A site for all things Chicken Little has a fun little typo…
Apparently too much CO2 is bad for certain fish species because it makes them do things they otherwise wouldn’t do. Like swim too close to predators. Or guardrails, or something. Because, you know, they get drunk and start slurring their words and they get “wreckesss” like earthweek web editorsssss.
For the record, I’m very glad God made the heavens and the earth and declared it all good, and then even “very good,” once humanity was introduced on the scene to subdue the earth and be steward to it. And I’m especially grateful for all the natural processes He put in place that make things happen in ways and on time scales that we simply do not understand. I just wish the chicken little types would accept that a little more and devote their energies to problems that are more pressing and immediate—like real solutions to AIDS, malaria, and HPV prevention, and eradicating the scourge of abortion. Those are real things that could be done right now to solve immediate planetary problems rather than nebulous, possible, not-quite-proven, tiny projections of hints of problems for our grandchildren’s great great grandchildren, or some such.
