Nos In Kansate Non Iam Adesse

{February 24, 2008}   Latin is a Kick @$$ language

Nos in kansate non iam adesse means not in kansas anymore, which is how i so often feel. But what I say about Latin is true. It’s an awesome language, and I can’t wait to learn more. I started this blog a little while ago, and well, it died. So often, it’s true. I have decided i won’t let this failed blog plague me, so I’ll try to revive it. More later!

{February 24, 2008}   Global Warming 101

Oh, yah. I’m just going to start with a topic all near-and-dear to us. Global Warming. I know it’s a sort of heavy topic, and I don’t even know the first thing about all that science junk. I can’t tell you why global warming’s happening, and maybe I ought to. So, together, we’re going to have a crash course on global warming. Did you know that over thirty years ago, everyone was worried about global cooling? Yeah, believe it or not, we were once worried it was going to be too cool. Whether we like it or not, the world is getting warmer. Gone are the days of winter and snowmen (Oh, yah, did I mention that it snowed here yesterday?) and we’ve welcomed summertime and beaches, melted ice cream and hot asphalt. It’s too hot to be in school, and too warm to have a snow day. What gives? It’s all our fault. People have been driving there gas guzzling hummers and cars forever, and no one’s ever thought twice. We’ve thrown away recyclables, drilled oil in Alaska, and all because no one cares anymore. So all of a sudden, we get some statistics and depressing predictions from a few scientists, and everyone’s up-in-arms. I’d like to invite you to become part of the recycling revolution. Separate paper from plastic. Oh, and by the way- electric cars aren’t better for the environment. I know, shocking, isn’t it? We’re still ruining the ozone because we have to get electricity to charge our stupid cars, so you mind as well use gas. Fight the heat. Ride the bus. Walk to school. Use a canvas bag at the grocery store. And yes, write a blog. Being online, it requires no paper. May I urge you to start one of your own. Speak out against our planets deterioration, and keep it digital.
