A Letter to a Nutcase (in my humble opinion)

Dear Albert Gore,

What is up former VP of the USA? Or should I say Mr. Nobel Peace Prize? What exactly did you do to get that again? Oh yeah, you said it was going to get very very hot and all life all the planet will be OVER!

Aside from the obvious reasons why the Nobel Peace Prize committee got it wrong, like the fact that Global Warming has absolutely nothing to do with promoting peace and goodwill among man, but it is still kind of chilly here.

Oh yeah, it's supposed to snow tonight as well. Guess you fooled somebody.

Let me tell you what I think. I think recycling is a great idea and that everyone should do it. I think that conserving energy by turning off the lights in rooms that aren't being used is a great idea. I think that everyone should have their thermostats set to a more reasonable temperature in the winter and the summer, to conserve energy is a great idea as well.

I also think that carbon footprints are a joke. I think that preaching about saving the planet, while using more energy than the average American, heck than the average American block is a big bout of hypocrisy, and you should be ashamed. Being carbon neutral sounds all impressive, but you know what, you still used up that fuel, and you still polluted that air. What difference does it make what else you do, it isn't going to change that fact.

News flash for you, almighty former VP. If a volcano were to erupt today, say the equivalent of a Mt. St. Helen's, it would leave a bigger carbon footprint than the entire population of the United States. How you planning on stopping that?

How about ideas for alternate fuel sources, like wind energy, solar energy and others like that? Why not try to get your buddy in Massachusetts to go for those wind turbines? Oh yeah, that's right it will ruin his view. So what you really want to do is have your cake (unlimited use of fossil fuels and the like), and eat it too (by depriving the little guy the opportunity to use renewable resources by scaring the crap out of them).

Mr. Gore please retire peacefully and leave us hard-working people alone, and quit trying to scare the heck out of us - it's not nice.

Good Day
