Check out this link about Carbon Belch Day. I just read about it on Ravelry’s Greencraft board and was utterly dismayed and annoyed and and… WTH?!?! After taking a quick browse of the group responsible for sponsoring this “day of action,” grassfire.org, I was shocked. Call me ignorant, but I couldn’t believe what I read about there. It’s like the antithesis of moveon.org.
Seriously now, even if you are skeptical about global warming and other environmental problems, why would you waste energy in such a way? It’s not like it’s free–it costs you an ever-increasing portion of income. But I suppose our country isn’t known for fiscal responsibility. (And I am part of the problem–I haven’t been as responsible with my finances in the past as I should have been, and now we’re trying to climb away from that irresponsibility, but it’s going to be a long haul.)
So, what do you think of Carbon Belch Day?
