Musings of a Dinosaur

Random Thought/Old Joke

If the earth is 93,000,000 miles from the sun, does that mean that as I sit here in Denver, those 90+ degree waves of heat only had to travel 92,999,999 miles?

Also, if those same rays only had to travel a little more than 92,999,997 miles to reach me at the summit of Pike's Peak yesterday (elevation 14,110 feet), why was a bone chilling 41 windy, bitter degrees up there?

All we need to do is move the Earth a mile closer to the Sun. The temperature will be cooler and we will stop the warming.
Hurray... we are saved!
