Just thought I'd share a pondering with you...
A source tells me that the Icelandic volcano eruption that has been spewing ash and inconvenience all over Europe lately has negated every single
effort we have made over the last half a decade to control the dreaded CO2 emissions that are CHOKING OUR PLANET and DESTROYING MOTHER EARTH and
causing Al Gore to go all red in the face.
Can this be? Years of effort to recycle everything and waste nothing - and all we get is the short end of the enviro-stick?
I need another source on this story. Who could believe a volcano, one of Mother Nature’s special wonders, would turn on us like this? After all,
volcanoes are part of nature, and nature is always natural, and everything natural is good. I’m guessing that volcano carbon is the GOOD carbon, and
stuff like cow flatulence is the BAD carbon! But wait, cows are part of nature, too, so...
Ok, maybe volcanoes and cow flatulence are the GOOD carbon, and bike riding on the interstate instead of driving is bad, and... no, wait, bike riding
is GOOD... So it's volcanoes and cow flatulence and bike riding that are good, and flying around on airplanes that is bad.
...Unless you fly around on airplanes going to climate change conferences where you listen to speeches about how to protect the world from people who
fly around on airplanes for other reasons - selfish reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with SAVING THE PLANET.
Now we're getting somewhere. So volcanoes and cow flatulence and bike riding and flying for the RIGHT REASONS are good. Everything else is bad.
...Except for hurricanes and tornadoes and earthquakes and tsunamis, which can’t be bad because they are also natural - just more fine examples of
Mother Nature’s wondrous bounty of delightful surprises.
So volcanoes and hurricanes and tornadoes and earthquakes and tsunamis and cow flatulence and bike riding and flying for the RIGHT REASONS are
...Unless the volcanoes and hurricanes and tornadoes and earthquakes and tsunamis are somehow caused by global warming, which has absolutely nothing
to do with nature, and everything to do with humans driving around in SUVs.
So volcanoes and hurricanes and tornadoes and earthquakes and tsunamis and cow flatulence and bike riding and flying for the RIGHT REASONS are good,
UNLESS some of those things are caused by global warming, which is all our fault and not a part of nature at all.
Everything else is bad, and makes more of the bad carbon, which kills plants and... but wait... plants live on carbon, and turn the planet green, and
green is natural and therefore good (besides being everybody’s favorite color), and so carbon must be...
Ok, how about this: maybe the GOOD carbon makes the plants grow, and the cows eat the plants and emit the good flatulence, and then the right-thinking
people eat the cows, which gives them the strength to ride their bicycles on the interstate and fly around on airplanes saving the world from other
people who don't eat cows or ride bicycles...
This is very confusing.
