I like fireworks. Fireworks are cool. But you can’t set them off in areas that have been experiencing drought conditions. So, for example, there won’t be many Fourth of July fireworks displays in Oklahoma this year. You have to wonder what Senator Jim Inhofe (R-Oil & Gas) thinks about that. Senator Inhofe was the pioneer of global warming skepticism. He was denying climate change when it wasn’t yet fashionable. I guess others saw how well it paid. Oh well. Sooners are revisiting their Grapes of Wrath period, they can’t properly celebrate our independence from the Brits, but at least they are good at denial.
