I have been noticing a that a significant portion of the United States has been experiencing an extremely cold winter in spite of all the "global warming" predictions which have been talked about by "climate experts". I have a theory about why we are currently having such extreme weather and a solution to get things warmed back up. My theory is that Toyota has over-engineered the Prius into a machine which not only combats "global warming" but it is actually cooling the planet. When there were only a small number of them it didn't cause much of a problem, but it is obvious that now they are collectively plunging our country into a small Ice Age. I have to say that I am neither a climate expert or an automotive engineer, but in spite of my lack of credentials I have come up with solutions to this problem. 1. Knowing that Prius owners are very concerned about the environment, I call upon them to take 25% of their cars off the road till things warm up. They can put them in the garage and let them rest for a while. After it thaws they can come back out and help save the world again. 2. I am also asking people owning large carbon footprint vehicles to break them out and put them to work warming the country back up till we melt all the ice and free up the highways. Think about how the Hummers and heavy duty pickups can save the climate. Instead of being the problem you have a chance to be part of the solution. 3. Florida is experiencing extreme conditions in the orange producing areas and they need some Prius owners to step up and make an even larger sacrifice. I am asking large numbers of Florida area Prius owners to drive their cars to the orange groves and set them on fire to serve as smudge pots which will eliminate the freezing temperatures and save the orange crop. I know that it is a huge sacrifice, but I really enjoy my orange juice here in Washington State and this will allow me to continue drinking it. Who knows you may even get a nice letter from Nobel Prize winner Al Gore. Thank you for your help in this very serious matter.
