How I Celebrated Earth Hour

Last night along with some friends I marked Earth Hour by engaging in natural activity.

We sat out in my friend's yard around a fire made from natural, renewable wood.  To get it going, we drizzled some diesel fuel made from dead dinosaurs onto paper made from dead trees.  After awhile we got the kids and roasted marshmallows made of natural sugar on natural sticks.  Once the kids were done and back inside, we sat around the fire shooting the breeze while consuming all-natural Woodford Reserve Bourbon Whiskey.  Dunno if it was made from organic corn, but even if not, the artificial fertilizers used to grow it no doubt were dinosaurs at some point.

See, ain't I politically and environmentally correct?

Remember: if the label says "organic", it means that something probably pooped on it, before it was infected with blight and harvested on a low yield boutique farm that lost more of its crops than necessary to insects and predation.

Well, OK. I exaggerate. A little.


The point, however, is that organic farming is less efficient and cannot compete unless demand is increased through the denigration of "inorganic" farming methods. but since people are so easily persuaded of the perils of alar and ddt, that's not too far a stretch.

Heh. The way I define "organic" farming is that your veggies include more poop.
