Earth Day Heroes: Top 10 Countries With The Lowest Carbon Emissions [SLIDESHOW] ^ | 4/21/2015 | PG Veer

Posted on 04/22/2015 9:02:32 AM PDT by rktman

Wednesday is Earth Day. Like Earth Hour in March, this celebration will be yet another complaint-fest about how our modern lifestyles, especially our CO2 emissions, are destroying the planet.

Why not be positive, for once? Instead of blaming carbon “criminals,” maybe Earth Day should celebrate carbon heroes.

Here are the 10 countries with the lowest CO2 emissions per capita, according to the World Bank.

Yup. The slide show pretty much shows how the gorons/warmunists would like us to live. Nothing like roasting some weiners over an elephant dung fire.

Stop calling it Earth Day. It’s Vladimir Lenin’s Birthday.
The PC police renamed it years ago, because nobody would celebrate the birthday of Communism’s Favorite Son, but they would celebrate Earth Day.

I have to wonder if they credit countries for forestation and other CO2 reducing factors. It is not that the CO2 matters for temperature and climate, but they should at least get something right.

Ha! Those smiling people would give anything for hot water, electric lights, proper flushing toilets or regular mail delivery, etc.

They’re smiling but they ain’t happy. YOU try living without even ONE of those basic necessities!

***Earth Day***

The brain child of Ira Einhorn who murdered his girlfriend and fled to Europe. No wonder the other so-called founders of “earth day” distance themselves from him!

Can’t be roasting wieners because they come from chickens and pigs and cows which contribute to globull warming. No, sir. Tofu burgers for you.

8. Nepal
9. Burkina Faso
10. Trashcanistan

Yes, Americans, these are the national models to which the hugely successful United States can aspire. Let's go back to crapping in outhouses, lighting our homes with pitch torches, and cooking our food over dried cow patties.

Einhorn was an active participant at the first Earth Day event in Philadelphia in 1970.[4] He later claimed to have been instrumental in the creation of Earth Day and launching the event,[4] but other event organizers dispute his account.[6]

Murder of Holly Maddux

Einhorn had a five-year relationship with Holly Maddux, a graduate of Bryn Mawr College who was originally from Tyler, Texas. In 1977, Maddux broke up with Einhorn. She went to New York City and became involved with Saul Lapidus. On Sept. 9, 1977, Maddux returned to the apartment that she and Einhorn had shared to collect her things, and was never seen again. Several weeks later, Philadelphia police questioned Einhorn about her disappearance. He claimed that she had gone out to the neighborhood co-op to buy some tofu and sprouts and never returned. Eventually, Einhorn's neighbors began complaining about a foul smell coming from his apartment, which in turn aroused the suspicion of authorities. Eighteen months later on March 28, 1979, Maddux's decomposing corpse was found by police in a trunk stored in a closet in Einhorn's apartment. After finding Maddux the police reportedly said to Einhorn, "It looks like we found Holly," to which Einhorn reportedly replied, "You found what you found." Einhorn's bail was reduced to $40,000 at the request of his attorney Arlen Specter; Einhorn was released from custody in advance of his trial by paying 10% of the bond's value, or $4,000. This amount was paid by Barbara Bronfman, a Montreal socialite, and one of many people Einhorn had convinced to support him financially. In 1981, just days before his murder trial was to begin, Einhorn skipped bail, and fled to Europe. He traveled in Europe for the next 17 years, and married a Swedish woman named Annika Flodin. Back in Pennsylvania, as Einhorn had already been arraigned, the state convicted him in absentia in 1993 for Maddux's murder. Einhorn was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

The percentage of CO2 in the atmosphere is 0.04%. If that percentage gets below 0.02% plants start dying off and when plants die off guess who goes next? WE do! So you would have to ask yourself: What is a greater danger - Thinking that a 0.04 percentage, which you can call “zero point zero” is too high or too low? If we could raise that percentage rises to 0.05% which would be absolutely impossible for humans to do being that 5,000 quadrillion metric tons of atmosphere might as well be infinity when it comes to man, what is the worst that will happen? The temperature may rise 1 degree if that. Does anyone believe for one second that the polar ice caps will start melting because the mean temperature is now -61 instead of -60? When did the melting point of ice suddenly become -61 F? Does anyone believe for one second all the wildlife in North America or anywhere else will all die off because the temperate reaches 70 instead of 69? All the wildlife out there that can withstand the most ridiculous temperature changes, from reptiles in the desert living in 120 degree heat to deer, wolves, rabbits that can withstand a winter of subzero weather. But one freakin’ degree change is going to kill them all. This is the biggest freakin’ scam in modern history, it is so ludicrous the only thing more ludicrous is why there is even an argument about it.

That's not the list posted at the slide show. It's actually much worse.

1.) Burundi
2.) Chad
3.) Democratic Republic of Congo
4.) Lesotho
5.) Mali
6.) Burkina Faso
7.) Central African Republic
8.) Eritrea
9.) Ethiopia
10.) Guinea

Keep in mind, that when people like Al Gore promote buying carbon credits, these are the countries we need to buy them from. In short, the whole global warming scam is nothing more than a massive transfer of wealth from rich countries to poor ones.

You can roast a stick. Over a SMALL fire.

Might be too many particulates being released.

Maybe you should just wave your stick around until its done enough to gnaw on....
