Dr. Suess is Not Here to Puke, So I Will

February 25, 2012


It’s not the Lorax’s fault. He’s just the latest in the series of animated films inspired by Dr. Suess children’s books that have, so far, all made me want to projectile power chuck.  Maybe this one’s different – but the record is not promising.

For those that loved the books, and worshipped the writer/illustrator as a genius, Hollywood’s treatment has been worse than shabby – its practically a sacrilege.

It’s all the more ironic that as this one gets the full bullshit greenwashing treatment from Mazda, above, the right wing is simultaneously bloviating about how it supposedly inculcates evil environmental values in young’ns.

CollegeNews:

“The Lorax”, a favored Dr. Seuss book, has been adapted into movie form and set to hit theaters next month but is already stirring up controversy. Lou Dobbs has gone on record claiming that “The Lorax” is indoctrinating America’s children the liberal agenda of Occupy Wall Street and President Obama. Zac Efron, who plays a 12-year-old boy in “The Lorax”, accidentally dropped a condom on the red carpet at a premiere in California this week.

Mother Jones:

Fans of The Lorax have raised concerns that the new big-screen version is neglecting the environmental message of the beloved Dr. Seuss book. The movie doesn’t come out until March 2, but the initial trailer and promotional materials ignited a round of complaints on the web.

Now people are having a (rather justified) heart attack about the fact that The Lorax is now being used to cross-promote a new SUV. Earlier this week, Mazda announced that it has partnered with Universal Pictures to promote the new “‘Seuss-ifed’ 2013 Mazda CX-5 crossover SUV.” The cross-promotion includes commercials with a cartoon version of the car driving through a valley of Truffula trees. The ads claim that the car is “Truffula tree friendly” –whatever that’s supposed to mean, given that the car is a standard fuel-injection-engine SUV. Sure, it’s apparently better than other SUVs on the market. But not that good.

    And just what would they say about Luke 12:33 ?

    Just a note: his name is spelled “Seuss”. The (sic) spelling makes it look like he is an ambulance chaser “Dr. Sues(s)”. :P

    “A). … 1). Regular qualitative predictions are US for “normal” catastrophic, violent AGW ecosystems (quakes to CMEs to toxic feticide) from the EssoKochFox’s and their willing accomplices. What will be another mother of all catastrophes, the 92nd JCS-MADDD Model (2/26 – 3/3/12) with many watery nightmares will be unleashed all across Allah’s good Earth that includes an increase risk for Valero’s employees and equipment but will not impede the extremist Republicans and Christians’ free pollution exports to help generate more catastrophic flooding, blizzards, and other water-related catastrophes. … Expect sunspots to be ripped out of the farside.

DEQ-ORM-Esso-Kill-the-Planet Model (1/29 – 2/4/12). … Back on our heads, AGW ecology becomes rocket science that shows extremists’ free AGW exports are our 1st starships let loose to destroy whole solar systems and parts of the universe that revolves around them.

From this Saturday to the next Saturday, the 257th SEERCH Model (2/26 – 3/3/12) should produce a decrease in the sunspot number (spaceweather.com). The 230th BAZS=ERC Model (2/26 – 3/3/12) predicts a 20 – 120 sunspot number. From this Saturday to the next Saturday, the 91st Solar Storm Model (2/26 – 3/3/12) maximum negative Bz will range from -5 to -15 nT. … E). For 2/26 – 3/3/12 … 1). Officially, there should be AGW solar flare(s) (discharges) in the form of x-ray(s), radio blackout(s) and/or similar energies of X1+. 2). There should be monster AGW CMEs (coronal mass ejections), significant solar wind, and coronal holes on the nearside < farside of the Sun. 3). The HooShooToo Model for predicting AGW flares discharging from the Earth include: Electron 2MeV Integral Flux (relativistic electron fluxes – REF), IMF (interplanetary magnetic field), GSI (geomagnetic sudden impulse), sprites, Nacreous Clouds, and NLCs (Noctilucent clouds), are modeled for energy and material trying to leave the Earth.

      Based on AGW, I predicted “91st Solar Storm Model (2/26 – 3/3/12) maximum negative Bz will range from -5 to -15 nT” for the week.

      Tentative ta-da, on 2/27/12, Swpc.noaa.gov/ftpdir/lists/ace, ace_mag_1m.txt reported a -Bz of -9.7.

      “MAGNETOSPHERE … From Satellites: ACE Satellite … part of the Sun’s magnetic field dragged off the surface of the Sun and … the most intense effects upon Earth’s magnetic field occur when the solar wind magnetic field is directed opposite to Earth’s magnetic field and the intensity is ‘large’ … the best single indicator is the Bz” (son.nasa.gov/tass/magnetosphere/sat_ace.htm).

      However, cherry picking while Looter is nose-picking with the only prediction a free lunch –

No, it doesnt matter where you look. … No amount of computer modeling or rhetoric from famous people or proclamations from large institutions or speeches from our leaders in Washington can change this. …These flaws have resulted in destructive policies that threaten your safety and prosperity … satellites say the window in the sky is open.

        My apologies to Dr. Phillips and NASA –
        “AURORA OUTBURST … “ was from “What’s up in Space” (Dr. Tony Phillips; spaceweather.com, 2/28/12).

    If rain comes from the Sun, virgin forest biomes come from EssoKochs’ emissions, human fetuses from the Looter Limbaughs’ radio waves, and Tang comes from a Mazda tail pipe –

    From the John Coleman School of Science, pay toilet by Heartland, text books from Cornwall Alliance and the George C. Marshall Institute, published by Canada Free Press: “Meteorologist Milan Stevančević, of the Belgrade School of Meteorology, told our radio that the cold wave that struck Serbia and the whole of Europe recently had been caused by a solar storm, or a solar flare. … Clouds and precipitations result from a large quantity of oxygen and hydrogen from the Sun.
