For a couple years now at least, I have referred to environMENTALISTS that squawk on and on about man made global warming as "The Church of Climatology". EnviroMENTALISTS had taken their rhetoric to a level that can only be compared to that of the TV evangelist. So, when I discovered this one, I was not surprised in the least.
Green Bible creates controversy
In this day and age, you can buy a Bible aimed at almost any demographic imaginable.
There are Bibles for everyone from toddlers to teenage girls to recovering addicts. There are even Bibles on disc, narrated by James Earl Jones and Johnny Cash.
But it's the recently published Green Bible that is causing a stir in the religious community.
Supporters of the book, which highlights verses related to what believers call "God's creation" and his desire for humans to protect it, say they hope it will encourage more Christians, particularly evangelicals, to embrace environmentalism. [...]
I knew it was bound to happen. I am just surprised that they based it on the King James Bible and did not just make up one of their own liking.

or at least you would think it did... Anne Murray released this song in 1983. It could easily be released today and everyone would think it was about current events... How sad... (Where is Bryant Gumbel now? Does anybody care?)
Will we ever learn?
OH yea... Almost forgot... A little good news
A long time ago, when the UK was still green,
There were more kinds of animals than you've ever seen;
They'd run around free while the earth was being born,
The loveliest of all was the Unicorn.
They re-introduced beavers and pointy eared lynx,
Some big brown bears and some black ones I think,
Some deer and elk and timber wolves, but sure as you're born,
They still can't find no Unicorns.
[...] For true rewilders, the real aim is to restore all lost species – including dangerous ones. Peter Taylor, a founder of the Wildland Network, which campaigns for the reintroduction of larger creatures, said: “The most wild experience available for a human becomes the unarmed walk into territory where humans are not only not in control, but also not the top predator. That frisson of risk and vulnerability marks the transition from a tame landscape to a truly wild one.” [...]

It is making its comeback. Why is a totally different question and I doubt anyone can truly answer that one...
Disco fever is back
Why do I post this old Pepsi commercial you ask...
Well let me tell you a little story...
This morning I made myself a nice breakfast. Two eggs over easy, 4 Johnsonville maple sausages, hash browns with onion and four slices of whole wheat toast. As I sat down to eat I realized my coffee cup was empty so I went back into the kitchen to get a refill. I was out of sight of my food for all of 20 seconds... When I returned with a full cup of joe, my breakfast had miraculously disappeared. Beside the table sat my faithful lab with a very guilty look on her face. Unfortunately for Roxy(the lab), I don't have a cat! She has never done anything like this before and she had better not ever do it again...
To quote Ryuzo Kikushima. "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve."
Seriously. Is there a single brain cell anywhere in the collective known as Hamas? What do you expect is going to happen when you randomly launch a couple hundred mortars and rockets at your heavily armed neighbour?
What do they call it when you continue to do the exact same thing over and over and expect to get a different result?
Reminds me of a few kids I knew growing up...
Update: 5:15 pm... Not one harsh word was spoken while Hamas fired rocket after rocket into Israel. Israel retaliates and boom...
International community calls for end to violence in Middle East
And as if they were reading the comment section of this blog...
Farid Ayad, a Toronto-area community leader who represents about 12,000 Palestinian-Canadians under the organization Palestine House, called the strikes "outrageous" and characterized them as an act of "genocide."
Same old story, same old song and dance.

They sit back in their boardrooms, trying to devise ways to put the fear into the general public. "The sky is falling" is their drug. Climate change was faltering and fewer subjects were falling for this false science. They needed something new.
A recession, naaaah, that is so 1980's. What we need is a good dirty thirties style depression. Yes, that is what we need for sure. A few months of doom and gloom regarding the economy and TADA! Here we are... at least in the minds of the public. It does not matter what the facts are, as long as the perception is there.
Canadians are adopting a bleak recessionary mood, even though the numbers are not that grim, an economist says.
The Conference Board of Canada reported Monday that its index of consumer confidence has reached the lowest level since the recession of 1981-82. Yet the actual economic indicators are not that bad in Canada, compared with the United States, Europe and Japan, said Glen Hodgson, senior vice-president and chief economist.
"The bad news is out there," but now "it's become very personal," he said.
The index fell for the third month in a row in December, dropping 3.3 points to 67.7. The lowest point was 63 in the recession of 1981-82, Hodgson said. In the board's system, the index was at 100 in 2002.
The psychology of bad times is reflected in consumers' expectations that they will be worse off six months from now. "Respondents also viewed the job situation in their communities negatively," the board said.
Yet the latest employment statistics, for November, show that the country added 133,000 jobs in the first 11 months of 2008. [...]
Good going media. Job well done... Can't wait to see what you will come up with next. Global cooling perhaps?
