Paris | Smoking cannabis could reduce the progression of global warming according to a recent study by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
The group of experts reiterated their position this week during the COP 21 Paris Conference that “smoking cannabis could be one of the most effective ways to combat global warming”.
“Recent studies have shown that THC transforms the molecule of carbon dioxide (CO2) into oxygen” says California-based IPCC molecular biologist, Steven Johnson.
“All that is lacking is a political will by governments to encourage people to smoke cannabis, as often as possible, at a very early age and in large quantities,” he said during the Paris Conference.
The climate skeptics refuse to believe
Several climate skeptics and self-proclaimed “experts” of climate change challenge the study’s conclusions.
“Like smoking pot is going to solve all of our problems?” lashed out Cincinnati-based radio host and well-known climate change denier, John Adams, yesterday on the airwaves.
“Climate change believers are like a sect! They are ready to believe anything they’re told! The so-called experts of the IPCC are clearly stoned out of their minds to produce scientific conclusions as insane as this” he expressed, visibly furious.
Several environmental groups have been pleasantly surprised by the news.
“It’s good to know I can add a new weapon to my arsenal to fight against global warming,” explains University of Berkley student and environmental activist, Tommy Wilson.
“I already smoke at least one ounce with my roommate each week, but if it’s what we have to do to help Mother Nature, we’re ready to smoke a pound a month,” he admits with conviction.
“It will not be too good for my studies, but it’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make for future generations,” he confessed to our reporter.
Present at the 21st Conference on Climate Change this week, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also confirmed his commitment to making the legalization of cannabis the “iron spear” of Canada’s commitment to fight global warming.
