FAN FILM FRIDAY: An Inconvenient Truth
Calm down. Breathe into this bag. Yes, I just said that "An Inconvenient Truth," by Algore the Global Warming Gargoyle, is a fan film.
Of Kevin Costner's "Waterworld."
I confess, I haven't watched either of these turkeys all the way through, but besides being all wet, they do seem to have a lot in common--mainly they're fantasies about what will happen when and if the planet gets inundated by more water than currently exists in the closed system. Yeah, there's a lot of water locked up in glaciers, but go get a globe and look at it for a while, and try to imagine it covered in water.
Anyway, I'm feeling kinda cranky today, because my sciatica's been acting up, and I'm just about sick to death with environmentalists (with an emphasis on the "mental" part) beating me over the head with guilt about how my use of fossil fuels or incandescent lights is going to destroy the Earth. I guess the alarmists gave up on plagues, pestilence, war, and famine, so now they're after my SUV and my hundred-watt reading lamp.
Frankly, I think we just haven't been keeping records long enough to realize that the Earth operates on a much larger scale than we can imagine, and that what we see at this moment in time, is really just part of a system that takes thousands, if not millions, of years to play through. The polar ice caps on Mars are melting, too--and I suppose that's the fault of the Rovers, right?
Anyway, here's the actual fan film clip. I'm feeling generous, here's two.. Now if you'll excuse me, I gotta go to physical therapy to try to get rid of this pain in my ass...
