Becoming More Environmentally Conscious

The other day I watched the movie An Inconvenient Truth directed by former Vice President Al Gore. While watching this movie I became increasingly interested in the environment and what the future holds for my children and my children's children. I mean, the movement is called "Going Green" and money is green so I thought maybe this would be cool.


While watching to movie I learned many interesting facts. For example, did you know that carbon dioxide and other gases warm the surface of the planet naturally by trapping solar heat in the atmosphere. This is a good thing because it keeps our planet habitable. However, by burning fossil fuels such as coal, gas and oil and clearing forests we have dramatically increased the amount of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere and temperatures are rising!!! Oh no, I sure hope that lighting $100 bills to light my cigarette isn't harmful to the environment!!


Also it it is alleged in the film that that malaria has spread to higher altitudes in places like the Colombian Andes, 7,000 feet above sea level. I am not quite sure what that has to do with global warming but it is upsetting just the same!


Or did you know that the number of Category 4 and 5 hurricanes has almost doubled in the last 30 years? Well, the truth is that is not really any surprise to me, you know, with all of the rain making that we are making happen.


Happy April Fool's day you stupid fucks. Don't worry, we will never give a shit about the environment.

If global warming -- fossil fuel burning, tree clearing, binge drinking beer farts -- is so bad why is the current life expectancy rate in the U.S. higher now than before the Louisiana Purchase?
