Global Warming.. I mean Climate Change...

Have you noticed that the term Global Warming is out the window these days and Climate Change is in. That's because the climate changed. It was a freezing cold winter this year.. very freezing cold. Climate Change is the new hip way of saying that we should spend a bazillion dollars to do what?? Build obscenely large homes and drive huge SUVs and then buy carbon offsets so that our carbon footprints can be decreased. Al is fooling many of the folks most of the time, but he is not fooling me.

In Utah, we have a problem. We all live in this small little area along the Wasatch Mountain range. And, we all want to drive our cars up and down this corridor, which causes air pollution. We need to not do that so much. I hope that our community will really use the trains when they are made available. We need to live in moderate homes that we can pay for and demand that our vehicles be made more fuel efficient. We need to recycle and not to create so much waste and we need to be careful with water.

I believe in doing all those things, but I don't believe in Climate Change.. I just don't. I believe that we need to be careful with air quality because we pollute the air we are also trying to breath. My neighbor reminded me Sunday of something.. although he was making a completely different point. Take an ride in an airplane at night and fly across this great land of ours. When you look down, the largest of our cities become the tiniest points of light.. our tallest skyscrapers are dwarfed by mountains. You can fly for quite a while at 500 miles per hour and see almost nothing out there. It makes you feel small.

So Al.. my guess is those glaciers you've been so sad about.. have been freezing up quite nicely this past winter. Don't worry Al.. it will be OK.

John Coleman, founder of The Weather Channel, wants to sue Al Gore for fraud, "As you look at the atmosphere over the last 25 years, there's been perhaps a degree of warming, perhaps... probably a whole lot less than that, and the last year has been so cold that that's been erased," he said.

"I think if we continue the cooling trend a couple of more years, the general public will at last begin to realize that they've been scammed on this global-warming thing."
Climate change Mr. Coleman.. we're calling it Climate change now. It was too dang cold to call it global warming anymore.

AMEN SISTER! I must say, that I'm shocked that more towns in Davis County (my research shows only Bountiful) don't recycle more than "just" paper - I wanted to pack all of the cans/bottles from my parents house in my suitcase to recycle back here... we recycle EVERYTHING - glass, paper, cardboard, tin, plastic - and our town not only saves but gets paid for it.
"Global warming" is a total hoax. Just goes to show that people will believe anything the TV tells them without searching for more info.
I do think a lot of Utahns have a bit of a problem with the "Keeping up with the Joneses" syndrome. Bigger does not always equal better!

I agree, and I think our planet as a living thing is always changing,just as we are. My personal body has not stayed the same one decade of my life and I thing the planet is sort of the same. It is always changing too. And Al just bugs me, always has!

You are right again. Please use the trains and even the busses you will save on gas (most likely) car repair and have to purchase tires less often. Of course it will save the environment as well. We wont get as much pollution on inversion sets in here on the corridor!
Al - even though you didnt win the election but you did win an academy award save the lies for campagines that dont really matter please :) ok that was harse but Al honestly back your stuff up with scientific evidence not just Michael Moore antics!
