7 Degrees Hotter? Meh, That's Nothin'.

According to Price-Waterhouse Accounting and nearly all climatologists, the earth's temperature will rise 7 degrees by the end of the century if we don't start cutting carbon emissions.

Now, you may say, "who gives a shit, I'll be dead by then." How about your family? Your grandchildren, your great grandchildren, et al? Don't they mean anything? The anti-science people (a phrase I never thought I'd ever have to type or utter) are saying, "meh, what's 7 degrees?" Well, think of it this way, what if your internal temp was 105 instead of 98.6. Would you be ok with that? Not for very long. Maybe a couple of days if you were in good health prior to that. 

The Fossil Fool Industry...oh, I'm sorry, Fossil FUEL Industry would have you believe that 7 degrees is nothin'. No problem, they say. Why would they give a shit....they're in their lofty, ivory towers spending your money.

The Earth's temperature rising 7 degrees would create a scene out of Spielberg's "Artificial Intelligence" movie. 

All the polar ice caps would have melted, and as a result, no reflectivity of the sun's rays would contribute to increased heat, and eventually, due to the increased carbon, a greenhouse effect becomes pronounced to such a degree (pun intended), that Earth would become much like Venus, where the temp on a good day is enough to MELT LEAD. 

Think about that as you drive that big ol' SUV down 2 blocks to get your tall soy caramel machiato latte with no foam and extra extra (sweet and low).

Be cool (ha!), be nobody's FUEL FOOL, and don't dismiss the bliss.
