A Snark About Man-Made Global Warming

I do not believe that man is causing global warming as Nobel Peace Prize Winner Al "The Goracle" Gore and his cohorts claim.

If I believe that, say, my overspending causes negative bank balances, then I do what is necessary to control myself and make sure my spending is less than what I deposit into the bank.


But there are way too many people who are now making their livings now off of convincing others that man is causing global warming. They preach the dangers of man-made global warming and that we must all take certain steps to avoid our doom, yet none of those global warming alarmists live by those same rules they ask us mere mortals to live by.

If they TRULY believed in what they say about man-made global warming, they'd show it by the way they live, but they don't.

Check out this article, titled: Hot Air Emitted by Climate Summit Equals 20,000 Cars

I won't even bother to quote some of the article because the title of it alone should tell you most of what you need to know.

But they do say in the article that the representatives from the various countries headed to this climate conference in Indonesia have pledged to plant trees and/or to buy carbon offsets to make up for their huge carbon footprints in flying to Indonesia and back.

Yeah, right.

Planting trees is always cool in my book, but if you actually believe that there is such a thing as a carbon offset that does anything at all to benefit anyone but people like Al "The Goracle" Gore who just happens to co-own a firm where suckers can soothe their aching souls by buying carbon offsets from them, you're pretty dumb.

Typical "do as I say, not as I do" hiposcrisy from the Church of Global Warming.

By the way, I'm sure the folks in North Dakota, Maine, and Chicago are wondering when this whole global warming thing is going to hit them like the record snows they had this week.

(Today's Snark About Man-Made Global Warming was brought to you by the letters J, A, and M, and by the number 3.141592653589793238462643383, Pi to 27 places. 'Cause Pi is cool and useful and stuff.)

I tell y'all what, proof of the silliness of this whole thing drops right in my lap before I can even post the above post.

Eco-friendly kangaroo farts could help global warming

Is that funny or what?

Will the cow farts destroy the earth like the U.N. says, or will civilization be snatched from the jaws of the apocalypse by kangaroo farts?

Only time will tell.

I try to do my best to remember some of the choice phrases from "the prophets" of these days so that the full irony will be all the sweeter 20-30 years from now when they sound just as dumb as the ice-agers did 30 years ago.

Oh, God was smiling down on you! How sweet for that to fall right in your lap when you were writing that post!
I can't think of much that is more hilarious than kangaroo farts in cow's!

You always make me think...and laugh! That, my friend, is a wonderful combination!

This was great!

Oh, don't drag Maine into it. We also had record highs this past Summer and Autumn. In fact, our leaf-turning season was extremely and unnaturally short and late this year due to the heat.

This early Winter was predicted however so no one should be surprised.

It was a very intersting article. Thanks. I don't think all those trees in Indonesia will stop the earthquakes, however.
