Re: On Global Warming.
As a great man, George Carlin I believe it was, once said, the earth is accepted by scientists at 4.5 billion years old, these same scientists believe humans have been around for only 100,000 years and modern industrial practice has only been around for 200 years. How arrogant are we to think that in 200 years we have been able to destroy a planet that has existed so long and has survived repeated asteroid and comet impacts causing explosions too large to comprehend, global winter in the aftermath, ice-ages, floods and forest fires to make the ones we complain about today seem inconsequential. We are not that powerful, nor destructive. Global warming is fear-mongering of the worst kind, and another attempt to control us and ween more money from taxpayers. If we're afraid of our planet dying we're more tham happy to pay two dollars in tax on each gallon of gas as long as the money is used for global warming research. Total BS.

If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government --and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws. -- Edward Abbey in Abbey's Road, p.39 (Plume, 1979)
