Letters: Global warming is okay

Shirley resident prefers global warming over global cooling

Global warming is a good thing. Global cooling is a bad thing. Global cooling means ice; lots and lots of ice. Global warming means-a Northwest Passage; that long sought for, cheap, easy sea-route connecting all major continents. And to top it all off this Northwest Passage that global warming will provide, runs through Canadian territory.

So why exactly is everybody against global warming? For myself I’m against global cooling, I don’t want ice: I don’t like polar bears.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think for a minute that gas run engines are good, but until a better way becomes dominant, they will prevail. And, one of the reasons they will prevail is that the people who are apparently against everything, are against dams. Which makes me believe that these types of people who are against just about everything, have some sort of ego power trip agenda going on that has nothing to do with anything except their own ego power trip: party poopers is what they are.

When technological breakthroughs enable us to use sunlight at maximum efficiency for our power needs, clearly the use of gas, coal and dams will be rendered ridiculous. Until then, why don’t all the ego power trip people just-shut up. Or would that be too much for their ego?

In the meantime, a nice side effect of using C02 producing fuels is a slight, a very slight increase in the rate of the already accelerating global warming: the global warming that is a perfectly normal periodic swing in our global climate from cold to warm, then after warm to cold. Just be glad, I would advise, that we are in a warming cycle. I would hate to imagine what the other trend is like — the Ice Ages. Which, if any of us live long enough, will surely return for us to appreciate.
