How’s The Greening Of The Dem Convention Going?

Funnily! It reminds me of a 3 Stooges episode

As the Mile High City gears up to host a Democratic bash for 50,000, organizers are discovering the perils of trying to stage a political spectacle that’s also politically correct.

Consider the fanny packs.

he host committee for the Democratic National Convention wanted 15,000 fanny packs for volunteers. But they had to be made of organic cotton. By unionized labor. In the USA.

Official merchandiser Bob DeMasse scoured the country. His weary conclusion: “That just doesn’t exist.”

Ditto for the baseball caps. “We have a union cap or an organic cap,” Mr. DeMasse says. “But we don’t have a union-organic offering.”

And it gets better and better. They are going to have people going around making sure every bit of garbage goes in juuuuust the right container, and will have people pawing through the garbage to verify. Disgusting!

Seriously, most of this is not “green,” but climate change silliness. Green is about protecting the environment. Climate change is about making sure to blame Man for everything, and blame America. They are even taking it to new lows

Democrats say the point is to build habits that will endure long after the convention. To that end, the city has staged “greening workshops” attended by hundreds of caterers, restaurant owners and hotel managers. “It’s the new patriotism,” Mayor Hickenlooper says.

I’m not even going to go there on that one.

    I think any effort to reduce our impact on the environment (regardless of whether one does it to reduce greenhouse gases or simply reduce pollution) should be applauded not ridiculed. People may disagree on the science but the results will be the same.

    Green really is the new patriotism because protecting the environment and promoting energy independence is something we can all agree on.

  2. Doing it for the environment is great. Doing it for “climate change” is not. You know how much it annoys me to subsume real environmental issues under the global warming/climate change banner. They deserve to stand on their own.

  3. Silke says:

    If the result is the same why should you care? We all have different motives for doing good things. As a conservative I can’t believe you are criticizing people for their thoughts – especially on an issue where reasonable people can disagree over the science.

    I think what teach is saying silke, is that if you want to do something to help the environment, great. more power to you. It is good to see you backing up your beliefs with actions. But don’t MAKE me do the same thing based on some pseudo-science theory masquerading as scientific fact.

  5. MBP is pretty much dead on.
