Barely five feet. I don't think she
comes past my elbow. Paul Krugman is another and
I understand he's pretty short, too. Fracking and
drilling go back more than 60 years without
incident - until now. She has gas appliances in
her residence. Where she think it comes from?

Doesn't matter.........long as we keep
listening to Chicken Littles and frauds, America
will never become energy independent. I made the
point about global warming because she continues
to insist there's "scientific evidence" to
support the theory. I wrote a letter to the
editor back when "Climategate" was a big story
and her response was that "Climategate was debunked."
Why? Is it because she said so? Sorry, I
didn't get the memo. This woman is a complete
fraud and I wouldn't believe a thing she said
even if she put her right hand on Jesus Christ!
