In what one could possibly call the biggest group effort in the practice of ignorance and stupidity, we now have this:
Conservative grassroots group Grassfire.org wants people to waste as much energy as possible on June 12 by “hosting a barbecue, going for a drive, watching television, leaving a few lights on, or even smoking a few cigars.”
Grassfire.org said it chose June 12 as the day it wants Americans to rev up their SUVs because it coincides with expected debate in Congress over a $1.2 billion carbon tax rebate program. “Carbon Belch Day will have at least as much impact on the so-called ‘planetary emergency’ of man-made global warming as the goofy save the earth mandates telling us to turn our lights off for an hour.”
I am not making this up. As I have written before, even if global warming is not happening, why do some people think it is a good idea to waste energy and pollute? I will never understand the mentality of these kind of people…ever.
