After railing against the Honorable Al Gore, I found myself wondering, "Do I hate the environment?" Someone was talking about a balloon release for Red Ribbon Week. They were concerned about how this would effect animals. I said I didn't really care. The person, actually it was Fiona who suggested confetti be thrown or something like that. I have to wonder how much against the environment I am.
Can you imagine a candidate coming out anti-environment, anti-child, or anti-education? Maybe they are on the opposite side position-wise, but they wouldn't dream of coming out as anti-senior citizen. I don't think I'm anti-environment. I think I'm just common sense.
If weather records have only been kept for around 100 years, then how can we say that there are actually any phenomena that have been exhibited. I'm not saying that we're not in a severe drought here in the south. I couldn't argue with that fact. What I don't quite buy into is that man is having such a huge impact on the earth. I'm not arguing that the overall temperature is going up in the last little while. I'm saying that I don't believe all this "mayhem" that has been perpetrated has been done by man and the regular fluctuations are nil effect.
Or, I may be insane. I do teach high school math. . .
