An Inconvenient Arrogance

Human beings and “man-made” carbon dioxide emissions (including breathing) make up about 4% of the total carbon dioxide emissions on Earth. You can check my stats if you feel the need.

Assuming that the United States is responsible for 25% of that, then if the United States stopped manufacturing everything, and all stopped breathing tomorrow, the Earth would have about 1% less carbon dioxide emitted each year.

Did you know that only about 10% of the polar ice caps are melting, and the other 90% are actually getting bigger? You don’t hear that on the news, and you certainly don’t hear that from Al Gore, the biggest propagandist since Hitler.

I’m quite sure I’ve said on here before that if we mess up the Earth, the Earth will kill us… I have a lot more faith in our ecosystem than to think we could actually kill it. But the fact of the matter is, all this idioted talk about being “carbon neutral” and saving the Earth are must moronic. Today on talk radio, a stat was introduced that the Kyoto Accord, supposedly a huge international initiative to save the environment… well, it barely makes a dent in our 4%.

We in the United States who have trouble believing that a smokestack on a power plant is going to destroy the Earth are looked upon with disdain by the “enlightened” Europeans. However, the scientific community is sharply divided on whether global warming is even actually happening. A bunch of scientists say it is, and a bunch of scientists say it’s just a weather cycle (notably, the head of meteorology at MIT), and the Earth has been having cycles for thousands of years.

I’m not saying we should pollute and be idiots without any thought of future generations. I’m a an advocate for promoting alternative fuels… but 99% of my desire to have a hydrogen car is the desire to be Middle East Neutral… not to be carbon neutral.

Al Gore says we should all be carbon neutral. So if we drive a pickup truck, we should plant trees and change our lightbulbs to make up the difference. Al Gore has a 20 bedroom mansion with an indoor heated pool. Al Gore flies to every event in a private jet. Al Gore, when asked how he could talk about being carbon neutral said, “Well, I changed all my light bulbs.”

To think we can destroy or save the environment with our relatively puny influence is one of the most arrogant things I can even fathom. Al Gore preaching about being carbon neutral when he’s consuming 100 times the fossil energy of the average American, that’s just plain hypocrisy.

Perhaps people will take note of his hypocrisy and he’ll end up ruining the efforts of ecojihadists everywhere. How inconvenient.

    Yeah, those Europeans might want to consider quitting smoking before they point their nicotine-yellowed finger over here.

    Yeah, how about a post about Nancy Pelosi and her environmental speeches she refused to travel to in a puny little 737, cause it was the same size as the previous Republican’s plane. Oh, no, she needs the largest, fuel-guzzliest plane (tax) money can buy! She and Al should see if there’s a cure for hypocrosis…cause it seems to be spreading throughout the Party!

    Classic hypocrisy from our favorite eco-commies!

    I’m not an expert on Al’s politics or anything. but have you seen the size of his HEAD? It’s weird, and does not match the rest of his body. Never trust a man who’s head is disproportionate!

    And here I thought this blog would remain apolitical…just kidding 🙂

    Have you read the book “State of Fear” by Michael Crichton? It’s a novel but it debunks the most popular environmental myths and has the scientific backup to prove it.

    Read Fear by Michael Chrichton. It’s sci fi but heavily resouced about inventing stupid stories to make the public afraid of everything. Global Warming is one of the biggest lies and it isn’t true. He sides with the natural weather cycle. Scientists are paid to side with news and businesses.

    Oh yeah, State of Fear, like Cory says. I didn’t even read that comment – what a nice coincidence 🙂 and Crichton, not Chrichton like Cory said.

    So no one enjoyed Al Gore’s award-winning powerpoint show?

    Kind of funny how every generation has it’s own irrational fears. In the 70s people were afraid of over-population. Someday, years from now, our children will be looking back at this period in time and saying, “Wow, people were really stupid” much the same as we do with our parent’s history.

    Remember how the ozone layer hole was going to kill us all with radiation?

    I’m not dead yet…
