Deny and Die

July 27, 2012

When you hear anyone blabber that climate change is a myth, give them a dope-slap. Stupid people like that need to be shocked into reality. Conservative pundit George Will said last week, “It’s just summer… get over it!” This is no ordinary summer, historically speaking. America is hot… real hot… damned hot… and dry as a bone in most places. Our food crops are withering in the fields. Greenland’s ice sheet totally melted away within four days last week. And where it’s not dry, floods are drowning everything, including people.

We’re on the way to a world population of 8-billion humans, while at the same time our ability to produce food for the current population is becoming severely hampered by climate change. Humans need protein. We can’t get much from seafood anymore because we’ve over-fished and polluted the oceans. We can’t get it from livestock animals because we can no longer produce the grasses and grains to feed them. We are even losing our sources of vegetable protein. Soy, corn and wheat harvests have been devastated by heat and drought.

If you notice, the deniers of climate change and global warming are generally the ones who stand to gain something by continuing to burn fossil fuels. They are the oil companies, coal companies, gas frackers, etc., and the republicans who are in the pockets of these companies. They are also the very young people who haven’t experienced a “normal” climate. They are the wealthy people who go from their air-conditioned houses to their air-conditioned cars to their air-conditioned workplaces – never feeling the reality. They are the republican voters who blindly swallow all the lies that their party feeds them.

The scientists’ predictions are coming true. This is what global warming looks like, and it’s only going to get worse in the future. So, what can we do about it? Nothing, unless everyone admits that climate change is a reality and that humans are making it worse. No one alive today will ever experience what we used to consider a “normal” climate in their lifetime. If we started tackling the problem today, it would take hundreds, if not thousands of years to reverse the current trend. All life forms on Earth – including humans – will be forced to adjust, adapt and even undergo genetic mutations in order to survive the ever-increasing heat. There is a point where the planet will become too hot to sustain any life as we know it but, for now, this heat is killing me.

    Unfortunately for you History does not agree with what you are saying 1934 was the hotter than this year in America and as for your assertion that Greenland melted all away in just four days I would suggest you take another look at Greenland where you will see that the island is still covered with Ice.

    If you had actually read a little bit about what happened in Greenland you would have seen that this phenomenon what to days scientists saw happens every 150 years and is well recorded, although I rather suspect that you already know this and chose not to publish the true facts.

    I also notice like all true Alarmists who I now call Warmegedinists and Doomotoligists you bring to the table how much is gained by by burning fossil fuel presumably you mean lobbyists for the oil company’s. If so may I remind you how much money has been given to green issues namely $67 billion. The piddling small sums given to oil company’s pale into comparison.

    I’m with you, ready to move to a colder climate. I hate the heat. At this age I now know that I can do cold better than heat.
