Junkscience.com, the Fox News mouthpeice that disses global warming and the green movement, is at it again. It is sponsoring a contest that will pay $100,000 to anyone who can prove humans are causing global warming. Of course the Ultimate Global Warming Content (UGWC also stands for the United German Warhammer Clan, a gaming group) is a spoof and no one will ever make a cent from this. Junkscience.com also has The Greener Pledge whose adherents must swear to a list of promises to `help’ the green movement, which Junkscience.com routinely badmouths. Some of the pledges are sort of funny. They include:
– Opening soda cans more slowly to the reduce rate of CO2 emissions.
– Reduce CO2 emissions by doing as little exercise as possible, and
– Use more solar energy by taking longer beach vacations.

Stay tuned for slideshows of robot stars from later decades.
