We’re having a heat wave–and record wildfires

wildfire3.jpgBut let’s not annoy the Denyers by saying this is due to global warming. No. Let’s instead imagine that there is a fabulously beautiful planet in a parallel universe where the people are foolish enough to pour billions of tons of heat-trapping greenhouse gases into the atmosphere every year.

On that mythical planet we’ll call Unearth, they also constantly have record breaking heat waves and wildfires, which keep getting worse and worse — heck in an amazing coincidence, Unearth’s richest country, the United Unsateds, also set a record for acreage destroyed by wildfires last year, beating the previous record which had only been set in 2005.

Unearth scientists had also predicted global warming would have such impacts. But on Unearth, when they started happening, the media actually made the link, and everyone realized the scientists were right and took strong action to avoid catastrophe. You see on Unearth, the fossil fuel companies didn’t launch a massive disinformation campaign, and ….

A fantasy, I know, but a scientist can dream.

    You are the only person on the internet spelling denyer with a y. We don’t deny that global warming is happening. It always warms up after an ice age. We deny that man is the sole cause of it. What we really can’t understand is why you want Man to be at fault so badly. Fortunately, your sick twisted view of your own species is never going to convert enough people for you to have any effect.

    He uses the ‘y’ to annoy the denialists and force them to project their ideology onto others. This way, the denialists don’t notice that society has passed them by.

    OK, I can see it now. As the last tree in the US burns up, you’ll be standing steadfast in front of reality, sayin,g”AHA. You can’t say for sure it was global warming that set THIS PARTICULAR tree on fire.”

    And you’ll be right. But we will be able to say they’re all gone from Human induced global warming.

    And by the way mini-mind, no one wants it to be “man” that causes global warming – it’s just what the facts tell us, or anyone else who doesn’t have his head shoved down an oil well or some other dark orfice
