The Good News And The Bad News About Earth's Impending Destruction

It’s for the children. It’s for the earth. Who can argue with that?!

Do you want the bad news or the good news first?

I’ll give you the bad.

In 12 years, the earth is going to burn up and we’ll all die.

And it’s all your fault.

This is according to a report by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that was released on Monday. According to the report, if nothing is done, there will be an increase in temperatures, an increase in deadly weather, and an increase in Florida Georgia Line albums. Yes, it's that bad.

But now for the good news.

The United Nations is on the job!

This benevolent organization would like to roll back life as we know it to the time before the industrial revolution when there weren’t as many pesky carbon emitters. You know, things like cars and hospitals and air conditioned homes.

Sure, if our heroes at the United Nations get their way, more people will die. But that’s beside the point. Earth will live on! Of course, a few elites will get to keep enjoying life on earth by flying around on their jet planes they once used to warn us about the dangers of flying around on jet planes. And none of these elites will be asked to make the ultimate sacrifice and give up their lives in order to control the population for the good of the earth. That’s what the poor are for. And besides, we’ve got the better part of a decade to get our act together so that maybe we too can be included in the party that gets to keep enjoying life on earth.

And sure, the organization warning us that we’ve only got 12 years left here on earth is the same organization that was caught a few years back skewing numbers and politicizing science in order to push a green agenda. But that’s okay. It’s for the children. It’s for the earth. Who can argue with that?!

You may be asking yourself, “What can I do to buy us more time?”

Well, I hate to be so blunt but not a lot. It’s looking pretty hopeless and we’re not smart enough to do the science or the politicking required to save the earth. But there are a few simple steps that we can all take that just might give us an extra 30 or 40 minutes.

  1. Stop flying. Only politicians can fly. Their greenhouse gasses aren’t as harmful as ours.
  2. Get rid of your car. Get a bike made from old paper bags from the grocery store. Don’t ride it in the rain.
  3. No more grilling out. Recent scientific research has revealed that things that smell and taste good will give you cancer and also kill polar bears. If you must cook something, find a soy cube and just let it heat up naturally outside under the sun. Don’t do this in the rain either.
  4. Give your money to the U.N. They know what’s best. Basically every report on the climate comes down to this so it must be legit. And honestly, I can’t think of a better organization to entrust our wealth and our future to.

Either way you look at it, we’ve got twelve years left. That’s three summer Olympics and one baseball season.

Make it count.

No. 1-2

Texas, Iowa, and Oklahoma are leading the way in wind power development. Does that make wind a red issue now?

Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico are in on the solar craze. Is that ok, or must we consider solar as a blue state thing because CA also does it?

When you get past the red/blue tribalism and look at economics, the solutions actually look pretty good. With 6 red states all in on green power, why doesn't any conservative site talk about it?

We just had another fire scare out here where we had to prepare in case of evac. When you look out your windows to see smoke, it's makes you a lot less tolerant of the "don't worry, it might be ok", mentality.

Things are far from hopeless if we could just get past this "the other side cares about this, so lets just do the opposite to hurt them."

Oh, and tesla, 4th best selling car in the country for Sept. Looking at total cost of ownership, BEVs look pretty good. You don't pay for oil changes, transmission service, far fewer brake services, or have to stop for gas. Just plug it in when you get home. They cost more up front, but less to operate.

But don't take my word, an uber driver in red Kentucky, made a video on how people react to a modern EV.

They seem to like it, does that mean Kentucky is blue now, or maybe, it's just a good product.


It would be nice, if at some point we could definitively corner these priests-of-doom & call BULLSHIT.

If they are wrong (as they have been for most of my lifetime) again, maybe this time will be the last straw?

Or will we just paper over it & continue to insist that anyone who doesn't believe is akin to a holocaust-denier?
