The Sky is Falling

Ugock and his small clan crossed the vast ice fields of the frozen north following the great herds of caribou and at night they sought shelter in the many ice caves of the enormous glaciers. Once inside they used their flint tools to build a fire to provide the warmth needed to get through the long night. As the heat from their several campfires began to warm the cave ice on the caves roof it would melt small amounts of the ice and the water would drip or run down the sides of the caves walls. This was their way of life, the nights in the caves and the days searching for the animals of the north. A cycle that continued for thousands of years. As time passed Ugock noticed the level of a nearby lake was rising. He thought about this at night while sitting near his campfire as he watched the ice melting on the caves roof with an occasional drop of water hitting him on the head. Suddenly on night he jumped to his feet, for he had discovered an absolute truth, he was causing the lake to rise. It was him and his small cave fire and the fires of other nearby clans. Next day he raised the alarm and warned all he met of the approaching danger and urged all to reduce the size and number of their cave fires, less the lake continue to rise and drown them all. The fires dimmed but the water continued to raise and eventually out of desperation sacrifices were made to the old gods. The Paleo-Indians had discovered man-made global warming. 

Now some 15,000 years later the new cave-dwellers of the sprawling canyons of metropolis have again discovered that ancient enemy of global warming and just as Ugock they are calling for the dimming of the campfires to stop the rising waters. And in time they will call for greater sacrifices to the gods of science, not the virgin sacrifices of the past (alas, no more virgins), but instead, the sacrifice of "our way of life". The sky is falling again and the Chicken Little's of the world are sounding the alarm!

Like the virgins who were forced against their will to "sacrifice", so are we being forced. It has already started.

Obama has been yelling the sky is falling everyday since he took office---when will people look up and see the truth.

I'll bet Ugock was the first Democrat! They're all Neanderthals, after all! :)

Interestingly enough, I don't think Obama even cares if Global Warming is real. It's all about pushing his agenda. He needs to create fear to give reason to raise taxes in order to pay for his programs and agenda he wants to create. http://tiny.cc/EItnn

Very interesting analogy though. I will definitely pass this along...

Cavedwellers, I like that! These people must be living in caves if they believe that they can affect the world's temperature.

Waxman, Pelosi, Reid, Obugger et al know global warming is a con. It's all about transferring power from you to them. The also know government health care won't improve our lives, but it sure as hell will improve their place among the Masters of the Universe.

It's always about power...never about "doing good" or "saving the future of our children" or caring, as Hillary said the other day, "about human achievement" -- unless, of course, it's a Democrat achievement.

Thanks for the comment over my way, Ron. I'm blog rolling you now.

I'll agree with Chad Michaels on this one. Hussein and Gore want power. The only other thing that matters is that if we all use too much oil they might not have enough for their private jets.

A very apt parable.
While the Copenhagen junket continues, the tribal elders are desperately trying to save face, although we, their masters, have seen through their pretence.

Halve emmissions by the year 2050 is likely to be the catch cry, and such a target is simply another way of waving the white flag of surrender to the scpetical world.

Thabk God we at least have this form of communication to prick the green left pretence.

Kia kaha.
