Oh great....a week ago I would have paid somebody to shoot me. Or cheered if a humongous meteorite had slammed into the earth and wiped us all out. Now I'm happy and full of love and lust again...and want the party to go on forever. Only to have a group of mad scientists come along and tell me it's almost over. Huh? What?
"The dangers posed by climate change are nearly as dire as those posed by nuclear weapons....the effects may be less dramatic in the short term than the destruction that could be wrought by nuclear explosions, but over the next three to four decades climate change could cause irremediable harm to the habitats upon which human societies depend for survival."
Oh come on...where did they get these party poopers from? That Hawking guy should get out more often. How come they don't mention that one problem could eliminate the other?
"...Some regions would probably go back to cold conditions not experienced since medieval times and a climate phase sometimes referred to as the "Little Ice Age" when Europe in particular was hit by very harsh winters...."
See what I mean? So much for global warming....
Besides ......let's be truthful. Just because young people won't have a future. And will have to fight and probably eat each other to survive...doesn't mean we should ALL have to worry about it. Now. Does it?
Shouldn't we be worrying about the war with Iran instead....coz it's coming next month?
"The pieces are moving. They'll be in place by the end of February. The United States will be able to escalate military operations against Iran.....
As one of the last steps before a strike, we'll see USAF tankers moved to unusual places, like Bulgaria. These will be used to refuel the US-based B-2 bombers on their strike missions into Iran. When that happens, we'll only be days away from a strike...."
Oooh boy!!! The Chimp's last great gamble. Just when we thought he was finished. He puts on his war paint and strikes again. What a Chimporama of a drama!!!!
But I guess you can't blame him eh? Success in Iraq means handing the country over to the Shia. But that means handing it over to Iran coz they call the shots. And that would make Iran really powerful....and make the Sunni in Saudi Arabia really unhappy. And then there's the Iranian threat to nuke Israel. So bombing the shit out of Iran solves everything. Doesn't it?
And if things get out of hand....and Russia and China get involved. Well at least at least we won't have to worry about global warming...
See what I mean? God help the mullahfuckers in Tehran. But I figure we can't lose. And I'm dammed if I'm going to let the threat of nuclear annihilation get me down. And you shouldn't either. Hey life's too short. Just fuck your brains out like I'm doing. Drink ....a lot. Or failing that...think of all those dead religious extremists...and all that cheap gas.....
And hey!! You too can be sitting on top of the world!!!
Oh wow! Wasn't that awesome?
Now come on people admit it....I know I'm in love.... so everything seems so ......beautiful.
But who could be afraid of that?
Fuck the Doomsday Clock. Just don't forget to set your alarm clock to nuclear midnight. So you can turn on CNN.
Coz it's gonna be quite a show...
