If you've been following the delightful chat I've been having with Erik about warmalarmists, there's something wrong with you. But that's your problem. Mine is that I can't even make up absurd stuff fast enough before it becomes reality.
Yesterday, I suggested we rid the Earth of animals to combat warming, and today, Greenpeace wants to begin with having people eat a lot more kangaroos – keeps down the roo population and the cattle population too, apparently. Two birds with one stone, so to speak.
And speaking of which, I mentioned a guy who was concerned about seeing too many birds during the winter and how this armchair ornithologist saw that as an ominous sign. Now wouldn't it be easier to shoot or poison the birds to ease his anxieties rather than impose new takes and restrictions on everyone?
I mean, every action has a reaction, so shouldn't some guy to the south be complaining that he's seeing less birds? Or is that reaction delayed because southerners are more laid back?
Look, it's so simple that I hope this will save Erik a lot of time if he decides to keep our discussion going: There's only about a fifty/fifty chance that any consensus is a good thing… or even correct, and we often don't find out for decades – that they were wrong, and until now, the worst that's happened is that a few million people in Africa have dies because we won't let them use DDT. Big deal, right?
Scientists are wrong A LOT, and when they are, it can be deadly. And frankly, Erik, like good liberals everywhere, just pases by inconvenient truths that don't conform to his mindset. And also just today, a judge has required that Al Puffy Gore's movie be shown with disclaimers if it is to be shown in English schools.
And the Nobel folks have added a new category: The Nobel Prize for Lying – sure it's a category in which no one wants to win, and sure, Gore is a shoe-in, but the good news is that he can avoid the award if he buys more carbon offsets.
I mentioned that there is no evidence that the Earth is warming, hoping Erik would take the bait. But that would require more effort on my part as well if he did. So let me explain by restating that there is NO EVIDENCE that global warming is occurring. There may be some evidence that the has warmed in some areas and that it might even warm a little more, and so far, as Martha Stewart would say, "it's a good thing."
But warmalarmiists at least imply continuity. And if the Earth continues to warm, and that becomes a bad thing at some point, advancing technology will deal with it. Period, case closed.
That's how simple this all is, and I'm tired of dealing with the subject. It's a non-issue.
Global warming as we know it is a scam. The hype is designed to advance careers and increase power and control, and people who believe it's real and an imminent threat – are stupid.
And if you hold any other view than that, which is to say, mine, which I arrived at all on my own, thank you, so I know it's correct, then you need to become better informed and prove that you were higher ranked in your in your Catholic high school honors class than I was in mine..
