Denizens, the next time you get into a silly little argument with an environ-mental case truther – you know, one of those OwlBore don-the-kneepad types who whiningly insist that “the debate is OVAH!!!!!” -
(Incidentally, I call it a “silly little argument” for this reason: it’s like trying to teach a pig to sing…it profits you little and annoys the pig.)
- try this little experiment with them. (I got this from LCrightismightNY over at the Rott, but it’s merely a reminder of something I’ve been saying now for years.)
Get a glass and fill it with ice. Tell the enviro-truther: “Okay, now this will represent the planet. The ice will represent the ice at the North Pole.”
Fill the glass to the top with water. Tell the truther: “Now, the ice sticking out of the water here will be the polar ice caps.”
According to their own dumb-assed philosophy, when the ice melts, the water will overflow the sides of the cup. Make sure you point this out to the enviro-nutcase.
Spend the next 30 to 45 minutes demonstrating to the enviro-truther what a flaming dumbshit he/she is. Great hilarity should ensue.
This tip comes from a guy who had a stepdaugher who bought into that bullshit, and was unable to convince her otherwise in the limited time I was married to her mother.
Get to ‘em quickly – before they realize they know everything.
