John Shimkus is a Fucking Moron

Watch the video and be terrified. John Shimkus is a dumb cunt and he has political power?!? The video supplied is a congressional hearing on global warming. After hearing a bunch of testimonies from scientists explaining how climate change works and what it is doing, John Shimkus gives his testimony.

Guess what this fuckwhit does, c’mon try to guess.

He starts out by trying to conflate not taking his religious bullshit with censorship, then he whips out a bible and starts reading the part where god promises that he won’t flood the world again. He then says that because he believes that the bible is the perfect infalliable word of god, that settles the global warming issue and that we shouldn’t worry about our inpact on the planet, because Jesus is going to destory the planet. He then goes on to quote revelation to and say that only god know when the world will end. He then states that there isn’t enough carbon in the atmosphere and says that there is a theological debate about wether or not this is a “carbon starved” planet.

What the fuck does theology have to do with reality? Now a single fucking thing! We live in reality, not some fairytale bullshit thought up by bronze age savages to explain away things which they were too fucking stupid to comprehend!

 

I’m now going to refute his argument with his own reasoning on a few grounds:

1. Lets say for a second that the bible isn’t an ancient book of bronze age bullshit. Lets take the enormous leap in reasoning and take it as the infalliable word of a deranged desert god. Even if you take it as literal and true, it says god won’t destroy the world via flooding again. It doesn’t say anything about god preventing humans from destroying the world.

2. In Revelation it says that nobody knows the day nor the hour that the world will end. The climate scientists have predicted neither a day nor an hour. That makes the Revelation reference a non sequitur, even if it is the literal word of god.

People who don’t care about the earth because they think Jesus is coming back to destroy it are morons. They should all go drink bleach and meet their imaginary god a little bit sooner.

I do not want to live in a one party country, but I can’t support republicans so long as they have people trumpeting this stupid bullshit. I can’t believe that they could say these retarded things and then not understand why they’re not getting elected. I would love to see some real Republican opposition to the Democratic leadership. I would like to see fresh ideas. However, fresh ideas aren’t going to come from this fuckhead and his Bible (or as I like to call it, old fasioned toilet paper). It really seems like all of the intelligent people are flocking to one political party though, and that party is NOT the Republican party.

John Shimkus is a fucking retard. If you live in his district, or you vote in his state. Send him some emails letting him know how much of a fucktard he is.

Earth Hour is Stupid

A couple of days ago, a bunch of people turned off their lights for an hour and then patted themselves on the back for helping to save the planet….

Earthday didn't seem to change much

Earthday didn't seem to change much

 

Before I start, I don’t want anyone to get me wrong, I’m not trying to keep people from trying to conserve resources. I’m not trying to discourage people being eco-friendly. I’m not even trying to discourage people from participating in Earth Hour. What I am trying to discourage is people participating in Earth Day and thinking that magically fixes everything. Earth Hour is a novelty and really nothing else. It makes very little impact and no difference on climate change.

 

Earth Hour is a nice concept, but I am against Earth Hour because it it gives many people a false sense of doing something to help solve the climate change problem. People need to acknowledge that in order to make a real impact, most of the population of earth is going to have to make some lifestyle changes. I’ve compiled what I feel is a pretty nice list.

 

1. Eat less meat.

U.N. studies have shown that the number one producer of greenhouse gasses is not transportation, it is livestock being raised to become meat. Livestock are responsible for 80% of the greenhouse gasses produced. If everyone on earth decided to eat meat half as often, emissions would be reduced 40% globally.

 

2. Drive less

If you’re going somewhere within two miles and time is not a concern and the weather is nice, just walk.

 

3. Don’t use overhead lights

Open a window. When it is dark, go to sleep or use something which is self-lighting like a laptop.

 

I realize that this is a break in my usual style of blogging, typically I would have been angry and obscenity filled, but this time I did not feel the need as I think that the Earth Hour people have their hearts in the right place. I just think that they are unintentionally misguiding people.
