Earth day is almost as stupid as global warming. I turned all my lights on and idled both my cars in my driveway just to be sure I made up for my idiot neighbors turning out lights.

lol not sure it was about saving the earth in an hour more like Remembrance Day where you pay your respects....or in this case acknowledge that we will become extinct in the way that swarms of bacteria do when they deplete there resources in a petri dish.

All Earth day was is a feel good event for tree hugging morons. They are burning candles for light. Let me think about that, burning candles. Don't forget about all the parties were they are cooking and serving treats. And they need to use their cars/trucks/vans to go to the store to get supplies. Earth Day was a crock of crap. Just like global warming. That is the biggest lie we are all being scared into believing. I do believe man will ruin the Earth, but Global warming is just a line fed to breed fear and nothing more. The climate does what it wants in cycles. They even managed to blame the snowiest winter on record on global warming. No matter what happens, they will say that is the cause. Just pure BS.

The tree hugger argument is very lame now.

The consensus among scientists is that resources are currently being depleted by humans at an unsustainable rate.

At the same time the environment is changing around us very quickly. It took millions of years of biological growth to produce the carbon that has been burned in a century.

Meanwhile species go extinct as we deplete their resources and change the environment.

As the energy exchange pumps reach new equilibriums areas will experience extremes of hot and cold before moving to positive feedback- A nightmare scenario.

Currently scientist have named the 21st century as the beginning of the anthropocene epoch. Epoch's are demarked by mass extinction....its not chumps science its reality.
