We Respond & Your Comments

In June we showed that divestiture of energy stocks is merely an empty gesture . Today we speak directly to our energy obsessed “Greenies.”…

Hey, Greenies, now that you’ve convinced adults, who should know better, to divest energy stocks, how about you divest some of your stuff you wouldn’t have without demon oil? Stuff like:

  • Cars – even your puny 121 horsepower Priuses. Where do you think electricity comes from? Anyway, my model airplane has more power;
  • Air conditioning – powered by fossil fuels. When you’re broiling next August just remind yourself how righteously green you are;
  • Your precious iphones & iPods. How much oil did it take to manufacture & ship them to you? Divest them and save a polar bear.

It sure was fun lecturing other people about sacrificing for your green obsession, wasn’t it? Now go back to school. You have much to learn.
