"Maybe global warming won't be so bad after all," says me. "Like maybe Bangladesh'll like bein underwater. If you think about it havin your country flooded is kinda like spendin every day at the beach!"
"Maybe it's a glass-half-full kinda thing," says Giblets. "Like scientists are always going on about how lots of people are gonna die from famine and disease. But you know what you never hear them talk about? How most of those people are complete strangers who probably suck."
"Maybe we'll just haveta make a coupla lifestyle adjustments," says me. "In the wintertime, put on an extra sweater. In the summer, take off your skin and breathe through a spare atmosphere."
"All we really need is some kind of simple technological solution," says Giblets, "like a garbage-powered weather machine or a synthetic source of God."
"See, that's a great idea!" says me. "You should get to work on that."
"Nah, Giblets is more of an 'idea man'," says Giblets pourin a tall frosty mug a coal. "Now that the concept's out there Giblets figures someone else'll work out the details."
"What an exciting time for science!" says me.

Giblets should try drinking some of the fresh, cool Arctic methane which has been liberated by technology and is now bubbling up from soggy ground that until recently was permafrost.

All the natural gas we could ever want! Except that it's drifting up into the stratosphere, on its way to destroying our atmosphere.

Oh well.
Ralph forgets that we'll be breathing our spare atmosphere. No worries!

PS: Any dancing in the streets today/tonight will be from what was once termed 'irrational exuberance.' The witch ain't dead yet, so it's a little early for the ding dong. Remains to be seen exactly what the new witch will be like, don't it?

Much easier to make a time machine that goes back and saves Jimmy Carter and elects him for another term and during that time, the solar energy car is discovered and the planet is saved.

If everyone chips in, we can make the time machine. I have a roll of wax paper, some tape, and paperclips. What do you have?

Dr. James Dobson invented a synthetic source of God. Or maybe it's highly-processed right-polarized real God. He's even got a huge magnifying lens to focus its God-rays, but good luck getting him to focus it on anything but his family.

I really appreciate this warming is very serious topic.
The alarmists would have us believe that the sun will go down, and it will get dark. Well, look out your window, folks. Guess what? It's light! L-I-G-H-T! The whole "global darkening" theory is pathetically easy to disprove.
nice post
