TAKE IT FURTHER
The planet (Earth … you know, this one) is overheating and cooking up. All the polar bears are running around in small circles looking for some ice, any ice, to rest on. Seals likewise, they can’t head any further north or south for refuge from the stifling heat and boiling waters. Walruses are even casting themselves from high places rather than haul themselves out onto tummy tickling bare rocks … etc etc … endlessly. Frightening, isn’t it?
But don’t fret, salvation is at hand if you’re prepared to make a few tiny sacrifices:
Frightening? It’s meant to be. We used to call it propaganda but these days it’s referred to in awed tones as ‘science’. But—
I think (disclaimer alert: that’s a very personal “I” there) I think that we are looking at a new religion. In effect a variant of that line in Kipling’s poem “If” that reads to the effect
“If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools”
—and on this polarising* topic of ‘Anthropogenic Global Warming’ I beg you look at the lessons of history, and learn from them.
I’m off now to have a quick word with God, to beg Him not put me down for seal or walrus in my next incarnation (apparently ‘vulture’ will be marvellous).
* Polarising … get it? (Oh, I SLAY me!)
