Let me get a couple orders of business out of the way. First of all, happy 40th birthday to my brother. He’s lucky enough to share the ever important Earth Day with the rest of the world. Happy birthday kind sir, your niece would love to see you!
For those green types, you know those who think composting is nifty, I think we need to talk about global warming. Last weekend here in Seattle it snowed. Yeah, snow. Snow is created when moisture falls from the skies in frozen form. If you believe in global warming, I say you’re just not paying attention. It’s the end of April and snow falling in Seattle is clearly a sign global warming is a farce. It’s just some term coined by alarmist scientists to freak out the sensitive types. You know, causing a commotion about nothing.
Honestly, what difference does it make? I’m only going to be on this planet another 60 years tops. Sure my daughter should be here much longer than me, but I hardly believe the planet will descend into chaos as many greenies would have you believe. Give the earth some time and she will heal. This current warming trend is not based on the ozone layer depleting or the cars we drive. These are cyclical changes which happen over thousands of years. Glaciers advance and retreat, advance and retreat. Even though Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa is nearly snowfree, this will have a negligbile impact on things we do here in the U.S. The tall mountain in Africa and stuff happening in North America hardly have any impact on the planet.
Polar bears won’t disappear either. I’ve heard some estimates from the World Wildlife Fund, WWF for short, predicting polar bear extinction within 60 or so years. I, for one, am not buying this guestimate of theirs. How on earth could the WWF calculate something like this? There’s plenty of ice for polar bears, they just need to be willing to move. I move from one part of town to another to make my work commute shorter, you’d think they could do the same. It’s not like finding food is terribly challenging either.
Earth Day, what’s it all about? Do we really need a special day set aside to cherish the planet we call home? Our planet is doing fine. It’s not a perfect planet, but it’s not broken either. I sat down with the planet to outline her quarterly goals. Funny, but Mother Nature never said anything about wiping out polar bears or global warming in the next three months or three years. You’d think if the environment really was in danger, as some alarmists would have you believe, the impending doom would have been mentioned in my one-on-one with Mother Nature. She said nothing of the sort. Keep on consuming in the free world!
