...for Cups â€˜O Soup and candy bars! Not to mention the other problems that Paris will encounter in the slammer. How is she going to shop? Whoâ€™s going to take car of her Chihuahua? Who will be mean to Lindsay Lohan and hang out with Britney Spears? Sure, Iraq is a big deal. Global warming is a concern. But, how can you even compare that to something as important as this? I am proud to be part of a grass-roots campaign to keep poor persecuted Paris out of jail. In a message that went up Monday on her MySpace page and reported in the New York Post, the hotel heiress writes... (more)
...owners. However, with such eminent conservatives and former environmental hedonists as Governor Schwarzenegger apparently joining the ranks of the Green, and with all the new evidence whether scientific or flat out right in front of our face, is it finally possible for those doubters of global warming to actually concede the debate and begin to lend a hand to prevent a growing environmental catastrophe? The fact is cleaning up after ourselves and removing human pollution should not intrinsically hold a political bias. Who wants to go into a wilderness where beer cans and fast food... (more)
...check. Today, they feel what it means to be the children of the worldâ€™s only superpower. Their â€œleadersâ€ borrow trillions against the future to wage inexplicable and seemingly endless wars on drugs and terrorism and gay marriage. Their â€œleadersâ€ discount global warming as myth, on the one hand, and designate â€œintelligent designâ€ as science on the other. Just as devastating as Katrina and Rita, all manner of psycho-spiritual shit is hitting the fan in America, and we all, especially young people, are feeling it. That axiom from the... (more)
...was right when he said, â€œItâ€™s not that easy being green.â€ Sunday Nightâ€™s Oscarâ„¢ awards ceremony was lauded by Leonardo DiCaprio as the first ever â€œGreen Oscarsâ„¢â€. Supposedly Hollywood is really into this whole do everything it can to stop global warming. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences even gave the Best Documentary Award to An Inconvenient Truth and Best Original Song to Melissa Etheridgeâ€™s I Need to Wake Up. Perhaps the title of that song is advice that some of Hollywood needs to take itself lest they be labeled... (more)
... movie, but the resulting article would actually be larger than this monthâ€™s issue of Vanity Fair! So for the sake of brevity, this article will be kept as succinct as possible. There is not one shred of evidence in An Inconvenient Truth that proves conclusively the so-called â€œglobal warmingâ€ theory. The fact that Al Gore stood up and declared the debate â€œoverâ€ is as laughable as the notion that 9/11 was an inside job. The movie was written from the stand-point of one individual and is biased toward that one individualâ€™s seriously misguided delusions... (more)
I donâ€™t care about global warming. There. I said it. I donâ€™t care. I donâ€™t want to hear anything more about it. Iâ€™m done. And no, Iâ€™m not going to quote experts that say that global warming isnâ€™t happening or that itâ€™s not the fault of humans. Actually, I am not going to quote any experts at all. The argument has been framed wrong. There are scientists and documentaries on one side and scientists and documentaries on the other side. Global warming and climate change has turned into the â€œhe said, she saidâ€ issue of the new millennium. Itâ€™s like a trial with no witnesses and... (more)
...business interests on six continents, including airlines, express trains, and limousine services, he is the self-made, success story of American Dream proportions. So when Sir Richard Branson announced last October, plans to invest US$3 billion of Virgin's profits over 10 years to fight global warming, it should have come as no surprise to anyone. In an interview with CNN Money, he said, â€œI used to be skeptical of global warming, but now I'm absolutely convinced that the world is spiraling out of control. CO2 is like a bushfire that gets bigger and bigger every year.â€ He says ... (more)
Last week a report on the "likelihood" that humans are to blame for global warming was released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). In their report it was found that humans are "likely" and "very likelyt" to be responsible for the Earth's increasingly warm temperatures. The authors defined the word "likely" as between 66 percent to 90 percent probable and the words "very likely" as 90 to 99 percent probable. Now after reading about all this verbal nitpicking, I was somehow reminded of the not too distant past when President Clinton was grilled on whether he had sexual... (more)
...is in session. How can people respect the law when the law doesn't respect the people? I'm not advocating for or against anything but shouldn't there be a national discourse? How many important issues are deemed too important to talk about: sex, religion, drugs, morality... with Global Warming it may not even be safe to talk about the weather anymore.
It's natural to want to stick to the clear cut talking points. I'm for curing cancer and a balance budget but those areas of gray aren't going away. Neither are the laws or the sex.
Can America's... (more)
