Now that the "expert" alarmists have changed their tune by renaming "Global Warming" to "Climate Change", (obviously the reason for the alteration was that a House hearing on warming of the planet was canceled in Washington, DC because of a snow storm), I wonder what their next title for the "weather" will be?
Well-paid Prof. Tim Flannery, this year's 'Australian of the Year', hauls in hefty fees of up to $64,000.00 for his speeches on whether it's Global Warming or whether it's 'Climate Change' or whether it's 'Hot Air' causing the weather.
Richard Branson, who, by the way, in case anyone of you out there are still unaware, started off Virgin Airlines many years ago, has offered a princely amount of $25million to whoever comes up with a solution to rid us of these gases causing all this hot air. (I'm thinking of putting my hand up...I have a couple of solution ideas). Airlines, again for any of you who may not be aware, spread a bit of gas throughout the skies of our world. As do these well-paid 'experts'.
On the front page of this weekend's "Australian" newspaper, so I was told, cat's are being blamed as a cause of Global Warming/Climate Change/Or Whatever Weather because of their flatulence. As an aside, I've never heard nor sensed any of my cats being flatulent...ever! Some others want sheep and cattle banned because of the methane gases they emit. If these 'insignificant others' have their way, we might all end up being vegetarians whether we like it or not. If this , indeed, did eventuate...there may not be any beans, vegetables or legumes for us to eat....as there will be no natural fertilizers. Anyhow, beans would have to be banned. Chickens would have to be banned as they lay eggs and eggs would be banned. Cabbages would have to be on the banned list, as would onions, I guess. I could go on...but then I'd be aiding and abetting 'hot air'!
Of course, we mustn't forget our politicians, they add vastly to all of these hot air and gas emissions. Take Bob Brown, for instance, the leader of the Green Party (I can imagine going to one of his parties...not!). Actually, I wish somebody would 'take' him and lose him. What an idiotic suggestion he uttered the other day! He wants to ban all coal mining in this country. Of course, he had no alternative to offer...just ban all coal mining. Simple as that. Even I could make headlines with statements like that! I wonder how he will manage to travel from his electorate in Tasmania to Canberra and elsewhere? He could swim across Bass Strait then pedal his bicycle to every where else on the mainland, of course and then swim back to Tasmania when he's finished his troubadouring around the country. He could always camp along the way with his candles...I think he would be an expert at that. He'd better not use Petroleum Jelly to protect his body, though.
So whether it's the weather or perhaps in simpler terms, nature, these 'experts' continue to be paid well when they probably are the worst offenders of all!
