The Enviro Left Still Has The Capacity To Amaze and Amuse Me
Posted by: McQ on Friday, January 16, 2009

First we have this:

If you've been paying attention, there's been a war against bottled water going on with the enviro crowd. However, apparently we now have an acceptable bottled water, because, you know, there's a message in the bottle.
Inside every Bottle of M lies a somber scene of environmental meltdown caused by irresponsible plastic disposal.

As the drink in the bottle gets emptied out, the subtle message would remind one to dispose off the empty bottle into the recycling bin. Through a little more attention in packaging design, Bottle of 'M' being a humble daily object, hopes to bring the message of environmental awareness to the public effectively.
Coming soon to a landfill near you.

Makes your head want to explode, doesn't it?

And if that's not enough, check this out.

It is described thusly:
The Nopopo batteries use a combination of magnesium and carbon that can be mixed with a variety of fluids (including urine) to produce a charge. These batteries only last around 500mAh, which is far less than your average alkaline AA battery, but at least you won't have to kill the earth to recharge them.
I knew you'd get a charge out of that. Van Helsing, over at RWN boils it down to its essence (uh, no pun intended):
Nopopo stands for "no pollution power." Apparently piddling all over yourself as you attempt to recharge the batteries doesn't count as pollution — presumably because it could only improve the smell of most environmentalist moonbats.
The earth, I'm sure, is heaving a huge sigh of relief over these marvelous advances in environmental protection.

Sure, but is it enough "no pollution" to offset the bottled water I had to drink so I had to pee when I need to recharge the battery?

I wonder how much extra that little diorama in the bottle will cost to purchase.

All for a good cause, I’m sure.

Drinking water should be a daily reminder of the tragedies of nature caused by human existence. D@mn those aliens, dropping us off here and sullying a pristine planet with our unnatural presence.

Actually, it sounds like the batteries are pretty light, pre-piddle anyway. That would make them possibly useful as emergency back-up batteries for GPSs or flashlights when backpacking.

Heh ... I’d have to be assured they’re very leakproof before I’d consider popping them into my GPS.

If humans are such a pox on this planet, I suggest to all these enviro nuts that they lead by example and remove themselves from it.

Hey man, don’t knock it till you try it. For twenty years I ran my bio transportation device on simple p!ss and vinegar.
Sadly though, I am unable to locate any more renewable sources. Perhaps I’ll get a mid-life crisis Harley Davidson to stimulate production.

I’ve been forced to conclude, based on evidence provided by the earth first-er philosophy base about man and global warming (and, pretty much any other thing man does to ’screw’ Gaea) that we are not ’natural’.

That only leaves one other answer, since we aren’t part of the natural system.

Now, I’m not talking anything as outrageous as Emperor Xenu here,
personally I’m beginning to believe our current government IS evidence we are descendants of the survivors of Golgafrincham B Ark ship. I think the genes from the forefathers bred true in the members of Congress and the Senate.

They’re the only ones I can think of who might seriously, even for a moment, believe we can spend our way out of debt.

If you’re not familiar with Golgfrincham, here’s a reference, that will enable you to understand why I think my belief is rock solid.
The planet Golgafrincham creatively solved the problem of middle managemers: it blasted them in to space.
Golgafrinchan Telephone Sanitisers, Management Consultants and Marketing executives were persuaded that the planet was under threat from an enormous mutant star goat. The useless third of their population was then packed in Ark spaceships and sent to an insignificant planet.
Now, replace "threat from an enormous mutant star goat" with "human generated carbon dioxide" and you’ll begin to see the strength of my position.

What’s a "star goat" (mutant or otherwise) and do they emit carbon dioxide?
Written By: McQ
I don’t know boss - it makes sense, given the cow tax and pig tax that’s aheading our way, that the Star Goat probably also produces volumes of carbon dioxide and other noxious green house gases.

Now I would have thought that the Star Goat threat was that it might eat the planet, but perhaps I was amiss and the genuine threat as explained to all the loonies that they loaded onto the Ark was that it would show up and produce methane and carbon dioxide in great quantities.

Personally I think the Star Goat eating the planet was more believable.

Urinating into a battery: Progress!

The battery is a microcosm for the envir-political machine: a lot of effort for little payoff.

Long ago, we used to call it "inefficient", now we see it as something with "potential".

"Urinating into a battery: "

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am going to need at least a D battery.

"now we see it as something with "potential"."

Nice pun. Intentional?
