You’ve gone Green.
You’ve gone Blue (and no, not talking about Michigan State College Football).
You’ve gone Yellow.
You’ve gone Red (and not out of anger or frustration)
And some, even go Rainbow… but that is a different topic all together.
Pick a colour, there is a cause for it… much of it relating to the Save-the-World-from-Ourselves, à la Al Gore style… with hints of David Suzuki sprinkled throughout.
We spend countless, hard-earned pennies (of which for some is difficult to spare or come by especially in this economical climate) to make a difference, paying big bucks for this propaganda, while paying big tax dollars for others to do the same.
We have entered into a very reactionary ‘crisis-mode,‘ rising shovels and pruning sheers to save the planet… for we are all BAD BAD VERY BAD human beings. Afterall… we are killing our planet.
Can we do better to alleviate our carbon imprint?
I’m more than sure we can.
Just don’t follow Al Gore’s lead… he talks the talk, but doesn’t walk the walk.
Well even his talk is… questionable at the very least.
Stir everyone into a frenzy by saying a bunch of shit that freaks everyone out, mix in a Nobel Peace Prize AND an Oscar over a fake ass crisis while fattening his wallet… serve on ice.
There you go.
It’s THAT bad.
So much so that last December, the United Nations got together in Coppenhagen to hold a Climate Summit – to save the world from ourselves – remember, ‘cause we are BAD BAD VERY BAD humans. World leaders fought hard to be there. It ended with a ‘non-binding document aiming to limit world temperature increases to no more than 2 •C.’
The U.N. is powerful enough to modify nature and limit world temperatures?
Globally, temperatures have already risen by 0.8 •C over the past century.
The planet has gone thru many evolutionary climate changes over the billions of years it’s been in existence, well before we were even a pre-conceived atom on the evolutionary time-scale.
And it will continue on that course… with or without us pedily-ass humans with big-ass egos.
How audacious is it of the UN to believe that we can control the evolutionary process and limit the world’s rising temperature!
Sometimes people leave me speechless.
I am all for cleaning up my act.
Cleaning up my actions.
Reducing to the best of capabilities and as the wallet allows me… my carbon footprint.
I do my best to buy products that are eco-friendly… and compost whenever possible (but damn, that attracts vermin like raccoons, skunks and rats…)
I don’t buy goods made from endangered species or their body parts. At least not on purpose.
I recycle and where possible, reuse.
I do my part.
I know I don’t walk nearly enough … and drive perhaps a bit too much.
But I live in a fairly less-than-urban area that makes not-owning a car, troublesome.
A girl’s gotta live!
But to think that we can control nature… jeez.
I love the contradiction in that belief system they have.
Heck, even Obama said ‘we cannot control nature’ (in relation to the 8.8 magnitude earthquake in Chile) in spite of his agenda pushing administration that says the world is in full-blown crisis with this man-made global warming bullshit.
Why, of all the issues that are going on in the world, did this one make me pop one of the last unfrayed nerves I have remaining?
But it sure as hell made me laugh at the audacity of man.
We are stupid people.
And even stupider if we believe all this bullshit.
