Global Warming Insanity

The global warming cultists continue to come up with assinine ideas for saving the planet.  Here are just a few of the items that I have heard of lately.
  1. A new book has been released called Time to Eat the Dog: The Real Guide to Sustainable Living which says that a medium sized pet dog has the same carbon footprint as an SUV and you would be better off owning a goldfish or canary.  Try playing catch with a canary, and when was the last time a barking goldfish scared off an intruder.
  2. California, the United Kingdom, and the European Union are looking at banning plasma televisions.  Thank God I have yet to be able to afford one of those and am still using an old fashioned tube TV.  
  3. A New York Times environmental reporter has floated the idea of offering carbon credits to families that limit themselves to having one child.  Tough break there for Jon & Kate Plus 8.
  4. The state of California was also considering a ban on black cars.  Suffice to say that I was going to make a smartass remark in regards to what would be the next thing to ban, but I censored myself.  Use your imagination.
I have said it before and will say it again, the whole environmental movement is all about controlling your lifestyle and the choices you make.
