In 1997, the president of the Maldives told the UN that they were going to drown unless everyone cut back on their CO2 usage 20% by 2005. The EU proposed a more conservative target of 15% cutbacks by 2010
Since they made this urgent plea, sea level has risen half an inch at the Maldives, threatening to drown small immobile insects.
Conditions are becoming desperate for the natives in the Maldives.
Global CO2 emissions are up 50% since 1997, and rising fast. People burn fossil fuels because they want to live healthy, pleasant lives with modern conveniences.
We are watching the largest comedy of morons in history. Nothing they believe has any connection to reality, yet they persist in their irrational superstitions about a harmless trace gas.
Like most other religions, this insanity could go on indefinitely.
Only two things are infinite – the universe and human stupidity. And I’m not so sure about the former
