Global Warming - "REALLY" caused by this?
With all the recent hoopla about Global Warming, I listened to this program a few weeks ago and found it completely interesting and thought it needed further advancement! So, with the great help of SouthernLady, we've managed a little parody on the subject.
JUST HIT THE "PLAY" BUTTON ABOVE!
...PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), and the President and Founder, Ingrid Newkirk, along with a report from the UN, which states as the #1 cause of Global Warming is "factory farming of animals", or manure!
It's hard to believe this organization benefits from Federal funding! Don't get me wrong, I like animals; but, strongly disagree with these views and how I understand (or don't) the issues of global warming.
1. How many "people" are on the earth now? About 6.5 billion? Certainly, there aren't nearly as many cows and factory farming, producing nearly as much manure (BS) as us humans!
2. "Insects"--uuuuummm, don't they produce manure and methane, too? And, uuuuummm, aren't there about 40 cazillion more of them than us, or cows?
3. What about marine life? Does their methane warm the oceans???
IMO, this organization needs another mission statement. Taking care of animals is quite honorable, but leave the global warming issues to the politics of the day and to the scientists who try to compare recent data with the good ol' earth's history, which has been here through the ages, and not similarly studied and scrutinized.
---a parody? satire? comical? ---maybe just a little tropical "relief" if you'll pardon the pun!!! They say that laughter is good for the soul! lol...we hope you enjoyed it!
