I was listening to Beck in my car this morning.
He was going on (and on and on and on....
about his new diet (imposed by wifey) and how nasty it was. But how healthy it will make him (maybe). I wasn't able to hear the conclusion of it but my take was why would you do something like this to yourself? Why would you intentionally make yourself so miserable? What point is there to a life without "quality of life"?
While I do understand the principles of conservation, stewardship, and "no pain/no gain", the ambitions of the global-warmists fail even the most elementary risk/benefit analysis. What they would like us to do would be to ruin us as a species and make us so miserable that most of us would rather just end it rather than subject ourselves to more of the same.
One look at the recent events in Japan should be all you need to see that the effect of humans upon the world is like a hummingbird fart in a hurricane. Sure we can scar the surface, but it soon enough heals itself to its own prescription. Humans have the unmitigated gall to dare define how the Earth should look.
I say screw them. Enjoy the Earth for what it is, not what you want it to be. And go ahead and have that piece of cheesecake - it won't kill ya!
