Letter: Global-warming hysteria

Scientists all over the world agreed that the world would be in chaos during Y2K. People withdrew all their money from banks and buried it in their backyards. They also believed the airplanes would fall out of the sky due to computer failures.

Scientists the world over also agreed that we would all fry because the hole in the ozone was getting bigger and bigger, and then small and smaller, and then it got bigger again.

From The Western Slope Watchdog:

“Global cooling predicted by scientist”

“John Casey, president of the Space and Science Research Corporation, predicted in late February that the world was going to experience 20 years or more of global cooling.

“Casey’s research indicates that solar cycles, not concentrations of carbon dioxide, control climate change on the Earth.

“Protestors who believe in global warming held signs and shouted outside the Energy Expo as Casey was speaking.

“Casey believes that more volcanoes and earthquakes will occur as the Earth cools.

“Astrophysicists acknowledge that the sun has been burning hotter for the past 60 to 100 years, and is entering a more normal, cooler period of its cycle.”

And the Kool-Aid drinkers shouted in unison, “Burn the witch, burn the witch, burn the witch.”

If you disagree with the global-warming people, this is what they shout at you, like they did in the 1680s in Salem.
