Remember Global Warming Superheroes? A site where I—cough, cough—made villain of the day? While glancing through my logs, I was led to Timberati: Reasonably green thoughts. The folks there were kind enough to have a chat about my elevation under the title “You cannot be serious.”
Timberati’s incredulity was directed at the GW Superheroes of course. Anyway, one of the commenters to that piece was by “Alicia” who said,
OMG! There must be a virus spreading! We have a similar website in Spain (cyclo-idiots?): http://www.ecoheroes.es/index.php . BUT, while yours look like a “harmless” kid indoctrination tool, the spanish site joined 10,000 (10,000!!) college students to “pedal against CO2”. All Andalusian Universities involved. They had to pedal on STATIC BICYCLES to fight CO2 emissions, of course, without moving from their location: http://www.ecoheroes.es/pedalea.php
I don’t know if I should worry about California or Spain. Both maybe. When are “they” going to wake up? This is too sad.
The green-clad Ecoheroes apparently battle under the motto “O Cambiamos Todos, O Cambia El Clima”! Rousing, no?
Now, I searched diligently both the Ecoheroes and GW Superheroes sites, but I was unable to discover what super powers any of these badly dressed people had that would be useful for battling climate change. None has, say, super lungs with which to inhale and absorb CO2 (and eventually excrete coal). Nor do any have supermega laser vision powerful enough to convert that gas into its constituent parts (carbon and oxygen).
None can spread out his body into a molecular shield that, when placed in orbit, blocks incoming solar radiation, thus lowering temperatures. And not one has super frigid breath that can be used to create clouds (at the appropriate height) which would also block evil solar rays.
The only thing that any of them are able to do is to whine, carp, and insult. Not in a super way, either, but in the mode of an overweight, angry, confused teen dressing up for a comic book convention, and using language that would not even be considered elevated on a middle school playground.
The only point of bringing this up is to offer one more (minor) piece of evidence that the fight about “climate chance” is an ideological and not a scientific one. Evidence has little to do with it, belief is everything.
Regular posts to return to normal soon.
