Global Warning

Rich Galen

Monday, April 16, 2007



  • " Union of Concerned Scientists ..." Here's a link to the web page dealing with ocean warming.

  • " Schwarzenegger in NY ..." Here's a link to the NY Sun piece on Schwarzenegger's appearance at the Council on Foreign Relations.

  • " Europe and Warming ..." Here's the link to the AP piece on the effects of Global Warming on Europe.

  • " Soylent Green ..." A 1973 film which starred Charlton Heston and Edward G. Robinson.

    From the IMDB web page:

    A tale of Earth in despair in 2022. Natural food like fruits, vegetables, and meat among others are now extinct. Earth is overpopulated and New York City has 40 million starving, poverty stricken people. The only way they survive is with water rations and eating a mysterious food called Soylent.

    A detective investigates the murder of the president of the Soylent company. The truth he uncovers is more disturbing than the Earth in turmoil when he learns the secret ingredient of Soylent Green.



    Mullfoto of the Day


    I found my camera. Or, more precisely, The Lad found it.

    This is an in-game photo from Sunday, April 8, 2007 at RFK Stadium during the game between the Washington Nationals and the Arizona Diamondbacks.

    Note that D-Backs catcher Miguel Montero is wearing a stocking cap because the game time temperature was 45 degrees with a 16 miles per hour wind for a wind chill (according to the NOAA Wind Chill Calculator) of 38 Degrees.

    I understand the polar ice caps are melting; but they're not melting in Washington, DC. Here are the projected low temps for the next five days in Your Nation's Capital: 38,38,38,40,41.

    Catchy Caption of the Day

    Actual Caption:

    A giant Galapagos turtle walks along the Charles Darwin Station in Ayora port.

    Experts say tourism, overpopulation and non-native species are threatening the ecosystem of the Galapagos Islands, the archipelago which inspired Darwin's theory of evolution.

    I've often wondered whether or not those so-called "Ecology Tours" were destroying the very thing which the Ecology Tourists paid a fortune to see. The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle at work - again.
