In Support of Global Warming "Alarmists"


In general I do not engage in political or enviro-political debate. ;0)... I'd rather have a beer. And, if you think global warming is all hooey and the 99.9% of scientists that have their panties in a twist over it are all wet, then there is nothing I can say to change your mind. I don't even want to try. Watching dust would be more entertaining. But... there are a couple of things. One is the picture above which I kinda like. (though it isn't the one I was looking for!) The other is I'd like to say a couple of things in defense of those poor pantie twisted scientists.

First off, Galileo was a long time ago. Remember that guy? The one lone fellow that stood up and said "'sup... this joint is ROUND," or words to that effect and the Catholic church got all huffy. See, my theory is... it was all a conspiracy. The Catholic church and Galileo were in cahoots to create the most perfect metaphor of all time. Doesn't it fit perfectly now? Hah. Told you so. I might not be able to convince you what the pantie twisted scientists of today are wringing their hands over, but I can enlighten you about the first scientific scalliwag, the first deceiver and scumguffin, the master metaphor maker himself, Galileo.

But, those lab coat wearing test tubers of today and their strident warnings... Look at it this way. Let's say that the 99.9% of scientists are wrong and there is no global warming. Its all sun spot frolicking. But, being the socially oriented individual that you are, even though you doubted the GW alarms you've gone along with the program. And you end up with what? Less money, for sure for sure, but also a clean and healthy environment with a sustainable energy source.

And now we look at the other side... say those scalliwagging pantie twisting lab coaters are right. And you, remembering the example of that first scalliwag Galileo dissed their efforts. What do you end up with? It won't be just the scientists that end up all wet.

Personally I'm a believer in it. To think that 6.5 billion people live on the planet spewing all that pollution and it's NOT having an effect??? Come on. Great post!

Especially those of us living at the costal regions closest to the polar ice cap. My sister is begging for all of us to keep killing the planet. She will have beach front property any day now in Tucson.

Great photo & post :)

I tend to look at all scientific alarms in the same way I look at religion. It is better to err on the side of that which can hurt you most. That is, would you rather go through life not believing, but then end up where you have to explain that, or would you rather go through life believing, but then die and just be dead - no anything on the other side? If you believe, you will not be disappointed. If you don't believe, the best you can hope for is oblivion.

That's not to say I'm a big environmentalist, because I'm not. But, I see the logic in it, that's for sure.

This post gives us all Food for Thought, whether we agree or not. I guess my Mother was right: only use what you need and re-use whenever you can.

Unfortunately someone has to be right and what is reported on the news does weigh in favor of beach front in Arizona.

I do believe in global warming, I do, I do
