If the green revolution reaches its logical conclusion, people will soon be given a choice of the ration line or the gas chamber. Humans are bad for polar bears and trees and are advised to put down their bagpipes, suck up their crappy marriage and light one less candle in the name of the collective:
The founders of the Green Hanukkia campaign found that every candle that burns completely produces 15 grams of carbon dioxide. If an estimated one million Israeli households light for eight days, they said, it would do significant damage to the atmosphere.
"The campaign calls for Jews around the world to save the last candle and save the planet, so we won't need another miracle," said Liad Ortar, the campaign's cofounder, who runs the Arkada environmental consulting firm and the Ynet Web site's environmental forum. "Global warming is a milestone in human evolution that requires us to rethink how we live our lives, and one of the main paradigms of that is religion and how it fits into the current situation."Crossposted: Dust My Broom
