Global Idiocy


We live in interesting times. We live in a quite interesting world. People in this world think that President-Elect Obama is Abraham Lincoln, FDR, Gandhi, MLK Jr., all rolled into one. When Obama proves he is just a man, look for world-wide depression and reality to rule the day. But, this blog is not about Obama (it will in the future, you can count on that). This is all to point out how naïve people are in this day and time.

In an article of the New York Ti...eh, I mean, Pravda (that other bastion of objectivity) is reporting the earth is on the brink of another Ice Age. I could be wrong, but I recall this same warning from Time Magazine, Pra...er, The New York Times, and other tabloids of the 60s. Again, I could be wrong. Anyway, back to the story...”Many sources of data which provide our knowledge base of long-term climate change indicate that the warm, twelve thousand year-long Holocene period will rather soon be coming to an end, and then the earth will return to Ice Age conditions for the next 100,000 years.” Well, my goodness! What will the Global Warming zealots have to say about this?!?! I can hear the moaning and gnashing of teeth even as I type this story. I can imagine a war declared by each respective group. No doubt, the battleground would be in the Arctic north where the poor polar bears are sweltering in the heat and humidity.

In Great Britain we learn the Brits, and soon the much maligned French, are going to ban flat screen plasma TV's in it's ongoing effort to become more “green.” The Sunday independent further reports, “"Minimum energy performance standards" for televisions are expected to be agreed across Europe this spring, they say, and this should lead to "phasing out the most inefficient TVs". At the same time, a compulsory labeling system will be drawn up to identify the best and worst devices.” So, my British friends, if you don't have that big monstrosity to watch the next football match now, you better hurry up and get one. Pretty soon they will be taken off the shelves. I'm just curious if they are going to take the flat screen TVs out of the living rooms that have already been bought. Ok, I'm being facetious now. But, the Global Warming zealots do not surprise me in anything they do. Somewhere Al Gore is smiling...and counting his millions.

And, finally, not to be outdone, The Sunday Times of London reported that “Performing two Google searches from a desktop computer can generate about the same amount of carbon dioxide as boiling a kettle for a cup of tea, according to new research.” You read that correctly. Doing two Google searches can lead to Global Warming. Oh, the added use of a computer, of course, adds to their lunacy. It wasn't enough that cows taking dumps in pastures contributed to Global Warming. Now, doing a Google search on cows taking dumps in pastures is responsible for Global Warming as well. I won't be around to see it. But, 50 years from now, people are going to look at this idiocy and just laugh their asses off in the same manner we do now at the “duck and cover” atomic bomb warnings in the 50s. You can count on it. Has the entire world gone stark raving mad?

Welcome to the 21st Century, President Obama.

Hi David,

I saw your blog on PsychoHits and enjoy your writing style. You are right on the money regarding the energy kooks. You may notice that they now refer to "climate change" instead of "global warming" just to hedge their bets. Of course that way they never have to answer to their claims, which is the trademark of the Left. Feelings vs. facts.

Dan,

The "climate change" cult members are a never ending source of amusement for me! There are so many holes in their theories, it defies description at times. Al Gore has turned a nice profit on this. Thanks for stopping by.
