Turn Off Your Lights for the Earth
My son sent me a ridiculous email urging everyone in the world to turn off all our lights for one hour at 8:30 pm on Saturday, March 28th, to show our support for fighting global warming and to save the earth. This whole concept makes me upset. I went to the website he referred me to. Here is what I wrote to them:
What global warming? What do lights have to do with it? If we really want to stop global warming, we need to learn how to change the sun's solar flares and how to change the amount of water in our atmosphere! Those are the two largest contributors to global warming. Carbon dioxide, other gases and particulates in the atmosphere only account for about 4% of the effects on global temperature. Of those, mankind is only responsible for and can only realistically effect about 2% (that's 2% of 4%). So no matter what we try to do, or how much money we want to waste trying, we can realistically have virtually zero effect on the earth's global temperatures! Too many groups are just using (abusing) the global warming myth as a way to extort money from everyone and to impose their own political views and methods on others. Stop the madness! Refuse to play along! Refuse to be duped by these self-serving leeches!
Oh -- and WHO SAYS leaving lights ON is a VOTE FOR global warming!??
What I do with my lights is not a vote for or against anything or anyone. It makes as much sense as saying if we don't all hold our breaths for two minutes at 8:30 on Saturday evening, we are voting FOR Global Warming! or we should all hold in our bowel movements for one day. BS!!! They are not related, not connected, and I refuse to let someone else dictate my behavior based upon their erroneous misconceptions and self-righteous false causes.
Try this one: If you don't turn counterclockwise fifteen times at 12:00 midnight on April 30th then you are voting against changing the earth's magnetic field, which we all know IS MOVING! and if we continue to allow it TO MOVE, it will affect ALL OUR COMPASSES, the flight paths of migrating birds, the flow of winds around the globe, and the incidents of hurricanes, tornados, cyclones, El Nino, desert storms, and mosquito outbreaks in Sierra Leon! Oh my, oh my, oh my! What are we going to do about this? We must stop the earth's magnetic field from shifting out of place!!
Still sane and level-headed
