As I celebrate the fact that the United States of America can turn the power on in New Orleans for yesterday's big speech by our beloved President Bush, but not that the treasonous journalist Brian Williams of the National Bolshevik Corporation (September 16) feels the need to note this, I just want to say that I have never wanted to hear about global warming.
I have long felt this way, not because I don’t believe global warming exists or that humans are at least partially responsible (I haven’t studied the science in detail and so I will just assume that humans are to blame), but rather because I’ve always figured the rapture was going to happen really soon and it wouldn’t matter.
Now, however, I have a great new reason. Steve Connor reports in today's Independent that many scientists believe the damage from global warming is now irreversible. So, even if the rapture doesn’t happen in the next 100 years, we can’t do anything to correct global warming, which according to the Rush Limbaugh school of logic means we aren't responsible for it (Media Matters, September 12).
...or something. The point is, I don't care and neither should you.
