Richard Daybell – Novels, stories and short humor
Imagine the world as a little globe with a cute little village inside. It’s winter. You turn the globe upside down, then right side up, and little snowflakes begin to drift down, softly, lazily, silently. Cut! Cue global warming. No more little snowflakes, just water filling the globe, and, oh dear, no more cute little village. It’s underwater. Welcome to the 21st century and reality.
Satellite images recently revealed that the polar ice cap is growing smaller at a much faster rate than previously expected. That’s not good. We should be concerned. And we are. Except for those folks out there who deny there’s any such thing as global warming.
And they’re out there. Here’s an excerpt from something called the Socio-Economic History Blog: “Man made global warming is a fraud from day 1. It is an Illuminist SCAM to implement a global tax on all human beings for just being alive. Their so-called Carbon Tax will never solve global warming even assuming it is true. It is to set a precedent for global taxation by a World Government for the benefit of Illuminist banksters! The science behind Man Made Global Warming is at best fraudulent! The snakes have changed their slogan to ‘Climate Change’ because the amount of scientific data saying the earth is cooling is irrefutable! Do not be deceived !”
When did it become a political issue? And why? Most scientists say this is happening. I guess it must have been when Rush Limbaugh said it wasn’t happening. To a certain segment of our population, Rush is omniscient.
Flashback to 1952. Kevin McCarthy has discovered that pods from outer space have invaded and are taking over the bodies of human beings everywhere. As a good, but terrified, citizen, McCarthy frantically tries to warn the country. Rush Limbaugh goes on the radio to say: “There are no pods from outer space. It’s a liberal plot.”
Perhaps most of the world’s scientists are wrong and Rush is right when he thunders forth:”Despite the hysterics of a few pseudo-scientists, there is no reason to believe in global warming.” Nevertheless, wouldn’t it be more prudent to act on the advice of the scientists and if they’re proved wrong breathe a sigh of relief and have a good laugh with Rush. It’s certainly better than acting on Rush’s advice and finding out he’s wrong.
“Hey, there’s a frost warning tonight. What does that say about your so-called global warming, huh?”
