Toilet Paper –vs.- Hummers… Which Is Worse For The Environment

Listen dirt eater, it’s bad enough that your propaganda has every other kid in America guilt ridden every time mom drives them to soccer practice.

Now I’m supposing America is going to be filled with kids who are stressed out by the damage they are doing to mother earth every time they drop a deuce in the toilet!

That super-soft toilet paper you’re fond of using? It’s an ecological disaster, environmentalists say.

Millions of trees are harvested throughout the Americas – including rare old-growth forests in Canada – to sustain the United States’ obsession with quilted, ultra-soft, multi-ply toilet paper, the New York Times reported.

Although toilet paper manufacturers could produce products from recycled materials at a similar cost, the newspaper reported, the fiber taken from standing trees are necessary to help give the tissue its fluffy feel.

“No forest of any kind should be used to make toilet paper,” said Dr. Allen Hershkowitz, a senior scientist and waste expert with the Natural Resource Defense Council told the Times.

The United States is the largest market for toilet paper in the world, the newspaper reported, but tissue from 100 percent recycled fibers makes up less than 2 percent of sales for at-home use among conventional and premium brands. People from other countries throughout Europe and Latin America are far less picky about what they use to wipe.

“This is a product that we use for less than three seconds and the ecological consequences of manufacturing it from trees is enormous,” Hershkowitz told the Guardian newspaper, which cited the chemicals used in pulp manufacturing and process of cutting down forests.

 

Don’t worry granola boy, there is a solution.

Cloth wipes!

Using cloth toilet wipes actually has many advantages. For one, it’s a lot more comfortable and soft on your most delicate body parts. It’s also more economical, uses less paper, and saves you those late-night trips to the store. And cloth wipes can be used wet without any of the sopping disintegration that regular toilet paper is prone to.

Oh, you nasty, nasty freaks.

Shut Your Tree Hugging Mouth And Let Me Enjoy Christmas!

Can’t we get one dang day a year without some group of dirt eating tree huggers spewing their Al Gore gospel at us!?

I understand the following was meant for Australians but it still is highly annoying.

Courier Mail

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.

CSIRO researchers said householders should know that each bulb turned on in the name of Christmas will increase emissions of greenhouse gases.

I don’t even put up lights except on our Christmas tree, next year I’m decking out the whole dang house.

Can you not be a bunch of green meanies for one friggin day?

 

Justice For Mother Earth

An international court for the environment has been proposed  which would be the prevailing authority on all environmental legal matters.

The Telegraph

Stephen Hockman QC is proposing a body similar to the International Court of Justice in The Hague to be the supreme legal authority on issues regarding the environment.

The first role of the new body would be to enforce international agreements on cutting greenhouse gas emissions set to be agreed next year.

But the court would also fine countries or companies that fail to protect endangered species or degrade the natural environment and enforce the “right to a healthy environment“.

While “the first role of the new body would be to enforce international agreements”, the UN Climate Change Conference in Poznan, Poland got underway today to force international agreements.

I’m frankly surprised such an international court has not been proposed before; perhaps it has and I just missed it.

I don’t know if this court or any similar court will come into existence in the near future, but I am sure it is on it’s way.

Of course you know well who the worst offender of these international environmental agreements will be, America. You then also know which nation will be the most heavily fined and, or sanctioned, America.

America, you know that nation that provides the majority of U.N. funding.

America, the nation that brought the modern world to you.

 

The Enviro-Nazis are gearing up and now they will have a friend in the White House. Our refusal to jump on board with the Kyoto Agreement saved America millions of jobs and likely Trillions of dollars.

 

Barack Obama is short on ideas when it comes to global warming, but he does believe it does exist and that it is caused by man. He will not be a leader on this issue, he will be a follower of other nations. Basically, where ever the greenies train goes, Obama will be on board.

 

Think we have an economic crisis now? Wait until we get into the full swing of being ‘green’.

Holding on tight to your job right now? Better grasp it with both hands and tether yourself to it.

 

A global environmental court,  the undermining of the Posse Comitatus Act, don’t you just love the smell of fascism arriving in the morning.
