Even if I did believe what Algore is preaching these days, I’m still not sure this would help:
Hans Peter Niesward, from the Department of Gravitationsphysik at the ISA in Munich, says we can stop global warming in one fell swoop — or, more accurately, in one big jump.
The slightly disheveled professor states his case on WorldJumpDay.org, an Internet site created to recruit 600,000,000 people to jump simultaneously on July 20 at 11:39:13 GMT in an effort to shift Earth’s position.
Niesward claims that on this day “Earth occupies one of the most fragile positions in its orbits for the last 100 years.” According to the site, the shift in orbit will “stop global warming, extend daytime hours and create a more homogeneous climate.”
What’s even scarier is the fact that the article claims that over 600 million people have signed up for this (which the article hints is actually a hoax by some performance artist), and a check of their website says they are just slightly over the 599 million mark.
I blogged here about Cindy Sheehan’s hunger strike. Apparently, Michelle Malkin had the same thoughts I did about how long it would last. Michelle has an update.
This story is about some school system suing Google. Whatever. The important part of the story is the name of the judge who’s presiding over the case:
Here’s a good use of one’s time:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – About 150 protesters sat in front of the White House on Monday to savor their last meal before starting a hunger strike that some said will continue until American troops return from Iraq.
The demonstration marking the Independence Day holiday was organized by CodePink, a women’s anti-war group that called on volunteers to abstain from eating for 24 hours from midnight on Monday.
Some protesters said their fast would continue beyond July 4th.
Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, whose son was killed in Iraq, said she would drink only water throughout the summer, which she said she would spend outside President George W. Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas.
For once, Cindy Sheehan has my full suppport. But I give her less than a day in the Texas heat in July with nothing but water. My guess is that
