RUSH: By the way, an update, ladies and gentlemen. We had the shocking and frightening news last week that the northern hemisphere is losing two minutes of sunlight every day, and if this crisis continues, we will be in total darkness by June or July. Frightening new information has surfaced from Daylight Change Research. The data indicates drastic changes to the environment that have already started. Many species of birds, millions of individual birds have left the northern hemisphere. The impact of the loss of these birds is unimaginable. Insect life has been severely affected. Most can no longer be observed. Large mammals have been observed lying in a state of near death torpor in their dens. Crop production has fallen to dangerously low levels, and the models and the research predict famine in the very near future. In addition, computer models did not project this, but actual eyewitness observation has shown that most, if not all, leaves have fallen off all trees in the researcher’s hometown. Now, these and other effects of the loss of daylight demand our immediate attention if we are to prevent a climate catastrophe. Remember, total darkness and everything that would result from it by June or July if we cannot enact policies now that change this leakage.
RUSH: Rick in Sarasota, Florida. You are first as we go to the phones today, sir, nice to have you with us.
CALLER: Merry Christmas dittos, Rush.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: I’m happy to tell you that the loss of daylight crisis is over.
RUSH: Not where I live. I mean it got dark yesterday same time it did last week. I didn’t check to see if we’re losing light in the morning or whatever, but I mean look, there’s still no leaves on the trees, there’s still no birds in the northern hemisphere.
CALLER: Oh, they’ll be back.
RUSH: We’ve got record cold up there. I don’t see any signs here that daylight’s coming back.
CALLER: The only question is who do we thank for this miracle?
RUSH: Well —
CALLER: We can’t thank Obama, he’s not in office yes.
RUSH: I think you’re a denier. You are a denier. You are a denier of the disaster. You’re trying to say that this is all cyclical and that it’s going to come back and that you think it’s already started coming back, but you can’t prove it and you’re using this program here as a vehicle here to doubt what are obvious conclusions. I mean legions of scientists have done this, they’ve run this on their models, and there’s no question that we’re losing daylight. There is a consensus of scientists out there who are very alarmed and very concerned that we are losing daylight in the northern hemisphere, not just in the United States, in Canada, in the UK, in parts of China, in North Korea it’s always dark, they’ve got a head start on us. So you can sit there and try to deny this all you want, but eventually you’ll find out, when we get to June and July and there’s no daylight, it’s all down in the southern hemisphere, you’re going to want to move to Rio except for the crime.
RUSH: Steve in Roanoke, Virginia. I’m glad you waited, sir. You’re next and it’s nice to have you here.
CALLER: Thank you, Rush. Dittos and Merry Christmas.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: I just wanted to say, ‘Don’t listen to all the naysayers who believe that this global darkening is a trend that’s going to go away. I think only the Most Merciful, when he gets in office, will be able to take care of this, and it will be by the elimination of all of our HDTVs and DVD players.’
RUSH: Well, now, wait a minute. You’re on a cell phone, and I’m having trouble understanding what you’re saying. Obama, you think, will fix the leakage of daylight going to the Southern Hemisphere by doing what? Banning HDTVs and so forth?
CALLER: That’s correct, sir.
RUSH: Yeah. Well, it remains to be seen. I don’t know that it can be fixed. I don’t know that this is something we can do anything about. (interruption) Well, if we cause it. We don’t know what causes it. It’s not been linked to climate change. Something other than climate change is causing this leakage of sunlight. I think, Steve, the answer is obviously going to be tax increases and stimulus package spending, in order to help people get through the darkness. We just can’t stop living and we can’t all move to the Southern Hemisphere. That just won’t work. We’re going to have crop failure. Crops aren’t going to crow. We’re going to become big importers. We’re going to have to redo NAFTA. There are a number of things we’ll have to do in order to survive.
