The Global Warming Ice Bucket Challenge

August 20th, 2014 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D.

ice-bucket-challengeThis ALS ice bucket challenge thing seems to be very successful in raising money for ALS research.

Or is it raising awareness? Iím not sure. Maybe both.

I think itís now time to raise awareness of global warming. After all, if we didnít tell people about it, they would never know, right? We would instead have to actually experience global warming ourselves, rather than measure alleged temperature changes of tenths of a degree over a period of 50 years.

So, you have two choices. Either (1) pour a bucket of ice water over your head, which will require the wasting of the extra energy needed to freeze the water thereby making global warming even worse, or (2) donate $100 to Greenpeace to help make sure millions of poor people canít avoid blindness or death by having access to Golden Rice.

Oh, wait. Maybe thatís not such a good ideaÖ

How about donate $100 to your favorite mainstream media outlet, since they are having so much trouble convincing the public that Al Gore was right about Manbearpig after all?

Or donate the $100 to Al Gore directly, since he is allegedly being cheated out of millions of dollars of Big Oil money from his sale of Current TV to Al Jazeera. Poor guy. ūüôĀ

So, show everyone you care about global warming! Dump some ice water on your head!

(But don’t use any from the Arctic Ocean! There’s almost none left there anyway!)

Humanity is depending on you!
