Bah, Humbug ...
Posted by: McQ on Saturday, December 27, 2008

How about a little guilt trip now that Christmas is over? Not a problem. You can always find a pair of post-holiday Scrooges somewhere to fill that bill. For instance, from Australia:
Scientists have warned that Christmas lights are bad for the planet due to huge electricity waste and urged people to get energy efficient festive bulbs.
No, really, I'm not making that up. Thank goodness we're now all aware of the waste, no? And as if that isn't bad enough:
Wasted food at Christmas time is now being highlighted as an environmental problem.

Jon Dee, the chairman of Do Something, says gases from leftover food rotting in landfill are 20 times more potent than the carbon pollution from car exhausts.
I'm sometimes amazed at the length to which the AGW crowd will go in an attempt to make their claim that man is the single worst environmental threat/blight on the planet, but I have to admit that these two, using a popular holiday to politicize their point, are about as low as you can go.

Here is a headline story I would love to see - but never will (darn, darn, darn):

DEMOCRATS’ POLITICAL SPEECHES CAUSE CLIMATE CHANGE: GOVERNMENT REPORT

Washington, D.C. - A new report from the official government office on Climate Change under President Barack Obama reported today that the combination of hot air and blather from Democrats on Capitol Hill and at the White House are a major source of the world-wide problem.

Tsitra Tihsllub, a spokespersonwoman for the Office of Climate Response and Policy (OCRAP), said at the release of the report that the speeches of Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) alone "are fueling the world-wide climate change phenomena."

"Reid and his fellow Democrats, of which I am one, are only hurting the planet with their incessive comments, reports, speeches, and lengthy discussions on some policy matters that, to be honest, are far too long and are belching hot air into the atmosphere. Senator Reid’s carbon footprint for 2009 must be that of 200 ordinary people, if not more."

Now THAT would be a story I could read and agree with. For once.

I also have to warn you all that laughing, crying, exercising, walking up and down stairs all make people breathe more often causing more carbon into the air. This MUST stop! (And no more of that nasty male/female hanky panky. That REALLY raises your carbon footprint.) )

Where do they get these numbers? 20 times ALL the cars? I think they just make these numbers up.

Yes. It’s well known that 67% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

When you eat the food, the bacteria in your gut can often convert it into significant quantities of methane, which is 40 x more of a greenhouse gas than CO2, in addition to all of the CO2 produced in respiration.

Therefore, all food should be wasted and not eaten, less we fart our way into global catastrophe.

C’mon folks! We should look at this new information in awe and embrace it. Then we can finally alter our erroneous views and ’get on board’ the Al Gore express to salvation. Indeed, once we all agree, we can insist Al and his AGW legions are first in line to put the gun to their heads and pull the trigger thus solving this truly awful situation once and for all. We promise we’ll follow...honest. (snort)
