Good News: Roses Are Contributing To Climate Apocalypse

Well, this is a new one. Hadn’t seen the climate cult trot this one out before, and just in time for (surprise) Valentine’s Day. It is funny that this is on Al Jazeera, a “news” o

Roses are red and contributing to climate change, florists warn

It is the classic romantic combination: Valentine’s Day and a bouquet of red roses. But some Parisian florists are trying to wean customers off the flowers because of their ecological cost.

Most roses sold in France in the run-up to Valentine’s Day, a peak sales period for the global flower industry, have to be imported by air freight from countries such as Kenya, resulting in carbon emissions that contribute to climate change.

Florists worried about the environmental damage from this trade say there are viable alternatives that can be grown locally and are trying to encourage their customers to try them.

But these ecologically-minded florists face an uphill struggle because the tradition of gifting red roses on Valentine’s Day, which is celebrated on February 14, is so ingrained in many cultures.

Hortense Harang, founder of an online flower shop called “Fleurs d’Ici” — French for “Flowers from here” — has been spearheading the campaign to wean people off roses.

Here’s an idea: these florists can stop selling them. Of course, then the customers will simply go to other florists. Further, a lot of the flowers florists sell come from far away, so, really, they should just close shop. Just to be on the safe side. But, hey, we have a holiday coming up so the climate cultists have to climavirtue signal.

    How do you know when your doing things right?

    The Lincoln Project. Now shut down. Now under FBI investigation. Filled with child molesters.

    Its founders represent a who’s who of prominent Republican strategists on cable television, including Schmidt and Reed Galen, both former advisers to John McCain; conservative attorney George Conway; former New Hampshire GOP chair Jennifer Horn; Florida-based veteran political ad maker Rick Wilson; and Weaver, who has long advised former Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

    THESE are PROMINIENT REPUBLICANS? Yeah you dumbshits now understand why Trump was so popular among the little man who hated THESE PROMINENT REPUBLICANS.

    John McCain….bashed by Trump. Gotta pay him back. John Kasich the infamous worthless Never Trumper who was bashed by Trump in the primary and was literally the last man standing with zero chance to win but who wanted payback.

    NOW you understand GOP why Trump was so important to the people. For once in our lives we felt like there was someone who was actually doing what he said and was willing to fight for the little guy.

    Hell even the Democrats hated NAFTA. Trump rewrote it to help America. Now Joe Biden is taking us back to pre-NAFTA days because he is bought and paid for by CORPORATIONS and BILLIONAIRES.

    Must be sad to be the Elwood’s of the world who hates Corps but now has to defend them because his party is now in bed with BIG BUSINESS, while mom and pop and the unions are starving to death a seeing their jobs once again headed overseas.
