You have to wonder if today's event is just a hint of how the world is going to supposedly run if these Global Warming advocates begin to really persuade people that what there selling is true. Sydney, Australia was the first city to participate in what is gleamed "Earth Day" and so of course they turned off the lights from 8-9 as a reminder for all the people that those lights are currently destroying the world or at least participating in it. It doesn't matter that even though the lights were turned off CARS were still driving on the bridge but that is a little fact we need to ignore. It's the principle of the thing!
Looking at this picture I have to applaud them for their devotion but I have to ask, are we supposed to live in a world that is completely dark? Are we never supposed to have light? If that silly bridge is contributing to anthropomorphic global warming (human caused global warming) then why do you really turn the lights back on? These people only have one answer when a heretic like me points to this: "Your a doubter, you hate the planet". Or as Al Gore recently stated: "Those who doubt Global Warming are as bad as the flat-earthers." I guess your dad is bigger then my dad to right?
There is no doubt that there seems to be something going on with the planet. When we have a Tornado on Monday and Snow on Tuesday, it leaves you wondering. However, I cannot just push my head into the sand and pretend like the ship has left the port on this issue. NASA just recently said that the oceans are getting cooler or as one Scientist interestingly put it:
"Actually, no. The head of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) has actually acknowledged it. He talks about the apparent plateau in temperatures so far this century. So he recognises that in this century, over the past eight years, temperatures have plateaued ... This is not what you'd expect, as I said, because if carbon dioxide is driving temperature then you'd expect that, given carbon dioxide levels have been continuing to increase, temperatures should be going up ... So (it's) very unexpected, not something that's being discussed. It should be being discussed, though, because it's very significant."
Finally, I want you to think of this in "Liberal" terms. Think of how good this is or will be for that little evil thing called business. If you made Carbon Dioxide a pollutant or at least make it so that there is less of it you are making it like a precious medal. You are making it worth something. If you have to buy carbon credits to offset your use of it then someone else is going to use your carbon credits to use carbon. It's a complete circle. Businesses are "going green" and FORCING us too under some guise of trying to protect the planet. My water bottles are "smaller" to help the planet but they are just saving money so they don't have to produce as much as they used to and still charge me like they hadn't reduced the amount of water in the bottle. They make these "earth-friendly fuels" but don't tell you that Corn, Soda, Milk, and any other corn based food is going to skyrocket in price. While I would love to believe that these people are doing this out of the burning desire of conviction...yah, right. It's always been and it will always be about the bottom line. If you can sell less for the exact price you used to sell more to a group of gullible people without complaint, then yes, I would do it to. So Happy Earth Hour everyone; we've been had!
