Iceland Saves Earth!

Seems that volcano those Icelanders set off the other day will result in a climate change that could save the world from global warming!

A cooling trend is certain to result from the ash spewed into the air. Early estimates show that the eruption has already pumped nearly the same amount of hot, worthless material into the atmosphere as came out of Washington, D.C. during the health care reform debate.

Concern in the White House is that this could actually lead to a reversal of our planet's warming. Saying he wants to "stay ahead of the curve," President Obama announced sweeping changes that will affect millions of Americans.

Monday, he'll sign an executive order that will penalize those driving cars and light trucks rated at more than 20 miles per gallon.

"We need to take drastic measures now, before it's too late!" said Obama. "Starting tomorrow, during each work day, all government vehicles will be required to be left idling when not in use. To pay for the fuel costs, we're going to have to tax every hybrid vehicle, as they're not doing their part to increase the carbon dioxide levels necessary to maintain the planet's current temperatures. I'm calling on all my fellow world leaders to issue the same directives in their countries as well."

When asked what we'll do about vehicles with gasoline and diesel engines that get more than 20 miles per gallon?

"I'd like every American - along with the tens of millions of illegal aliens driving in our country without licenses and insurance - to follow the government's lead on this. If their car or truck gets more than an EPA estimated 20 miles per gallon, they should leave their vehicles idling during the workday. We'll require employers to pick up the tab on fuel costs for all their employees."

Al Gore's already shopping a new book, This Time For Sure! The subtitle - the true story of an even less convenient truth - indicates he'll do an about-face from his previous work.


  1. Rusty,
    Thank you for your comment on my alien romances group blog. I enjoyed your post.

  2. 1883 eruption of Krakatoa - The 1883 eruption ejected approximately 21 cubic kilometres (5.0 cu mi) of rock, ash, and pumice.

    In the year following the eruption, average global temperatures fell by as much as 1.2 °C (2.2 °F). Weather patterns continued to be chaotic for years, & temperatures did not return to normal until 1888.
