This morning as I was preparing breakfast, I was thinking about changes that have happened because of the Chinese virus.
More and more foods are packaged in plastic and foam plastic to protect us from the virus. My bagels which I used to buy in bulk and place in a paper bag are now individually packaged in plastic bags with a twist tie. Before the virus, I put my bagels in a reusable container and recycled the paper bag. Now because the thin plastic bags used to “protect” my bagels are not recyclable, they just go into the landfill. Plastic bags are made from those “evil fossil fuels” that the Climate Nazis want to ban. What is the “carbon footprint” of using more and more non-recyclable bags?
The same problem arises at the grocery store checkout. Earlier in the pandemic it was illegal to bring in your own reusable shopping bags because of FEAR of spreading the virus. Now if you bring in your own bags no one in the store is allowed to touch them and you must bag everything on your own. I don’t mind doing that but when I have a lot of groceries it can slow the checkout down as the workers aren’t allowed by law to help. I noticed that almost no one brings their own bags into the store and more of those evil non-recyclable bags are used. Again, what is the “carbon footprint”?
At a restaurant no sit down dining is allowed, at least in this “woke” state of Kalifonia. Take out is the only way to get restaurant food. And what is that food packaged in? Styrofoam containers which are about the most environmentally unfriendly of plastics and non-recyclable plastic bags,. Styrofoam is not allowed into the recycle stream here in the most “woke” of states. At a small restaurant I patronize the owner has stacks of cases of Styrofoam containers as all of his orders are now takeout only. Once again more and more “evil fossils fuels” converted into plastics that end up in the landfill. You guessed it, what is the “carbon footprint”?
According to Crazy Uncle Joe Biden and his cohorts we’re all dead in less than 9 years because of the “EXISTENTIAL THREAT from the “carbon footprint” of the United States that is causing ALL of the global warming.
Why is it I don’t hear one peep from all the Green New Dealer Climate Nazis about the how we are accelerating the destruction of the world because of pandemic fears? Where is our savior, the learned Alexandra Occasional Cortex, in this dire time of need? Why is she not speaking out?
Or is the more important “EXISTENTIAL” problem to cause MISERY, FEAR, and PANIC in order to get President Trump out of office?
