Just a thought. . .

Some say that we need to stop adding to the global warming by ceasing the use of gas powered engines and stop using coal for energy. I say ‘sure’ we should all do this, in fact, to start I say that first those that have said this should lead the way my turning their automobiles over to a junkyard or at least, the ENGINES that use that type of ‘bad’ power sources. You can’t say, ‘well, I only use MY car to drive a mile or so, I ride a bike otherwise. That is the same as telling a VEGAN that while you support not using animals for food, you do so by ‘only’ eating that burger once in awhile! IT IS THE SAME HYPOCRACY! Either you go all in or you stop complaining that people aren’t doing it! I told a person working at Whole Foods that I only eat meat sometimes; they told me I was STILL part of the problem until I quit eating meat COMPLETELY! I agree, until I stop eating meat, no matter how little it is, I am supporting the slaughter of ALL animals for food, as long as I drive a car, no matter how little I drive it, as long as it is using gasoline, I am part of the problem. Until I stop BEING part of the problem, I actually have no right to tell or expect others to ‘do as I SAY do and not as I DO!

 

Comments? I am mostly sure I am looking at ONE person in particular, but I bet he or she (not naming names here) will respond other than to say how our president is as bad as it gets, but not actually taking the blame for his (or hers, still not naming names) is really doing by driving that car around Baltimore (or wherever he or she lives and works).

 

That is ‘all’.

You DEFINITELY listen to ...

You DEFINITELY listen to too much (which is ANY) Rush Limbaugh. The poor excuse for a human being is a DRUG ADDICT. He is a DRUG ADDICT who said that ALL DRUG USERS should be locked away in jail FOREVER. But he is a HYPOCRITE because he fought his being locked away for even a single day. He is a liar also because he says he is no longer on drugs. Well, he STILL says things EXACCCCTLY like what you just pretended was your own writing when it was not, it is his, and that is DRUG INDUCED LOGIG, the likes of which any unintoxicated person can recognize immediately the way a trained cop can tell if you've been drinking before any formal testing when you're THAT screwed up. There are certain dead giveaways and THAT kind of messed up ill logic is absolutely one of them. Either go straighten out or stop kissing the toes of that Rush Limbaugh demon or both. It's disgusting Walter. You're better than that. I know you are.

even I was lost there...

even I was lost there...

<p>OK, you don't see the ...

OK, you don't see the utter lack of reason in your argument? And you say you're not drunk or anything or having your reason twisted by the druggie Limbaugh?

OK, I'll buy that then. Some just aren't as quick to understand all logic, others still may never be able to wrap their head around certain concepts. Whatever the reason, here's where your logic fails and fails completely, you wrote the following:

You can’t say, ‘well, I only use MY car to drive a mile or so, I ride a bike otherwise. That is the same as telling a VEGAN that while you support not using animals for food, you do so by ‘only’ eating that burger once in awhile! IT IS THE SAME HYPOCRACY! Either you go all in or you stop complaining that people aren’t doing it!

First, yes I can. I do drive only one mile to work and I do use over 30 CFL light bulbs in my house which burn a grand total of 360 watts (if all were on at once but I leave them off whenEver not actually in the room or needing to have them while in the room). If you use incandescents you would be using 1800 watts, FIVE TIMES MORE. Drive the average commute to work around here and you're burning 450% more gas than I do every single work day! Drive a car that gets one third less mileage though (and MOST ALL OF THEM DO) then you burn around 600% more gas than I do.

YES I absolutely CAN AND WILL SAY I MAKE A DIFFERENCE. I POLLUTE LESS. OUR CLEAN AIR WILL LAST LONGER BECAUSE OF ME. The lives of many animals are also spared; they are not slaughtered because I do eat less meat than most Americans, a LOT less. These are facts. Nothing you try and dictate to me about what I can say or not will change them. And you can not argue that these are not facts without proving yourself to be a most pitiful fool.

So just give it up. STOP trying to tell others they are a little wrong so therefore you can justify being a LOT MORE WRONG. That is your logic. It is ILL-LOGIC at best. At worst it is deliberate and IMMORAL of you to deliberately try and twist things.

And to tell me I don't support alternative fuel sources, "green" renewable ones??? Have you gone completely mad? Really Walter. You read what I write here. Do you just not comprehend it or are you choosing to deliberately ignore it? Again, either way is not good. I'm very disappointed in you Walter. You ARE better than that.

We all do our part, you ...

We all do our part, you twit! Walter is right. It's all or nothing when you claim to be that. We don't lord it over people and announce on this website how special we are.

Sorry Chubby but that is ...

Sorry Chubby but that is not at all correct . I can do a LOT and that DOES MATTER. You can do little or nothing to help solve the problem and that does matter too. What have you done to contribute or are you just another one of those making the excuse that we MUST become either 100% perfect or else we are total failures and therefore you being a deliberate failure to a greater extent are somehow justified? That's SICK logic. It is the sign of a mentally ill or a morally deranged person.

Walter, you are doing what? Tell us? Are you doing as much as I am? Do you make sacrifices? Sometimes comfort isn't more important than the safety of our environment. When that is gone there is NOTHING LEFT.

Our atmosphere goes up only a few short miles (3-4) and then there is no more. It is easy to pollute it to the point where it becomes uninhabitable. Is that what you want? We are doing that. We can slow down that process for now until we become able to completely stop it. The more we slow it down the longer we will have to come up with alternatives. You may not like those facts but they are facts regardless.

So what are you doing to help us all survive? On a ship you either be a part of the effort, all hands on deck in a storm, or you are sent overboard. There is no room for selfish lazy slackers. We are all part of this spaceship we call Earth, third rock from the sun. It is up to each and every one of us to live here using our resources fairly and not hogging them selfishly, polluting the air the rest of us depend upon to breath and not overheating the place to the boiling point. How DARE you use more than your fair share and then try to tell others that because we use ANY AT ALL that this fact somehow excuses YOUR EXCESSES! HOW DARE YOU.

I don't think that anyone ...

I don't think that anyone is asking us to give up ours cars, they're just asking for alternatives to what we have now.
