He Finally Got It?
Oh, I guess not.
I was surprised to see the subject line in an e-mail I received yesterday, via the Redwood Peace and Justice Center e-mail list, the words Global Cooling. At first I thought the guy who sent it, Arcata's lefty activist Fhyre Phoenix, might have finally realized that there is another line of thought in regards our climate; that being some climatologists think we may be moving towards another ice age (as was the prevailing theory back in the late 60s and early 70s).
Nope. I suppose that was too much to hope for. Instead, he was announcing a series of booklets he's developing for use at various levels of society suggesting ways individuals, communities and government can combat global warming by their own direct actions. He asks for suggestions. Two examples he uses are:
For example, municipalities may pass ordinances to:
· Ban the sale of non-florescent light bulbs.
· Require that all asphalt rooftops be painted white within two years.
Intersting ideas, the second one being a bit amusing, as well. Frightening also, in that people like myself would be required to pay every so many years to repaint their rooftops should his idea catch on in the right circles.
But, if you feel like joining in his project, send your suggestions to him at:
P.O. Box 5082
Arcata, Calif. 95518
If nothing else it might be fun seeing just what other kind of "solutions" end up on his list after he's done with it.
