Climate Change is Impossible

How is it possible that a planetary body that has endured ice ages, meteor strikes, volcanic eruptions, etc can be said to be under threat by a puny species like humankind? How is it possible that we (as humans) continually overstate our individual and collective worth despite all evidence to the contrary?


There it is, in once simple statement.  The Veritable “God of the Gaps” in Climate Change denial.  Humans are puny, how could humans take any hand in the alteration of the Environment?

One does not have to look far to see the veracity of the claim that human activity affects the local enviornment.  Trash and industrial waste go a long way to demonstrating the the localized power of human misadventure.  How about on a transnational scale?  Look at the Acid Rains that have ravaged the forests in Northern Ontario and Quebec, passed from plants in the USA and Canada.  What about Chinese pollution that reaches North America?

Doesn’t humankind sport the ability to crack mountains?

Doesn’t humankind have the ability to shirk gravity?

Seriously; there are people who use the internet every day and say “pfft, human achievement is nothing when compared to the rain and babies.  Babies are amazing mysterious things.”

I can type a few bits of text on a  box with wires in it and EVERYONE ON EARTH CAN READ THEM IF THEY HAVE A BOX AND SOME WIRES WITH ELECTRICITY IN THEM.  Why is it beyond some people to think that humankind might influence weather patterns a bit?

It’s amazing to live in a world with such people in it.  Dunderheads all.

Boss Limbaugh: Come on and get Newt

I can enjoy this all the way up here in Soviet Canuckistan.  Burn Conservatives Burn!
I can see right through this game; set up the obvious villain, look like a rational person next to him and lead the party out of the doldrums.  Easy stuff.

At least they are female prostitutes, Am I right?

It’s all in fun when these things go down; but moralizers like HAnnity really need to act with some sense and NOT put themselves into these positions; either walk the walk or stop the talk.  Okay?
