Moose Cause Global Warming

Couldn't resist this post by James Tarranto of the WSJ:
Don't Blame Bush, Blame Bullwinkle!"Norway is concerned that its national animal, the moose, is harming the climate by emitting an estimated 2,100 kilos [4,630 pounds] of carbon dioxide a year through its belching and farting," reports Der Spiegel:

Norwegian newspapers, citing research from Norway's technical university, said a
motorist would have to drive 13,000 kilometers in a car to emit as much CO2 as a
moose does in a year. So not only man but animals cause global warming. Apparently the only way to preserve life on earth is to wipe out life on earth.

Fighting Castro, A Love Story, by Kay Abella, tells The compelling story of Lino Fernandez, a Cuban doctor who became a leader in the internal resistance and was sentenced to 30 years in priosn. HIs wife Emy had to decide whether to stay in Cuba to help him survive or come to Miami with her three young children.

This story has never been told before. An in-depth look at one family's experience, it is a portrait of what many have gone through. I hope you will include it on your list of books on this blog. Thank you. Kay Abella, author.
