I was sent this Article and I must Say it makes a Great Read! If it’s True it Certainly Dispels all the Myths doesn’t it?
Here is some truth
The volcanic eruption in Iceland in just 4 days NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT made in the past 5 years to control CO2 emissions on our planet – all of us.
Of course you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress, it’s that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow, and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life.
I know, it’s very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kid’s “The Green Revolution” science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning products, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir to save on water, selling your 4WD and speedboat, holidaying at home instead of overseas, nearly getting hit every day on your pushbike, replacing all of your 50c light globes with $10.00 energy saving ones…well, all of the things everyone has done all went down the tube in just 4 days.
The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth’s atmosphere in just 4 days, yes 4 DAYS ONLY by that volcano in Iceland, has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon. And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud any one time – EVERY DAY!
I don’t really want to rain on the parade too much, but I should mention that when the Mt Pinatubo volcano erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in its entire existence on this wonderful planet of ours. That’s right people, Mt Pinatubo was active for over one year! Think about it!
Of course I shouldn’t spoil this touchy-feely, tree-hugging, politically correct moment and mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle which keeps happening, despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.
And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud but the fact of the matter is that the bush fire season across Australia and western USA this year alone will negate all efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next 2-3 years. And it happens every year!
Just remember that your government is determined to impose a whopping carbon tax on you based on the bogus “human-caused” climate change scenario.
Hey, isn’t it interesting how they don’t mention “Global Warming” anymore, but instead mention “Climate Change”. You know why? It’s because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees in the past 100 years and these global warming bullshit artists got caught with their pants down.
And just keep in mind that a carbon tax is the prelude to an Emissions Trading Scheme (basically another huge new tax you and I will have to pay for) and it will achieve absolutely nothing except make us all poorer! It won’t stop any volcanoes from erupting, I can guarantee you that for sure!
But hey, relax, give the world a hug and have a nice day!
PS: I wonder if Iceland is buying carbon offsets?
