I found this online and thought I'd share. Some may laugh, others may get upset....good.
The hysteria surrounding global warming is a crock. The idea that human beings are destroying the planet with BBQs and hair spray is stupid and silly.
All clear thinking, rational human beings should refuse to accept this nonsense. Use the following chart as your 'how-to' guide and learn to enjoy
more of the wonderful resources our Earth has to offer.
I encourage readers to stop feeling guilty if they choose NOT to recycle. It's time to burn those fossil fuels. Get out and drive your SUV...And by
all means, leave the farting cows alone!
1. Remove your energy-saver bulbs and go back to normal lights.
Your home should emit a soft, warm, comforting glow. Dull gray office lights have no business in a home. Normal lights look so much better than those
2. Rinse your driveway and walkways with water instead of using a blower.
A good wash removes stuck on dirt, grass and dead bugs that a blower simply can't touch. Plus, by hosing down your driveway instead of blowing you
can avoid kicking up all of that allergy causing dust and debris.
3. Fart more during the day.
The average person produces about a half liter of fart gas per day. If you increase that amount to ¾ of liter you will probably feel less bloated and
be a little friendlier to people around you. Fart gas may contain methane which is a greenhouse gas.
4. Set your air conditioner thermostat to whatever temperature you want.
Some spring nights you may want to enjoy the cool spring air by sleeping with a window open and leaving the heater on. Haven't you ever driven at
night in a convertible with the top down and the heat on? It's a great feeling.
5. Use a BBQ smoker at least once a month.
There is no better tasting food on this planet than smoked meat. Smoked ribs, smoked ham and even smoked salmon. It's simply delicious! Some people
think clouds of billowing smoke rising out of your backyard will increase global warming.
6. Chop down trees.
If you prefer open views and sunshine, a big ugly tree obstructing your landscape can be nuisance. The truth is, some trees are better off turned into
firewood. Trees are a100% renewable resource. if we need more, we can plant more.
7. Grab extra packets of ketchup when you visit a fast food joint.
By taking lots of extra packs you can be sure you'll have enough sauce to cover each and every fry. And when you toss the extra stuff you don't need
into the garbage you can deliver more waste to the landfills and cause more packets to be made.
8. Allow the water to run while you brush your teeth.
The sound of water running early in the morning can have a calming effect as you prepare for school or work.
9. Stay away from organic foods.
Foods grown without pesticides are more prone to parasites and disease. Large factories requiring lots of energy are needed to produce chemical
pesticides. More factories could also mean more jobs for people who need them.
10. Be sure to set your dishwasher to 'heat dry' rather than 'air dry'.
Get ALL of your dishes dry faster. The heat setting can also reduce the number of spots appearing on the glasses.
11. Drive an SUV. A nice big sport utility vehicle allows you to haul more of your stuff in greater comfort.
Why not live life in luxury? Stretch out and relax. You should not have to contort your body and legs around a tiny steering wheel and fit into
someone else's idea of acceptable transportation.
12. Always turn your water heater up to the maximum temperature setting.
This way you can use a little less of the hot water in your hot/cold mix to make your shower warm. This also allows you to take longer showers, wash
more clothes and enjoy a bath where a tub of water actually reaches the top before it gets too cold.
13. Hold the lever down a little longer when you flush the toilet.
Since so many of us are now using these tiny, little, girley-man, 1.6gpf ultra-low flow toilets, holding the lever a bit longer to completely empty
the tank will increase the chance everything will actually get down. When you empty the toilet reservoir tank, you force the sewage treatment facility
to take more crap and water and spend more energy working to process the stuff before it's dumped in the ocean.
14. Never use mass transit.
What if, on your way home from work, you want to stop and get a pizza? What if you want to take the scenic route as you drive to the office? What if
you simply decide at the last minute to ditch work and go to the beach? Public buses and trains deprive you of your ability to do what you want when
you want to.
15. Use hot water to wash your clothes.
The best way to clean white clothes is with hot water and a little bleach. Cold water simply doesn't do the job. This is also the method to use if
you need to disinfect sheets and towels after having those nasty relatives over for a visit. In most cases, using hot water requires the burning of
fossil fuel. Some people think the more we burn fossil fuels, the more we will increase global warming.
16. Wash smaller loads in your wash machine.
Washing your clothes more frequently means you'll have more fashion choices each morning. Plus, by running smaller loads, you can be sure that your
clothes are getting as clean as possible.
17. Remove the flow restrictors from your low-flow shower heads.
Simply open them up with a screwdriver, punch out the plastic restrictor and once again enjoy the nice, strong shower you deserve.
18. Avoid buying a new car solely for its fuel economy.
Cars that get the best gas mileage are almost always the ugliest cars on the road. The truth is, while you may be saving 3 or 4 dollars on a tank of
gas, you almost always look like an idiot driving a Kia.
19. Stop recycling your bottles and aluminum cans.
The time it takes to separate your recyclables is not worth the hassle. How much do you really make on the deal? A dollar a bag? - or some other
ridiculously insignificant amount. Plus, have you ever thought about all of the money your city makes off of recyclables? Don't you think it's a
little unfair that we have to pay the city to haul away items that they will in turn sell for a profit? Start dumping your recyclables in the trash
where they belong.
20. Always accept a free sample.
Especially at the grocery store, a tiny, little half cooked sausage or a cheesy cracker may be just what you need to quell those rising hunger pains
as you shop. The energy required to slaughter the animal for sausage and fry it up nice and good is the same energy that some people think will
increase global warming.
21. Always drive a little over the speed limit.
In some states you can get away with driving as much as 15mph over the posted speed limit. Driving a little faster will help you arrive at your
destination quicker, giving you more time to do other things.
22. Never reuse old faxes.
Have you ever seen people use both sides of the paper in their fax machines? Don't they realize the other side bleeds through making both sides
difficult to read...Never mind trying to figure out which side is the most current. Faxes should be treated like toilet paper. You use one side and
throw it out.
23. Trade in your gas BBQ for a charcoal grill.
The quick start convenience of a gas grill is great but, you can't beat the taste of food cooked on an old fashioned charcoal grill. Also, refilling
or swapping out your used propane tanks is so much more of a hassle than dumping a bag of coals.
24. Leave your outdoor lights on through the night.
One of the best forms of home security is a well lit perimeter. Criminals are attracted to dark spaces and avoid targets that have bright lights.
While you may be able to keep the burglars away, some people think the extra lights will increase global warming.
25. Ask for more junk mail.
Use a fake name to get on as many mailing lists as possible. There's a small chance you may actually see something you like. As the ads arrive simply
toss the unwanted stuff into the garbage. The more ads you receive the more trees have to be cut down to produce more paper. This too may help add
jobs to the economy.
26. Don't buy recycled copier paper.
It's usually more expensive and it always has that weird grayish hue that never looks quite right. When you avoid recycled paper, you increase the
number of trees being turned into pulp and this is a good thing.
27. Double or even triple bag your groceries at the supermarket.
Use as many bags as you need to ensure your items don't burst through the bottom. The goal is to deliver your goods from the market to your pantry in
as near perfect condition as possible. What global warming freak is going to pay for your broken Kahlua bottles if the one-bag theory doesn't hold
28. Do not use re-refined oil in your car.
Other than it costing more, there is something just not right about putting someone else's old lube in your hot new ride. When you avoid re-refined
oil, you encourage the oil companies to explore, drill and produce more energy.
29. Print online articles and stop reading from your computer screen.
This list of '29 things' was written by those mean old conservative Republicans at MetroSpy.com (www.metrospy.com...
). We want you to know,
this list should be printed and read from a sheet of paper. After you've read the list, throw that paper in the trash. If you want to read it again,
simply print it again! DO NOT READ THIS LIST FROM YOUR COMPUTER SCREEN!!
