If you've been reading along, you probably know I don't talk much about current events. I try very hard not to get involved in the debates that are being waged across the net. (In fact, I refuse to debate, so I don't bother to offer my opinions here.) This place is for writing, not politics.
But something happened this weekend that made me so incredibly nauseous, and so unbelievably pissed, it was hard to not say anything. I was so good. I didn't say a word. But then this morning, I read a blog about how today is the day all good bloggers are supposed to talk about things they're doing to improve the environment, and well... I lost it.
Al Gore won a Nobel Prize. Want to improve the environment? Use Al's book as fertilizer. That's about all it's good for. The Brits know it, so why are so many Americans gullible enough to believe his crap is anything more than propaganda (and not even believable propaganda at that).
All I can say is thank goodness for the guys at Junk Science - all the junk that's fit to debunk - who've been against this BS from the beginning.
So, you'll forgive me if I don't jump on the environmentalist bandwagon today. Today, do what I do on Earth Day (another hippy-dippy day designed solely to make humans feel guilty for being human) and waste some paper. The paper forests of Northern Michigan will thank you for it. (I've been through them, and they are things of infinite beauty. Millions of trees growing quickly to give me something to write on. To be harvested and replanted in a glorious cycle of productive achievement... But I digress.)
I'll just leave you with one final thought:
