From the article Inconvenient Youths:

In households across the country, kids are going after their parents for environmental offenses, from using plastic cups to serving non-grass-fed beef at the dinner table. Many of these kids are getting more explicit messages about becoming eco-warriors at school and from popular books and movies.

This year’s global-warming documentary “Arctic Tale,” for instance, closes with a child actor telling kids, “If your mom and dad buy a hybrid car, you’ll make it easier for polar bears to get around.”

From the comments section at Hot Air:

And I’m telling my kids, “If we buy a big enough SUV, we can fit a couple polar bears inside it and make it really easy for them to get around!”

Seriously though, that article was annoying as all get-out.

I can't stop laughing at that comment from the comment section at Hot Air. I have this picture in my head of this SUV full of polar bears!

There is going to be no serious research into alternative fuels until all of the fossil fuels are gone.....so, we bought an SUV to help use it up. When I tell my, very liberal, sister and brother in law that, they go spastic. Heehee.
