For the last few days, we’ve experienced the coldest temperatures since we moved to Colorado. It was -17 degrees yesterday morning! We were supposed to have escaped these temperatures when we moved from Minnesota in 2000, but this is cold even in those standards.
What happened? Five years ago, we were on the verge of melting!
No kidding. In January 2006, Al Gore made the public claim that we would face inevitable meltdown — even called it “Armageddon” — within the coming decade. I tend to lean toward Rush Limbaugh’s reaction: “Bwa ha ha!” Rush placed a ticking time clock on this website that today reads 4 years, 11 months, 24 days: “Countdown to Armageddon” he calls it. While you may not like how Rush makes fun of his political opponents, it’s tough not to laugh at Al Gore.
Boxes of our new book, Love Another Child, arrived yesterday. I shared it with a friend, father of 9 children, and he thumbed through the table of contents. He gravitated straight to Chapter 4: Our Environment. This is where Wendy and I drill down deep into the huge fallacies of the likes of Al Gore. We don’t get too political (we fought the temptation), but we reasonably analyze the claims made through the years — virtually all of them disproved — about how fragile our environment is. You’re in for a good read.
The book’s purpose is to persuade couples to consider another child. Why do we dedicate an entire chapter to environmentism? Because there is a popular mantra out there making the argument, “Children hurt the earth; therefore, don’t have another child.” The ideas of environmentalism and overpopulation is what we spend a good deal of time on.
Wendy and I can’t wait for you to read this book. We sent out our first batch today, signed 1st printings, and are taking orders for these special books now through Valentine’s Day. Order today: Love Another Child.
