One possibly redeeming (or exacerbating) feature of the shocking story that aborted fetuses have been burned at an Oregon facility that converts biomedical waste into municipal energy is that the babies may have helped combat climate change. According to the website of Covanta, the energy company that operates the Oregon facility, the energy-from-waste (EfW) process "offsets greenhouse gases to combat climate change."

The alternative, the company points out, is depositing organic waste in landfills, where it will convert into methane and other hydrocarbons. Methane, which forms a three-dimensional, tetrahedral molecule, is a far more powerful greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, trapping far more heat per unit volume than the carbon dioxide that results from controlled combustion in an environmentally sensitive energy facility.

Other Covanta facilities provide formal carbon offsets to companies looking to reduce their impact on climate change. These facilities, both in Florida, generate "voluntary credits" that can be bought on the open market "by companies and organisations interested in voluntarily reducing greenhouse gases." A compulsory cap-and-trade system, such as exists in California, could place new market value on incinerated medical waste, including fetuses.

It's going to take a lot after this to separate leftists from the Nazis.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

The water is boiling furiously and the frog is saying,"Ah, this is just right."
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)
