as the earth cooks

Bush says there’s still debate over the cause of global warming. There isn’t. The jury is in, and Gore’s right. Global warming is real, and humans are the cause of it. It’s more obvious than a ten year erection. Fuck, even Frank Luntz can see it.

    I can’t remember where I got the ten year erection link. (Sorry for not giving credit.)

    “Ten Year Erection” sounds like a great art project, doesn’t it?

    I’m so pleased that I could work that link into my post on global warming.

    How do we know that god doesn’t want the earth to get warmer? He works in mysterious ways afterall. (take His work in Darfur for example.)

    Speaking of global warming, we need a new furnace. I’ve been fantasizing about the glories of geothermal energy for a while now. I heard they cost as much as $6,000 more than typical systems, but the extra cost is recouped by massive efficiency savings. Until now, it’s been hard to get accurate numbers on the cost, so I just received an in-person estimate from a local company for installing a geo-thermal system to heat/cool 1,400 sq ft of our 150 year old home. The magic number: $22,000.

    That’s about $15,000 more than the typical HVAC system. We’d save about $1500 a year in heating/cooling costs with geothermal, so the system would pay for itself in about the length of time that Chick Lennon’s had an erection.

    Long term, it still makes sense. Short term, there’s no way we can afford it.

    Well, that’s okay. I guess we all get free geothermal energy when we die.

    $15 k doesn’t sound that bad. I would have thought that it would cost more to drill all the way down into the earth’s molten core.

    I guess I don’t have to drill all the way to the center of the earth. The guy explained to me that it’s a lot like the building of the transcontinental railroad.

    At the same time I’m drilling down, the devil will be drilling up. We meet half way, and form a symbiotic relationship where my home is heated by the fires of hell and cool water is circulated down to the damned, in return.

    What happens when Hell gets cool water? I imagine that things get a little less awful. Perhaps property values go up. Maybe suburbs and golf courses even start to pop up.

    Hell + Cool Water = Phoenix.
