If global warming ends up being a global joke, it will not be because of the “deniers”, it will be because of idiotic fearmongering by the likes of Ted Turner, who said this on The Charlie Rose Show:
“Not doing (something drastic about global warming) will be catastrophic. We’ll be 8 degrees hottest in ten, not ten but 30 or 40 years and basically none of the crops will grow. Most of the people will have died and the rest of us will be cannibals.”
What a hoot—Apocalypse NOW!
Al Gore recently announced he will spend 300 million dollars for an advocacy and awareness campaign for global warming, but as they say, you gotta spend money to make money and Gore stands to make billions by fearmongering the global warming issue.
I’m not a “global warming denier” and I do most of what global warming hysterics suggest, mostly because it saves money. I’ll take fearmongers like Gore seriously when they actually LIVE the way the demand the rest of us live. Gore fails the test; he lives his own life like global warming is not a big deal, and I believe deeds over words—especially from politicians and activists.
Global warming is a historic fact—-it is only recently that people like Al Gore have whipped up fear in order to profit from a natural event.
For proof there was hysteria in the land concerning global warming even before Al Gore was born, check out this nifty blog post that reproduces an article in the Washington Post—dated 1922! The headline screams “Arctic Ocean Getting
Warm; Seals Vanish and Icebergs Melt”.
Everything old is new again—including cannibalism!
