Ok maybe this issue actually is a little more important than flag lapel pins

by

Came across some pretty disturbing news at Rosenblumtv while trolling around the blogosphere.

Apparently we shouldn’t even be worrying about Social Security or Medicare since poop is going to hit the fans in 20 years anyway.

Rosenblum writes about James Lovelock, a scientist who recently advised us to “Enjoy Life Life While You Can.”

Let’s skip to the important parts:

“It’s just too late for it,” he says. “Perhaps if we’d gone along routes like that in 1967, it might have helped. But we don’t have time. All these standard green things, like sustainable development, I think these are just words that mean nothing. I get an awful lot of people coming to me saying you can’t say that, because it gives us nothing to do. I say on the contrary, it gives us an immense amount to do. Just not the kinds of things you want to do.”

What would Lovelock do now, I ask, if he were me? He smiles and says: “Enjoy life while you can. Because if you’re lucky it’s going to be 20 years before it hits the fan.

Lovelock estimates that 6.5 billion of the world’s 7 billion people will die and the rest of us (oh yeah, you know I’m surviving) will be stuck on desert world not much different than Luke Skywalker’s home planet.

So, candidates for president, what will you do to… ummm… keep the world from ending?
