Yesterday, the British Gazette reported upon the Warmists declaring that human obesity is a threat to the planet. Our commentary included a “tongue in cheek” response including the mention of our fellow Leeds resident, the delightful Nell McAndrew.
We had assumed that this piece of idiocy complied by the academics at Robert Gordon University at Aberdeen must have qualified for the Order of the Wooden Spoon for Stupidity.
It seems however our friends on the other side of the pond could not allow we Brits to hold this particular prize for long, and in the traditional spirit of transatlantic competition felt they, “….had to outdo the Limey’s……”
Well they most certainly have succeeded:
A certain Shawn Domagal-Goldman and his colleagues at Pennsylvania State University have produced a report which states upon other things; “……. Green” aliens might object to the environmental damage humans have caused on Earth and wipe us out to save the planet. This scenario gives us reason to limit our growth and reduce our impact on global ecosystems. It would be particularly important for us to limit our emissions of greenhouse gases, since atmospheric composition can be observed from other planets……”
British Gazette comment: Presumably this is why they are called, “little green men” – and we thought it had something to do with skin colour! How racist is that! Words fail us!
