Over the Doom and Gloom rants
It's been a long time between drinks. However I can only hold my breath for so long. Firstly I am over Bob and his perpetual rantings and the justification of Doom and Gloom. I am over Martin Hanson and all the others that bombard us with their crusades.
The Gizzy Herald article on Monday about the Millennials that all bugger off and leave their nylon and plastic-produced tents and furniture (made from petrochemicals) all over the planet has driven me to come out of retirement and send them a broadside.
I loved seeing all these young people enjoying our bit of paradise — a wonderful bunch of well-mannered people and I would be proud to call them rellies. They just need a reality check.
Or do they? Living the dream or living the threat of doom? Good question. I don't think they are as convinced the future is doomed as the media says they are.
“But”, they live in La La Land and it is time we put a stop to the international nonsense.
Greta Thunberg has changed her Twitter name to capitalise on a bloopa from a flaky film star; she needs a reality check. I take great exception to the cocky little bugger telling me my generation has screwed up the planet when she is burning resources like they are going out of fashion.
The jet set in Hollywood went vegetarian for their big soiree but flew their flowers in from Italy and Ecuador. Give me a break. Those jets were soiling the atmosphere like there was no tomorrow if you believe the doom merchants.
The world is being driven by nut cases from all over the planet. Takes me back to the crap that went down when we went into the new century. People spent s**t loads of money protecting their IT software and what happened? Diddly squat, that's what happened.
One day some poor bugger is going to have to stand up and admit it's all a load of bollocks — damn I feel for him/her.
No wonder the suicide rate is climbing, there is so much bad news these youngsters are getting bombarded by. Any of them who are touch on the fragile side must see bugger all that gives them confidence in the future.
Me! I feel fine, my grandees will look back on this aghast.
Just try buying a cheap waterfront property internationally and you will see what I mean. No one is buying into this bull dust of rising sea levels and un-survivable change.
Let's look after the planet like most of us already do, separate the crap from the fact, and get on with our lives. I am not in the camp of no change in the climate but I am in the “it's been happening for millennia” camp.
Please don't forward this to any of the above for comment because I am over the whole bloody lot of them, as are all my friends and acquaintances.
The world is a wonderful place and very capable of adapting to change. It's more capable than most of us are.
Happy new year and many more of them.
