One More on the Environmental


So, my friend nicely told me the other day that the emission results of my penguin-hating consumption habits were ruining the world, and that I should give my money away. So, naturally offended, I thought that over. Let's say I give 50% of my income away. And we all willingly redistribute our funds so that no one's rich and no one has need. Will total consumption change? I will just be consuming less, and other people will be consuming more. I don't see how that solves his environmental concerns. Isn't he really looking for a production decrease? Or a population control mandate?

Seems like different problems to me. First of all you hate earth. Secondly, you hate poor people. In conclusion...You suck!!!

ok, so it's not necessarily the consumption? It's the byproducts of the consumption. So, if I consume reproducable things while using energy efficient resources and non-hazardous emissions, thing it's ok?

and by the way, i don't hate poor people, i just go by the facts. If you give a dollar to a homeless person, there is a 97% chance that he will use that money to buy a gun and kill a rich person. Fact: more people will use cocaine this year than will read a book to their child.
