Carbon Debits and Credits for The Holidays

As you’re racing out the door this morning, dodging assorted piles of unsorted, soiled laundry, and weaving between toys scattered about the house, you can take heart in something James Thorpe once said:
"Household tasks are easier and quicker when they are done by somebody else."

Go ahead.
Improve the economy.
Hire a housekeeper today.

In the Senate, they may vote today on a global warming bill.
Ironically, Washington forecasters are predicting snow.
And it’s going to be cold outside, too.

If you’re traveling to DC today, look for a high of 37 with snow flurries and a low tonight in the mid 20’s. Average room temperature in a US Gov’t office: 78-degrees.
There’s your global warming.

I think this green movement thing is about to peg the needles on everyone's Crapometer.
A group of Israeli environmentalists is now encouraging Jews around the world to light at least one less candle this Hanukkah to help the environment.
Say, what?

A story in the Jerusalem Post says the founders of the Green Hanukkia campaign contend that every candle that burns completely produces 15 grams of carbon dioxide. If one million Israeli households light up for eight days, they said, it would do significant damage to the atmosphere.

They've been doing this for four-thousand years; glad we nipped this problem in the bud.
One-less candle is going save how much Carbon-dioxide?

Hey, isn’t that why Christians put up Christmas Trees?
Carbon credits, carbon debits…
It should all work out.
Except those carbon-dioxide exchanging trees need to be pre-wired with LED lights.

This has nothing to do with that, but bears mentioning in the same posting simply because the stupidity level is comensurate with ridiculousness previously mentioned:

Two Ohio college students are facing 20-years in prison for armed bank robbery.
Both are bright kids…to a point.
When asked why they did it, the pair told the judge they robbed banks because of the high college tuition rates.

They said they had only two choices, drop out or rob a bank.
Like I said, they’re not too bright.
There was a 3rd option:
