Please forgive me for posting again so soon, but I could not pass this up:
One of America’s favorite whiners, Rush Limbaugh, said that, if you believe in god, then you cannot believe in climate change. Well, it’s a good damn thing I don’t believe in god because I do indeed believe in climate change, which is, no matter how ignorant Rush is, verifiable and provable, unlike his god. Rush says in this video, “We are so powerful. And we are so impotent–omnipotent that we can destroy–we can’t even stop a rain shower, but we can destroy the climate. And how? With barbecue pits and automobiles, particularly SUVs. It’s absurd.”
Ignoring the Freudian slip about his impotence, the gist of his complaint is that humans can’t control the weather, and therefore, they cannot control and are not responsible for global warming “…because man cannot control something he can’t create.” Right. We can’t redirect water, build damns, cut down trees or hunt a species into extinction. Got it. We have no control.
So we know that Rush has poor logic, but what else is he trying to tell us by tying in the whole abortion thing?
Well, it seems to me that if god puts babies in the bellies of women, then “intellectually” you can’t believe that man destroys the fetus either. I mean, like, we don’t create life, so how can we destroy it through abortion? We’re impotent, right? Or is it that Limbaugh’s omnipotent god cannot stop us from destroying both a fetus and the planet?
Maybe Rush should be listening more to John Kerry and less to those confusing folks at Fox News. Yes, Rush, we are “the safe guarders of god’s creation,” and whether god is a gray-haired old man or nature, we need all need to work together to preserve this planet for future generations of humans.
See, we’re not actually “destroying the climate,” we’re just making it less habitable for people–like your kids and grandkids.
