Ian Rutherford Plimer (born 12 February 1946) is an Australian
geologist, academic and businessman, and professor of mining geology at
the University of Adelaide .

You will appreciate his take on climate change (aka: global warming).

Professor Ian Plimer could not have said it better!
If you've read his book you will agree, this is a good summary.

Are you sitting down?

Okay, here's the bombshell. The volcanic eruption in Iceland ,
since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED
EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2
emissions on our planet - all of you.
Of course you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to
suppress - it's that vital chemical compound that every plant requires
to live and grow, and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans, and all
animal life.

I know, it's very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon
emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and
expense of:--
driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till
midnight
to finish your kid's "The Green Revolution" science project,
throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two
squares
of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling
your
SUV and speedboat, vacationing at home instead of abroad, nearly
getting hit
every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50 cents light bulbs
with
$10.00 light bulbs . .. . well, all of those things you have done have
all gone down the tubes in just four days.

The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth's atmosphere in just four days
- yes
- FOUR DAYS ONLY by that volcano in Iceland , has totally erased every
single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon;.
And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out
this
crud any one time -EVERY DAY.

I don't really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should
mention that when the volcano Mt Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it
spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than
the entire human race had emitted in its entire YEARS on earth.
Yes folks, Mt Pinatubo was active for over one year - think about it.

Of course I shouldn't spoil this touchy-feely tree-hugging moment and
mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized
800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which keep happening,
despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.

And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud but the
fact of the matter is that the bush fire season across the western USA and
Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in
our world for the next two to three years. And it happens every year.

Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping
carbon tax on you on the basis of the bogus "human-caused" climate change
scenario.

Hey, isn't it interesting how they don't mention "Global Warming" any
more, but just "Climate Change" - you know why? It's because the planet has
COOLED by 0.7 degrees in the past century and these global warming bull
artists got caught with their pants down.

And just keep in mind that you might yet have an Emissions Trading
Scheme -
that whopping new tax - imposed on you, that will achieve absolutely
nothing except make you poorer.
It won't stop any volcanoes from erupting, that's for sure.

But hey, relax, give the world a hug and have a nice day!

PS: I wonder if Iceland is buying carbon offsets? :-( :'( :-X
:-$
