Fuck going green when there are far more important immediate crises. Example: Conditions in third-world countries. Example: Homelessness. Example: The conditions of animals living on factory farms or in puppy mills. Global warming will have extreme effects years from now. These things are already having extreme effects right now.
Also, if you’re going to go green, if it matters that much to you, then go vegan or even vegetarian and encourage your self-proclaimed green friends to do the same. Not only will you kind of “save” some animals (I don’t like to refer to it in that manner because it’s not like Superman’s coming to the rescue…you’re just lowering the demand or maybe even just not contributing), but you’ll also “save” the environment (ditto).
Oh, but if you take my advice, don’t do it on PETA’s terms, please.
