Carbon footprint? I am so sick of hearing this phrase lately. When did this term become a part of our language? Did I miss something? By using this term, we are agreeing with the language of the liberals who want us to believe that humans have created global warming. By even asking what our carbon footprint is, we are complicit in the push by liberals to politicize free enterprise.
The American way of life is predicated on the idea that I can go and buy whatever I need whenever I need it for whatever reason, as long as I can afford it. I am not ashamed of wealth. I do not think that trying to make those of us who drive larger vehicles feel guilty about the choices we have made for safety’s sake is a productive way to go about things.
There is still a lot of debate out there as to the causes of global warming, and (gasp) there is even still debate [as to] whether or not it is even happening. So can we please, for science’s sake, stop acting as if we know the facts. Stop trying to make us all ride bicycles and be vegetarians.
