My vote is BS. I'm old enough to remember the 70's. I'm old enough to remember Jimmy Carter and the sour economy, fuel shortages, and all that fantabulous stuff that these new hard left, kook fringe, fanatics haven't heard of and couldn't care less to learn about. I'm also old enough to remember the fear mongering on the left called Global Cooling caused by...you guessed it man made holes in the ozone! Those darned rockets NASA kept sending into space were tearing holes in the ozone! And the use of all that hairspray, chlorofluorocarbons in them, just made it bigger. Those huge assed fuel guzzling cars the poor insisted on driving...wait not the poor! The rich! yeah that's it, the rich, the poor were just too ignorant to know any better!
Don't forget to wear sunscreen and sunglasses because the sun is stronger now because of all the mess the evil Americans have made of the atmosphere.
So what do you think the cure was? Plant trees, recycle, carpool, fine any industry that was polluting, stop building oil refineries and did I mention plant trees? Today it's called carbon offsets, also known as complete and utter BS.
The only good that came out of all that mess was water and air quality was improved. And a new REPUBLICAN President named Ronald Reagan. Everything else was a disaster. Fuel rationing led to long lines and high prices at the pump and ungodly electric bills.
When I was young I believed it because it was on the news. If it was on the news then it had to be correct. Now, I don't believe a bit of what I hear or see unless I research it myself first. My kids are learning the same thing. Just hang on another 25 years and my oldest son will take the US by storm just in time for another global climate change scare only he knows what's up with all this garbage and knows to take the trash out!
