Why am I not blogging??

I do have one thing to say to one particular commenter:

I hope to God, Creeper, that you didn't take and pass a college-level course in logic. Simple English makes no dent in your logic so it seems that there is no way to penetrate your very set mind. One cannot reason with someone who WILL NOT reason.

I intended to post about ice cores and so on at a later date. Work issues have tied me up much longer than usual and I have had to take a longer break than usual from blogging. But, Creeper, I have to confess I cannot fathom what to do with you. You live on another planet, intellectually, so far as I can see. Maybe they really do have a man-made global warming problem on that one...?

People, I have only said that the recorded history of mankind shows that there are cyclical fluctuations in the average temperature of the earth. I have not called upon speculations of ages that are supposed to have happened before the time of Noah's Flood, nor do I believe that the earth has a record of such ages. I have made this abundantly clear, so for all of you who cannot comprehend this, kindly ask yourself whether it is because you fail due to a lack of intellectual capacity or because of some kind of idealogical mindset that hinders your ability to think clearly in certain areas. I am suspecting that column "B" is the answer for those who fit this description since those commenters have used vocabulary usually associated with fairly learned individuals.

Commenters may have been chasing their tails and attacking this particular straw man because they know what I posted is supported by evidence and cannot be refuted. In any event, their failure to bring in evidences to the contrary means that my point of view has carried the day.

GLOBAL WARMING IS A CYCLICAL PHENOMENON THAT WE CAN AND WILL NOT STOP. Many would question whether we would be wise to try. There are advantages to a bit of warming in many areas of the planet. No matter, when warming occurs then events are triggered that begin a cooling cycle and the whole process simply goes on. We might as well decide to put an end to the tides.

I DON'T CARE IF AL GORE WINS THE NOBEL PRIZE, EITHER! Once Yassar Arafat won it, the Prize became a joke. Yes, I know the "I invented the internet" and "I was the inspiration for Love Story" are mountains made out of factual molehills. I just happen to think they are funny because they do tend to represent the man. Gore is determined to be bigger than he is and more important than he is, if you know what I mean. There is one thing that is really MASSIVE about the man, though, and that is his CARBON FOOTPRINT!!!!!!!!!

HAHAHAHAHA~ Lobo summed it up nicely:

"1. I can't wait for your response on Gore's Oscar.

Will mine suffice?

I'm just wondering if you saw an Inconvenient Truth?

I haven't. Have you seen the new version?

Last night, Al Gore’s global-warming documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, collected an Oscar for best documentary feature, but the Tennessee Center for Policy Research has found that Gore deserves a gold statue for hypocrisy.

Gore’s mansion, located in the posh Belle Meade area of Nashville, consumes more electricity every month than the average American household uses in an entire year, according to the Nashville Electric Service (NES).

In his documentary, the former Vice President calls on Americans to conserve energy by reducing electricity consumption at home.

The average household in America consumes 10,656 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year, according to the Department of Energy. In 2006, Gore devoured nearly 221,000 kWh—more than 20 times the national average.

Last August alone, Gore burned through 22,619 kWh—guzzling more than twice the electricity in one month than an average American family uses in an entire year. As a result of his energy consumption, Gore’s average monthly electric bill topped $1,359.

Since the release of An Inconvenient Truth, Gore’s energy consumption has increased from an average of 16,200 kWh per month in 2005, to 18,400 kWh per month in 2006.

Gore’s extravagant energy use does not stop at his electric bill. Natural gas bills for Gore’s mansion and guest house averaged $1,080 per month last year.

“As the spokesman of choice for the global warming movement, Al Gore has to be willing to walk the walk, not just talk the talk, when it comes to home energy use,” said Tennessee Center for Policy Research President Drew Johnson.

In total, Gore paid nearly $30,000 in combined electricity and natural gas bills for his Nashville estate in 2006.

Is it possible that George Bush is a secret Green? Evidently his Crawford Winter White House has 25,000 gallons of rainwater storage, gray water collection from sinks and showers for irrigation, passive solar, geothermal heating and cooling. “By marketplace standards, the house is startlingly small,” says David Heymann, the architect of the 4,000-square-foot home. "Clients of similar ilk are building 16-to-20,000-square-foot houses." Furthermore for thermal mass the walls are clad in "discards of a local stone called Leuders limestone, which is quarried in the area. The 12-to-18-inch-thick stone has a mix of colors on the top and bottom, with a cream-colored center that most people want. “They cut the top and bottom of it off because nobody really wants it,” Heymann says. “So we bought all this throwaway stone. It’s fabulous. It’s got great color and it is relatively inexpensive.”

I think he presented some pretty logical ways to reduce emissions

Do you take advice from someone who is "all hat and no cattle"?

You buy the 'sizzle' and I'll buy the 'steak'!


Thanks, Lobo. You said it!
