Today marks the day that the UN Climate Change Conference convenes in wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen…That’s in Denmark.
Delegates from nearly every country will be attending this summit over the course of the next two weeks.
Can you tell that I am bored as I type this? Well if you can’t, let me tellz ya…
My eyes are vacant and crossing and my head is nearly resting on my keyboard. And no…I haven’t had any Wild Irish Rose to drink either.
Climate Change/Global Warming/It’s Good to be Green is an issue/topic/religion that I just cannot get a hard-on about. It bores me to tears, and I find people on both sides of the issue to be more than irritating.
The Greeniks wail and gnash their teeth because the world is going to end tomorrow if we don’t retard the filth and man made heat we are generating.
Those on the other end of this climatological spectrum who like Pangloss utter, “This is the best of all possible worlds!!”, have their heads in the sand.
Over millions of years, this planet has and will continue to undergo climate change. How much is man made and how much is a natural, cyclical occurrence, no one knows.
And…If someone says they know, they’re lying
Certainly the human race has had an effect on the climate. How can a group of people go from simple hunting and gathering to producing mega factories that belch ungodly pollutants out of their smokestacks and not expect it to have an effect?
On the other hand…in the grand scheme of Earth’s history, we haven’t been belching into the atmosphere all that long.
In order to determine how much change in our climate is natural and how much is man made can only be determined if we can find a climatologist who is a million years old. I don’t think one exists. Sure, Larry King is a million years old, but he isn’t a climatologist.
I do have a theory on the issue at hand however…
I think it is both ironic and appropriate that this Climate Change Summit is taking place in Denmark.
If global warming due to human causes is a reality, the answer as to why lies in Denmark, and here it is…
That’s right Matt-Man’s favorite Danish dish, Heidi Zadeh. She can pop the top off of any thermometer just by looking at it. Heidi Zadeh, ladies and gentlemen…the cause of global warming.
With that problem solved, I want to give a big wet kiss and birthday shout out to my buddy Dianne.
Happy Birthday, Dianne. Think of me when you bite into that cake today.
