climate changes have a natural-and not a human-induced-cause, according to
one scientist's controversial theory."

What rubbish!

Everyone knows that the disappearing martian icecaps are the fault of 
greedy capitalists here on earth.

Them, and the pesky third-worlders, with their impertinent ideas of 
getting an economy.

We should all feel guilty about the martian icecaps and do penance by 
watching Al Gore's film*. And sorting our rubbish into three kinds of 
plastic, recyclable paper, non-recyclable paper, steel cans and 
aluminium cans. (ready to be picked up by three different diesel-powered 
vehicles, that take it all to the same landfill site).
