"Global Warming tells us we have a long way to go."
Please, global warming is so 20th century. We know it is a hoax and is only kept alive by Al Gore who makes quite a tidy living off this sham.
When Al Gore agrees to debate Bjorn Lomborg I'll perhaps listen again, until then my goal in life is to increase my carbon footprint until it is 1/100th of Gore's. That will mean I'm living large indeed.
obama keeps the thermostat in the white house cranked, even he doesn't really believe this global warming nonsense anymore.

green lawn mowing = sheep

Rush Limbaugh makes quite a tidy living off turning Americans against one another. So to each his own as far as making a living I guess.

Think about it. Most people burn less than 5 gallons of gas per year mowing their lawn. 5 gallons of gas weighs 40 pounds, so its unlikely that the average mower puts out anywhere near 87 pounds of green house gases.
The US emmitted around 1.7 billion tons of CO2 from fossile fuels in 2005. The impact of someone mowing their lawn relative to this amount is trivial. Incidentally, it would take 39 billion lawn mowers emitting 87 pounds to equal 1.7 billion tons.
Mindlessly quoting bogus statistics doesn't further any cause.

I totally agree. PBS does that same thing - ratchets up the stats until they're completely
silly, yet few people actually challenge them. Thanks.
