It’s enough to make you say bah humbug!

Don’t look at me, I’m not dreaming of a green, environmentally sound Christmas. But these, people are. Grinch green maybe. Don’t get me wrong. I’m all for a cleaner safer enivironment. However, the people in the following articles take it a bit far.

  • Divorce contributes to global warming (Via Yahoo News) So don’t get married and don’t have kids and you will help save the planet? Don’t celebrate holidays either. Just keep reading.
  • Christmas Trees contribute to global warming(Via Tree Hugger)
  • Have a Vegetarian Christmas Dinner Instead of traditional Christmas dinner serve nuts, berries, fruits, veggies. Instead of gift giving make charitable donations. Just try to explain that to your 4 year old. I’m not against charitable giving. I just prefer to give people gifts because I like to see their reactions. (Via Stop Global Warming)
  • Green Shopping From the article: “Our first tip really is to go for a stuff-free holiday,” said Sarah van Schagen, assistant editor for Grist, an online environmental magazine.
    That might mean giving gift certificates for “experiences” instead of presents or IOUs for chores. Other low-impact ideas include shopping for locally produced goods and buying items made from environmentally safe materials.

      In regards to the divorce article: If staying married is more environmentally friendly than getting a divorce, then embracing polygamy would make me even more environmentally friendly than just being married. wow!!

      Perhaps people going through divorce should be forced to buy carbon credits. Hmmm. I think I smell a business opportunity!

      I can’t wait to fire up my big-block pickup to go out shopping for the holidays – plenty of plastic and carbon-based goods for all, and double-meat Christmas dinner! I’m thinking prime rib AND turkey! Christmas tree AND a wreath! Hell yeah!
