It’s That Time Of The Year Again: Warmists Linking Thanksgiving And “Climate Change”

Whenever any type of big holiday comes up, you can always find some Warmist writing something nutty. I bet you thought the pinup featuring a plane in the earlier Sorta Blogless Sunday Pinup post was random, right? You might have been wondering why it wasn’t a Thanksgiving one. Here we go

Federal action needed to tame airline’s high-flying climate pollution

Some 24 million Americans will cram into airplanes for Thanksgiving travel this year. They’ll face flight delays, bag fees and hassles with reclining seats. And most will fly home in inefficient planes that spew far too much climate-damaging carbon pollution.

Greenhouse emissions from aviation are rising rapidly, even as scientists explain that we’re running out of time to avoid disastrous global warming effects, from dangerous temperature increases to food-supply disruptions.

You might be asking yourself if writer Vera Pardee has given up her own fossil fueled travel. She doesn’t say. Nor at the HuffPo article. Make sure to ask her at the story. Like most Warmists, she wants all sorts of restrictions and stuff on Other People. I’d say she probably hasn’t

We must push the EPA to propose meaningful emission reductions that allow us to fly with cleaner consciences and cleaner air. If we want to preserve a livable climate, we can’t tolerate further delay.

Humph.

It’s Time To Rethink Your Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner

…..

Skipping the meat this holiday season can also have a great positive impact on the environment. In the United States, animal agriculture has surpassed both the transportation industry and the electricity industry in emission of harmful greenhouse gasses, making the meat production the country’s leading cause of climate change. 35,000 miles of American rivers are polluted with animal waste and, outside of the U.S., two acres of rainforest are destroyed every minute to grow animal feed. By keeping meat off your table over the holidays, you’ll be doing your part to reduce your family’s carbon footprint and show your thankfulness to Mother Earth.

Notice how they are essentially demanding that you rethink that Thanksgiving dinner. They’re demanding that you go vegan.

A Vegan Gives Ten Reasons to Skip the Turkey This Thanksgiving

7. Skipping meat is good for the planet.
In the words of Moby: “Animal agriculture is responsible for producing more climate change gases than every car, boat, bus, truck, motorcycle and airplane on the planet. Combined.” Yes, really.

There are plenty more nutty articles where these came from. We also have
