Just Stupid in My Book

I saw this headline this morning; Branson offers $25m for climate answer. So I clicked on over.

Seems Sir Branson, of Virgin Records fame, is offering a $25m reward to any scientist(s) that can figure out a way to save the earth from global warming.

Really? Huh.

$25 Million Dollars.

To figure out a way to (and I quote)" "extract greenhouse gases from the atmosphere."

$25 Million Dollars.

That would feed a lot of people.

That would go a long way in disease research.

That would build a lot of houses.

And those are just a few things that came to mind. We all know Branson is of the liberal persuasion, so I won't push MY personal beliefs on him, even though that would provide a lot of body armour and weapons for our military. It would be a nice boost in benefits for our military families. But I'll respect his right NOT to go that route.

But that doesn't mean I won't mention that there are many more viable ways to use that money.

I may be way wrong in this thought process, but it seems to me it's just a big ole publicity stunt. Like I said, I might be wrong, but I don't think so.

With all the problems and issues we face in society now, THIS is just a bit, oh let's just say STUPID.

But then again, that's just MY opinion.

I offer $25 to anyone who will slap the shit out of him.

I'm thinking that grounding the whole Virgin Airlines fleet would lower greenhouse gasses...
