Default Global warming and biking

Some of us have already put our bikes away for winter and some don't have to..many years ago when dinosaurs walked the earth we had tropical weather, then some say we had a asteroid hit the earth which knocked it out of orbit and caused a large cloud of dust to fill the atmosphere and start a global winter, the ice age. Well gradually we started to warm up enough for life to come back to earth and one way or another we arrived on our motorcycles and all was well with the world..Yeah we had a few glaciers melt, a few volcanos blew their tops and we invented central heating, but all in all the world was beginning to get a bit more comfortable..

Now about 1/3 of the world has nice warm weather for the whole year round but the rest of us could do with a bit of the free central heating that we are missing out on so how did the governments convince us that global warming was not only a new thing which hadn't been going on since the ice age, but that it was a bad thing which could only be cured by paying more taxes..

Right so central Africa, where I have lived, and loved the warm climate, is getting too hot..mind you I don't hear them complaining.. here is a choice of two solutions.

All those hot country people swap land with all the cold country people and then I can have Great Britain in Kenya, spend the global warming taxes on new roads and buildings and I will be happy.

or.

Build a giant umbrella over the hot bits of the world and a mirror to reflect the sun over my cold bit..

or the governments could just admit that global warming is not a threat but a natural cycle and our governments are just inciting fear so they can claim a green tax from us to protect and pad their own wages.

I just want a few more riding days each year..

John.

I would say that was a perfectly reasonable request.

Except that you are Welsh and live in Wales. It ALWAYS rains in Wales or it is bloody cold or it is raining and bloody cold. Then again it might snow or flood, happens a lot in Wales.

Face it John, you being a Welshman is the problem. The weather is your penance for being Welsh. Gods way of telling you NOT to move to Somerset. We like our sheep to stay virgins.

Yes we do have virgin sheep in Zummerset, they are all vergin' on the edge of the fields, shitting themselves in case we get visitors from Wales.

Welshmen are not interested in ugly English sheep.

Probably because you still have enough of your own.

The Hatepe eruption around 200AD was so violent that it blocked out the sun for years and caused the few few years of the "Dark Ages" to be a bit more aptly named - the world did indeed get a bit darker. The "climate change" of this event is at least the equal to all the world's vehicular output. Green taxes, therefore, are mere opportunism for government revenue under the guise of protecting us from ourselves.
The world's climate does indeed change routinely, often killing off everything that's there and letting new species flourish and dominate. Who knows if people will survive? In the cosmic sense, we're pretty irrelevant.
Perhaps after the next reset of the climate, welshmen will have to fear packs of marauding sheep with rape on their mind.
