Tobacco - the Cure for Global Warming

According to Global Warming Hysterics (GWH), the increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, caused by human activity, is causing the earth's average surface temperature to rise. In a decade or two, it will be hot enough to fry eggs on the sidewalks of Green Bay, Wisconsin in January.

Well, since people are the cause of this catastrophe, then the cure is to get rid of people, right? Just in time, here is a report from the World Health Organization (WHO).




From the report:

Tobacco Could Kill 1 Billion by 2100
By EDITH M. LEDERER

NEW YORK (AP) — Tobacco use killed 100 million people worldwide in the 20th century and could kill 1 billion people in the 21st unless governments act now to dramatically reduce it, the World Health Organization said in a report Thursday.

Governments around the world collect more than $200 billion in tobacco taxes every year but spend less than one-fifth of 1 percent of that revenue on tobacco control, it said.

"We hold in our hands the solution to the global tobacco epidemic that threatens the lives of 1 billion men, women and children during this century," WHO Director-General Dr. Margaret Chan said in an introduction to the report.




The problem is, WHO is recommending that all countries raise taxes to combat this and reduce the number of people who use tobacco.

So what is more important, saving the planet or saving a billion human lives?

WHO needs to get together with GWH and devise a strategy. People should be encouraged to smoke. We need fewer people, not more.

St. Augustine on Curiosity ***

There is another form of temptation, even more fraught with danger. This is the disease of curiosity... It is this which drives us to try and discover the secrets of nature, those secrets which are beyond our understanding, which can avail us nothing and which man should not wish to learn.

- St. Augustine

***10/5/2013 - Note: this is probably a misquote, for the purpose of defaming St. Augustine.  I published it without any research as to its veracity, and I regret it.  He is a revered figure in Christianity and western culture, and whether we subscribe to his philosophy and views or not, everyone deserves at least to be described accurately. - James Carr.

Lieberman Agrees: Democrat Politicians are Paranoid Assholes

"But there is something profoundly wrong—something that should trouble all of us—when we have elected Democratic officials who seem more worried about how the Bush administration might respond to Iran’s murder of our troops, than about the fact that Iran is murdering our troops. "
