We're all familiar with the phrase The Butterfly Effect. Indeed, many have had the misfortune of seeing the film named after it. The idea is that a butterfly flapping its wings in Bangladesh could lead to a tidal wave in Japan, or to note a well documented example: when Queen Elizabeth sneakily passed gas during tea time in 1989, it culminated in the current financial crisis.
Familiar as you might be with the butterfly effect however, you are not familiar enough. According to Dr. Makhboul Rasmi, a scientist working at Azhar hospital with a joint degree in gynecology and quantum physics, butterflies themselves might actually be the key to averting future disasters.
"It came to me in a moment of inspiration," Dr. Rasmi told EKT, "I was az-azing some lib and suddenly I realized that we have to kill all the butterflies in Egypt!"
Dr. Rasmi went on to explain that the solution to combating climate change lay silently hidden in the popular phrase the "butterfly effect". “These little insects actually have the power to cause tidal waves!” says the quantum physical gynecologist. “We need to exterminate them immediately and avert any more disasters caused by them!”
The doctor claims that by ridding Egypt, and eventually the whole world, of butterflies, we will save ourselves and humanity from their devastating effects. That is, the world could basically avert the looming climate crisis, and possibly even mend the current financial one.
“All I did was just put two and two together,” he explains. “By eliminating the butterflies we would also be stopping any crisis where they might act as the middle-men, or to be precise, middle-insects. So really there is no way to tell how many lives could be saved."
Dr. Rasmi said he is currently writing a paper to submit to the Copenhagen Climate Summit committee for review at the end of this year. He told EKT that in it he cited the success of the recent culling of the pigs in Egypt as bullet-proof evidence that his proposal will work.
