Carbon Credits To Become The New Global Currency
Sometimes you come across a story where you have to read it a few times to assess its worth.
And sometimes you simply have to go, "Okay, sure, whatever" and let readers like your good self decide whether the claims of the story are Fact, Opinion or Fantasy.
Or a mishmash of all three.
Or none of the above.
From the Melbourne Age :
Up until now the obesity crisis and the global warming crisis have been regarded as two separate crises. However, irrefutable scientific evidence has recently emerged showing that the two crises are, in fact, inextricably linked.Ronald McDonald wants to drown South Pacific islanders?
The devastating fallout from this shattering revelation is clear and unavoidable - we shall all have to get our tongues around the correct pronunciation of the word "crises".
The cycle begins with the excessive ingestion of fast foods such as pies, hamburgers, kebabs, chips, potato cakes, maybe a piece of flake, some dim sims and, sure, a couple of schnitzels and throw in a spring roll, why not? And salt on that please.
The person consumes the food and gets bigger. Their bloated bodies accelerate the emission of gases during digestion. This, in turn, contributes to the greenhouse effect.
And because it is too much effort to walk, their increased use of cars and buses and taxies to get from one fast food franchise to the next adds to the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
The chief repercussion of the greenhouse effect is bad weather, which means more hurricanes, which means more rain, which means more grass, which is what cows like to eat.
This results in the well-documented growth of both the size and population of cows, which leads to lower beef prices, which allows the manufacturers of fast food to buy more cattle to make more hamburgers, which naturally brings the price down, which allows people to buy more hamburgers and thus eat more hamburgers, and thus produce more greenhouses gases...
The story is, of course, not quite as serious as the excerpt might lead you to believe, though it does prove when it comes to global warming you sure can have some fun making circular arguments.
The piece finishes up with the radical suggestion, probably stolen....sorry inspired by the rantings...sorry, writings, of Global Warming Celebrationist, Tim Blair :
...rather than trying to combat the effects of global warming, why not put the pedal to the metal, push this baby as far as it can go and just see where it takes us?Go Here For The Full Story
SHOCK : John Howard has watched Al Gore's global warming manifesto 'An Inconvenient Truth'.
His short review?
"My life is till taking the same course, and I don't think the Earth moved...It was spiced with ritualistic attacks on the Bush administration that detracted from its objectivity."The only world leader who has been slower than John Howard to realise the massive amounts of money to be made from joining a worldwide carbon trading system is US President George W. Bush.
Carbon trading will soon become the first undeclared, but official, world currency. And the paranoidians thought the Euro, or the Amero, would replace the American dollar.
Wrong. Welcome to the age of the 'Warmo'.
Am I reading that mini-review wrong or does John Howard view "ritualistic attacks" on President Bush as spicey?
So Howard didn't like Al Gore's slide show.
Not enough focus on the polar bears who aren't drowning, apparently.
