Saving the planet is, ultimately, not about continuing our present levels of consumption, only doing so using greener technology than at present. Saving the planet means using less. Period."
-- Lynette Evans, the San Francisco Chronicle's self-appointed "village scold," who's determined (I shit you not:) "to point out the road to redemption," for the SFGate
That quote is from a post called, "Why recession is good for the planet," which caught my eye because, just yesterday, an idiot told me he wanted to see $10.00 a gallon gas prices - so we'd all have to start riding bicycles! - just like him! I swear, these people are crazy. Didn't they ever see the "Smug Alert" episode of South Park (above) and notice what assholes they are - loving the smell of their own farts? They pay no mind to anything but themselves and what they "feel" is right - but can you imagine what $10.00 a gallon gas would do to the price of food for people who couldn't afford the nifty $500.00+ bicycle that environmental douchebag was riding?
In the case of Lynette Evans, she'll be happy to learn I'm already "using less":
I don't buy her shitty paper anymore.
And, I'm sure, we'll both be happy when she loses her position as "Miss Information" because of it.
