‘Dread and Anxiety’ Over Climbit Chains

Rising Tides, Rising Profits - Public Books

See? We toldja, we toldja–just like “Planet of the Apes”!

What do you do if you’re suffering “dread and anxiety” over imaginary Climate Change? I vote for “Get a life.”

On the Firefox search page, though, “Recommended by Pocket,” is a review of a book from the Berkeley Stupid Factory, by a white upper-class Canadian dindle who’s not only freaked out by imaginary Man-Made Boo-Hoo Climate Change, but also finds a way to interweave it with Racism and Income Inequality…

Pardon me for a moment.

Sorry, I had to get that out of my system. Didn’t happen to have a barf bag handy.

And of course there’s that inevitable Noble Reason For Not Having Children. It’s never “I’d rather spend the money on myself,” or “I don’t want the responsibility,” or “What, me do all that work? Are you crazy?” No, it’s always something like “Oh, I care too much, to bring children into this no-good stinkin’ world!” Or “I don’t want to use up resources that could be given more justly to someone else.” (Where the dickens are those barf bags?)

And to complete this picture of “planetary destruction” and “a doomed world,” yatta-yatta, we are told…wait for it!… that People Of Color (POCs) will be hardest hit by the destruction of the planet.

The author also cites her fears of a “looming mental health crisis.” Well, there we agree! Look how loopy she is already. Climbit Chains propaganda and fairy tales have unbalanced a lot of people. “Ooh! Aaah! We’re all gonna die! Unless we have a global government and give it all our money and indescribably vast power over our lives! Obama! Kerry! Tooth fairy! Save us, save us!”

I really don’t want to find out what happens when idiocy reaches critical mass.

  1. Wow, Lee, you are on a roll today! This post is spot on, funny, hair-raising, and just plain dynamite. Furthermore, I read your latest NwV column early this morning, and “dynamite” was exactly the word that popped into my mind then. Wowza!

    I hope to be back later with more sedate commentary. Right now I’m taking a brief rest after cleaning the house and reaming out a sink drain, and then I have to give Iggy his lunch. If I can still move after that, I’ll give myself some lunch too.
