The environment destruction fun game

Fouling up the environment is a big joke these days! Look at this ad for the Hummer vehicle, the monster truck that any North American macho with due self-respect, ought to drive. The ad comments on the site ban SUV's:

Look at this attempt to ban our beloved behemoths! Don't they know we don't need to follow any laws written by girly men? Somebody needs to tell them that Hummer H8 owners follow a higher power. Apparently they don't know that the "H" in Jesus H. Christ stands for "Hummer!" Who cares if we're contributing to the destruction of the environment? Who's to say that it's wrong to put other peoples' lives in danger? What's wrong with being at greater risk of rolling our vehicles over? Jesus Hummer Christ doesn't see anything wrong with it, so why do these people?

It's the New York blogger Elisabeth who called my attention to it. Of course, you could say that environmental-destruction-capitalism-with-a-smile is better than the raw much-too-serious-capitalism-that's-only-in-it-for-the-profits-and-give-goddam-about-people, but this attitude may lead to callousness and cynicism. And if there's one thing the environment can't stand it's cynicism. Something has to be done to save the world from global warming. The ice caps on the North and South poles are melting, average water levels in the oceans are rising, polar bears drowning, and the climate is deteriorating and destroying man's natural habitat many places on the earth.

Let me tell you this story that I told on Dr. De la Vega,s blog:

A scorpion wanted to cross a river and approached a crocodile asking him for help.
The crocodile:
'Why should I do it ?
The scorpion: 'Because then you have a life long guarantee that I won't bite you in addition to the fact that it is in my interest not to bite you in order to be able to cross the river.'

The crocodile thought that this was a good deal and agreed. The scorpion marched on his back readying himself for the voyage. Then in the middle of the river, the crocodile felt a pinching pain and before fainting shouted to the scorpion: 'Idiot, why did you bite me, we are both drowning now'
The scorpion answered before drowning: 'Because I can do it'

That's good metaphor. We keep it up, just because we can do it! Never mind future generations!
