Pat Sajak, Blogger

Back in the old days when we used to watch Wheel of Fortune, we always thought Pat Sajak seemed like a guy who would be fun to meet. Despite the fame he had garnered through the show, he never seemed to take himself (or the show for that matter) overly seriously.
That basic good sense is also evident in his blog, Sajak Says, He currently has on the main page two thoughtful posts on the Global Warming hysteria now sweeping the world. Unfortunately, there seems to be no way to get a permanent link to these until they reach the blog archives. So if they are no longer on the main page, scroll to the bottom and click on the Archived Articles link.
The two titles are “Is it Just Me, or is it Warm in Here?” and “Global Warming: What Are You Willing to Do?” Here’s a sample from the second post:
However, there’s another level on which I have trouble with those who are the true believers. Why aren’t they doing more to stop it? I don’t mean offering ideas for regulations to tell the rest of us what to do; I mean what are they doing personally. If I’m driving an SUV or living in a big house, they can accuse me of callous disregard for the problem, but at least the callousness is based on my non-belief. What about them? Why are they still driving that big car or living in that big house? In fact, why are they driving at all? Why haven’t they moved into a minimalist home within walking distance of their office? Talk about callous!
Imagine being absolutely certain we are the verge of a man-made catastrophe and not doing everything within your power to help reverse it. Anyone who truly believes it and still uses anything more than the lowest-wattage single bulb or drives one mile more than absolutely necessary is nothing short of a monster! A skeptic’s actions can be blamed on ignorance; a believer’s can only be chalked up to a shocking disregard for his children’s futures.
It’s nice to find someone in the entertainment business who isn’t a moonbat.
