Go green, global warming, Al Gore are jokes, hoaxes

By Alex Kosters

From Cardinal Points, September 26, 2008

Did you know that about 97 percent of the C02 emitted into the air is created naturally? It comes mainly from decaying plants, forest fires, and volcanoes. We ought to ban dying plants and volcanoes, and Smokey The Bear needs to go to jail. Roughly 3 percent of it is caused by humans.

How about the fact that our convenient energy-saving bulbs contain mercury? That makes me feel great. It seems that a lot of people are capitalizing on our guilt.

When you print something in the computer lab or the library, the supposed “print limit” is there to make you feel guilty so you’ll print less. There’s no real print limit. Click on the details button and you’ll be taken to a page showing how many trees you’ve killed, how much C02 you’ve created, and how much energy you’ve used. But don’t fear, there are many places to put your money to ease your guilt about this. You can buy made-up things called carbon credits, or you can wait until there’s a carbon tax implemented.

Do you feel terrible about deforestation? Well the good news is we’ve been gaining forestland since 1985. How about some more fun facts? There is no scientific mechanism out there proving C02 causes global warming. Furthermore, “global warming,” as we understand it, hasn’t been proven to exist. Even if it did exist, we would not know what to do to fix it, if we could even fix it at all.
