Global Warming-- the Ultimate Reality TV Series

The National Post's Lawrence Solomon has posted his latest article denouncing the global warming craze. It suggests that the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the IPCC, is all wet when it comes to oceans and the longevity of C02 in the atmosphere. The article ends by saying, "It is all a fiction."

This got me thinking.

Perhaps we are all in the midst of someone's apocalyptic scifi fantasy. At some point the person playing Al Gore will rip off the obvious latex mask -- have you looked closely, lately? -- and say, "gotcha"! Then, all the principals will come forward and admit that it was all an experiment in social control, and the ultimate in reality TV programming, since it involved the whole world.

The credits will roll -- brought to you by the New York Times, the CBC, the Sierra Club, Greenpeace, PETA, various UN panels and organizations.

And they'll end by saying, "OK, maybe it was only a half-baked idea, but it was all in good fun".

And the carbon credits thing? All the money saved and invested, to be redistributed among the poorest nations of the world.

And that's the way the Ball bounces.

That's quite an imagination!! but sounds good to me, just about what I thought all along.
But another thought, "This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it."
I see nothing about our business of changing the way God makes our day!!
