June 12 Carbon Belch Day
June 12 is Carbon Belch Day and Grassfire wants you to expel as much carbon as you can. The reason?
to combat climate alarmist propaganda and to take a stand against a "$1.2 trillion carbon tax."
According to an article on World Net Daily, Grassfire president Steve Elliott said:
"We wanted to point out the absurdity of the climate alarmism of Al Gore and others who want to make us feel bad for just about everything we do and rally people for the battle over the carbon tax which is now underway in the Senate."
"We really plan to engage lots of citizens who have been under carbon-footprint guilt for far too long and give citizens an opportunity to make a statement that we reject climate alarmism. We're not going to stand for this carbon tax."
The bill (Lieberman-Warner) calls for imposed limits on US greenhouse-gas emissions starting in 2012. President Bush is opposed to the bill and the potential $6 trillion in additional costs it would add to the US economy.
Grassfire's web site provides a Carbon Belch Calculator for users to see what activities they can do to increase their carbon belch.
