Many people have been sending me various tidbits about rampant global warming insanity, but it’s taking me a long time to get round to posting them. This darn book of mine….it never wants to be done!
So here are just some quick links for you to mull on.
The Who’s-Nuttier-Than-A-Psychologist? Department
Walking outside rather than inside—even for just 15 minutes—makes you feel happier, more energetic and more protective of the environment. So says psychologists at a recent APA meeting. How do you design a “study” to test environmental protectiveness intensity? With an instrument of course. “Instruments” are the learned name for “questionnaires.”
It’s not that I dispute the “finding” that walking outside is good for you. It’s just that it’s yet another in an endless line of unnecessary useless “studies” done either for the sole purpose of generating papers, or because the “researchers” just aren’t that bright. See the link for more studies of similar intensity and validity.
You just cannot stop “researchers.” Some of them are claiming that hot weather—that caused by evil global warming—will lead to more blood contamination. Their logic? Blood spoils in the heat (for various reasons), global warming will warm the globe, therefore more blood will spoil.
A Nobel is on the way to Prof Dunstan, a specialist in emerging infectious diseases at Curtin University in Perth, for thinking up this one. Google the New Zealand Journal of Public Health to read more of his exploits. I haven’t the heart.
No, It’s the Fit People!
In a study that flatly contradicts the findings of Dr Harrister, PhD, “researchers” at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine in a letter to the medical journal Lancet. Apparently, these prescient folks figured that fat people eat more food than skinny ones, and that food costs money to transport, and that transportation releases more green house gases, which…well, you know the rest.
But our scientific study clearly showed the opposite. Extremely fit people release more CO2 into the air than do lazy slobs.
Nobody ever asked us for an interview.
Please Release Me
“Researcher” James Walsh says Divorce — yes, the dissolution of marriage — is what causes global warming.
This one is so incredibly stupid that I cannot think of something silly to say about it.
Dr X Invokes The Lord
Dr X, whom we met before advocating lawlessness to combat global warming, said that if we do not “act” now we will “destroy the creation.” That’s awfully close to religious language—he was in Kansas when he uttered those words—and one thing lefties cannot abide is any hint of Christian religion. New Age yes, Muslim yes, vague yoga-nistics sure, Mother Earth and soaring hawks as spiritual messengers absolutely, but Christianity? Not a chance.
Thin ice here, Dr X. Best stick to anti-USA type rhetoric. This God stuff can bite you in the ass.
Flesh Eating Bipeds
“Researchers” at the Food Climate Research Network, based at the University of Surrey want to limit your meat intake to four portions a week. This, they say, will surely cool the planet.
Eating less meat will also make you cooler. Nothing hipper than a vegetarian.
Do not laugh, you absurd ill-informed fools! Did you not know that cows are “four-legged weapons of mass destruction”?
That you did not shows that you lack the kind of enlightened education provided to ivory-towered researchers the world over.
