Parody or no, this is outrageous and needs to be stopped in its tracks.
Smoke cigars, do a partial load of laundry, drink bottled water, and feel no shame. That’s what a campaign against a carbon trading bill is urging.
The latest parody of the proliferation of “green” social-networking sites and eco-friendly events comes via “Carbon Belch Day”, a campaign from the conservative Grassfire.org alliance that encourages people to pollute as much as possible on June 12.
So far, more than 140,000 people have signed a petition against “climate alarmism,” according to Ron De Jong, spokesman for Grassfire.org. And if the effort attracts half a million people, it would lead to the release of 105 million pounds of carbon a week from this Thursday.
