Well, once again the Incovenient Doof has gotten it wrong. Yep, Global Warming is simply not cooperating with the bloviating one and things are a little different than predicted by the moonbats. Apparently, 2007 wasn’t the warmest year on record, nor did it far surpass the dreaded 1998 in temps and death and destruction.
Oh and all those hurricanes that were going to devastate the earth didn’t come either. We still aren’t living on a vast dessert wasteland and look at that, life is going on as usual. Marauding bands of homeless survivers are not prowling the neighborhood looking for water, supplies or anyone’s delectible teenaged daughter. Nor are cars developing personalities and holding people up at the local ATMs.
In a way, it’s sad because the newspapers then would have a lot of great headlines with which to frighten the bageebers out of us and sell newspapers at the same time, thereby saving their sorry asses for another day and keeping their rags in print.
Some scientists even have the nerve to think that the sun actually has more power over the climate than cars. Can you imagine? The sun, a mere fireball in the sky, could have something to do with the climate? Heresy, I say.
In fact, it seems that we may be going toward a period of global cooling. Bummer, because I’m a sunshine gal and I hate being cold, but luckily I have plenty of heating oil and my car has a good heater too, so I guess I’ll manage.
The debate is not over, my friends, you can bet your Ug boots on that. And in fact, the debate will probably go on forever until man gets it through his head that he cannot control the planet nor its weather patterns. And realizes that we simply live here and while we should be good stewards of the place in which we live – we need to get over the arrogant of belief that we actually cause the weather. That’s all I’m saying.
