Global Warming for Dummies

With all the hysteria (what else? everything in the media is a crisis) about the "Polar Bears are going to become extinct in about 50 years because the Glaciers are melting..." uh, right. Let's see, Polar Bears have been around how long? and they have had to do what like any other species? ADAPT! and well, records indicate, and it's factual, that the climate has been warmer long ago than it is now.

And then, so at one time, Greenland was a tropical rainforest, they do have proof of that, but yet, given it's location, how far did the tropical area extend? After all, it didn't start at greenland right? So, that means that Polar Bears didn't just catch the latest alien spaceship and land way up north when it got cold. So, I don't think we are really going to see Polar Bears go extinct anytime soon. Polar Bears adapt to their situation like many species on earth do and I am sure they will migrate to another place to live. Who says that Polar Bears have to live at the North Pole anyway? I mean, they have them in Zoo's in the lower climes and they are surviving quite nicely thank you. Chances are they probably get a little tired of Ice and Snow anyway, and nasty Inuit indians chasing them around trying to lop off their heads and fur to dress up the ole' igloo floor. I mean really, are all you that believe this tripe going to be happy to know that you're doing nothing more than scaring children?

So I was tooling around the net and found this from a year ago. It's called "Global Warming for Dummies" and I think should be required reading for all the chicken littles out there.

This is from a site called Committees of Correspondence

Global Warming For Dummies
Topic: Global Warming

The other day I was listening to one of the more rabid global disaster warming advocates.

He was almost foaming at the mouth about the impending total destruction of the world's forests for one thing.

I started thinking about the whole issue and for the Life of me the Logic escapes me.

Someone help me out here and point just exactly what I am missing?

I will try a little thought debate,

You look upset.

Upset? Of course I am upset! We are facing a GLOBAL CATASTROPHE!

That sounds serious. What's happening?

The Trees, the Forests are facing TOTAL DESTRUCTION!

Really? How is that going to happen?

Global WARMING! Where have you been?

I see, Global Warming is going to destroy the World's Forests?


How? What makes Global Warming?

Carbon Dioxide! We are putting too much Carbon Dioxide into the Atmosphere!

I see. We are putting too much Carbon Dioxide into the Atmosphere, creating Global Warming which will Destroy the World's Forests?


How are we putting the Carbon Dioxide into the Atmosphere?

Fossil Fuels! We are burning Fossil Fuels!

OK, We are burning Fossil Fuels, which puts more Carbon Dioxide into the Atmosphere, causing Global Warming, which will Destroy the World's Forests?


Where did the Fossil Fuels come from?

You Moron! They are the remains of plants from hundreds of millions of years ago!

Wow, the Coal and Oil deposits are immense where did all the plants come from?

You IDIOT it took Millions of Years for the Fossil Fuel Beds to be laid down!

OK where did the Carbon in the Fossil Fuels come from?

From the AIR you IGNORAMUS!

I see, now if I have every thing correct,

Hundreds of Millions of Years ago, for Hundreds of Millions of Years, plants took Carbon Dioxide from the Atmosphere, locking the Carbon away in the ground into what would become Fossil Fuels, which we are now burning, putting the Carbon Dioxide BACK into the Atmosphere, causing Global Warming, which is going to Destroy the World's Forests?

Yes Dummy do you understand the Danger NOW?

Not really, I am trying to figure out why all that Carbon Dioxide, didn't destroy the World's Forests all those Millions of Years ago BEFORE the Carbon got locked in the ground in Fossil Fuels.


Somehow I thought you would say that.

Waring do NOT try this at home, this was only a thought experiment, Global Warming Advocates in the Wild have been known to become Violent when their Illusions are challenged!
