Four Mayors to Watch

Lioneld Jordan Fayetteville AR
Raymond Baker Fort Smith AR
Mark Stodola Little Rock AR
Patrick Hays North Little Rock AR

These four mayors in Arkansas have signed onto a "Climate Change" agreement. Notice It used to be called "global warming" until it was obvious that there was no warming. So they altered the label so that whatever happens they need more money and control. To do what? Perform a quixotic effort to force the earth's climate to forever remain like it was when they were in college? Even if possible, it's not clear why that represents some sort of ideal that we should lose control of our own property and habits to maintain.

By signing up, these Mayors have pledged to go beyond the discredited Kyoto agreement on carbon emissions in their community. They also pledge to battle "urban sprawl". I guess that means using the government to control the use of people's private property and continuing to tax automobile owners in an effort to force us unto mass transit. A population dependent on government mass transit for mobility is a population that is easy to control.

FYI, Baker lost his re-election bid last year after being mayor for 20 years, and he died earlier this year. From what I know of the new mayor, Sandy Sanders, he is probably even more gung-ho about climate change than was Baker.
