Mommies - You Gotta Read This!
If you have a babe in diapers, you gotta read this story. I have to wonder what else will be blamed on climate change. I didn't find this on my own, it comes compliments of this blogger. Read her blog for an interesting take on this story.
Which brings me to another pet peeve and that is, celebrities who are on this climate change bandwagon yet continue to live lifestyles that are in direct conflict. Here is a bit of what I read in a newspaper earlier this week, and with which I totally concur;
Let'em live like common people...accept that as a multi-millionaire who has profited enormously from our consumer-driven culture I have become a poster boy/girl for excessive and conspicuous consumption, and that I am therefore disproportionately responsible for man-made global warming.
So here's what they should promise to do; sell all their cars and own just one small hybrid without air conditioning, take public transit whenever possible, sell all their mansions and have just one house of 2000 square feet or less for their personal use, never fly again for pleasure anywhere in the world (sell private jet) and if flying is absolutely necessary for work then fly on a regular commercial aircraft or take the train or bus. And my biggie, stop flying half way around the world just to go on shopping expeditions, buying unnecessary possessions that require the burning of fossil fuels to create and transport said goods. I guess that means eating and drinking locally produced food and water and alcohol (forget the champagne).
Think they can walk the talk? I somehow doubt it...I can't see Al Gore or David Suzuki on the local bus somehow!
