Asking for a friend…
We’ve known about climate change, (formally known as Global Warming) for decades. For as long as I can remember I haven’t purposely burnt large piles of Styrofoam containers in my yard as to do my part in combating climate change. So with all the forced regulations in car companies making our cars lighter and more fuel efficient (and less safe) why are we still having a climate change problem? We’ve thrown tons of money at the problem, created huge solar farms covering up plenty of oxygen producing grass. We’ve built huge eyesore wind farms and kill birds. We’ve cut back on fossil fuels. Shouldn’t it be getting better and not worse? What are we supposed to do?
I’ve been voting for several elections now and I don’t recall so much hostility towards any president as much as our current one. I’ve never seen so many commercialized insults towards President Trump and now it seems that candy companies are throwing their hat in the ring. Just because you have freedom of speech doesn’t give you the freedom to be disrespectful towards your fellow humans. Well I guess it does.
But let’s remember that even if someone is “your enemy”then treating them with kindness is like dumping burning coals on them. Got that from some book, not sure which one. I think it’s the same one as the golden rule or something.
I’ve had this one almost as long as I’ve been alive. I got him for my first birthday. He still hasn’t disintegrated thus far. Not sure how anyone can ban Pooh from anything. He’s such a nice bear we overlook the gorging on the honey. I mean, he even has a ride at Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom. There isn’t any higher honor than that.
Do you know someone who is always on the opposite side of your opinion? I’m not talking about your spouse, it’s supposed to be that way. But someone who always starts out their response with “Well, actually…”
Star Wars vs Star Trek, DC vs Marvel, Republican vs Democrat vs some weird 3rd party, Christian vs Pagan (Don’t even get me started on the Religious subcultures, that’s an issue that loses more friendships than any)
Some people just like to hear your opinion first so they can play “devil’s advocate” and just to get on your nerves. It’s tough to be friends with people like this. How do you deal with it? Well, you can always ask a bunch of follow up questions if they are the type of person that makes statements. The best way is just to keep quiet and not share your opinions. Someone can’t shoot you down if you don’t give them any ammo. Read twitter posts, Facebook status and just grin and move on. But you can’t can you? So if you must be right all the time, unleash your best with no mercy and enjoy no friendships.
What are we supposed to do now that the majority of the developed world now has access to clean water and clean air because of fossil fuels? Fossil fuels are cheap, plentiful and because of technology, we’ve made them clean than ever. Still, people are freaking out about climate change aka “Global Warming”. Here’s what to do.
Stop using your AC/Heat
Want to stop using fossil fuels? Then don’t heat or cool your house. Each year the planet gets hotter because people are using air conditioning or heating their house because they get cold.
Your sweat will be your shower from not using your HVAC system. Since we have greater access to clean and drinkable water because of fossil fuels, we should now use less.
Stop flushing your toilet
Let it flush automatically buy the natural volume of your excrement. Again forget clean water, treat your house like a porta potty.
Don’t buy groceries
No groceries equals no trash and no landfills, grow all your own food, but only vegetables.
Ride your bike everywhere
Including your trek across America with your family of four. Remember having more than two children effects climate change.
It seems to me that Hollywood wants to turn all of their viewers into a third world country because of climate change. Remember, movies became popular because they were the first to get air conditioning. Maybe if we stop cooling our theaters then our celebrity elite will wake up.
