Greenie weenies advise canceling Thanksgiving

 

Empower Wisconsin | Nov. 27,  2019

Want to save the planet? Skip Thanksgiving.

That’s the latest lunatic fringe idea from the climate change alarmist crowd.

Huffpost contributor Alexandra Emanuelli ponders: How much damage are we doing with our epic Thanksgiving meal every year?

Apparently a lot, according to Ms. Emanuelli  and “three researchers” concerning themselves with our Thanksgiving “carbon footprint.”

Traveling over the river and through the woods is the biggest carbon culprit, says the assembled climate change brain trust.  All those vehicles on the roads and the jets in the air taking Americans home to their families is stabbing Mother Earth in the back.

The Thanksgiving turkey of course is the fuse to the ticking climate change time bomb. The carbon footprint of a 16-pound turkey creates a total of 34.2 pounds of CO2, according to Paul Fishbeck, a professor in Carnegie Mellon University’s department of Social and Decision Sciences.

Beef is worse, according to the nuts.

Speaking of nuts:

“Looking for a lower carbon alternative? Go for a plant-based source,” Emanuelli asserts. Dietician Kate Geagan, author of “Go Green Get Lean,” says plant-based foods like walnuts and chestnuts have lower carbon footprints.

Leave it to the greenie weenies to trample on the biggest feast of the year. On this grateful day of binge-eating, the only damage most Americans are rightly going to be worried about is the damage that third slice of whipped cream-drizzled pumpkin pie is going to do to their waistlines.
