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.
