I seem to have got onto some stupid PR spam list. The latest comes from Nat Geog, and is typically silly. It sez: As you probably know, most people have a hard time seeing exactly where on the planet global warming has taken its toll. This photo gallery from NationalGeographic.com reveals global warming in action. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2007/10/photogalleries/greenland-pictures/index.html The gallery includes 8 stunning photos that illustrate how global warming has affected the beautiful country of Greenland. You might be surprised to see how the rising temperatures in the region have boosted mining and agriculture production- perhaps even enough to bring Greenland closer to declaring its independence from Denmark! Of course, a warmer climate has its devastating effects too–check out the photos yourself to see more.
Of the pix, 1 is a pretty pic of icebergs. It tells you nothing. 2 is some nice houses: if it tells you anything, its that life there is nice. 3 is hunters on the snow, 4 is some oil drums. They tell you nothing. 5 is a potato. If it says anything, it is that GW is good. 6, musk ox. Ditto. 7, some sled dogs. The pix says nothing but in the interests of balance I’ll allow the caption, which says GW is bad, maybe. 8 is some fish, and says GW is good.
Overall score: GW good: 4. GW bad: 1. GW neutral: 3. Now compare that to the text of the spam and ask yourself: what are these people up to?
