I saw a great bumper sticker the other day that said, “Save the Earth.  It’s the only planet with Chocolate.”  Another good reason to be careful with our home.

Don’t get me wrong.  I believe that we, the humans here on earth, can do great damage to our planet.  I think it is wise of us to do what we can to mitigate those actions that cause harm to our planet.

I do wonder greatly, however, about the motives of the ‘leaders’ of the current, hottest (no pun intended) movement within the Environmental Movement at large, Global Warming.  Have you noticed that of late they are referring to it as Global Climate Change?  It is much easier that way to justify your position when the ‘facts’ change and a large body of evidence builds that debunks your theory of “Warming.”

Call me cynical but I am still finding it hard to believe that Al Gore is:  1.  Not a hypocrite;  2. Not the leader of a movement that has spawned more ‘junk science’ than Willy Wonka; and  3. Not, at least, partly responsible for turning over the world lead in manufacturing to the Chinese by allowing them to compete unfettered by ‘environmental regulation’ while Western nations are hobbled by laws that often make little sense.  Does it make sense to force most manufacturing activity away from the country over which we have some control to a country over which we have no control?

At least most of the good chocolate is still manufactured in the nations of the West.
