Carbon ONset Calculator Designed to Negate Carbon-Free Convention

If only politics really was about people looking at the issues and making intelligent choices. Instead we have Glenn Beck telling his audience to "Take part in our carbon ONset program. We are asking you to make just a few small sacrifices to completely wipe out any potential energy savings the Democrats claim credit for." He wants to add "70-million pounds of new C02 into the atmosphere to offset the Democratic Conventions offset program."

Interestingly, his onset calculator actually is probably a useful device- anyone looking at it will quickly realize that it will cost them a lot of money to onset the democratic convention, that with current energy prices making carbon dioxide is expensive. ::Glenn Beck via ::Think Progress
