So, I'm watching Penn & Teller : Bullshit, and the topic of this episode was "Being Green". I've never discussed the whole "Green Movement" before on this blog, so I figure now is a better time than ever. For anybody that hasn't been alive for the past 35 years, the "Green Movement" is a push by environmentalist to get everybody to do their part in "saving the world". Now for my view, environmentalist are the worst perpertrators of "Earth murder". Environmentalist spout off their ideology about "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle", anybody that went to public school in New York City has probably been to an assembly about it. That is one of the biggest pieces of bullshit that I've ever heard! First of all, we cannot reduce our "carbon" output, with our ever growing population, our over production of items, and our expansion of land use. What are we suppose to stop procreating, eating, and living. Ever couple months these "environmentalist" build Whole Foods Markets and other "environmental" centers, using land. They say reuse, how are we going to reuse the current gas-powered automobiles, that they want to replace with hybrids and electric cars. These electric cars and hybrids require new stations to refill their batteries, and that means more land use. Even if we reuse certain items, eventually they will have to be disposed of, and some things, like plastic, are not biodegradable, and will have an impact on the planet anyway. Some products lose their integrity after usage and become hazardous to consumers. And the last word, recycling, is my biggest pet peeve. Almost everyday, I drive by a recycling center, I watch the smog come out the pipes and I think, how is this any better? The "environmentalist" never tell you about the energy cost for recycling centers and the cost of recycling centers. Recycling takes more time than virgin production and that means more money for employees, which means higher prices. The "Green Movement" is a racket (like organized religion), all these organic (expensive) products, these "green" businesses, and environmentalist groups. These things are set up to get money by playing on the guilt of consumers (sort of like how religions get offerings off of their parishioners guilt). I will not say that Global Warming is a myth, I believe it's truely occuring, but these environmentalist are using this to prey on peoples fears (like George W. Bush and Fox News, and religion, again). People are going out of their way to waste money on hybrids, carbon credits and other nonsense that won't neccessarily effect the Global Warming threat. What we need to do is spend that money to fund actual scientific endevours to investigate Global Warming and not do whatever Al Gore says (when he doesn't even do it).
Even when WINNING isn't probable, losing isn't optional!
If the world was really mine, I'd get rid of the snakes!
