Love Means You Never Have to Say You're Sorry

This is one of the reasons why its always better to sit on the politically correct side of history. You never have to say you're sorry. A reporter for the Economist describes sitting in a Davos hotel so overheated the windows must be opened into the snowy landscape outside to cool it down, as world leaders discuss climate change. All around him the ironies go unobserved. One of the little noticed things about the environmental movement is how it likes to recruit the "beautiful people" as spokesmen for the Earth. Hardly ever the gritty farmer with bad teeth, calluses and pit stains under his arm. One of the prestige jobs for socialites in the Third World is getting involved with international environmentalism. I asked about about this was and received a two reply: "leisure activism".Here's a proposal. Make sure all environmental movements are headquartered in equatorial Africa and mandate see how many "spokesmen" apply.

I have long suggested that the UN should move to Khartoum, or perhaps Kinshasa.

I was in Switzerland a couple weeks ago and opening windows in the winter to cool off rooms is a common thing. I don't know if it's ironic, I found it wasteful honestly. I felt bad having to do it in my hotel room, but the duvet was much too hot.

The only logical place for the U.N. is Main Street, Uagadu, Upper Volta.

We could raze the Hilton on the Hudson and build a fine wastewater treatment plant.

The neighborhood would still smell the same, but at least something clean would be coming out of the place.

Actually, most envoronmental "movements" are young and idealistic youths showing off their youthfulness.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with desiring the preservation of the remnants of the natural environment we have left.

Why do you care that "famous" people and beautiful people walk in the front row? They do at church functions and school parades as well...

Your rhetoric is getting yawnish and predictable.

Damn those lefties! Yeah! Guns!
