Warmenation activists wheel out the big guns:
“It’s not too late to do something about global warming. It is not too late for us to make the right moves to curb our carbon emissions and save our planet.”
That is what Cadette Girl Scout Emily Paulus, 15, of Tannersville, hopes people will take away from her presentation: “Global warming simplified.”
Paulus produced the hour-long Power Point program as part of her work toward earning the Silver Award, the second highest award in Girl Scouting.
The Silver Award requires 40 hours of work …
Well, let’s not be too harsh on little Miss Prius; at least she put in more effort than Al Gore, who couldn’t be bothered hitting Google for only a couple of minutes. If this Girl Scout’s demonstration isn’t enough to convince you of the danger we face, perhaps you’ll listen to a bunch of fifth graders:
There are two Lego houses. One house, explains Rockrimmon fifthgrader Ryan Greenfield, conserves energy. The other, sitting in a plastic container, does not.
He douses the second one in water, the apparent victim of melting polar ice caps.
Just like Santa Claus, Gaia knows who’s been conserving, she knows who’s been a fake, she knows if you’ve been bad or good, so be good for goodness’ sake. Or she’ll flood your house.
Fifth-graders at Rockrimmon Elementary School in northwest Colorado Springs took on the controversial and newsy topic of global warming for an end-of-year project …
Sam Chiacchia’s team, for example, partially filled a plastic container with water. On one side sat a pile of ice that was Antarctica. On the other side, a pile of sand with Lego people basking on the beach off the coast of New Zealand. A desk lamp slowly melted the ice and students measured the increase in water level — to the misfortune of the Lego beachgoers.
Didn’t the water stop to ask which of the Lego people used low-energy lightbulbs at home? Science is confusing.
