This was emailed to me. Haven’t had time to check it out. Hope it’s true. Let all the fans of Wheel of Fortune join together with Pat to expose the fraud. Pat won’t be  able to give away all the great prizes without his contestants  being  forced to  buy carbon  credits.

A Solution to Man-Made Global Warming

by Pat Sajak

There are apparently tens of millions of people around the world who are  convinced global warming is real, and mankind (particularly American mankind) is  responsible. Further, they believe utterly catastrophic results are imminent  unless we drastically alter our lifestyles — and soon. These alterations
include the things we eat, our transportation, our daily work and leisure  habits, and even the number of children we should have. The problem is there are  also tens of millions of people around the world who are skeptical of this  theory, and, despite one side’s claims the debate is settled, a significant and  growing number of climate experts keep challenging their conclusions.

So, those who believe disaster is around the corner face a dilemma: while  they’re educating their fellow citizens and demanding governments regulate  believers and non-believers alike, the problem continues, and the date of the world’s doom draws ever closer. But there is a solution. It’s relatively simple,
can begin immediately, and will change the dynamics of global warming overnight.
Instead of continuing to preach to the rest of us, the true believers need to  step forward and set an example. I’m not talking about recycling Evian bottles;
I’m talking about giving up cars and moving into smaller houses or apartments,  or even forming communes where people can live simpler, more Earth-friendly  lives. Yes, I’m talking about living the kinds of lives they want all of us to live.

Such a movement could literally start tomorrow. It would need a leader, of  course; someone who could inspire others to choose a more spartan lifestyle. The  obvious choice would be Al Gore, who already has a loyal following. If he would  eschew large homes, gas-guzzling cars, private jets and the consumption of meat,
millions more would likely do the same. If enough people joined the cause, Mr.  Gore and his followers would be able to demonstrate the results of this new way  of living in very short order. They could lead by example. They could create a
/movement/. They could have uniforms and badges and secret handshakes. The could  have their own reality TV show. In short, they could become a major force for  change. Carmakers would be driven out of business or forced to dramatically  alter their products to meet the demands of this eco-friendly Gorian tsunami.  Companies of all stripes would, similarly, have to adapt or perish.

Once the rest of us saw the presumed reversal (or at least slowing-down) of  global warming, it would do more to convince us than any lecture or study signed  by UN scientists, and it would likely add millions more to the cause. So what if  you can’t get one-hundred percent co-operation initially? Wouldn’t half (or a
third or a quarter) of the population make a huge difference if they made  substantial sacrifices? You could argue it wouldn’t be fair to have some of us  going on abusing the planet and leading our lives of consumption and gluttony  while others are putting aside the trappings of modern life, but this isn’t  about fairness; it’s about survival.

The time for talk is over. The time for action is now. Just think of millions  and millions of committed Americans making the personal sacrifices necessary to  demonstrate their resolve to combat man-made global warming. And, most  important, thanks to their efforts, theory would be replaced by fact. It’s much
easier to argue about a study than it is to refute the demonstrable results when  the temperature drops and the ocean levels stabilize. When future generations  write of the sacrifices of these men and women, they’ll use words like  “inspirational” and “heroic”.

And so, I urge the advocates for change to embark on this important mission. Do it for the children. Godspeed.

  1. A lot of people are living the green lifestyle already.
    Eg Begley, Jr., is living the green lifestyle. He even has a TV show about it.
    We have a whole green community here in Illinois, the town of Stelle.
    Everyone used to believe that the world was flat. It wasn’t, no matter how many people believed it. Global warming is happening, whether people believe in it or not.
    About Pat Sajak writing this, you really should check before posting something that is attributed to a specific person. Even if he did write it, he’s not an expert or scientist, so why would his opinion count more than others?
    I agree with you about Al Gore–I wish he would walk the walk, not just talk the talk! He SHOULD serve as a good example, but he hasn’t.

  2. Several hypotheses have emerged to explain the global warming phenomenon. Among these theories, Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) has emerged as the leading theory, which deduces that the Earth is warming due to human activity and that as a result humans will eventually destroy the planet. The AGW theory has permeated nearly every facet of modern society. Over the past few decades, scientists, politicians, marketers, and Earth lovers alike, for various reasons, have employed propaganda techniques to promote the Anthropogenic Global Warming theory; in the process, they proactively sought to curtail the exposure of the truth in order to profit from people’s apprehension of global warming.

  3. Dear Pat,
    Love your idea! But don’t hold your breath, wait, maybe you should. (It’s loaded with co2, you know.)
