Junk Science and Carbon Footprints

Quote of the day:
I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth. - Umberto Eco


Today's early morning ruminations took me to FOX news where I was greeted by another analysis of how many tons of CO2 I produced this morning when taking my shower. It's been extremely hot here the past week, not cooling down at night. I follow Al Gore's example of being carbon "neutral" by cranking my thermostat down to 65 degrees each night to get a head start on what comes later in the day, 114 degrees.  Supposedly our A/C when maxed out will offset 40 degrees, brining it down to 74 degrees during the afternoon.  (we have a son who does  not sweat due to cystic fibrosis)

Well, I digress.   Have you figured out how much your hospital produces in carbon dioxide, or your medical building? How about those ambulances and EMTs running around in those supersize fire-engines? They always seem to come in pairs.  How about a hybrid fire engine, or more realistically smaller vehicles for the initial scout vehicles??

It seems Al Gore increased his 'footprint' by 10% last year following his "nobel prize'.  This despite the fact that he exchanged his incandescent lights for 'fluorescent' eco-green friendly lights.

How about a 'hybrid personal jet' Maybe one that runs on water?? I have such a deal for you......

Al Gore should be stripped of his Nobel Prize, and his Oscar for his movie, "An Inconvenient Truth".  Inconvenience does not seem to hinder 'Big Al" from his noxious C O 2  emissons.  The people who awarded him this prize are brain dead....

Several questions remain, that haunt me each night

1. Is a carbon footprint unique....can it identify the polluter?

2. Is Al Gore missing a chromosome?

3. Is there a relationship between DNA matching and CO2 content of your body?

4. How much carbon offsets do I need to buy if I bill 66984 to remove a cataract (phacoemulsifer and operating microscope.

5. Is Al Gore missing a chromosome?

6. Is Al Gore the missing link?

7. How much CO2 would be saved if.........................

8. Is Al Gore missing a chromosome??

These things give me a headache.

Have  a great and blessed day!!!!!

Oh, I almost forgot...........what will HIT add to the carbon footprint and will HHS or CMS reimburse me for the carbon credits I must buy....are they tax deductible or will I get a tax credit.???
