    It's global cooling. It's the oil companies fault, too. All that smog drifts out into space and suffocates the sun, cooling our atmosphere. We'll probably all freeze to death. Saw it in a movie once. It's very scary. Animals freeze instantaneously. You're forced to burn books to stay warm. Just awful stuff. Vote Gore.
    There is nothing more dangerous to the liberty of Man than a Government or a Religion seizing upon the strings of an overdeveloped herd instinct amongst the people.

    That might be global warming in the form of hot air, eh? Generated by mounds of male bovine excrement?
