Well, it looks like Al Gore has got people thinking about global warming in a myriad of different ways. I was surprised to find two articles on the subject in yesterday's Taipei Times: Inuits take climate case to human rights tribunal and Employ alien technology to solve climate change, says former Canadian minister. Yes, the world continues to be an interesting place.
The first article was about the Inuit taking their concerns about climate change to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. They're tired of watching their snowmobiles disappearing beneath the ice in January and claim that global warming is destroying their traditional way of life.
The second was about remarks made by Canada's former Defence Minister, Paul Hellyer. He was Canada's defence minister in the 60's under Pearson and started the Canada Action Party in 1997. Thirty years before he inaugurated the UFO landing pad in St. Paul, Alberta and a few years ago went public with his beliefs that we are not alone. He also believes that the US government has been hoarding alien technologies for years and it's time they shared what they know for the good of the planet.
"I would like to see what [alien] technology there might be that could eliminate the burning of fossil fuels within a generation ... that could be a way to save our planet," Paul Hellyer, 83, told the Ottawa Citizen.So, who will be the ones to step in and fight global warming, the Inter-American Commission of Human Rights or the Galactic Federation? The sad thing is that if I had to choose which tactic will probably do more to save our planet, I'd have to go with the Hellyer and the little green men.
"We need to persuade certain governments to come clean on what they know. Some of us suspect they know quite a lot, and it might be enough to save our planet if applied quickly enough," he said.
Links between the Inuit and extraterrestrials have already been quite well documented in the Nunutsiaq News and the Weekly World News.
In related news, it seems that the Bush Administration is not disputing Hellyer's statements and further claiming that it is the aliens, and not the burning of fossil fuels, that are in fact responsible for rising temperatures and melting ice caps. They are also rumored to have said that all the stuff they received from the aliens stopped working after their ludicrously short warranties ran out.
