with his tumbler of Martini, because it is now all too little too late. 20 years ago it could have made a difference. But today the effort is pitiful in relation to the scale of the problem, which requires a 90% cut in CO2 emissions by 2050.

That's why the wires have been dead on the name "Myron Ebell" for over a month.

But we keep monitoring it, because the man's got to earn a living somehow, just from day-to-day -- even though his offspring are totally doomed. After all, he didn't burn the planet for a proper prize, like Lee Raymond of Exxon and his $100million retirement payout; he did it for a pathetic little salary.

I wonder where he'll pop up next.
