I am sick of green

post #1 of 130
Thread Starter 
everywhere I go - "green" this and "green" that. stop global warming, blah blah blah.

except that rising global temperatures are caused by increased solar activity, not increase carbon dioxide emissions. furthermore, humankind's contribution to the earth's carbon dioxide emissions is minimal.

now don't get me wrong - if the product is more efficient and has some sort of cost benefit, then great. but "green" for the sake of being green...is just trendy.

I completely agree!

Same goes for eating organic. Don't get me started on that one....my sister is over the top obsessed with only eating organic. She acts like she'll die if she's fed something that isn't.

^you realize that given the inflated cost of the prius compared to similar non-hybrid cars in the same class, you will need to drive it for at least 8 years to even come close to breaking even in terms of $$ spent on gas, right. and that the emissions from a prius are the same as from a non-hybrid vehicle. essentially you have done nothing to help the environment, but you did likely overpay for a trendy compact car. just sayin'...

Go green and buy some marijuana
Save money on gas by walking
Recycle things that can be recycled efficiently.


IMO "Going green" is really a way to say "Don't waste and misuse shit" which I don't see anything wrong with.

Lots of people put hard work and effort into 'trying' to make the world a healthier place to live. Look at china for example, not being able to do a proper fireworks display because the smog in the sky is so thick that you wouldn't be able to film it and have it look proper.

As for the whole solar activity thing, in Toronto you can see a thick yellow film rite above the horizon, and on days when its HOT AS FUCK you can see more of it and in some places its brown. Green is trendy, and its a good cause. Support the people who work for the organizations just as you would want to be supported if you were doing something noble. I haven't noticed random products displaying 'green' or whatever but if you're a hard core green person then eat that shit rite up. If your not hard core green, then ignore it and continue to by the non green products and thinking that it has no special meaning. I thought this was about weed at first.

you dont have to be a genius to realize all that shit going into the air has to be bad. but i agree that "green" is almost as annoying as "going red" is going to be when 20 years down the line we start to get worried that the earth is cooling again.

I agree the trendiness is stupid and annoying but I think it is a just cause.

Thank you.

I've never heard of that... do you have sources? (Not trying to be rude, just curious)

you forgot about the batteries that create more emissions from their production than they save in the vehicle

Thank you.
the cause would be just if most of the things people are doing were actually beneficial to the environment. 99.9% of the "green" bs everyone is obsessed with as an exercise in futility.

^word

Blame companies that just cash in on this green trend by fooling people that don't know any better into thinking they are helping the environment/ozone/global warming/renewable resources/etc.

Since it sells so well they just throw a fucking "green" stamp on it and people go nuts and BUY BUY BUY.

God forbid people actually research things they could do to actually help.

I only buy organic foods and if it's not made using windmill energy I don't eat it.
post #22 of 130
^^How much do you actually have to choose from?

I was not aware that there are tractors that have giant windmills attached to them. Then you still have to truck it as well.

I blame the celebs that preach about all the harm we do to the environment but take their private jets everywhere.
post #24 of 130
It could be worse, you could live in the UK. In some places you get fined for putting the wrong things in your recycle bin

Or own companies that you can buy carbon credits from.
