Meshugganeh about global warming

Posted by Richard on December 11, 2007

It is to laugh! I almost missed this incredible story from last week:

Just when you thought that global warming lunatics couldn't descend any deeper into their morass of absurdity, they proceed to pioneer new realms of insanity.

Their latest target? Nothing less than the traditional Jewish Hanukkah menorah. We couldn't make this up.

As reported this week by the Jerusalem Post, a group of Israeli environmental extremists calling themselves the "Green Hanukkia" campaign is sanctimoniously instructing Jews across the world to light one fewer candle in their Hanukkah menorahs this year in order to slow global warming.

According to the campaign's founders, each menorah candle can produce – hold your breath – a mind-boggling 15 grams of carbon dioxide. Multiplying this amount by the estimated 44 million candles that Israeli households will light during the eight-day Hanukkah holiday, they assert that "it adds up."

If environmental extremists can descend to this degree of shameless triviality, there is no telling what harmless human tradition they will target next. For instance, will Green Hanukkia create a subsidiary organization named "Green Birthday" and seek to eliminate birthday candles?

People like these won't be happy until we're all freezing in the dark. Actually, since many of them believe the current human population is far above the "proper" level, they won't be happy until most of us are dead.

    I wonder what these folks would say about the lamp oil used by the ten virgins…that evil oil is the root of all problems.
