SEARCH BLOG: POLITICS and CO2
With all of the talk about gasoline prices and renewable energy and CO2 polluting the earth, my wife and I have decided to take this Carbon Footprint pledge:
We will maintain our CO2 output and energy usage below Al Gore's 2007 levels.Okay, that's not fair. Mr. Gore has a big house because he has to entertain a lot of people who are concerned about global warming and carbon footprints. So, I'll amend that pledge:
We will maintain our CO2 output and energy usage at 50% below Al Gore's present levels.Sure, but I'm not taking into account the fact the Mr. Gore has to travel a lot to receive all of his environmental awards and preach to gospel of global warming. Fine, I'll amend that pledge:
We will maintain our CO2 output and energy usage at 25% of Al Gore's most recent levels. Satisfied?Great, that means I can increase my present consumption and footprint by 2 or 3 times.
Maybe it's time to buy that Hummer. Great prices right now.Don't you love it when our elitist, leftist politicians tell us that coal and oil make us sick or are poisoning the world... and then use more than 99.9% of the rest of the world?
