A group of kids from the "Green House Network" - the kind of children who really believe that "The Day After Tomorrow" is reality - organizes the "Flat Earth Award" to appreciate the most thoughtful and most effective "global warming denier". The 2005 nominees are
- Michael Crichton
- Rush Limbaugh
- Fred Singer
And yes, he has interesting things to say - I've already read his acceptance speech. ;-)
What makes me a bit happier is that the life of these weird green kids is not such a smooth sailing. If you look at their website
- "Why do you care about the Climate Crisis?"
» A voter for Singer writes: Global Warming is Bovine excrement of titanic proportions. If you had a brain in your head it would rattle. Besides it is ALL your fault so go face the corner of the room until, hold your braeath until you turn blue or mommy tells you that she loves you as much as your brother.
» A voter for Limbaugh writes: I don't. I should be one of the nominees for the Flat Earth Award. It would be an honor. You idiots should just go live in a cave and eat grub worms. Ever wonder why they call it Greenland? Or hear of the "mini" Ice-Age? Ever wonder why we had droughts before cars and other hydrocarbons and man's "evil" influence? You people are morons. I'm going to B&N and buy "State of Fear", listen to Rush in the car, and read more on JunkScience when I get back.
» A voter for Singer writes: Fred is tops! remember Scientific Concensus also gave us: The Universe revolves around the Earth; Comets and other astronomical phenomena are prophetic signs from the gods; The Earth is 4000 years old; Thunder storms and other meteorological phenomena are caused by angry gods and "witches".No doubt these beliefs were due to 'Global Warming' too!! §;¬)
» A voter for Singer writes: I don't. There is none.
» A voter for Singer writes: I hope someday I'll be good enough to win this award, but untill then Singer is the man.
» A voter for Singer writes: Fred Singer has done more any other single individual to advance rationality and sensibility on climate issues.
» A voter for Singer writes: Singer is the MAN standing up for truth while under constant attack from psudo eco scientists!
» A voter for Singer writes: because it is not a crisis
» A voter for Singer writes: To persuade nonscientists that 'scientific consensus' is an oxymoron.
» A voter for Singer writes: Because Fred Singer might be able to say something interesting to these crazy teenagers.
» A voter for Singer writes: He's your guy!!
» A voter for Singer writes: There was once a SCIENTIFIC CONSENSUS that the world was flat too. It based on the viewpoint of THE SCIENTISTS and it SCIENTIFICALLY validated what people wanted to believe. Yes the earth IS getting warmer. Is man the cause? Is there consensus on THIS? Have we determined what ended the ice-ages yet?
» A voter for Crichton writes: I'm confused! As an committed enviro-whacko, should I be proclaiming a coming ice age or global warming?
» A voter for Singer writes: Oooh! "peer reviewed scientists." Pretty scary - eh kids?!
