On a flight to a climate change awareness rally in Chicago, an environmentalist plopped down next to a young girl reading Red Hot Lies: How Global Warming Alarmists Use Threats, Fraud, and Deception to Keep You Misinformed. Upon noticing the title, the environmentalist decided to engage the girl in conversation.
“Do you know that flights go quicker if you engage in a conversation with your fellow passenger?” asked the activist.
“So, what would you like to talk about?” inquired the girl looking up from her book.
“Oh, I don’t know. … How about anthropogenic global warming?” replied the activist.
“Okay, but I’d like to ask you a question first,” responded the girl.
“Sure, go right ahead,” said the activist.
“Horses, cows, and deer all eat grass. Yet once digested, the deer excretes little pellets, the horse large clumps, and the cow a flat patty. Now, why do you suppose that is?” inquired the young girl.
“Hmmm. … I really don’t know,” replied the activist after a few moments.
“Why then do you think you’re qualified to discuss anthropogenic global warming when you really don’t know shit?” retorted the young girl.
The activist turned away fumbling for the recline button on the armrest, and the young girl returned to reading her book.
