Every time I read a story about how global warming/climate change/whatever you wanna call it is going to kill off humans entirely, my first thought is “So what?”
Seriously. Who cares? Why is this a big deal?
Think about it…
If global warming/climate change/whatever you wanna call it is a hoax, then there’s nothing to worry about in that department. And if it isn’t a hoax and human beings are destroying the planet, I still can’t see any cause for alarm.
So we all die. Ho hum.
According to the global warming, Earth-first, save the planet philosophy, humans are a menace anyway. We’re a blight. A destructive force that consumes everything and gives nothing back.
So shouldn’t this planet’s champions therefore cheer our demise?
I mean, when we’re gone, this big, beautiful, peaceful planet can thrive and grow in eternal bliss with all of its:
· Fun-loving animals (Sharks give hugs with their teeth, didn’tcha know?)
· Gentle weather conditions (Katrina never would have happened if it weren’t for us.)
· Other harmless happenings (The Romans must have been working those coal-fired power plants WAY too hard back in 79 AD for Mount Vesuvius to lose its cool that way.)
Makes sense to me at least. And even if it doesn’t, I can’t bring myself to care about something so thoroughly unprovable as global warming.
