Al Gore loves to talk about the environment. He LOVES to talk about how man is ruining it with all of his carbon footprints and overuse of coal and fossil fuels. And of course, he LOVES to use his private jet to fly all over the world telling people to stop driving SUV’s as he uses SUV’s to get to his destinations once his private jet has landed. But Al Gore isn’t telling you the real truth (you knew that, right?).
For years, I’ve said on these pages, that Mother Earth is more than capable of dealing with anything we mere mortals can produce. She can produce unimaginable devastation and damage herself…millions of times that of what we are able to produce. And she herself can clean it up. Oh, it may take longer than you and I are going to be alive, but the results of the devastation are incredible.
Go back a mere 36 years to 1980, when this place in Washington State called Mt. St. Helen’s erupted. It wiped out over 240 square miles of everything in its path. Trees, roads, wildlife, buildings, people, all perished in a matter of a few minutes as volcanic dust (containing glass shards that you would breathe in, slashing your lungs to spaghetti), rock, and lava poured out of the mountain. Only half of the mountain blew up. 57 people died that day.
Want to know a dirty little secret? There is another volcano brewing just 575 miles away from Mt. St. Helen’s that would cause over 10,000 times the damage. It’s called Yellowstone National Park. It’s a “caldera”, a volcano that isn’t on a mountain. And it’s the most powerful in the world. When it goes, an area from San Diego to New York will be covered in ash. From Miami to Hudson Bay. It will wipe out Jackson Hole, WY in a matter of minutes. 70,000 people will be killed before you even hear about it on the news. And it will bring about catastrophic changes to the way we live. Our entire water supply will be gone. Our food supply gone. You can’t breathe the air for a period of a week because of the microscopic glass shards in the dust. And the temperature of the earth, something Al Gore loves to talk about dropping all of 0.1 degree Fahrenheit, will drop 10 degrees. THAT my friends, is climate change!
And it won’t be caused by you driving your SUV to your daughter’s soccer game. It won’t be caused by jets flying all over the country. It won’t be caused by coal or oil or natural gas. And it won’t be caused by the Russians. It will be natural. It has happened three times in history, the most recent about 660,000 years ago. And it averages a major blowup about every 660,000 years or so. Most scientists aren’t worried of it happening in our lifetime, but it could. There will be warning signs of course…just like there were with Mt. St. Helen’s, but it won’t matter much. Unless you’ve laid in for three years’ worth of food and water, you’re going to be stuck. And just as Mother Nature makes it happen, she will clean it up. Oh, you and I won’t be here, but it’ll happen. In 36 years, the effects of Mt. St. Helen’s are already starting to show healing. THAT is why you don’t believe Al Gore. He doesn’t have a clue what he’s talking about!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
