Dangle a couple of strings of Tibetan prayer flags from your monster house and everything will be groovy, man.

Dangle a couple of strings of Tibetan prayer flags from your monster house and everything will be groovy, man. This pretentious bit of moral fraud is akin to slapping a "Keep Tahoe Blue" bumper strip on the bumper of your new SUV and thinking, hey, I've done my bit for the environment. That seems to be what passes for being thoughtful in some of the more oblivious, clueless social circles these days. Never mind the environmental cost of logging the trees, mining the metals and producing the gasoline, oil and plastics that go into the construction (and heating, cooling and ongoing maintenance) of a new monster house in America today. As we American consume five times (5X) our share of the world's limited resources we are floating on that ole river DeNile/denial. And the Bush neo-con idiots label anyone who opposes our theft and over-consumption of these resources in the third world as a "terrorist."

If you are truly concerned about protect the earth's environment you should not have children. But the idea of not reproducing is a very tall order for the self-absorbed self-centered folks living in the 21st century. Actually, we humans need to lower our current population levels by about 90% to significantly lower our ongoing negative impact on the world environment.

 

 

 

End.
