Gizmodo: Can You Be A Warmist And Still Enjoy A Burger?

An interesting question

From the article itself

You Can Eat a Burger and Still Fight For the Planet

I eat meat. Not every day but most days. I also eat out at least twice a week. That means take-out containers and plastic. I ride the New York City subway just about every day, and I try to avoid cabs. However, I also plan to own a car one day, and I fly for work often enough.

I’m an environmentalist, but I’m not perfect. And I don’t intend to be.

To some, that may sound controversial. To others, it may even sound hypocritical. To all, I say: Screw you! While individuals are free to shape their lifestyles to align with their environmental values, eating salads and riding bikes aren’t going to save the world. Only forcing the fossil fuel industry to clean up its act will—and until that happens, I refuse to believe people should be shamed for living in the world we’ve built.

Of course, these are mostly not environmental values, but Cult of Climastrology values. And a typical deflection in which Yessenia Funes absolves herself of any wrongdoing., choosing instead to blame Big Oil for providing a product that people want.

The shame game has been real lately. Ever since Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez introduced her Green New Deal resolution, she’s been getting attacked from all fronts because, well, she’s no saint. PETA gave her shit for not going vegan. The New York Post recently called her out for riding in cars and not composting her sweet potato peels. Right-wingers barraged her after her chief of staff was spotted enjoying a burger for dinner.

But what good does any of that do? As Ocasio-Cortez responded on Twitter to the New York Post, she’s “living in the world as it is.” That doesn’t mean we don’t deserve a better future—we do! But to get there, we’re going to have to focus on the fossil fuel corporations whose products are responsible for most of our global greenhouse gas emissions, and the politicians failing to shift societies away from our dependency on them.

So, then stop using their product.

Earlier this year, a young high schooler asked me what she could do to help the environment. After a second of deep thought, I told her my truth: Always be mindful of what the most-hard hit communities need. And that’s communities of color and the low-income. Then, I reminded her that saving the world can’t happen only within our homes. It’ll happen by changing what goes on within corporate board meetings, Congress, and the White House. The simple act of voting on who gets to sit in these spaces is powerful.

And you wonder why I call this whole thing a political issue, rather than a scientific one?

So I’ll keep on eating my late-night burger while striving for a better world. The two don’t have to be mutually exclusive.

Except, the hardcore Warmists tell us that eating meat is Bad. They try and get government to force people to give up meat, such as Comrade Bill De Blasio declaring schools will be meatless on Mondays. Remember the hypocrisy, though. Always remember that they want their beliefs forced on Other People. On That Guy. On Someone Else.

    For the record. Environmentalist != Warmist. You can be a fan of clean air, water and natural spaces without accepting any part of the Leftist fraud that is AGW.

  2. Bill Bear says:

    Always remember that Porter Good wants to avoid any actual discussion of climate change and an effective response to it, opting instead to hurl personal attacks against those who dare to disagree with him.

    Wondering who organized all those children’s marches and lawsuits about climate change?https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_unsure.gif

    “Newly obtained public records reveal that the recent wave of private “climate” litigation and state attorneys general (AGs) investigations was not only laid out behind closed doors seven years ago at an infamous 2012 meeting in La Jolla, California. It turns out the attendees also got very early word about the frenzied street theater of children’s marches and school kids’ strikes now filling the streets, including this week in the U.S.

    The reason? These demonstrations are a long-planned component of the climate industry’s litigation campaign, including particularly Juliana v. United States, the “Climate Kids” suit that is a radical example of the extreme climate activism flooding the courts.”

    The “Climate Kids” along with useful idiots like Occasional-Cotex, Omar the Hijab and Maxipad Waters combined with their blog trolls like Elwood and seemingly also Bill Bear are all part of the ongoing (and increasing) Cloward-Piven strategy to bring down the U.S. and ultimately Western Civilization and all financed by big money in the shadows. The current strategy is to overwhelm every facet of American culture and law with suits, stoppages, rallies and media hype to such an intense degree it would be impossible to address every one. Wait till this summer and the gay/lesbo marches start and blacks riot over “injustice” (from 150 years ago) and some nut case shoots a bunch of Mohammadans or blacks or a Planned Parenthood clinic and the Democrat-Communists in Congress call for confiscation of all firearms. Wait till Google, Facebook and Twitter deplatform every single non leftist site.

    By the time normal people will try and stop them it will be too late. Then it’s just a matter of whether or not guys like Elwood and Bill cut you a break or send you to the camps. The left has proved in the last century they have no compulsion about sending people to gulags and ovens. The Killing Fields of Cambodia are a testament to leftist determination. Just add the Cult of Climate Change with it’s “moral superiority” and they have every reason they need to execute you and your family: they’re saving the world! And they have found a perfect ally in the blood thirsty Mohammadans who never met a non Muslim they wouldn’t murder.

    Haven’t you guys noticed the complete acceleration of leftist and communist antagonisms as of late? They began to intensify under Mohammad Bin Obama and have grown faster and more intense since Crooked Hillary lost. The left is pushing for a revolution.

    Hey, Bill Ayers, I read your book!

      Commenter typed: all financed by big money in the shadows

      Do you think the financiers are liberal Jews? Can you name a couple of them?

      Commenter: “Climate Kids”… useful idiots like Occasional-Cotex, Omar the Hijab and Maxipad Waters… blog trolls like Elwood and… Bill Bear (just racist and sexist name-calling)

      Mohammad Bin Obama… Crooked Hillary (do you believe President Obama was a Muslim?)

      left …sending people to gulags and ovens (when have American liberals sent people to gulags or ovens; FDR and the Japanese internment camps?)

      blood thirsty Mohammedans (some are, most aren’t, just like Christians)

      Cult of Climate Change … to execute you and your family (as that a real fear of yours or just hyperbolic propaganda?)

      Why all the degrading name calling? Do you not feel comfortable or equipped to argue your positions?

      What is the genesis of the conspiracy theories? Fear, we surmise.

      Why would anyone take you seriously other than for your violent and incendiary rhetoric?

      You have lots of fear, anger and hate.

        Hell of a straw man you put up there. Too bad he didn’t mention Jews. A little projection of your own anti-Semitic tendencies?

        Mohammad Bin Obama… Crooked Hillary (do you believe President Obama was a Muslim?)

        Of course, “The Sweetest sound…”. And lessee, tRump, orange sh1tgibbon. Too bad you can’t stand it when somebody does it to you.

        left …sending people to gulags and ovens (when have American liberals sent people to gulags or ovens; FDR and the Japanese internment camps?)

        The internment camps were Club Med compared to what the Socialists have done. Have to do better than that.

        Cult of Climate Change … to execute you and your family (as that a real fear of yours or just hyperbolic propaganda?)

        Greenpeace ring a bell?

        Why all the degrading name calling? Do you not feel comfortable or equipped to argue your positions?

        Well, we could ask the same questions of you. And you have more than all of us put together.
