Is There A Greener Way To Celebrate Bonfire Night?
A perplexing question but don’t worry the kill joy ecotards Leo and Lucy at the Guardian have all the answers to this and many other green questions that perplex only Green ecotards.
In a section called Ask Leo And Lucy, that makes the readers letters page of TV Quick look positively high brow, “readers” email in questions that are of concern only to warming alarmists, bike riders and those morons that buy a Toyota Prius or an electric car.
Leo takes up the story:
What? Like just ignoring it, you mean? But, seriously, if you are intent on celebrating via the medium of exploding rockets and blazing piles of waste timber the failure of a Catholic plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament nearly 400 years ago, then there are some steps you can take to reduce the related negative environmental impacts.
Aardvark is tempted to ask what sort of a cunt writes shit like this and expects to be taken seriously?
The answer is one or more Guardian journalists.
Leo then extols the virtues of the organised public display and the compressed air firework, whatever that is.
As with all warming alarmists Leo had a humour bypass operation along with his free poster of Rainbow Warrior and Greenpeace eco terrorist underpants:
Similarly, there has long been talk of child labour and dangerous working conditions blighting the manufacture of fireworks in China. Does that automatically make UK-produced fireworks a more “ethical” purchase? Or, again, are there other alternatives out there? And what of the modern trend for sky lanterns at bonfire night?
Lighten up Leo the Chinese were making fireworks long before smug self appointed eco warriors were running around dishing out guilt trips on the manufacturers and consumers of fireworks, keep your guilt to yourself to Leo, leave it in the confessional along with your Catholic priest.
