When I went around to the barnyard to look in on Henny-Penny, founder and recording secretary of The Holy Order of The Sky is Falling (Al Gore, Pontiff), I found her pacing about, with a steely look in her eyes.
Me: You don't look happy.
Ms. H-P: I'm not. I'm a free-range chicken and I am ranging this yard to think out a solution to a new threat to the human race. One of the Pontiff's people just called to tell me about a molecule that people overdose on and die of every day. We'll have to get the EPA to do something about it.
Me: What's the molecule?
Ms.H-P: Dihydrogen monoxide.
Me (stifling a laugh): Sounds toxic, but that's actually just another name for good old H20, water.
Mrs. H-P: Are you sure? That would be a great relief, but why would the Pontiff's people become so alarmed?
Me: As we've discussed before, your Pontiff believes a lot of things that aren't true. You'll recall his recent interview on National Public Radio when he said the temperature at the core of the earth is "millions of degrees." If that were true, the planet would have burned to the size of a charcoal briquet eons ago. The sun's temperature is only about 10,000 degrees.
Ms. H-P: I hardly know what to believe any longer.
Me: Here's something you can believe and it's good news, for it means that your worries that the sky is falling and that the planet is warming at an alarming rate may soon be over. As you know, The UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the IPCC, every six years publishes a report that's supposed to be an authoritative assessment of scientific evidence of climate change.

Sarah Palin and George Bush are stupid, but Hussain Obama is the most intelligent man in the world
These guys (idiots) are leading us all to disaster.
But hey, that’s just me
