What Would George Carlin do?
09:11 PM on 04/22/2010
Don't fly - FAIL
Eat vegetarian - FAIL
Don't have a child - FAIL

Until we stop proselytizing these ridiculous notions that most can't help but reject wholeheartedly, we will only succeed in achieving the unification of the opposition. Sorry, but these kinds of "solutions" do exactly what PETA does - and that is to rally the mass majority of the population to dismiss them entirely. They actually hurt the feasible, rational solutions of reducing plastic consumption, using alternative fuels, and buying local.

Meet the teabaggers of the left.

They seem to want a all or nothing scenario. Fanned for pointing it out.

MSNBC is reporting that the U.S. Military (biggest consumer of fossil fuels on the planet) is now embarking on ... green (sustainable, renewable, cheaper) alternatives). This is a good thing. Consciousness-raising is a powerful step in the right direction. So, today, I applaud, if true, the U.S. Military (whoever they are!), and if MSNBC follows up to make sure it is, the blob called the "U.S. Military" follows through ... WE SHALL SEE.

On this Earth Day, let us reflect on how powerless we really are against the forces of nature and the climate. Who better to teach this lesson than the late great George Carlin.

Don't have a baby is like saying come into this world and not leave a living legacy of your existence. What would be the point? To consume, chase after a man made commodity called money, eat vegetables, put up some solar panels, don't use any plastic, walk to work and shop local. Use as many other resources as you can, and use up everything you hoard before you die because you have no one to pass it down to. Wow, the don't have children one for me was stunning.

Agreed! A startling bit of advice, but makes us aware of the effects that overpopulation and increasing use of resources is having on our planet.

Then we pause to think about the "one child" rule in China. Hmmmm.

We're not used to thinking about this in terms of ourselves are we?

Why do you conservatives get so weak kneed over Wall Street?

They are MULTI-NATIONAL corporations who have NO LOYALTY to America or any other country.

They pollute indiscriminately and force US the TAXPAYERS to clean it up via DEREGULATION.

Long before we use up the resources in this world, we will kill each other over them. It is Human nature. Environmental regulation hastens the wars to come by artifically limiting those resources.

Why do you disagree with the idea of clean renewables?

I don't disagree with the idea, I live in the world where they don't exist in the critical mass needed. If Michael J. Fox zooms in from the future with MR. Fusion, that may change, but I live in reality, not Hollywood.

That's kinda ironic on Earth day isn't it.

On what possible ground is this thread fully moderated?
Anyway, while many solutions proposed are good and realistic, you then have this deeply nihilistic perspective, "don't have a baby", put side by side with "don't use plastic" or "go green energy".
