    If some one as committed to climate change prevention as Al G continues to fly by plane...then why should anybody else be willing to make any meaningful sacrifice to prevent climate change?

    I don’t think there is any real appetite in world’s most developed countries for any change that hits own living standards. Plenty of appetite...of course...to tell less developed countries what to do.

    I don’t think it will work...developing countries will regard advice as selfish and hyprocritical...and continue to use fossil fuels in increasing quantities partly because of that.

    I hope I’m wrong..of course.

    Yesterday, I took a day trip to Chicago so my brother could savor in railroad photography while I... well, provided moral support, as this was sort of a compromise I made in exchange for another trip planned Saturday to go to Memphis to support our soccer club. Aside from shitty Greyhound service, which I won't get into since this is not why I'm posting, we went by the Fair Oaks Dairy Farm on I-65, which is a common tourist destination for people in Indiana and Chicagoland who want to see where milk comes from or gawk at cows, which I know sounds boring, but it does make lucrative money since there's nothing in the area besides a wind farm for miles around.

    Yesterday, this happened.

    Fair Oaks Farms under investigation for animal abuse claims

    Look; I'm familiar with the idea of removing the calves from their mothers early on in dairy farms as the dairy cows are being used to manufacture milk wholesale, and the calves are going to be raised quickly to grow more dairy cows. That said; wow! I'm a guy who gives groups like PeTA and other similar agencies grief for being full of bull and I bear no bones about that stance, but still... slamming these things around because they aren't responding the way you want them isn't how they aren't going to be feeding. The agency who did the investigation will release a full video of their findings tomorrow.

    As a result, they're going to lose a lot of tourism and many grocery stores are pulling Fairlife Dairy products, which is made by them, which certainly makes the Coca-Cola Company very unhappy.

    Does it?

    Why?

    You surely aren’t casting Al G as a hard working son of the soil being unfairly criticised by some intellectual?!!?

    How long would it take to Sail between continents? Since in your opinion he'd be a hypocrite to ride on a plane that would be flying with or without him, how many weeks of their life should anyone give up for that ideal?

    Or can you prove he owns his own jet/is the only one flying in them?

    Ships actually pollute a lot. A lot. They have horrible gas mileage and create more human waste.
    One of the big cruise lines just got fined, again, for dumping tons of trash into the ocean, again.

    Don't conservatives get tired of repeating their ridiculous talking points.

    Because Al Gore isn't saying you shouldn't fly in a plane. He's saying power plants dumping hundreds of thousands of tons of C02 into the atmosphere each day for years is changing the worlds climate.

    I said Sail instead of Cruise for that exact reason. Cruise ships for all their filth and disease still travel faster than your average sailboat.

    Y'know, considering the complaints about how wind power might cause problems for the wind itself it never seemed to have a problem with thousands of sailboats back in history.

    Cruise ships seem like a big waste of money. I get that people want to enjoy warm weather and tour exotic destinations, but the idea of hundreds of people trapped on a vessel where disease can spread easily always turns me off.

    The problem with those exotic, colorful destinations is that they tend to be filled with exotic, colorful people whom the average American tourist may not be too keen on interacting with.

    Trump Lawyer John Dowd Demanded ‘Heads Up’ On Flynn Cooperation In Disturbing Audio

    “You know we need some kind of a heads up ... just for the sake of protecting all our interests,” Dowd calmly tells Flynn’s attorney in the voicemail recording. Sounds like the sort of request a consigliere would make for his Mafia don.
