Who's the next Enviro Villian?
I miss Dubya.
Don't worry. Just a little. Kind of like when Kip Winger retired. It's nice to have a villian to throw darts at (check your Metallica history). Now that George W. is gone, who do we blame for the world's environmental problems?
Oh, I know, the Bush administration! I'm sure that will be a common refrain in coming years, especially in Congress: "We're trying to undue the damage done by Dubya."
With Friday the 13th approaching, and a new (re-imagining of) Friday the 13th coming to theaters, I thought I'd take some votes on who the next environmental villian, environmental killer, environmental horror guy (or gal) should be.
Oh, I got it: Sean Hannity . This guy ... He's just ignorant when it comes to topics like climate change. And I keep listening to his radio show. The show switched from AM to FM in my market, and I keep listening. I guess I just want to know what the Flat Earthers have to say.
Today he was going on about the new energy secretary, Steven Chu, making fun of Chu for sounding the alarm about global warming in California.
Here's Chu, who won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1997, being ridiculed by Hannity, a former bartender and co-host on Fox News. Oh, I know Chu isn't a climate scientist, but he can read (Hannity?) and two recent university studies make similar warnings about the Golden Gate State. OK. I know who to believe.
I vote for Hannity for Environmental Villian of 2009 (at least until I can find someone better). Sen. James Inhofe?
I welcome your thoughts.
