About Me

A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

When does the alarmism end?

At first I thought of the boy who cried "wolf", but in that story a wolf eventually showed up. So maybe "Chicken Little" is more apt. Found this via at ;

LONDON: The oceans are becoming acidic at a faster rate than at any time in the past 65 million years, threatening marine life and food supplies, according to a new study.

Researchers from the University of Bristol found that when ocean acidification accelerated, it caused extinction at the bottom of the food chain.

The current acidification was being caused by carbon dioxide from cars and factories, which was absorbed by the water.

Since the Industrial Revolution, acidity in the seas has increased by 30 per cent.

The last time such a fast change occurred was thought to be 65 million years ago, when a natural event caused ocean acidification.

The study looked at sediment from about 55 million years ago, when acidification was occurring. It found widespread extinction of tiny organisms.

Andy Ridgwell, the lead author of the paper, published in Nature Geoscience, said acidification was occurring much faster today than in the past, ''exceeding the rate at which plankton can adapt'' and threatening the basis of much marine life. This would mean fish and other creatures further up the food chain that humans eat may be affected as soon as the end of this century, he said.

So let's see, thanks to the over educated morons who have access to major media outlets, we've been through scares involving global warming, swine flu pandemic, avian flu pandemic, Y2K, overpopulation, and global cooling. These are just the few I can call to mind right off the bat.

But my favorite has always been the prophecy of California sinking into the ocean back in the late '60's. Remember that one? The cult responsible bought future waterfront property in Arizona and no, I'm not making this up. I'd guess a modern corollary would be the current flap over the Mayan calendar ending in 2012.

Can anybody think of anything else? Maybe we can start a board game and call it "Name That Panic". Kind of like Trivial Pursuit.
