The March Of The New Luddites

Environmentalism: So global-warming alarmists now want to limit our use of toilet paper. What's next, one-room shacks with bamboo fences? Don't laugh. That's also on their list of recommendations.

Singer Sheryl Crow says she's spent most of her save-the-planet tour of campuses "trying to come up with easy ways for us all to become a part of the solution to global warming."

Eureka! She's found a really practical idea.

"I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting," Crow said.

I think the square of toilet paper should become the new symbol of Global Warming(TM) Scam.

What kind of pesky occasions would require the use of more than 1 square of toilet paper? Do we really want to know?

I would love to know how she and her celebrity friends live, the size of their houses, their power bills, etc. What a bunch of hypocrites.

Time gushed over one greenhouse gasbag from Northern California who felt so "guilty about the size of his residential carbon footprint" that he squeezed himself into a 100-square-foot hobbit hole.

My wife and I like our 2400 sq ft house just fine. And we enjoy it guilt free.

All I know is that Sheryl Crow must have smoked a whole lot of pot on that Global Warming tour across the country to come up with ideas like the TP idea...I can practically see her eating Doritos due to a severe case of the munchies while she types pot-induced ideas on her laptop.

Who's going to monitor that, Sharon?

‘”I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting,” Crow said.’

If she’s so smart, she should at least have spelled the word correctly.

"Collecting rainwater."

A lot of us here in the Midwest already do that. It's called the GREAT LAKES you moron. The rain that falls on my lawn ends up in Lake Michigan. The water I drink comes from Lake Michigan. Ergo, I drink collected rainwater. It didn't take an ecofreak bimbo to think up that system.

What is it about libs, the arrogance and condescention, they think the rest of us are too stupid to figure out what to do with rain or how to get a glass of water. And these chicks aren't exactly doing the actual work of designing sewer systems or water works or irrigation systems. They're just tossing off the "idea" of "collecting rainwater" as if that's somehow helpful to the little people. And we're supposed to bow down to them and thank them for the wonderful magnificence of their brilliance, their thinking of helping poor stupid us. What is wrong with these people? And why does the MSM give them such a platform to spew their uselessness at us?

I thought she spent most of her “save the planet” tour, getting sh*tfaced? Her tour rider is an alcoholic’s dream :/

Amen, brother. Sheryl Crow wouldn’t know what to criticize, without someone better than her creating what she was told to hate.

Big Brother. He got kicked out of the bedroom by the left and quickly moved to the bathroom.

He already checked the size of your toilet tank.

He’s going to soon be checking the type of light bulbs you have.

He may eventually check for illegal drugs in your urine and illegal transfats in your bowels.

There’s only one reason Sheryl Crow should open her mouth -
and talking ain’t it.

If you want to see the end result of this madness, check out http://www.noimpactman.com

This guy has figured out how - but he is not telling exactly how - - to do without tp completely. He composts his poop in a NYC highrise.

Best of all he makes his own bread which he claims comes from organic wheat fields within a 250 mile radius of NYC.
Odd that no one has ever seen them.
