"'This provides an extraordinary symbol and an indication that we can be part of the solution'" to , Australian Environment Minister Peter Garrett told 'We're not only talking the talk, we're walking the walk,' he said as the hour ended. 'Whatever your view is about the magnitude of the problem ... we can save money by using energy wisely and efficiently, and that gives us the added bonus of reduced .'"
What a sad state when turning off the fucking lights in yr house for an hour is really taking a stand. Jesus christ. Talk about pissing in the ocean.
And let me tell you, I am virtually certain that Garrett does not know my view of the "magnitude of the problem"

as far as vegans reviling this place, it's not like it really has much reflection on veganism. really, is anyone gonna say "oh well vegans are sexist, i'm not gonna be vegan"? no. that will not happen. homeboy is an idiot and an abject failure. this will sink into obscurity, occasionally to be remembered only in passing anecdotes. just another strip club looking for its niche.
it was there for maybe fifteen hundred years. lol @ permanence! didn't take us very long to dislodge that ice. it was just sitting there anyway! what was it doing? frozen water is boring!!
"While icebergs naturally break away from the mainland, collapses like this are unusual but are happening more frequently in recent decades, Vaughan said. The collapse is similar to what happens to hardened glass when it is smashed with a hammer, he said.
The rest of the Wilkins ice shelf, which is about the size of Connecticut, is holding on by a narrow beam of thin ice. Scientists worry that it too may collapse. Larger, more dramatic ice collapses occurred in 2002 and 1995."
just more evidence that literally no part of the world is safe from our selfish ravaging. this, like every indication that we have constructed a global catastrophe and are accelerating it daily, will fall into the canyon of apathetic bliss while we waste time talking about hybrid cars, "green" business practices and solar-powered factories. an unimaginably powerful hurricane swirls around us, intensifying ceaselessly, and we say "my, it is a bit windy today." sustainable industry - yeah, right.
what the fuck? comedy that constantly harps on racial stereotypes is "clean?" what a stupid bunch of christians. as long as they don't talk about sex or speak with profanity, it's fine, huh? watching people degrade themselves and their ancestry is sad. watching them get the crowd going by repeating "funny" versions of classic racist tropes, i feel like they are doing more damage than they would be were they making lascivious jokes - especially when it's been given the christian seal of moral approval.
