QOTD: What is your favorite environmental peeve?

Littering, long showers, not recycling... What's your biggest pet peeve about the way some people (mis)treat our planet?

What I'm finding utterly fascinating about this topic is that the responders are primarily environmentalists of various 'sects' bitching with vitriol about each other's environmentalist priorities. They're as bad as fundamentalist Christians.

You're a vegan? Well, tough. Soy is bad for the environment and is killing the Amazon rainforest.

You drive a hybrid car? Screw you. Hybrid cars are powered by electricity, which is evil because it comes from power plants, which are run on coal, which is bad for the environment.

You can't win for losing.

Current Mood: amusedamused

I did see someone say "overpopulation".

Yeah. I guess that person had not heard that Europe is suffering from population decrease.



Well, fair. But irrelevant. Overpopulation isn't a local problem... it's global.

Tell me what you know about the interaction between Haiti and the US... I'd be interested to hear.

I saw one fella who at least was honest about it. "I don't give a [---] about the environment."

Heh...Yeah, my favorite ones were from the people who said, "My biggest pet peeve about the environment is people who act all morally outraged about the environment."

Nice to find a few sane people there. The funniest one to me? The person who commented, "I absolutely HATE plastic bags!"

I mean, seriously, if that's your biggest pet peeve in life, you're living pretty well.


A Couple of Pern Questions

What do you think of actress Rona Mitra as the body model for Escharrae? She recently starred in Underworld: Rise of the Lycans.

Also, where is Stealth Hold located? I want to write some Dirk and Escharrae stuff for OOTB. I'm thinking it would be best if the Hold is outside of StarRise territory, so we won't have to worry about support requirements.
