Carbon Belch Day

Carbon Belch Day Says Pollute for the Planet! Will You?

Feel like the whole "Green" movement is about to give you a green movement of your own? There's a holiday planned just for you! June 12 has been declared "Carbon Belch Day" by the conservative alliance What does one do on such a holiday? Anything your consuming, carbon-abusing little heart desires: bottled water? Crush that petroleum bottle on your forehead. Run the dishwasher half full? Heck, yes!

140,000 people have already pledged to celebrate the big eco-emission, and it's not just for the sake of polluting — the want to rally support to oppose the Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Act, a measure which would establish a corporate carbon cap-and-trade system, a plan they think makes little sense. One of the organizers says "Somehow, this bogus idea of environmental indulgences has become accepted as a real and valid way to deal with our carbon guilt."

Want to see how bad you can be? They have a carbon calculator to let you see exactly "how big is your belch." Are they right — is promoting the fear of global warming exactly what the cause doesn't need? Is cap-and-trade a disaster? Is this a smart backlash ploy against a the threat of a big carbon-market place?

You do have a point stephley! Now that that problem is out of the way ... I'll focus my efforts on alternative energies! I hate paying more than $1.00 for a gallon of fuel! Lol.

Oh Geisha, they're not going to melt. Business will find a way to outsource the melting to poor countries that were threatening to nationalize everything. Everything's going to be just fine.

I'm am all for the Green Movement! But the Cap and Trade is total BULL! It's not going to have the impact that we need it to. The measures aren't drastic enough. And for those people who don't believe in Global Warming ... Ok, you think it's just natural and the Earth will always do it and there is nothing we can do to stop it. Well, even if that is the case ... it can't hurt to try, can it? I for one like to atleast think I am in somewhat control over my destiny. I would rather buy a goat to take care of my lawn than to throw in the towel and say "Forget it. I'm going to melt away anywayz." But hey, that's just me.

I think its funny, I also do what i can to conserve resources but i am not jumping on the hypocritical green movement bandwagon. There are women at my work who will all but behead you for washing your hands too long, or tossing out a can, or if they caught me passing gas i would probably be stoned.

actually i was more responding to dave's comment... and now that i'm re-reading it i will take back what i said. i thought he said "i'll do... nothing towards saving the earth" and not "it'll do", which explains why i was enraged. but thanks for giving me the green light to paint you as evil and feel better than everyone! now if i can only convince my friends to do the same thing.

yy I don't even want to start with you. I've said hundreds of times before that I don't live a wasteful life and am generally aware of my impact on the planet. But, whatev, you can make me out to be evil :evil: if you want, if it makes you feel happy and better than me.

why is it cool to bash conserving our resources? i doubt you'll find it as funny when we are not only fighting wars for oil, but water and food too. wake up people.

not like it matters, because when obama becomes president he will single handedly lower the oceans and heal the planet. and unicorns will crap ice cream `4m':

I find it hilarious. It'll do about as much as the "Green Days" do towards saving the earth, which is nothing.
