The polar bears are in danger, according to whom? I use them as an example because that's the point that got Gore so flustered at a news conference weeks ago that he acted like a complete idiot (again). WHen asked by a reporter if he wished to revise his statement that polar bears were dying when, in fact, their numbers were increasing, Gore attacked the reporter verbally to get away from the question and eventually had the reporter tossed out of the news conference. I guess somebody forgot to tell the polar bears they were in danger, since they keep frolicking and reproducing.
Arrogance? Just the opposite, my friend. I'm not arrogant enough to believe that man can make a difference in the face of Mother Nature. We have only been around a few years, while the world has gone on for billions without us. The eruption of Krakatoa spewed more dust and ash in the atmosphere than humans can do in a century, according to reports. It was also reported that, when Hussien set fire to the Kuwait oil fields, the ecological damage would last for decades. Less than five years later, the atmosphere was all cleaned and back to normal. Mother Nature knows exactly how to take care of herself. Arrogance is little humans holding up aerosol cans or driving their SUV's thinking they make the difference.
Arrogance is also get-rich quick schemers and world governments believing that people are so stupid that they will believe anything, in order to impose more controls and higher taxes on the population. Of course, they have used that ploy for centuries. That's why virgins were sacrificed to appease the Sun god, along with goats, sheep or what have you, going back to the beginning of man's time on earth. People have always gotten others to believe they must sacrifice something in orfer to appease the gods, Mother nature, or any other supernatural forces. Of course those doing the convincing always seemed to get some benefit from those sacrifices. We are no different than those who came before. Our leaders and charlatans don't require the same sacrifices (not because of a pronounced lack of virgins) but because now we are more "enlightened" and don't believe in cutting sheep necks or sacrificial lambs. No, our leaders now just use restrictions, taxes, fear and guilt trips to get the job done. You see fear in the video? Congrats....you are proof they have done their job well.
