I waited until the day after ‘Earth Hour’ before placing this message in my Facebook.
‘Anas knows that Global Warming is a natural environmental change process repeated since the beginning of time; and the propaganda that human activities CO2 emissions is the main reason for Global Warming is one of the biggest bullshit in human history. It also shows that we humans have a false belief that we are far more significant than the Sun and Mother Nature’
Let me explain.
My second sister Aini (kakDek) brought back a globe for my nephew Erza the last time she balik kampong to Malaysia last hari raya. For reasons I cannot recall, that globe now is residing in my house.
The globe is bluer than any other color, obviously, as the earth’s surface is more water than land. If I were to use a marker pen and mark areas where we humans are actively living in, the majority of the earth will still be empty of people.
I boil water on a daily basis, you know for drinks, telur setengah masak, etc. I began to wonder, how long and what kind of heater do we need to boil(heat up) all the water from the sea and land on mother earth? I sometimes cook too. Now, how big a fire will I need to heat up all the land mass too? Now how about the air around us? Really ...can the last 40 – 50 years of human activities like industry, driving our loveable cars and riding of motorbikes do that? Hmm... kind of tak masuk akal...
The globe my sister bought is a really good one. It has not a flat surface. Instead areas where the land mass is higher like the mountains you have somewhat pimple like swelling. So like some human faces, the earth has loads of pimples. Some are still alive, the volcanoes. One of those pimples erupted in 1883, the Krakatao of Indonesia.
The ‘boom’ was heard 4600km away! The dust from the eruption fell as far as 2,500 km away. The finer fragments flew high into the stratosphere, spreading like cloud across the entire equatorial within two weeks. They remain suspended in the atmosphere for years to come, earth’s temperature drop several degrees for years. One pimple eruption from mother earth can cause that. Imagine if she farts! Do we really think we are that significant?
You know what, I am not a scientist. But, like all other humans, God gave me common sense. (Thank you, God!). We need to just look up for the answer, no not in prayer, look up at the sun. I think if there is any heater capable of heating the earth, its water and atmosphere, IT WOULD BE THE SUN!
That does not mean that I condone wasteful behavior. But I definitely, do not condone that we blindly follow the majority. Scientist, politicians, pressure groups, and religious leaders, included.
Now, go switch off your lights, he!he!
