We made it! We made it! The end of days came and went and we didn’t die! Civilization didn’t come to an end!
Okay, I can see I have lost you. Don’t you remember when Al Gore, former Vice President and Democratic presidential candidate, told an audience at the Sundance Film Festival on January 25, 2006, that we only had 10 years to save our planet or the glaciers would melt and flood the earth?
It was while attending a screening of his global warming film An Inconvenient Truth.
“And politicians and corporations have been ignoring the issue for decades, to the point that unless drastic measures to reduce greenhouse gases are taken within the next 10 years, the world will reach a point of no return, Gore said.”
Radio host Rush Limbaugh even had a Gore countdown clock running that now has hit zero.
“We started this ten years ago, who thinks ten years down the road, other than we knew that Gore was full of it and that whatever he was saying wasn’t gonna happen, wasn’t gonna be true. “
So, as I previously stated, the good news is that we made it! The bad news is Donald Trump has taken over the media and the Republican presidential nomination. But hey as the song says…”It’s the end of the world as we know it … and I feel fine.”Published in
