It seemed the overreaching message of the day was do as I say not as I do. No, I am not talking about Gore’s excessive carbon neutral energy use. I am talking about, lets consume excessive amounts of energy to show the world consuming large amounts of energy is wrong.
Looking at the MSNBC website the message from corporate America is clear, Hey You, quit forcing us to destroy the earth. We had Chrysler and BP as the main sponsors of the site, does anyone smell anything funny there.
I have Universal HD, so I was able to watch throughout the day. I think my favorite part was the little clips that were shown throughout the day. My favorite was the guy whose house got flooded, polar bear man it was called.
One thing that stuck out for me the most was how 2000 it was. Who hasn’t converted to those new light bulbs yet besides Glenn Beck (they hurt his eyes, poor NeoCrybaby). Since I have more that 8 in my house now, I expect global cooling to come my way soon (not today I suspect). And that 1970’s model of recycling that is so easy a fox, or was it someone at Fox, could do it. Wake up world, putting all recyclables in one container and sorting them at the plant is the way of the future. Where besides California would you want 10 or more garbage cans lined up for recycling.
The Capital Times told us to Vote green which is a great start. It sounded like Al Gore’s 7 point plan came directly out of the Green Party platform. Nader having secret meetings with Gore, Gore pushing the Green Party platform, maybe something is in the air.
