The Enviroment and Global Warming - Chu's or Lose

Let's Not Walk Like The Egyptians

I hate to say it, but I have very little faith in humankind being able to sustain itself on this planet for that much longer. Over 2000 years ago, the Egyptians built the pyramids using manual labor and carved the Sphinx out of a solid piece of rock. Yeah, so I watch a lot of History Channel, big deal.

Today, it's 2006 and with all the technology we have, we can't control global warming, make our waters trash-free and our skies blue, but we can damn well make it worse. Hell, our people can't even get a pothole filled in under a month or a carpool lane added in less than ten years. Traffic control is a joke because planners insist on implementing unprotected left turns- aka the stupidest idea ever. Don't bother hitting up your local congressperson for help either. I wrote to mine to request a speed bump be put in near my parents' house in Tustin Heights so they don't get run over walking to the mailbox, and the dude blows me off. Way to earn your Asian-American votes, jackass.

So with all that genius running around, why does it surprise us that our natural resources are as chocolatey brown as Nads' RSX? Last winter it was 90 degrees, 110 degrees in the summer, and it isn't supposed to cool down in the future. At this rate, we'll all melt like chocolate Easter bunnies under a magnifying glass. It doesn't help that idiots are spilling oil everywhere (that's one reason the gas prices are so absurdly high, or so they say).

Look, I'm not saying I'm the most environmentally sound person around. Like, I'm not a tree-hugging hippy or anything. I do own four cars and none of them are hybrid or electric. But I'm hoping to be alive for a while and would like a planet to live on where I can swim at the beach without a Doritos bag wrapped around my leg. I'd prefer Earth, but I'll inhabit any planet with food that isn't infected by E. coli, Mad Cow, Bird Flu or any other nasty disease. In short, I don't want to become another extinct civilization like the ancient Egyptians. They were dope and all, but they still died off because they used up all their resources. Four thousand years from now, some snotty archeologist shouldn't be digging through piles of trash talking about how our people could have lived forever if we just learned how to manage and take care of our resources properly. Those who are with me say "Hell Yeah!" and go out and buy at least one CARB-approved part for your car. If not, then go on with the other morons and keep littering in the streets and in the oceans. I'll make sure to kick you in the back of the knees and rub your face in it until you decide to pick it up.
