On Black Friday, Why Not Think About Hotcoldwetdry Gifts?

So, now that Thanksgiving is over, Warmists turn their sights towards Christmas and making sure everything is super “sustainable”

Give a gift that sustains life on Earth

Before heading out to start your holiday shopping today, pause one moment to think about African elephants, polar bears and the Pacific walrus. They are among the world’s animals whose existence is threatened.

The Wolrd Wildlife Fund’s annual Living Planet Report warns us that human activity is outstripping the Earth’s resources, and has killed off 52 percent of the world’s mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish in just the last 40 years. Imagine how that pace will increase over the next four decades.

Compared to babies born today, those of us over 40 came into a world teeming with wildlife.

But thanks to over-fishing, over-hunting, deforestation, excessive carbon emissions and the inability to reduce global population growth, we have accelerated the loss of non-human life.

I was with them right up to “excessive carbon emissions”. And then they jumped to their over-population meme, which, of course, means providing contraception and abortions for minorities, meaning Black people, in third world nations.

Reducing our reliance on fossil fuels would also be a great Christmas gift to the natural world. Our insatiable thirst for oil has reached the Democratic Republic of Congo, where new technologies that permit deeper drilling have encouraged oil companies to explore for oil. The resulting loss of habitat for forest elephants, along with poaching for ivory, mean these great animals may well become extinct in our lifetime.

I wonder if the editorial board of The Olympian has given up their own reliance on fossil fuels.

Disappearing sea ice is also a problem for the Pacific walrus. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reports that 35,000 walrus have gone ashore in Alaska, where they are vulnerable to predators, because they normally safely rest on sea ice. In both cases, climate change resulting from overuse of fossil fuels is to blame.

Boy, that has been debunked so hard I’m surprised the editorial doesn’t grow from the computer screen like Pinocchio’s nose.

We can do that by using public transit more, and driving personal cars less. We can recycle, compost and support sustainable businesses. We can purchase fish certified by the Marine Stewardship Council, and lumber certified by the Timber Stewardship Council.

By “we”, they mean you.

I have to wonder how much the WWF paid them to write this editorial.

    Screw the friggin Walruses or is it Walrusi? Also the stupid Penguins, Polar Bears, and Elmfants. I just discovered that I am not sustainable. I’m gonna head for the last roundup B4 long. This sucks. Then I found out the Earth is not sustainable. The Sun will consume the first 3 planets when it winks out. More suckage. My only wish is that B4 final suction, the GreenyWeeny Lefty, Progtard Commies proceed me into the big suckarino into oblivion. Thanks, and have a nice forever after.
