A little late but here it is
belichickfan and obi wan came to mind, I bump this for them
I thought of Fog actually lol.
Can't watch it here at work but if you aren't actively doing something (other than talking about it) then you have no room to talk.
so your assumption is that we aren't? interesting....... I suppose if that's what you have to rely on.....
Not the word "if" in my statement
I assume more aren't, though, because in my thread about "what are you doing for earth day" there were no serious replies.
So "if" most people aren't doing anything, then that means the issue isn't important. If most people are obese does that mean obesity isn't a problem? Solid logic.
I cAN BACKUP MY STATEMENTS with actions that provided positive results..
unlike sackless repubs with I support the troops bumperstickers who only provide support via being politicalmessageboard warriors bush ball washers
Some good earth day stuff on the result of well intentioned lib policies.
I'll try to dig up an article I came across aboput statements made by greenies on the first earth day. really hilarious and incorrect stuff.
Short of a Crime, Anything Goes: Interior Department Corruption Scandal Widens
Last fall, Interior Department Inspector General Earl Devaney testified before Congress that "simply stated, short of a crime, anything goes at the highest levels of the Department of the Interior."  New revelations about the relationship between two high-ranking administration officials add new meaning to Devaney's charge.
Sue Ellen Wooldridge, the Justice Department's top environmental attorney and a former political appointee at the Interior Department, recently resigned after disclosing her long-term relationship with J. Steven Grilesâ€”the Interior Department's former deputy secretary whose ties to disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff are the subject of a criminal investigation. Wooldridge played a lead role in responding to earlier ethics investigations of Griles, at times even helping deflect allegations against him.
Griles was a top lobbyist for the mining, oil and gas industries before joining the Interior Department. While at Interior he was the subject of a high-profile ethics investigation into his continued contacts with his clients, despite having signed a recusal agreement when he took office. Environmental groups repeatedly pointed out that Griles was also receiving $284,000 per year from his former lobbying firm during each of the four years he was on the government payroll.
According to the Legal Times, while serving as deputy chief of staff to
No, it means if you aren't doing something then STFU about others not doing anything.
More stupidity from greenie leftist:
(note a press release from a non profit, thus > 4 para):
The global warming stuff will sound as stupid in 40 years as their tripe from 1970 sounds now. But they are lefties so good intention trump policies effects even when it causes shortages of food or the deaths of millions from malaria.
Ok. so what is the relevance of that to earth day. Because most people aren't doing anything then raising awareness isn't good? Bottom line: you don't care about the environment because it's inconvenient for big business, so you don't want to hear about it and you don't want to believe in environmental problems. You, like many on the right, want to bury your heads in the sand because it's easier for you to do so. Everything else you say is just a simple rationalization for that.
From what I can tell the answer is : no relevance whatsoever.
What is so astoundingly stupid about that article is that certain measures were taken to cerrect those problems. They also lack context. I can find religious lunatics on this board that think evolution isn't real, so I suppose i can hold all of religion responsible for that? Global warming is far more widespread and agreed upon than any of those things. Not to mention that earth day isn't about just globval warming. Though I suspect you think pollution is fine.
Nothing was done, these folks were just flat out wrong. I am old enough to remember the scare tatics back then perhaps you are not...
The anti evolution folks aren't trying to change our economy or what we can do with our property or making STUPID policy decisions that result in the deaths of MILLIONS. get a clue.
Of course Earth Day falls on VI Lenin's birthday.
Yes melting polar ice caps, air quality, rising temperature, increasingly erratic weather patterns etc. will save millions of lives. And I need to get a clue
by the way, do you have any idea how much biological and medicinal sciences operate off of what we;ve learned about evolution? Now THAT has saved millions of lives. So yeah, like you said, get a clue.
Look up malaria and DDT.
