How to Do Your Part to Fight Global Warming
I've been reading a lot on Global Warming, so I'm pretty much of an expert on the subject now, especially having studied a lot of science and stuff in school. For instance, I've taken classes in Natural Science, Social Science, Political Science - you name it; I've probably had a science class about it. So when it comes to science, I think it's fair to say I pretty much run with the best, and if you care to read much of the literature out there, you'll find that most of my peers are pretty much in agreement with my conclusions. So I've got consensus going for me, which is nice.
So in regard to Global Warming, which only a fool doesn't believe in (that's been pretty much established) there's a lot of scientific input out there... a lot of stuff to consider... But one main point stands out:
It's clear from all the evidence presented that any current temperature anomalies or trends are obviously created by humans and their interaction with the environment. Yep. It's all our fault, and we are the only ones who can fix this.
We must choose paper, not plastic. Keep your tires inflated! -even though they're made out of rubber, which is like plastic, only different. Drive an electric car, because the gas turbines used to generate the electricity don't need fish ladders, which don't work anyway, because everyone knows that every dam has a zillion fish in front of it just trying to get upstream. We must notch the dams so the fish can get through -those zillions of them who've been waiting for the notch. When using your [electric] curling iron, don't use hair spray (you know... CFC's). Switch from R12 to R134, or whatever the latest R is, because, though it's pretty much chemically equivalent, it's legislatively less harmful.
We must all do our part to pitch in and cool the planet. Use an electric snow blower to clear your driveway, because a gas-powered one emits carbon. God knows we have enough carbon already! It's the most abundant element on the planet. Last thing we need is more carbon. That stuff's bad. Stop barbecuing meat because vegetables take less pesticides than cows do. And cows poop, which makes methane -also bad. Plus, barbecuing generates carbon too, so...
What we need, apparently, is an increase in volcanic activity. Volcanoes belch out megatons of carbon - much of it in reactive forms - but apparently volcanic carbon doesn't have the same deleterious effect that human-generated carbon does. Volcanic carbon: good. Human carbon: bad. We must all keep this in mind. Do what you can to encourage volcanic activity.
And remember, if someone offers you a Halon fire extinguisher... Just say NO. In fact, any truly loyal global citizen will say, "Heck, NO!" and let it burn.
