  1. It is funny, (or sad really) when I was a kid we were taught things, like turn out the lights to save energy. Put trash in garbage cans to keep the planet looking clean. Now you see kids throwing out their wraps in parks and saying, look Papa, I am saving the planet.

    Oh brother.

  2. This is a good example of why “saving the planet” is the most dangerous phrase in any language. There no evil too extreme for them to use in carrying out their Munchausen syndrome fantasy.

    Pray tell, how will she and her group handle plate tectonics? You know, they’re still moving around.

  5. Oh my, all that burning. Didn’t that put a lot a CO2 in the air? On top of her being convicted of arson, isn’t she guilty of crimes against humanity?
