Mount Rushmore Trying to Increase Cooling

Mount Rushmore officials are trying to increase the cooling trend. South Dakota has a summer cooling trend since 1930 through 2009 (-0.23 degrees per decade) and yet they are stoopid enough to try to prevent warming by turning off their lights for 1 hour.

"Mount Rushmore officials said Thursday that the national memorial will participate this weekend in what they called "the largest call for action on climate change in history." From 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Saturday [March 27], some lights will be turned off at the national memorial as part of Earth Hour 2010."

What you can do:
1. Drive to Mount Rushmore by Saturday March 27 8:30pm
2. Keep your engine running and point your car so the headlights are directed at Mount Rushmore

Get Out Your Thimbles

James Hansen thinks we only need thimblefuls to prevent the coming ice age.

"If there were no humans on the planet, the long term trend would be toward colder climate. Another ice age cannot occur unless humans go extinct, or unless humans decide that they want an ice age. However, ‘achieving’ an ice age would be a huge task. In contrast, prevention of an ice age is a trivial task for humans, requiring only a ‘thimbleful’ of CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons), for example."

What you can do:
1. Get out your thimbles
2. Fill them with CFCs
3. Throw them up in the air

James Lovelock Says It's Good

"Climate-change expert Dr James Lovelock says the greenhouse gases that have warmed the planet are likely to prevent a big freeze that could last millions of years. He said: “We’re just fiddling around. It is worth thinking that what we are doing in creating all these carbon emissions, far from being something frightful, is stopping the onset of a new ice age."

We need to prevent the next ice age.

Things you can do to help:
1. Drive your car more.
2. Print copies of the IPCC reports and burn them
