The lunacy of the left

There no longer is an England

There no longer is an England

Al Dente sent this along and I had to check that the dateline wasn’t April 1st, but it’s not. British Lord suggests people curtail eating beans to slow global warming and the “Climate Change Minister agrees.

Concerns have previously been raised about the effect of methane emissions from cows on global warming. But in the House of Lords today a Labour peer raised questions about the impact of human diet on emmisions. Viscount Simon, 73, a Labour peer who has been a member of the House of Lords for more than 20 years, voiced his fears about the ‘smelly emissions’. Lord Simon said: ‘In a programme some months ago on the BBC it was stated that this country has the largest production of baked beans and the largest consumption of baked beans in the world.’

He asked (Climate Change minister) Lady Verma: ‘Could you say whether this affects the calculation of global warming by the Government as a result of the smelly emission resulting therefrom?’ Lady Verma described his question as ‘so different’ but she appeared to suggest that people should think twice about over-indulging in baked beans or any food which causes flatulence. She added: ‘You do actually raise a very important point, which is we do need to moderate our behaviour.’

    Didn’t we go through this already with farting cattle?
    Good lord.

    More evidence that most are completely unable to manage ‘perspective’ and scale.

  3. Does this mean the Brits have long ceased to be “limeys” but rather have been “beaners” all along?

    Here’s a boondoggle they can fund: A study to determine which is a bigger risk to the climate, human or bovine flatulence? Me thinks cow farts a much bigger pollutant.

    Absent the native English coming to their senses very quickly indeed to give UKIP a clear and overwhelming mandate at the polls, the U.K. is lost forever to the pompous likes of Gordo Brown and David Cameron. It’s really very sad to watch Brittania slip below the waves.

  6. Chris Matthews and Debbie Wasserman-Shultz should be arrested for criminal flatulence………

    I have the perfect solution for the libs and climate change wackos, put a cork in it!

  8. FAIR WARNING: I feel a rant flung on me:

    Based entirely upon multiple established precedent, the hysterical environmentally unconscious libtard crew must always, always have a manufactured crisis of the moment. Some designer doomsday scenario wherein they all run in circles and hyperventilate over the newest critical mass issue supported by all manner of contrived and manipulated “science”

    This pattern clearly demonstrates that when a crisis has worn out, it’s customarily retread and trotted out again under a new name (most recently: Global warming retread into “Climate Change”)

    Cases in point: once there was hysteria over nuclear power incinerating the earth-led by Hanoi Jane and ilk; then there was over population fears and the earth would be filled beyond capacity with teeming swarms of humans reproducing at random, like every 5 minutes or so, Hollyweird jumped on board to reinforce the crisis with movies like No Blade of Grass, Soylent Green, and The Omega Man. In the midst of this the pollution crisis was spawned. Impassioned cries of the water supply being polluted to cess pool quality the world over, the sun being blotted out by a pollution-blackened sky in 1984 the “war on women, the war on blacks, gays, name your victim here and on and on. Women and minorities are as always the victims of the most brutal impacts resulting from any given crisis.

    The sky is forever falling for these people. So now, having run the gamut of the crisis supply file, yet again, we arrive at human and animal produced methane threatening to blot out the sun, and suffocate all life on earth in one great gaseous cloud.
    They’ll never cease this nonsense of their’s. Never. The longer this crap continues, the crazier they’ll get.

    These are the people who rabidly advocate absurdities like recycling used bathroom tissue, for God’s sake. Used toilet paper. Just who’s going to be the first to show us how that’s done? Then there’s Bimbo Streisand telling us that we should hang clothes on an outside line to dry and stop using a dryer. Just how many of her clothes do you think will ever see an open air line drying? Who will be the first to carbon fast by giving up their Lear? Why do none of these practice as they preach?

    My father used to say Let ’em all freeze to death in the dark. No earth-killing nuclear power,no electricity generated by burning coal, you get the idea.
    The only hope we have is that sooner or later this whole mother earth band of idiots will begin to die off or they’ll petrify in place whimpering and hugging their inner child, clutching their organic, vegetarian granola bars. whilst swearing off beans and awaiting the next episode of the environmentalists’ wet dream, Life After People. so the earth can heal because after all, the earth is a garden and humanity the infesting pest.

    Ok, rant over.

  9. Please, someone riddle me this: generating evil electricity is bad for the environment, right?

    That being asked, why then, advocate electric cars? They must be charged by electricity, correct?
    How then, is it so environmentally “friendly” to drive an electric car that can only run by constant recharging with environmentally not friendly electricity?

    Anyone?

      Please stop insisting on logic from the left. It only pisses them off more than they already are.

      • An excellent point. i think 3/4 of the problem is due to the fact that the left loonies are not held to the fire of logic. But this implies that known, quantified fact would be used, which, negates the whole process, anyway. It was a good thought while it lasted, though.

        I am forced to cut this short due to the arrival of my dinner guests and cocktails must be seen to…….cheers!

        better to be pissed off than pissed upon.

    I mourn for future generations of young Brits who will not be able to hear grandpa say, “Pull my finger.”
