I guess I simply fail to understand why doing things like:
- not using aerosol sprays
- not driving petroleum fueled vehicles
- not giving my time or money to Gores' cause
- not using CFC's
- not exhaling carbon dioxide
- not interviening in the natural order of animals killing animals
- not buying the hype that only certain things are biodegradable
- not trying to save the rain forests (as if I ever could)
- not saving the whales
- simply existing
automaticly means that I am against the environment and the world will come to an early end because of me.
Why does not doing these things mean that in the public eye, I am worse than socialist governments that out right murder people?
How does not doing these things stop a vulcanic eruption or meteor (global killer) from wiping out entire civilizations?
How does not doing these things automaticly translate to me being an evil person that does not care? because I do care. I care a great deal about how large numbers of people get so easily duped by a simgle person that's just learned how to be persuasive but
actaully does not have in his heart the best interests of anyone but himself.
I wonder why no one even thinks about airplanes. When 911 happened and all the planes across the US were instantly grounded, things almost instantly started to show improvement (studies were actually done on this). No one considers the raw fuel that planes
just DUMP into the atmosphere. This has to be considerably more than what cars do.
I guess I just find it more interesting that environmentalism is born of politics and lunatics hell bent on fascist ideas of how to control what people do. Gore claims the debate is over. If it was over, it would no longer be debated.
I would certainly agree that it's wrong to be wastefull. Littering is bad and there are certain things that just shouldn't be done. But it is not wrong to question messages like this when they come from such questionable people with such powers and questionable
I wonder how much money Gore has enjoyed from the profits of the oil industry.
If I'm going to be preached to by Gore about how to do things....he needs to be foremost on the scene for showing me through his own actions what to do. He talks alot, but he does exactly the opposite of what he preaches. Let him ride bicycles to work and drive
electric cars for a while. Let him give up his jet first...before I give up my truck. Dr. King lead by example and that alone is what made him great. Gore is nothing more than a power hungry fool who gets money from bigger fools.
