I'm Melting! Melting!

Happy Earth Day!


(If you're new here then you probably don't hear my voice dripping with sarcasm right now.)

It's not that I don't believe in global warming. I just disagree that "the debate is settled." There are laws in Newton's law of gravity or Archimedes' Principal. And there are evolution, Big Bang global warming. There are reputable scientists that disagree with the theory of man-made global warming and credible studies that show global warming is part of a natural cycle or related to solar activity. Is it that far-fetched to think that the Earth's warming is somehow related to that big ball of fire in the sky? Or does it seem more likely that a naturally-occuring compound that trees need to grow is somehow toxic to the Earth? I don't know, maybe it's just me but I'm just sayin'...

I think I'll agree with John Coleman, founder of the Weather Channel, who said the man-made global warming myth is "the greatest scam in history." Cap and trade and carbon credits are just another form of taxation. But that's just me.

You know, I used to recycle and try to conserve energy. But the global warming hysteria has given conservation such a bad name I don't want anything to do with it. I mean, I'm all for stewardship of God's creation and I don't think dumping toxic waste in rivers is a good idea. But I don't want to be mistaken for a green-loving, tree-hugging, fear-mongering global warming alarmist.

So, I'm celebrating Earth Day by driving a few extra miles in my gas-guzzling SUV and crankin' the a/c down to 67 degrees.

I may even kill a polar bear.

Oh, I kid! I don't need PETA on my case.

My 8 year-old told me that Nickelodeon is running an Earth Day ad telling kids to turn off all the lights and not watch TV today.

I asked her, "So, what does that mean we're going to do?"

She answered, with a sly grin, "Turn on every. single. light. and watch tv ALL day!"

Indoctrination complete.

In other news, I finally broke down and got my hair colored for the first time. It's like admitting I'm getting old.

Sorry the picture is a little blurry. I took it of myself and had trouble with the auto-focus.

Hey, just think of all the chemicals that were used on my hair that are now in the water system.

You made me laugh VERY hard in this post, Lisa.

Cute hair, too!

Yea! Adding to pollution with hair color is an honorable thing. I'm going tomorrow to do the same thing!

I'm with you on this topic. I believe it's a cycle and not a crisis. Life is ever changing. Just look at this winter we just had. One of the coldest in decades.

Global warming, my foot!
