Stop congratulating me for not polluting: the Chris Rock perspective [video]

posted by Joshua on June 20, 2017 in Nature

People keep congratulating me when they learn it takes me six months to accumulate a load of landfill garbage. It’s still pollution. Just because people produce a lot more garbage doesn’t make mine any less so. Congratulating someone for accumulating garbage slowly is like congratulating them for kicking a puppy lightly. Kicking a puppy doesn’t[…] Keep reading →

I can’t eat all the delicious, healthy food that costs almost nothing fast enough to keep up this spring. And losing fat and gaining muscle.

Fatuous, ignorant garbage from the New York Times on polluting less

posted by Joshua on June 12, 2017 in Nature

Want to pollute less when you travel? I don’t recommend following the New York Times’s advice in Greening Your Summer Vacation, such as: the nearly 10,000-mile round trip between Newark and Honolulu could recently be offset with a $14.78 donation to a wind farm, or $17.74 to help protect a forest in Peru. That trip[…] Keep reading →
