My kids and their friends at school will celebrate Earth Day with a spring science project. They will plant flower seeds, tomato and other vegetable seedlings to commemorate the occasion. That kind of commemoration of Earth Day, I can live with.
I don't know of anyone who doesn't want to live in a place with clean air, clean water and green surroundings. But the fear-mongering by radical environmentalists about man-made global warming is just too much for me. What are a few inconvenient facts, like the earth is in fact cooling instead of warming during the last decade, and that the Antartic ice is growing instead of melting to these global warming mongers?
For those who blame man as the main cause for global warming, one way they can help, is to remove themselves from the face of the earth. That would help the planet, won't it? To hear them say it, every little thing we do to help the planet helps, right?
On this Earth Day, I recommend two common-sense editorials from Investor's Business Daily. Firstly, The Late Great Planet Girth, and secondly, Save Capitalism. If you have the time, I recommend all their past editorials on the subject of global warming.
Happy Earth Day, and stop worrying that the Earth is on the precipice of man-made disaster. It is not.
