Earth Day 2012 - Mobilize the Earth (make your pledge)
earthday.org ^ | 4-21-12

Posted on 04/21/2012 10:42:30 AM PDT by doug from upland

A Billion Acts of Green is already the world's largest environmental service campaign. With over 800 million environmental actions registered on the Earth Day Network website the global support behind the movement has been tremendous. But the work is not finished yet.


TOPICS: Culture/Society; News/Current Events; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: earthday; green; noenergyforyou
I pledge to use about 2% of the amount of energy consumed by Barbra Streisand. I pledge to not use gas guzzling limos for award ceremonies. I pledge to never have a butt as big as Michelle Obama, which would cause me to use more of the Earth's oxygen. I pledge to never tear down virgin forest on a mountain (such as Aspen), create ski lifts that use tremendous energy, pave over the mountain for automobiles that bring pollution, and create a place where the wealthy hypocrites fly in on private jets and tell us how to live our lives.

NOTE: my kids are grown. It would be a good idea for about 20 million Americans to pledge to homeschool their children, thus saving an enormous amount of energy -- no schools to heat or cool, no drives to and from school to pick up the kids.

I pledge to try and rememeber to turn off the lights when I leave a room. That’s about as far as I’m willing to go for this BS

Well, since Erfday is on Sunday I pledge to make a pizza and watch Stargate re-runs.

Just like every other Sunday.

I will try to get Al and Tipper back together so they only waste energy in one household.

I pledge to shred and re-use as hamster bedding every piece of RNC mail I receive this campaign season.

I pledge to use only 3% of Al Gore's energy footprint.

I pledge to keep the skies clear by not letting any TSA goon conduct an illegal search or use methods that wouldn't be permitted in a prison.

I pledge to save the environment by not buying a car filled with toxic batteries, and instead recycle a car that gets better gas mileage than the same hybrid car that's coming off the assembly line.

I've been spending my day with a chainsaw, cutting down trees, chopping them up and burning them.

No joke.

I took my 1969 catalytic converter-free Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce for a top-down 50-mile Italian Tune Up on the parkway, and made sure to floor the accelerator whenever possible.

And,to make it even better, my ride had no destination and no purpose (other than to burn fossil fuel and increase greenhouse gases).

I’m not impressed. A “billion” is nothing. This is the Error of Obama. If you’re not talking TRILLIONS, you ain’t talking.

I pledge never to forget that we are supposed to worship the Creator, NOT the creation, and that He deeded this planet to us for our good stewardship and USE.

I also pledge not to purchase any item which has a label that screams “Green”. And I pledge to chew out any salesperson who tries to interest me in such a product, and berate them for being a dupe who believes in the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on mankind.

A slimeball attorney used his pull to get Einhorn’s bail reduced, enabling him to flee the country. The attorney’s name was Arlen Specter.

You are absolutely right...

"Wherefore G-d also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of G-d into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen." Romans 1: 24-25.

'Earth day' is a foul pagan observance from the bowels of hell. I have nothing to do with it...

I plan on reminding everyone that Earth Day is also N. Lenin’s birthday and that it’s not a coincidence.

I use Earth Day as the time to clean out my garage and dump old paint, thinners, solvents, and other toxic chemicals into the swamp ... er, I mean wetland ... behind my house.

I plan to drive a Chevy Volt past a pile of used tires. When the car goes up in flames, the tires will too. It’s a twofer.

Gotta remember to turn on all the lights, the AC, as many computers as I can and the TV/DVR.

Or just take a nap. :)
