DURST: In Favor of an Ozone

It's getting warmer. Good news for you Montanans looking forward to planting backyard coconut palms. Bad news for you homo sapiens in favor of an ozone.I'm talking real warmer here. Think a big hand holding a magnifying glass somewhere between Venus and the Sun just starting to find the focus point. For a while there we were caught in a fortuitous loop. Escalating levels of carbon dioxide worked to warm up the atmosphere while escalating levels of sulphur dioxide helped cool it down. Up. Down. We were stuck in kind of a lucky crap fork there for the briefest of whiles, but now the pansy assed liberals have screwed up the pollution teeter totter.See the bleeding hearts managed to convince gullible susceptible third world nations around the world to establish tighter controls on sulfur dioxide emissions, which they trustingly did, so now there's nothing to chill out the global warming. It's our own damn fault.If only we had just left things the way they were, we'd be perfectly fine right now. Like my daddy used to say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Or if it is broke but still sputtering along like a 74 Vega running on three cylinders and a blown seal, leave it the hell alone. And perhaps hell is the operative word here. Or will be soon.Will Durst thinks there are worse things than a blown seal. A distraught sea otter for example.
