|What a stupid poll, of course the climate is changing, it always is... Not to far ago in human history there were wombats as large as cows, six meter long lizards, tigers in Australia and a lot more ice as well. Throughout most of the planets history it's either a giant snowball or a firey ball of burning death.
Now i'm all for conservation instead of clear felling all the trees like Joe did back in the 60's up in the western parts of central queensland with his mates bulldozers, however what i don't get about some of these climate change doomsayers is at what point in history do you want to preserve things? Yesterday, a few decades ago, last century, thirty thousand years ago or maybe a couple of million?
They're kinda like idiot wannabe environmental activist uni students who have fallen in love with some false misunderstanding of 'wilderness' and seem to be oblivious to the fact that Aboriginal people were farming kangaroos, emus, goannas, burning down the bush and carving vagina's in rocks long before the Summarians even thought up the idea of building ziggurats.
What we need is a really awesome and terrifying new strain of spanish flu, instead of this pansy swine flu which can't even kill 10,000 people across the globe, kill off a couple of billion or so humans and make the price of fuel a hell of a lot cheaper for those that are left to burn all the corpses in mass graves...
... i could rant, troll and rave a whole lot more, but i'm high on caffine, beer and in a nice groove for burning the midnight lamp and writing a few thousand lines of code.
