In what reads like something a satirist would compose to mock the hypocritical killjoys who infect the gaping wound that is the environmental movement, the Washington Post’s Brian Palmer devotes nearly a thousand words (and who knows how much carbon-based energy exhaust) to hector Americans for celebrating a holiday that he claims is akin to a toxic waste dump.
“As you prepare to gather your family together for Thanksgiving,” WaPo lectures. “It’s worth taking a moment to consider the impact your meal will have on the Earth and the climate.”
The Post’s entire argument is based on the premise that the turkey, dressing, potatoes, and vegetables you consume, are all derived from the evils of energy consumption.
