    Earth Day Network

    ^Check out the Partners... Classic.

    If Memory Serves me, these People were Predicting another Ice Age WAY back in the Neanderthal Days of the 1970's...

    Weren't they?...

    Anyway, it doesn't Matter if the Earth Warms or Cools, or stays 100% Average regarding Climate, these People will Find a way to Punish Humans for it.

    :)

    peace...

    please tell me you're kidding, hon.

    being responsible is not self-loathing.

    I Think MUCH of it is Based in Self-Loathing...

    I don't Burn my Trash in the Backyard and Dump my Oil in the Grass...

    I take Cans to get Recycled...

    I Drive a Honda Accord that's Recycled... 1992.

    We don't Need a Holiday and an Obvious Political Movement to do the Right thing on a Daily...

    Check the Earth Day Site...

    This is a Fucking Religion.

    And NO Matter what goes on regarding the Climate, Man will be the Bad Guy.

    It was that way in the 1970's when they were Scaremongering another Ice Age, and it's NO Different NOW.

    :)

    peace...

    Environmentalists think that man is the cause of all the earths woes and the worst thing to happen to the earth.

    That, Jill, is self loathing.

    no. that's the characterization by the rightwingnuts.

    there are extremists in every area. i don't have much use for PETA loons either and I love animals. but an acknowledgement that we EXACERBATE circumstances by not being good shepards of our environment is simply stupid.

    there is no self-loathing about it.

    Then I'm not Directing this Thread at you...

    I've already told you that I don't Deliberately Pollute, I Recycle and I Drive a Used Car that's 18yrs Old that gets Great Gas Mileage and Live in a Used House that's over 60yrs Old...

    The Earth Dayers... The One's who are Celebrating Today and Expecting others to Join them, even with Force of Law, are NO Different to me than the Birthers or the Truthers.

    :)

    peace...

    Cheaped out this morning and just found a $1.99 plastic Earth Day flag. Fifteen seconds of fun with a lighter. So...any other Earth Day activities for you?

    This self-loathing thing is out of control. I listened to the news last night and now the nuts are trying to say the volcaneos are going to erupt more in Iceland because the glaciers are melting. They claim the ice forms a cap with downward pressure to hold back the volcaneos. To me, that just sounds like something that would let the pressure build more and lead to a more violent eruption. Anyways, they are attempting to blame man. Pretty lame.

    Mr Rubin's article is interesting. And I agree with much of it. But just as I accept the Judeo-Christian principles underlying my country's legal system and sense of morals as being beneficial I can accept the tenets of the Green religion as being beneficial for humankind. I don't have to worship in a church, a synagogue or a forest, I just abide by the principles espoused.
