Are you sitting down?
Okay, here's the bombshell. The current volcanic eruption going on in Iceland, since it first started spewing volcanic ash a few weeks ago has, to this point, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet.
I know, I know... (have a group hug)...It's very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emissions savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up 'til midnight to finish your kid's "The Green Revolution" science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, going on vacation to a city park instead of Yosemite, nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, and replacing all of your $1 light bulbs with $10 light bulbs ... Well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just the past few weeks!
The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth's atmosphere since the eruptions began have totally erased every single effort you made to reduce the evil beast, carbon.
And, those hundreds of thousands of American jobs you helped move to Asia with expensive emissions demands on your nations' businesses... You know, the ones that are creating even more emissions than when they were creating American jobs... Well that must seem really worthwhile now.
I'm so sorry. And I do wish that there was some kind of a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud but the fact of the matter is that the brush fire season across the western U.S.A. will start in about two months and those fires will negate your efforts to reduce carbon emissions in our world for the next two years.
So... Grab a Coke, give the world a big hug and tell Al Gore to "Go to Hell!"
