Global Warming: Just a Theory

February 12, 2007

While the Fundies are busy claiming that evolution is a theory, we quickly forget that Global Warming is also a “just a theory.” As in, most of the available data says that global temperatures are on the rise, and that it’s due to human-based factors.

But, of course, there are, as always, alternate theories that require testing. Like this one. You can read for all the details, but the gist is that the globe warms and cools periodically [I know, I know, shocking!]. And that part of this warming and cooling has to do with the switching of the magnetic poles of the earth.

Makes sense to me. I don’t know if it explains everything. And to be honest, I don’t care. I don’t try to recycle and eat a vegetarian diet and drive less because I want to stop global warming. I do it for fun! To push myself, to see how little I can live off of and still have a good time. I don’t know if most people would think of it that way, but it’s a sort of game for me. Yeah, my favorite game is to see how weird I can be.

So maybe global warming, capital G, capital W, doesn’t exist. But that doesn’t mean that you get free reign in eating your fossil fuel-rich beef and driving your polluting SUVs. Scratch that, you get free reign, but why would you want to?

Namaste.
