Going green, or just being an idiot?

From UNHAPPY HIPSTERS:

After months of parking on the street, he finally agreed that designing the driveway around the stump was green living gone too far.

Me, I’m pretty sure that’s photoshopped. But pretty danged funny.

CIA apparently unconcerned with security

Instead, they are worrying about global warming:

The nation’s top scientists and spies are collaborating on an effort to use the federal government’s intelligence assets — including spy satellites and other classified sensors — to assess the hidden complexities of environmental change. They seek insights from natural phenomena like clouds and glaciers, deserts and tropical forests.

Re-tasking the satellites away from watching Russia, North Korea, and Iran, not to mention looking for Waldo-bin-Laden? Sounds like a plan to me.

Idiot Greens Strike Again

The Earthpolice have once again created crime where there was once only normal life:

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — The quest for squeaky-clean dishes has turned some law-abiding people in Spokane into dishwater-detergent smugglers. They are bringing Cascade or Electrasol in from out of state because the eco-friendly varieties required under Washington state law don’t work as well. Spokane County became the launch pad last July for the nation’s strictest ban on dishwasher detergent made with phosphates, a measure aimed at reducing water pollution. The ban will be expanded statewide in July 2010, the same time similar laws take effect in several other states.

But it’s not easy to get sparkling dishes when you go green.

Many people were shocked to find that products like Seventh Generation, Ecover and Trader Joe’s left their dishes encrusted with food, smeared with grease and too gross to use without rewashing them by hand. The culprit was hard water, which is mineral-rich and resistant to soap.

As a result, there has been a quiet rush of Spokane-area shoppers heading east on Interstate 90 into Idaho in search of old-school suds.

‘There’s no reason only poor people should get malaria’

Brilliant.

‘There’s no reason only poor people should get malaria’: The moment Bill Gates released jar of mosquitoes at packed conference | Mail Online.

Awesome thinking, Bill.

‘Malaria is spread by mosquitoes,’ the Microsoft founder yelled at a well-heeled crowd at a technology conference in California.

’I brought some,’ he added. ‘Here, I’ll let them roam around – there is no reason only poor people should be infected.’

So let me get this straight — malaria is spread by mosquitoes, and now one of the richest men in the world is putting himself in charge of spreading the mosquitoes?

Nicely thought out.

Inaugural Armageddon

Thanks, Obama. Your coronation is going to destroy the planet.

According to the Institute for Liberty,

It would take the average US household 57,598 years to produce a carbon footprint equal to that of the new president’s housewarming party.

So, the incoming greenies have no problem with shamelessly contributing to the destruction of life on earth in the pursuit of celebrating the ascension of The One.

Nice.
