Green America – Oh No! Not the Grill!

The Charcoal Smoke makes thing flavorful - but is bad for the atmosphere

The Charcoal Smoke makes thing flavorful - but is bad for the atmosphere

Going Green may well mean …

Giving up the charcoal!

Though barbecue purists would probably fight to the death to keep their charcoal grills sizzling, the truth is that natural gas and propane are hands-down the most eco-friendly. Both charcoal and wood burn dirty, producing tiny soot particles that pollute the air and can worsen chronic heart and lung problems. In fact, a 2003 study found that Texans, who like to say that they “live and breathe barbecue,” may be doing exactly that. In Houston — with some of the worst air quality in the country — meat smoke wafting up from restaurants and grills makes up a somewhat significant part of the pollution mix.

Goodbye Big Green Egg?

Goodbye Big Green Egg?

Oh Nooooooooooooo! Not the charcoal!

Both briquettes and lump charcoal seriously pollute the air. Lump charcoal, made from charred wood, may add flavor, but it also contributes to deforestation, and its inefficient kilning process adds loads of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. Charcoal briquettes do have the benefit of being made partly from sawdust (a good use of waste wood), but popular brands may also contain coal dust, starch, sodium nitrate, limestone, and borax. Nothing like a burger grilled over … borax!?

Iranian Government Quotes Bush Vs. Gore as Justification for Repression

Wow… the 5 Thugs in Robes not only screwed America with the illegitimate Bush Vs. Gore decision handing the election of 2000 to the illegitimate Bush…

It’s now being cited as case law by every repressive regime on the planet – including Iran as a justification for the brutal crackdown on protestors.

“The promotion of anarchy and vandalism by Western powers and media is by no means acceptable,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Hassan Qashqavi told a news conference. He did not rule out the possible expulsion of some European ambassadors in Tehran…

Referring to the tight race between Democrat Al Gore and Republican George W. Bush in 2000 and other U.S. Presidential elections, Qashqavi said:

“No one in that race encouraged the American people to stage a riot or anything like that and it was actually the (U.S. Supreme Court) that solved the issue.”

Geez – Now we know where all those old hanging chad, and erratic touch screen machines went… Bush won in Iran, too!

Staying Out of Iran

Lot of criticism this past week from the  neo-con-nitwit set directed against President Obama for failing to “do something” about the internal crisis in Iran. Of course we know the neo-con-nitwit response would be to fly onto a US carrier in the Persian Gulf to prance across the deck declaring our unyielding commitment to “Mission Accomplished” and sock stuffed flight suits…

Why is this a stupid idea – Conservative George Will explains for his less intellectually endowed brethren-

Why is any US involvement a bad idea? The Iranians have a long memory of foreign intervention in their country, including the US support of the Shah.  Let’s not forget the millions killed in the US sponsored and supported Iraq-Iran War.
