Glenn Beck Has Gone A Bridge Too Far On Global Warming

By Environment Man

Fox News Channel impresario Glenn Beck has finally gone a bridge too far in attacking global warming. I would like to inform GB that humanity cannot put an unlimited amount of gaseous emissions into our roughly 90 mile high atmosphere without serious negative consequences. Ninety miles GB. That is about from New York City to Philadelphia (81 miles). I hope that puts it in perspective for you. Just think of all those emissions from power plants and vehicles pumping it 24/7/365. I ask you: do you think we can pump that thin layer of atmosphere with an unlimited amount of gases without significantly altering the climate? Now go ahead and crack a joke.

But it aint funny to asthmatic children and elderly with breathing trouble. Global warming cooks up a hotter and more toxic smog.

Sea level rise is a real threat to our capitalist system. Do you know how much of American infrastructure is along our coasts?

You won't get a nuclear renaissance without acknowledging the threat posed by climate change.

Crack another joke Glenn. But we aint laughing with you. We're laughing at you this time. You have gone a bridge too far. And not in a plug-in fuel cell hybrid electric M1-A1 Abrams tank either.
