In this PC world is it still OK to call some environmentalist TREE HUGGERS?

I have been thinking a lot about the term “Man-made Climate change” lately.  I hear the gloom and doomers say the world is on the road to destruction because of what we are doing to Mother Nature.   Well the last time I looked WE ARE PART OF NATURE!

However I will say we need to be better to our planet.   I fear the pollution that clogs our air here in Cache valley with the inversion.  I worry about the water supplies we have here in the west.  We are growing in population but little is being done to increase water supplies and as you know we have had drought conditions, yet I see sprinklers on during a rain storm and sprinklers watering the sidewalk more that the lawn.  I foresee a time in the not so distant future some harsh laws to ensure we have water for all of us.

One aspect that I hear a lot about is the term global warming and how it is affecting.   I am not so sure about that and here’s’ why.  Last year it was cold and we were dumped on by snow.  Then this year warmer than normal and dry.  Every summer it gets hot and some summers are really hot year just a few years ago during the Cruise in the temps were in the low to mid 80’s.

One more thing this week was very pleasant on a weather report that said the high temperature was 84 but not near as warm as the record high of 93 back in 1923!   It is things like this that make me wonder.  I have seen 18 inches of snow in Memphis TN in March.  Snow on June 12th of 2002 here in Logan, so I hope you see that in my feeble mind I question some of the knee jerk reactions I hear on the news.   Yes I want a cleaner environment but sometimes I just wish the gloom and dormers would give solutions instead of fear tactics.

Remember this the comments on this blog are mine and mine alone they are my thoughts and observations over the years.  I am not the brightest most educated person you have ever met but I ain’t ignorant, our as we spell it on the air I-G-N-R-T.

Here are some random thoughts from this week that we didn’t talk about.

A new study says that eating a lot of pasta, potatoes, or rice can actually help you LOSE weight!!!!!! Fill you up, so you’re less likely to snack on junk food.  So you end up consuming fewer calories overall.

So here’s the question:  If you could eat ANY food every day without suffering the consequences, what would it be?  Here are the 5 most common answers people gave in a new survey . . .

  1. Pizza.
  2. Burgers.  That is me
  3. Ice cream.
  4. Mexican food.
  5. Chocolate.

Then a Dr in the UK says if you hater vegetable and you still need that nutrition all you need is one begin in your diet and that is Broccoli why? Because broccoli promotes healthy gut bacteria, which helps your immune system.  And healthy gut bacteria has even been linked to a lower risk of mental-health issues.
