    I thought one of the main parts of being Christian is looking after the Earth... this thread is strange. But it shows you that you know it has an affect, which is why you're doing it in spite.

    Silly silly.

    You're welcome to our bbq, xA. How does grilled mutton strike your fancy?

    Sounds cool, at least you're not doing it just to spite the Earth, even if you don't accept climate change... Looked at Beijing recently?

    I am afraid not. It's a bit far from Vegas for my old eyes to focus on.

    I celebrate it by laughing at all the original predictions from the first Earth Day in 1970:

    “It is already too late to avoid mass starvation.”
    - Denis Hayes, chief organizer for Earth Day

    “The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.” - Kenneth Watt, Ecologist


    “At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it’s only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable.” - Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

    “Air pollution…is certainly going to take hundreds of thousands of lives in the next few years alone.” - Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist

    “Scientists have solid experimental and theoretical evidence to support…the following predictions: In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution…by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half….”
    - Life Magazine, January 1970

    One more classic from our first Earth Day in 1970:

    “Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine conditions….By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.”
    - Peter Gunter, professor, North Texas State University

    Why laugh? It did. And it continues to. Well over a million deaths every year are attributed to air pollution, and that number's been steadily rising for decades. Over a million each year in China alone.

    Pollution Causes 40 Percent Of Deaths Worldwide

    Anyway...

    I don't do anything special on earth day, but I sure don't celebrate or laugh about polluting ourselves and the earth.

    Now you can tell people that you and Al Gore have something in common.

    Earth day really passes me bye,

    But boy the logic round here.

    Liberals are bad
    Liberals don't like pollution
    Pollution must be good.

    I know its tongue in cheek, but speaks of a very limited mentality.

    The fact that you think that's the reasoning here shows your limited mentality.
