Futility of Envirowackoism

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20070407/sc_afp/solomonsquakeisland

Just thought I'd toss this one out there. For all those people who take environmentalism so seriously and think we're going to save the planet and all that crap, well, guess what? The planet doesn't seem to care one bit about preserving precious coral reefs. It didn't care that all you crazy people out there spent years, even decades, of your pathetic lives caring for it. Destroyed in 60 seconds by a killer quake. Perhaps you should go find something more productive to do now?

Ah, your heartlessness knows no bounds, my master. We salute you and your reality pile driver!

       
In other news, the sun's going to die sooner or later, too.

Well, that killed MY motivation for the day.

...oh wait.

(The editorial board would like to remind prospective authors that their point is made better by highlighting environmentalists saying stupid things, rather than people going "Wow, this island sure did get fucked.";)

       
Ah, but a true environmentalist would point out that the killer earthquake involved destroyed the coral reef due to a natural balance rather than man's interference.. or some other similar line of bull...

       
The point being the idiots spent their lives trying to protect the reef from man's destructive ways only to have the planet turn them all into moronic fools. And eventually the forces of nature will do the same with the rest of it.

       
You really are missing the point on this one, Fearless Leader. Just because Gaia will eventually ruin everything herself doesn't really give men an excuse to run around doing it first. Wait until we're colonizing other solar systems to destroy the planet, kthx.

       
I don't think that Gaia will eventually destroy everything herself, unless we're talking about the event of our sun burning out, it's all part of the natural cycle. Eventually what exists today will be naturally replaced with or without man's influence. On the other hand, I'd have to agree that it'd be helpful if we could postpone the destruction of this planet until we've moved on to another, or at least until after my natural existance ends... :P

       
Don't worry Conner. We'll all be dead and buried before mankind can do anything remotely close enough to damage this planet beyond recovery. But then, who's to say it's not already in recovery? I've heard a theory that states the current climate warmup we're experiencing is a recovery from the catastrophic damage done during the last major asteroid impact that took out the dinosaurs.

If you stop and think for 2 seconds, it should be clear why that makes sense. They are pumping out crude oil in the arctic circle. What is oil? Plant life that's been dead for millions of years. Do you see any plant life up there now? No? How about in the deserts of Saudi Arabia? No? Well the shit had to be there at some point. This planet was once a tropical world, and I'm convinced it's returning to be that again. Nothing we do short of nuclear armageddon will change that. Cutting our emissions might delay it by 50 years, but 50 years is nothing in planetary terms.

       
While I believe it's true that mankind's effect on the Earth's geosystem is probably minimal at best, I also feel it necessary to say that your stance is very republican and upsets me.

Then again, things like smog are second nature to you. The air here is clean.

       
Honestly, it's not mankind's general effects on the environment that concern me, it's that nuclear armageddon you mentioned... and the very fact that it is a real possibility in this age. *shrug*

Sure, the real major players in the world today are far beyond even bothering to use it as a threat, but what about the wack-jobs out there who also have access to nuclear devices that they could use to trigger events beyond reason? Adn don't bother telling me that's not real, I don't believe it for a second. The technology exists and is not held only be those ever so upstanding folk on Capitol Hill and in Moscow, etc... not that I really trust either of those groups that thoroughly either...

On the same subject, yet another waste of time. Go to all that trouble for a bunch of rabbits, release them into the wild, only to have them become hawk and wolf food. You just gotta love it.

Whir, if you're just now noticing how "republican" my views are, you really haven't been paying attention. This also has nothing to do with smog. Which btw, we don't have nearly the problem we did before. I'm not opposed to clean air and water. I'm just opposed to the fanatical worship of the environment by crazy people on the left who think we should ruin our entire economy for the sake of some dumb coral and rabbits. Especially when nature destroys them both when given half a chance.

Conner, the wackjobs are exactly the right thing we should be wary of. They do carry a huge potential for destruction of not just our environment, but our species as a whole through nuclear annihilation. The sooner the left wing boneheads realize this and start helping us to do something about it, the more time they'll have later to worry about the rednecks pissing in the pond where the rare fish lives.

       
But that rare fish might hold the secrets to the cure for cancer, or aids, or radiation poisoning. :P

       
I just get anti-rad off of corpses.

       
Been playing Fallout: Tactics? :P

       
That's been a regular thing in all of the Fallout games really. Handy stuff too, if you like wandering the radiated wastes.

       
Yeah, but I hadn't been able to play the first two of the Fallout series since I switched from Win2k to WinXP, even Fallout: Tactics gives me headaches trying to get it installed and running under WinXP.. anyway, it's been long enough that I really don't think much about the first two at all anymore.

       
S.T.A.L.K.E.R - Shadows of Chrenobyl, actually. Just finished the good ending on veteran a few hours ago. Gets pretty rough for a while. ~_~

Yet another fine example of nature's indifference to its own. Futile. Waste all that time saving all those animals just to have the sea bloom toxic algae to kill them all. They'll never learn.
