I love this cartoon. Not because I think the world is going to fry (Change but not burn) but because it speaks to the greater problem in the Republican party. In their haste to keep the Religious Right in their camp they have spouted and supported all sorts of pseudo-science that the Neo-Christians beleive.
Any one remember Aiken talking about how women couldn’t get pregnant if it really was rape.
I applaud the guy who says – I don’t know enough about this subject and I’m trying to learn mre.I applaud the guy who says – I’ve studied this subject and based on the data I have at my disposal I don’t agree with the scientists.I have nothing but disdain for the group that brags about their ignorance.
For whatever reason the science community has made this global warming issue a matter of religion. If you don’t believe that the current rise in temperatures is a long term trend that will destroy the world then you are an anti-science heretic. But too many of them have stepped into politics and are using this issue as a way to call for whatever social cause they favor.1) The Ecologists want us to accept it as gospel so they can get more favorable treatment when they argue for greater regulations and less property rights protections.2) The Communists/Socialists want us to accept it as gospel so they can argue for more economic programs that take from one group and give to another.3) The Religious groups want us to reject it because a loving God would never allow this to happen (Some even reject the second law of Thermodynamics for the same reason).
We came out of a little ice-age in the 1800’s and early 1900s. It isn’t any wonder that the trends show that the world is warming. But that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
If you are like me in the midwest it means more snow but I know how to operate a shovel and a snowblower.If you live in Florida or Louisiana it means you better learn how to build better levies and dykes.We have not had more or fiercer storms then in the past like the Scientists predicted but if we do – We actually have the technology to build better stronger buildings to deal with the effects of weather.
We are an incredibly adaptable species. We can and will survive rising seas if the trend continues. And Mother nature is much more fair-minded then the Progressives who use every issue like this as an excuse to rob me of my rights and my wealth.
