Friday's big storm has been another chance for environmentalists to blame climate change for the problems.
Wrong thing to blame, guys.
It's the trees.
What falls on power lines, knocking them out?
What damages your house?
Chop 'em down. Do some clear cutting.
Especially around power lines.
Sure, they give shade at times. But then, when you need them to be strong, they turn lethal.
No trees over 30 feet tall.
Maybe a tax on those trees that exceed the limit.
Tall trees are hogging the view, and when they fall they cause more destruction than smaller trees.
A tree tax?
Obama could get into that.
