The Dead of Winter
Posted by Sam at 4:31 PM | tags:

It's January 30th... the dead of winter... somewhere in New England... and I hiked a mountain in a t-shirt today. WTF?

I don't care what the president says, global warming is in full motherfriggin' effect.

sad to say, but this will be the only thing i agree with the president on.

i'm sure you can find many higher temperatures recorded for this time of year in the past century.

besides, global warming would really only lead us right back into another ice age...hmmm...isnt that naturally due about now anyways???

I dunno homey... we must be reading different blogs. In fact, I just read this one today. Tony Blair says, "it is now plain that the emission of greenhouse gases... is causing global warming at a rate that is unsustainable." And, from the report, there may be "potentially large numbers of extinctions" and "major increases in hunger and water shortage risks... particularly in developing countries". Yikes! That's some scary stuff...

But regardless... it's been unseasonably warm lately. And, as a hard core New Englander, I'm feeling pretty gipped!

Well I was watching Penn & Teller's Bullshit and they had the former president of Greenpeace on and he said that the whole Global Warming thing has been co-opted by people with political/anticorprate agendas and the current science dosen't support the claims. Yes that right I get all of my environmental news from a Showtime show called Bullshit...but you know you all rely on The Daily Show for your news so there!

Well either way, we're all doomed. Doomed I tell you! Doomed!

Really though, a topic like this is so politically charged, it's hard to know what studies or whose statistics to believe. That's why I make up my own... Kidding. Just kidding.

Sam Who!?
Sam is an amazing and humble guy. Once, he rushed into a burning building, up six flights of stairs to save a kitten from certain death. He speaks eight languages, has mastered three varieties of martial arts, is a wine expert, and is a pulitzer prize winning author. Sam is an international heart-throb who prefers a quiet evening at home knitting afghans for the homeless, to the go-go, glitz and glamor of the party scene. I think the day he won the silver medal for ballroom dancing at the 98 olympics was the happiest of his life. Pretty impressive for a guy who never finished the 8th grade. - Carrie, 04
