What on Earth is This?

"Earth 2100" is on ABC right now (thanks for the tip, buddy M)...this is the most bizarre thing I've ever seen on network TV. I'm watching the last 30 minutes of the 2-hour special- my Direct TV info reads "Educational/Scientists predict the consequences of inaction"

This September, in Earth 2100, a dramatic ABC News 2-hour broadcast, the greatest minds across the globe will join together in a countdown to the year 2100 to tell us what we must do to survive the next century … And what may happen if we don't

I'm watching this, my mouth agape, A scientist says that by 2100 we're going to see an "official die-off" of the human race? It's a weird cartoon show with a narrator "Lucy" talking about a fictional world in 2100 interspersed with scientists giving commentary and then there are segments on climate change, renewable energy, mass transit, smaller cars, and talk of the President's agenda with his "Green Jobs" advisor. There are talks of sacrifice comparing our need to adopt the President's energy plan NOW with the fight in WW II. The CEO of Google is featured, Tom Freidman...they are showing pictures of tiny, tiny vehicles that we could be driving in. Pictures of tiny babies who will be a "precious commodity" in the future-- like they aren't now?

Is this 1970- population control?

I've had it with these bizarre scare-tactics- the enviro-nuts are taking over! It's one thing for flipping Miley Cyrus to tell kids that the need to "Reg and Pledge" (Register and Pledge to be a Part of the Friends for Change Climate Challenge). Note Disney/ABC the same company....this is CRAZY!

And lefties like to call US Nazis??

We are officially undergoing a government Propaganda campaign- I'm starting to get scared- seriously. WHO is behind this crap?? Don't tell me this is winning ratings for the network.

You know sometimes when I get hopeful (see previous post) that people are on our side- I see this stuff and I almost want to cry, I feel like we're up against this awful machine. This is exactly how they want us to feel- defeated.

This will be all over the radio and blogs tomorrow.

Too many people, indeed... and the answer, of course, is to give the third world countries with excess population a pathway to citizenship/amnesty so they can come drain our water supplies, too. An even better idea is to spend billions to put corn in our gas tanks so it strips the soil of its nutrients all while damaging cars and getting fewer miles per gallon.

Your government at work. They waste so much money on ridiculous and destructive policy that they need a carbon tax to help pay for it.

The funny thing is that they are upset that gas probably isn't going to hit $4/gallon this year and that screws up all their plans to have "Government Motors" and Fiat (with a Chrysler badge) sell you crappy little cars that will be punted if they hit a mid-sized sedan.

Of course, the solution to low gas prices is having someone bomb Iran. Hopefully that whole can of worms can be avoided, but stranger things have happened.
