What's Next? Baldness?

Everything bad that happened in the world used to be "Reagan's fault."  Then, it became "Bush's fault."  Now, there's something new to blame for all our woes . . . global warming.

Today, there's a study reporting (with a straight face) that global warming will cause an additional 1.6 million to 2.2 million additional Americans to get kidney stones - yes, kidney stones - by 2050.  (See report.)  The theory seems to be that the hotter it gets, the more people will become dehydrated and get kidney stones as a result.


Mark my words, by 2050, some environmental scientist will blame global warming for baldness . . . The sun is getting hotter and hotter, it is literally burning the hair off of men's scalps at an ever increasing rate . . . You can see it now, can't you.  I know that some scientist making that laughable claim before 2050 is much more likely than 1.6 million more kidney stones.
