Here is the thinking of another AGW cult Nut.
Euthanize Your Old Pet
Pets have become a common feature in most homes and are an attribute of the modern, Western lifestyle. We all love our dogs and cats, but really, when you think about it, pets are a major producer of excess carbon. One of the best ways to reasonably enjoy your pet and reduce your overall Carbon Footprint is to determine in advance how long your pet should live. As a family, set a date when your pet will be euthanized. One great way to teach children the value of pet euthanasia is to turn the occasion into a family celebration. Let's say you've set March 10, five years from now, as your pet's euthanasia date. For the next five years, celebrate March 10 as your pet's special day, with a family party and perhaps a visit to your pet's future burial spot. Teach your children to think of the occasion as a birthday in reverse. A predetermined euthanasia date will encourage your family to love and care for your furry friend while it's still young and playful. What's more, pre-planing for pet termination not only works towards reducing your family's Carbon Footprint, but guarantees long term reduction in veterinary expenses.
How about Mom and Dad and Grandma and Grandpa, Soylent Green anyone?

So, less is more. On gas emissions. Size and quantity (low or none) matter. Maybe a chiwowa (SP) is a better pet than a German Shepherd per epa types. Given that our govt can regulate all/most matters environmentally, maybe our nanny state US congress will legislate one pet per household and a penalty, er tax, for dogs over a certain weight (10 pounds?) and scaled to size/weight of dog. Seeing eye dogs would be exempt.
Next. Beans. Chili with beans would be illegal to sell in stores and restaurants. And, a special tax in stores on cans of beans.

Then you have folks on welfare with 19 kids, 9 dogs and 1 cat. Now there is a carbon footprint the size of Al Gore's, all being subsidized by the Tax Payers.
Police authorities in Bowling Green, Ky., say 19 children were left inside a filthy home unsupervised for a week with no food or air-conditioning.
Deputies said the children ranged in age from 8 months to 14 years old and were taken to a nearby medical center Monday before they were released into protective custody, according to ABC News station WBKO.
On Tuesday, Jackie Farah was arrested and charged with 14 counts of criminal abuse and five counts of wanton endangerment, according to WBKO. She is being held without bail. Police are still looking for Irving “Joe” Smith, who they believe is the children’s father.
Police said nine dogs and one cat were also found in the home.

Good for them! Just b/c they don't play it (yet) doesn't invalidate that the states are still nation states, but thanks for the red herring.
As for global warming news related to automobiles, it all does relate vis-a-vis A21 and the fraud being perpetuated for transfer of wealth on the American, nay the world's population that is other than 3rd world.
You do know A21 language abolishes all private property ownership do you not? Automobiles are private property.
And I and everyone else notice that you have not responded to where in Article I Section 8 of the constitution it mentions anything about environmental regulation.
As far as bogie men got a little visual for everyone:
Just sayin' ...

Texans' threats to leave the US reminds me of a friend who was asked what part of Mexico he was from. He said the occupied part. (He was a native San Antonian).
You know no one owns anything anyway right? Just try taking it with you. Not to mention you don't own stuff, it owns you. I'm not lying in bed losing sleep over A21 or ET from Area 51 using my minivan when I need it to get to the store.

Ah, you're waxing philosophical on us...great!
Any other platitudes you wanna share?!?
Sleep well. It's always the vigilant few that protect the majority.
Both you and your San Antonio friend should watch the movie End of the Road...

Lost track of him after he moved back to TX from ID.
Platitudes? I like "Everything you think you know is wrong". You can look it up.
Just learned a new word you'll enjoy - "globaloney".
In more topical stuff, "One could argue that Honda's reputation is largely based on the various clean air and fuel economy technologies it has promoted over the years. From CVCC to HF to VTEC, NGV to IMA to FCEV, Honda can usually be found tinkering away at or near the top of the mpg charts.
Accordingly, the new 2013 Honda Fit EV looks mighty impressive in terms of EV efficiency."
Going to be hard to find one to lease though.
2013 Honda Fit EV First Drive (Inside Line)
(IMDB shows 11 "End of the Road" movies btw).

Never had a philosophy class, but skepticism falls under the definition and it is fun poking the shades of gray out there. The billboard guy should find a job in product testing.
