Dr F, thought what he had, was a pretty good idea, in this blog entry, but the bloom is somewhat off the rose, as they say. NBC in their infinite wisdom, probably at the bequest of their lawyers, pulled the Al Gore interview off YouTube. Add to that, Conan’s sudden departure from the late-night television stage and well, as I said the bloom is off the rose.    

In his recent  appearance on ‘The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien,’ our ex. VP, made some scientifically ludicrous and very naïve statements about the Earth’s core and energy production, which his detractors, mined for gold.   Frankensteam, too, believed there was mileage in this material, but for now the threads that I/he am/is/was/were following, seem to have come unraveled.  

Al Gore on Conan O’Brien’s show the other day:  

Conan: Now, what about … you talk in the book about geothermal energy …  

Al: Yeah, yeah.  

Conan: and that is, as I understand it, using the heat that’s generated from the core of the earth …  

Al: Yeah.  

Conan: … to create energy, and it sounds to me like an evil plan by Lex Luthor to defeat Superman. Can you, can you tell me, is this a viable solution, geothermal energy?  

Al: It definitely is, and it’s a relatively new one. People think about geothermal energy — when they think about it at all — in terms of the hot water bubbling up in some places, but two kilometers or so down in most places there are these incredibly hot rocks, ’cause the interior of the earth is extremely hot, several million degrees, and the crust of the earth is hot …  

Now, if the learned ex-VPOTUS, had just said–thousands of degrees…  

The fact is, deep geo-thermal, does have historical president (no pun intended), as the below links to ‘The Deepest Hole,’ prove. Both the defunct Soviet Union, and the Western Block scientific communities, were actively involved in research into this futuristic technology, and dear children, they still are!   

All the links with the exception of the ‘goddess Gaia and Al Gore is her prophet,’ still work, and more my follow, but for now, this has turned into a dry hole.  Sorry Charlie.

A developing story.  Maybe.       

Giai, Goddess of the Earth with her Consort, Aion and their four children

How come the Arctic’s melting, and how hot ‘is’ the center of the Earth, and are polar bears [really] in peril, and why ‘is’ Al Gore saying all those terrible things about our mother, Gaia ?          

Speeking of which, why did the Russians… er-ah, Soviet Union, ex-of, try ta dig a hole to the center of the Earth, and what did they find there?          

Round and round she goes and where she stops, nobody knows. Frankensteam’s on a roll.          

…stay tuned, kids!

Today is Flag Day.

…commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States.

In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day; in August 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.

A flag I was unaware of until today is –the ‘Flag of Earth,’ created by James Cadle in 1970.

The Flag of Earth flies at most SETI locations around the world. It symbolizes the fact that our search is carried out on behalf of humankind as a whole. The individual people, organizations, and nations involved are immaterial, since any communication with extraterrestrial intelligence will belong to all of humanity, and represent Earth’s entry into the Galactic community.

This flag is laid out thusly: a circle of yellow, inhabiting  2/3rds of the left-hand side, representing the Sun or Sol is partially obscured by a solid blue circle centered in the middle of a black background representing the Earth, and a smaller white circle in the lower right-hand corner of the flag representing  Luna or the Moon.

Citizens of Earth!

In 1982 Ronald Reagan introduced himself in a speech to the General Assembly of the United Nations as “…both a citizen of the United States and of the world.” If we should considers ourselves citizens of Earth or the world as then President Regan did, then why don’t his acolytes (The Grinch and El RushboET all) follow the words of the man they so revere?

“I speak today as both a citizen of the United States and of the world.”  –Ronald Wilson Reagan to the United Nations General Assembly Special Session Devoted to Disarmament
June 17, 1982

Hey, Newt! Ya forgot Iran.

“Let me be clear. I am not a citizen of the world. I think the entire concept is intellectual nonsense and stunningly dangerous. There is no world sovereignty. There is no world system of law. There is in fact no circumstance under which I would like to be a citizen of North Korea, Zimbabwe, Venezuela, Cuba, or Russia. I am a citizen — I am a citizen of the United States of America.” –Newt Gingrich June 8, 2009

There’s only one Earth –Terra Firma, and (74 percent of which is covered by water) we all gotta learn ta live on it together, in peace, or the species formerly known as Homosapien will vanish from this world.

Greetings from Earth: where the males don’t wear no pants and the women don’t wear no tops.Pioneer plack

Peace, brothers and sisters, citizens –of the world.
