Hot, Hotter, Hottest

No, I am not talking about babes, I am talking about "Global Warming", you know that dreaded, scary thing that Al Gore wants us all to be "oh so worried" about. You know those environmentalists -- always gotta have some "imminent disaster" to get the suckers to send them money! After all, our favorite Congressman has shown that it is all a scam, this "environmentalism" is really big business, just so Jay Hair and his cronies can make a couple of hundred thousand a year. Why that's almost as much as Pombo pays Annette, and all those enviro guys do is sit around thinking of something else to scare us all with. At least Annette puts stamps on envelopes and answers the phone once in a while.

No, anyone with a brain can see that 99.99% of the scientists are wrong on this one. That is the problem with those secular humanist enviro liberal scientific eggheads, they are too darn intellectual for their own good. See, there's facts, lies, and statistics, like Mark Twain said, which can confuse those smart people, especially when the big business Sierra Club, Inc., wants to raise some cash so they all can go on an all-expense paid trip to Antarctica (where, if you read my last post, they might just run into Jerry McNerney on his quest for the South Pole). While down there, they can take pictures of the ice melting and send them home, saying sending us more money, else more of this ice is gonna melt and then flood your expensive seaside home.

What they don't know is that ice has been melting for the last 10,000 years!. Hello? Like, the Ice Age ended a long time ago and the ice has been melting ever since. All you have to do is put some ice in your beer -- oh, excuse me, your fancy Napa zinfandel -- and you can see that ice is melting at the same rate it has for thousand of years! It is a natural phenomenon, something all you eco-freaks should like. Nature -- that’s whose melting the ice, not us humans, and I don't care how much Al Gore talks about CO2 and has that funny chart that looks like NASDAQ before it crashed in 2000 (which, by the way, was when your buddy Bill Clinton was still sitting in the Oval Office, zipping up his pants).

We here in the good ol' US of A burn 20 million barrels of oil a day. Someone's got to do it. If not us, who? The Chinese? Listen, "Love it or leave it", or as I prefer, "Love it or shove it". Go ride a mule if you don't like me driving my SUV. So, yeah, 20 million barrels a day, makes 7.3 billion per year. That is 306.6 billion gallons of crude per year. Why in world would you think THAT has any effect on the climate? Sure, it produces CO2, but so do you. You just breathed, didn't you? Well, there goes some CO2. Are you gonna blame yourself for global warming now? Of course not. So why are you blaming all those good, honest, hard-working Americans who just want to get to work and go to the mall and buy stuff -- in safety, in their SUVs. Didn't you ever hear "the world has changed" after 9-11? The terrorists are swarming all around, and you want me to drive a hybrid Civic because of some pictures of ice melting in Antarctica?

I am with someone who can represent our interests in burning even more oil -- Richard Pombo. Heck, this guy does not even mention "Global Warming", or "Al Gore", or even "environment" on any of his web sites. I wish he would actually deny the whole thing, like he did in 2002. But at least he ignores it entirely. Pombo has not given in to the "big business" secular humanists enviro liberals. He is sticking with the real Big Guys, companies like the $100 billion profit-making machine called Exxon, where they give out $162 million retirement packages and fund global warming skeptics. Now, if Pombo could only get Annette in on some of that cash, he would be all set, global warming or no global warming!


Here are two contrasting sites to check out:

That is right. The one time that I talked to Brian Kennedy, Resources Committee Pomboganda Spokesman, he said that "there is not enough scientific evidence on which to base any policy." Of course, even by saying that, he is saying that they will based their policy on something other than the best scientific evidence.

I refer all of you to the June 9 program, Panorama, on BBC. The subject was a
Climate chaos: Bush's climate of fear.

You can watch the entire thing, 40.0 min, or take a short view of a couple of key quotes from the Blue State site: 4.33 min. The key element here is the Republican Pollster extrordinaire, Frank Lunz, is saything that the issue is closed. Gore is right. It is real and we are doing it to ourselves. Lunz, you may rembmer, is the pollster who told the Republicans to challenge the science, to find "climate change doubters" and to feature them in their publicity. It worked. The public is fooled, just as they were fooled on Iraq. This is what happens when you decide to answer before asking the question or looking for the truth.

If there is a single issue where the Republican leadership is dead wrong, it is on the enviornment. Every one who calls themself an environmentalist should be making this a public issue with the same passion that most "progressives" are making the raq War an issue.

VPO, I don't know if it was intentional, but I love the fact that you stole the headline for your post from the obscure 80's movie "Action Jackson." Nice!

The "Hot, Hotter, Hottest" was the tagline from the movie's villian car company. Carl Weathers was the star and Craig T. Nelson played the villian. The movie also featured a very young Sharon Stone.

You never how readers of this blot will interpret things, but my post was meant as "satire", as in "biting wit, irony, or sarcasm used to expose vice or folly" (FYI -- in this case, it is "folly").

Now enough of the emails saying I've gone over to the other side. Can't anyone take a joke?

Just wait until my post on how much I love the Iraq War. Here's a working title:
