Dave and Blarney Discuss the Weather

Dave: Hi, Blarney. What are you up to?

Blarney: Hi, Dave. I’m heading to a protest march about high gas prices.

Dave: I thought you wanted gas prices to be higher.

Blarney: Whatever gave you that idea?

Dave: Don’t you want to reduce man-made carbon emissions?

Blarney: Absolutely. We need to do everything we can to reduce man’s impact on Global Warming.

Dave: Well, don’t high gas prices force people to drive less and therefore emit less carbon from their autos?

Blarney: Well, yes. But it’s all Bush’s fault.

Dave: The high gas prices or the fact that people drive?

Blarney: Yes. Bush should have ratified Kyoto.

Dave: And that would have lowered gas prices?

Blarney: Well, no. But it would have averted catastrophic man-made global warming like we have now.

Dave: You do know that the globe has not warmed since 1998, right? In fact, April 2008 was the coldest April in a long time.

Blarney: Well, experts say that is only a temporary lull.

Dave: But don’t you believe that the primary factor in global warming is enhanced C02 emissions? What is causing the lull?

Blarney: I, uh …

Hey Rick. Funny guys, Dave and Blarney. Short, sweet & insightful.

Yes, it was. Guess what?
The oceans pump more CO2 into the atmosphere than man does. And don't get me started on the Rain Forests!

And have you heard about the study in Europe that says Germany is now warmer than it would have been --- wait --- because of clean air?
