DHMO Crisis

This may be an opportune moment to alert people to the dangers of another threat to the planet: dihydrogen monoxide.

Dihydrogen monoxide, or DHMO as it is referred to, is a major component of acid rain, contributes to the greenhouse effect, erodes our natural landscape and accelerates corrosion of metals. Unfortunately, it’s already found in many foods and there are high concentrations in our rivers, lakes and seas. It has been known to cause electrical outages and has been a factor in traffic accidents by causing brake failure. It is fatal if inhaled and has been detected in malignant tumours.

The scientists are virtually screaming from the rooftops now. The debate is over! There’s no longer any debate in the scientific community about this. But the political systems around the world have held this at arm’s length because it’s an inconvenient truth, because they don’t want to accept that it’s a moral imperative.

If we did not take action to solve this crisis, it could indeed threaten the future of human civilisation. That sounds shrill. It sounds hard to accept. I believe it’s deadly accurate. But again, we can solve it. Future generations may well have occasion to ask themselves, “What were our parents thinking? Why didn’t they wake up when they had a chance?” We have to hear that question from them, now.

Enough is enough. It’s time to start the campaign to reduce DHMO.

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
