Global Warming is a serious issue. There are strong opinions on both sides. So depending on which side of the debate you support, you will either find this offensive or maybe like me full of sarcastic humor. I am referring to an editorial opinion piece from yesterdays Las Vegas Review-Journal. Vin Suprynowicz is assistant editorial page editor of said Newspaper and has penned a piece of opinion titled The real cure for global warming.
Mr. Suprynowicz is obviously in the correct group of us who believe If some of the Global Warming Alarmists (i.e. Al Gore) would just shut up we could continue about our business a little happier. Not so much because we are fat or dumb but we are happy with the knowledge, and supported by ever growing Scientific Facts, that Global Warming is a Natural Event.
“The planet is currently warming at a rate of perhaps one degree a century, part of an ongoing cycle of global warming and cooling which (ice cores and other fossil records tell us) has been ongoing for millions of years.”
Mr. Suprynowicz continues to make the point that the Global Warming hysteria will be remembered
“…as one of those episodes of “the madness of crowds” which saw bands of flagellants wandering Europe urging folks to finish work on those cathedrals real soon because the world was going to come to an end at the millennium, in 1,000 A.D., and the minor panic of Oct. 30, 1938, when numerous radio listeners were taken in by the realistic Orson Welles broadcast of “The War of the Worlds.”
There follows some reaction to a previous editorial supporting a construction project to bring new clean water to Las Vegas. Finally we come to the solution to the Global Warming Issue.
“Clean nuclear and natural-gas-fired power plants must be shut down and immediately replaced with coal plants burning the softest, dirtiest coal — peat would be better — that can be found. “Smog inspections” will take on a new meaning as our cars will be checked regularly to make sure each is pouring out the densest possible cloud of carbon particulates and lifesaving black soot.”
Or we could create a really big volcanoe.
