Skip to comments.Williams: Our Fragile Planet
Posted on 12/09/2013 9:52:52 AM PST by jazusamo
Let's examine a few statements reflecting a vision thought to be beyond question. "The world that we live in is beautiful but fragile." "The 3rd rock from the sun is a fragile oasis." Here are a couple of Earth Day quotes: "Remember that Earth needs to be saved every single day." "Remember the importance of taking care of our planet. It's the only home we have!" Such statements, along with apocalyptic predictions, are stock in trade for environmental extremists and non-extremists alike. Worse yet is the fact that this fragile-earth indoctrination is fed to our youth from kindergarten through college. Let's examine just how fragile the earth is.
The 1883 eruption of the Krakatoa volcano, in present-day Indonesia, had the force of 200 megatons of TNT. That's the equivalent of 13,300 15-kiloton atomic bombs, the kind that destroyed Hiroshima in 1945. Preceding that eruption was the 1815 Tambora eruption, also in present-day Indonesia, which holds the record as the largest known volcanic eruption. It spewed so much debris into the atmosphere, blocking sunlight, that 1816 became known as the "Year Without a Summer" or "Summer That Never Was." It led to crop failures and livestock death in much of the Northern Hemisphere and caused the worst famine of the 19th century. The A.D. 535 Krakatoa eruption had such force that it blotted out much of the light and heat of the sun for 18 months and is said to have led to the Dark Ages. Geophysicists estimate that just three volcanic eruptions, Indonesia (1883), Alaska (1912) and Iceland (1947), spewed more carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere than all of mankind's activities in our entire history.

Green on the outside but Red to the core
Amen...And costing us billions yearly.
“Earth is only 6 sextillion tons! We have to protect every single pound of it!”
“If every person in China stood on a high chair and jumped off it at exactly the same time, not only would that be an incredibly large high chair, but it would employ a legion of podiatrists for a decade or more to take care of all the resulting foot injuries.”
Ping. This is how it’s done. Your welcome.
In about 4 billion years, give or take, every last thing on the Earth will be burned to a cinder when the sun becomes a red giant.......
My favorite is:
Save the Earth. It's the only planet with chocolate!
But we can prevent that if we continuously give incredible amounts of money to the AlGorians!
Mr. Williams mentions the boxing day tsunami. Not only is it boxing day, it is also the start of the much celebrated (but phony) k-wanza. Thanks ron karenga. LOL! Thinking about opening a chain of stores called “The Kwanzaa Hut”. Any investors available? :>)
Every once and awhile the mask slips and the Greenies show their hideous distorted faces of Communism/Socialism/Totalitarian Progressive Dictatorship.
Amen. The old divine right of kings and aristocrats has been replaced by the inarguable "scientific" socialist imperative. The clothing is different; the insistence upon aristocracy and absolute dictatorship are the same.
I believe that’s sound advise:)
Walter E. Williams bkmk.

I stopped trying to reason with this closed mind and merely printed several pages of scientific data available on the Internet which disprove this grand lie of AGW, and tried to give it to him the next time I saw him at the range. He is the consummate democrat voter, with mind so firmly closed that he would not even read what I brought to him! And this sonofab!tch taught High School Science classes before retiring!
Global Warming caused by human behavior is a progressive's religious position, and there is no fact which will shake their faith in this lie! And being democrats, they will swallow any lie fed to them by their little bastard boy-king in the White Hut, in order to prop up the grand lie of anthropogenic global warming.
Reason cannot penetrate such idiocy. Which is why wise men like Walter Williams and Clarence Thomas and Thomas Sowell cannot get through the dissonance enslaving so many other black people and democrips in general.
Reason cannot penetrate such idiocy
That’s an excellent example of the leftist mindset and it matters not how much education they have, they only accept what fits their socialist views. Sadly this has become the norm for the people teaching in our education system, from K on up through most colleges, the environmental movement fits their socialist agenda perfectly.
Your comment on these three great black Americans is so true and it’s sad. The leftist libs make them out to be the Uncle Tom’s off the plantation when in fact their critics won’t even debate them because those critics are so outclassed.
