Wordsmith's Practical, Selfish Solution to Offset Global Warming
It's certainly not an Iraq-roasting 130 degrees out here in Southern California; nevertheless, I'm sweating buckets in the shade.
Ok, I'm throwing in the towel and hereby renounce my global warming skepticism; and I make the following pledge of faith: "Global Warming is the One True God, and Al Gore is his Prophet."
Here is how I have been doing my part to offset global warming through the summer heat:
This is a Japanese watermelon popsicle. Simply the best. Ever! Those little seeds are chocolate; on the melon version, it's white chocolate. Mmmmmm....
I had one of those American versions today. I actually had to spit out real seeds. I hate those healthier popsicles!
When I was in college, the student store had sodas from a company called "St. Thomas". They had watermelon sodas, and on the bottle it made it a point to describe the soda as "seedless". I kid you not!
Although this and the watermelon popsicle photo were found on the internet, I really do have a Hello Kitty fan (and two popsicles left in the freezer). I'm just too lazy right now to take pix myself.
No, this is not me. This is a fellow coach at work, taking cuts in front of the kids to cool off. Our head coach sets up a makeshift slip n slide that runs straight through the gym.
There's no air conditioning in the gym; so it can sometimes feel like a sauna. The slip-n-slide only got set up about 3 or 4 times; on some of the other days, we allowed the kids to toss water balloons. Sometimes, things would get carried away...
Today's LA Times:
The star of "An Inconvenient Truth," former Vice President Al Gore, says he and his family are carbon neutralAl Gore shouldn't be "carbon neutral"; he should be running "carbon negative", if he's so convinced about the apocalyptic threat to the planet.
I haven't been staying on top of the current debates on climate change; I know there was some recent hoopla over James Hansen of NASA. (James Lewis at American Thinker has been writing a series of articles on it). And I know Curt has been on a tear , with global warming posts through August.
