  • A wasted Effort!

    From an e-mail

    Think We Can Change the Earth?

    For all of you out there in America and across the globe who have fought so hard to tackle the hideous enemy of our planet, namely carbon emissions, that bogus god you worship named "Global Warming", there is some really bad news that will be very painful for you to process. It is my duty to pass it on to you anyway. This will break the heart of Al Gore......

    Are you sitting down?

    Okay, here's the bombshell. The current volcanic eruption going on in Iceland, since it first started spewing volcanic ash a few weeks ago, has, to this point, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet. Not only that, this single act of God has added emissions to the earth estimated to be 42 times more than can be corrected by the extreme human regulations proposed Washington liberal controllers for annual reductions.

    I know, I know.... (have a group hug)'s very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kid's "The Green Revolution" science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, going on vacation to a city park instead of Yosemite, nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your $1 light bulbs with $10 Chinese light bulbs ...well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just the past few weeks.

    The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth's atmosphere in the past week has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon. And, those hundreds of thousands of American jobs you helped move to China because of expensive emissions demands on businesses... you know, the ones that are creating even more emissions than when they were creating American jobs, well that must seem really worthwhile now.

    I'm so sorry. I do wish that there was some kind of a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud but the fact of the matter is that the brush fire season across the western U.S.A. will start soon and those fires will negate your efforts to reduce carbon emissions in our world for the next two years.

    So, grab a Coke, hug a tree and have a nice day!

    scha·den·freu·de (shädn-froid)
    Pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others.
    [German : Schaden, damage (from Middle High German schade, from Old High German scado) + Freude, joy (from Middle High German vreude, from Old High German frewida, from fr, happy).]

    Look, global warming may be snake oil, and, if so, good riddance to bad rubbish. But it's another thing altogether to mock the efforts of people who honestly tried to make a difference.

    The alternative, living in a world where absolutely no one gives a **** about anything, seems to be one of the major whines oft heard by the nostalgia crowd around here. I would submit that you live in the world you help create.

            Meh. The human race has tickets on itself if it thinks it caused it and even bigger tickets on itself if they think they have a snowballs chance in hell of solving it.

              A larger Icelandic volcanio ready to blow

              It may soon get worse for the environment.

              There is nothing wrong with wanting to reduce your so called carbon footprint and doing things that reduce pollution and litter. But, to do so because Al Gore says that the earth has a fever as he continues to live a lavish wasteful lifestyle, while you end up living a third world existence due to the Government mandates, is pure

                I think that Iceland should pay for all the carbons that they are spewing forth. If the correct government regulations were in force I'm confident none of this would have occurred.
