Their is of course always a serious side to any joke and to that end I have imported this item from Milton. Milton Keynes that is.
"A lot of people find graphs boring. Personally, I find them really useful. The thing I like best about them is that they allow you to instantly see patterns in huge volumes of seemingly meaningless data. Sometimes the patterns are subtle and it takes years of experience to be able to spot them, but most of the time the graph shows something so blindingly obvious that an 8 year old child could understand it, just like this graph infact.
Whats that all about then? Well if I told you that the graph is for the northern hemisphere and the black wibbly line represents the difference in temperature over the past 1000 years from the temperature in 1990 then is there anything on the graph that might concern you? If you can’t spot the problem (the bush administration refuse to), then I’ll give you a clue – look at far right of the graph, specifically the last one hundred years. The graph is commonly referred to as the "Hockey Stick Graph" and it shows a simple fact:
Global warming is real.
We are already seeing the effects.
We are hurting our Mother Earth and we are hurting ourselves. Isn’t it about time that we put aside our petty quarreling, come together as one and repair the damage that we have done.
I believe that for the first time in the history of our species we have a common enemy, those who wish to line their pockets with gold and who are willing to abuse and rape our mother in order to achieve it. If we don’t come together now and defend the planet, then she will defend herself. She loves us, but she is strong and she will not take our shit forever.
I would fight and willingly give my life to protect her. Would you?"
