I Got Yer Live Earth Right Here

While Gorezilla was jetting about telling us to use less fuel and our own Governor Corzine was signing and touting some legislation to ruin our economy

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Reuters) – New Jersey became on Friday the first U.S. state to mandate sharp greenhouse gas reductions by 2050 to help fight climate change.
The law, signed by Gov. Jon Corzine, a Democrat, makes New Jersey the latest state to bypass the Bush administration by setting mandatory regulations to fight emissions of gases that scientists link to global warming.
“We want to send a message to Washington. Wake up, get with the program and start doing something about greenhouse gases,” Corzine told reporters at Giants Stadium on the eve of former Vice President Al Gore’s international Live Earth concerts.
The Global Warming Response Act mandates cuts of greenhouse gas emissions throughout New Jersey’s economy by about 16 percent by 2020 and 80 percent by 2050 in the country’s most densely populated state.

(hopefully Gov. Speedracer will realize that if he drives 55 instead of 90 he might cut down on emissions)
Yes, while all these bloviating gas bags were doing all types of emitting in the name of conserving I was grilling, charring as much flesh as I could

That’s 7 pounds of spare ribs, some filet mignon, 2 buffalo steaks, some grilled corn on the cob and twice-baked potatoes, because you’ve got to love anything that makes you use the oven twice.
Oh, and of course it was all washed down with wine from Australia to maximize the carbon footprint.
Hear Gaia scream.

    Oh,I wondered what it was that woke me up. Stupid Gaia. Shut-up already.

    Excellent work, Herr Bingley.
    “We want to send a message to Washington. Wake up, get with the program and start doing something about greenhouse gases,”
    In other words, “please Washington! Tell us what to do! We are worthless without your brilliant leadership! Without you we are too stupid to live!”

    Fuck Gaia, how about hearing me scream, “why am I not there to partake?!” 😉

  6. (Oh, for God’s sake, Bingley! All that manly, delicious work and you can’t cup your cob with your bare hands…?)

    Hey, watch it! I’m sure he can “cup his cob with his bare hands”. I suspect that’s the only social life he had in high school.

    Looks great, Mr. Bingley. I also fired up the grill yesterday. I only did steaks and corn though, so Gaia just whimpered.

    Hah! I moved furniture over the weekend and rented a truck for the occasion. I drove 57.3 miles before filling the tank, and the truck (which was “full” on pickup) took 7.45 gallons.
    That is 7.7 MPG. I singlehandedly neutralized Melissa Etheridge’s set, and I plan to put that on my resume.

    Damnit… my stomach is growling, now. Time to head off for chow.
