In Jurassic Park, when Jeff Goldblum blabbered on about Chaos Theory and butterflies causing hurricanes, I thought he was full of it. Turns out that butterflies do affect the weather, at least according to the EPA’s EnergyStar PSAs.
I heard this little gem this morning on the radio:
Think I’m making this up? Download the mp3 of the PSA here. According to the EPA’s website, “451 stations are airing the ‘Butterfly’ and ‘Breathe’ radio spots in English and Spanish in 263 cities and 49 states.”
So is it true? Are butterflies really a meanace to us all? Or is the EPA actively spreading stupidity?
