After a yet another frigid start to December with record setting cold temperatures again in America and throughout the world, one has to hope that the global warming fanatics are starting to question their cute little narcissistic theory. In fact, we know they are concerned because they do not even refer to their political power grab as global warming anymore.
May I introduce you to “climate change”, the latest envirohysteria crisis du jour. Climate change is quite clever really. A very “convenient truth” if you will. No longer do we have to worry about pesky little factual details like the growing polar ice caps, the growing polar bear populations, or the complete lack of an increase in global temperatures over the last 100 years. Nope, now we can just blame everything that happens on man made climate change. Rain? Man made climate change. Snow? Man made climate change. Forest fires? Man made climate change. Hurricanes? Man made climate change. Unusual rash in the genital area? Sorry, can’t help you there, but you catch my drift. Wait, was my drift caused by man made climate change???
I know Al Gore instructed us good little worker drones that the debate was over, but I believe this shift in the debate presents an opportunity to demand some answers from the “cool-afraid” drinkers:
– Why is Greenland called Greenland? Could it have once been green and then iced over long before man made CO2 emissions?
– Why was much of the Great Lakes region of the US covered in glaciers that melted long before man made CO2 emissions?
– Why was much of Arizona and Utah part of the ocean before it dried up long before man made made CO2 emissions?
– Why could Russian farmers farm northern Siberia for centuries until the area became cold and desolate before man made CO2 emissions?
– Why were there periods of time such as the Stone Age or the Ice Age, long before man made CO2 emissions?
– Why in the mid-1970s did the best computer models and the top scientists tell us we should prepare for global cooling?
I could go on and on. Look, we should try to limit our impact on the environment, but whatever impact we are currently having is the proverbial pimple on the elephants behind compared to our greatest source of energy. Yes, that boiling inferno in the sky that can burn off layers of skin in just a few hours, of which we know so very little about. Not to mention the forces in our vast, vast universe that we cannot even begin to comprehend.
By the way, if we are so concerned about our impact on the environemnt, then why aren’t we attacking beavers for their constant destruction of the environment? Somebody needs to do something about those dam dams. I hereby propose a beaver tax on all beavers making over $250,000, effective immediately.
