BOYCOTT ELECTRICITY!!!!!
    #1559756 - 05/19/03 12:38 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)


did you know that we get a majority of our electricity from burning fossil fuels like coal and oil? every time you flip on the light, you are slowly killing the earth. so if you are so upset at the dirty oil companies, why not go all the way and boycott electricity? I mean, people had to die to provide you with that light, with that cold beer, and your air conditioning. I know you do your part to rail against those monster SUVs and blood for oil and all that but would you really change your lifestyle to stand up for what you believe in?

I hear you bro...

I think its cool how the electricity companies (at least here in CA) are making all sorts of commercials JUST for conservation. Saying that you will get reward money if you cut your electricity usage by 20% and all.

Its something everyone should be aware of. Its sad to go to people's houses who have no idea whats going on and have thier TV, computer on 24/7, and all sorts of lights on that dont need to be on. Standby mode for electrical appliances STILL uses electricity as well.

I wish people were not so ignorant to the fact that saving electricity is something that everyone can do to help the environment!! This summer, set your air conditioner to a higher temperature (If you really need to use one!!), save MONEY, and help save the environment..

BOYCOTT ELECTRICITY
And how would we keep our shrooms warm??
Nah just kidding here in AUS we get a discount for solar hot water systems and stuff but its not much compared to the initial investment its not something every one could afford. You would eventually save coin if you could afford this type of stuff.
And feel alot better about youreself .

Yeah. The amount of electricity used by the country boggles me. I mean, up here in Wisconsin, we have like...ALL fossil fuels, with a few nuke plants thrown in. We have THOUSANDS of miles of space they could fill with Solar things...At least, I think they could. I dont really claim to know. But yes! Pollution SUCKS.

I'll use my share (and as much of yours as possible) of gas and electricity until the day I die.

Three trucks, none which get more than 14 mpg, 2 refrigerators, stereo, computer, lights, and AC which is ALWAYS on in the summer months.

Ever see an electric meter doing 10,000 rpm's?

Screw conservation.... I like my toys.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

that's horrible, imagine how many people had to die to support your decadent lifestyle...
but at least you're consistent.

not like some of these these rich environmentalists who drive their $30,000 government subsidized electric cars home to their air-conditioned mansions, all the while decrying those horrible "gas guzzlers" and protesting off shore drilling. it's hypocrisy. that was the point of this thread, I wasn't actually suggesting anyone stop using electricity.
I fight hypocrisy wherever I find it...
which is why my work is never done...
