Environmentalists are really worried that your home's Christmas lights will ruin the planet.
They worry that both the manufacturing processes of the lights and the electricity needed to power them will generate lots of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. They worry that the lights are manufactured in China and thus the amount of CO2 emissions generated during their construction is effectively unknowable.
Christmas lights aren't the only pressing issue troubling the minds of environmentalists this holiday season. The left-leaning news website Huffington Post encouraged readers to consider the environmental impact of Christmas trees in an article this month comparing the relative "greenness" of real and artificial trees.
Environmentalists are also taking aim at the traditions of gift-wrapping and Christmas cards. A student-run newspaper for the University of Wisconsin suggested last week that gift-givers use inside-out brown grocery bags instead of traditional colorful wrapping paper for their gifts, in order to reduce waste, while a Pennsylvanian county newspaper recommended Tuesday sending out online "e-cards" instead of paper greeting cards in the mail.

See what you guys have gone and done with your Christmas lights ...
The only way to do away with Christmas lights is to remove one of the bulbs and stick you tongue in the socket.
Pass it on.
What they are really worried about is the fact that you are doing something without their permission.
We really need to look at the impact Enviro-Whackos have on the planet.
Just think how much better off the planet would be if they all killed themselves.
Christmas lights don’t emit any carbon that I’m aware of and even if they did it would be nominal
Exactly, that is what it all comes down to. People determine all the time whether they want a tree, lights, and what kind of paper. Personally, I have no Christmas lights, no tree this year, and typically I use newspaper or a Walmart sack to hold a gift. None of this for me has anything to do with environmental sensitivity. But, libs can’t let you decide, it is just not in them for people to be free.
This is just another way for the libtards to piss on the spirit of Christmas and try to get it regulated so less people will able to celebrate it.
These nature whacko leftists never give it a rest, even on Christmas. If they had their way we would all revert back to hunting and gathering. OK, maybe just gathering.
A few years ago, I wrapped everyone’s presents in empty cat litter bags that I’d saved. The reactions were pretty funny!
Skiing coke drinking polar bears are ruining the artic
I am willing to give up my lights.
If, and only if, I can shove each and every one up the HuffPo’s staff’s collective Obamaholes.
Why are electric cars good and electric lights bad?
Put em in landfills. They’re biodegradable after all. Kinda. Sorta.
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a giant nuclear furnace that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
Liberals hate it when people enjoy life.
I just watched National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation the other night. The scene when all Clark’s Christmas lights finally come on is epic.
The enviros are like his snarky neighbors.
The lying leftist have been doing the same to the 4th of July, Easter, et al.
The bottom line with this vile people? They want to destroy anything to do with our American traditions, heritage, religion, etc.
These nutjobs need to get a girlfriend or a dog or something else to worry about. Is there a factory that builds these things or are they all working for the EPA? Job security is #1.
use inside-out brown grocery bags
= = =
I have used portions of plastic grocery bags (eek evil), and now outlawed in Calif.
Does that make me Good?????
Why is it that these environmentalists are also anti-Christian? Could it be that these limp-wrists have an alternate religion that wants to make believers of the entire world?
