Ice Bucket Challenge: An Inconvenient Truth
First, this is just another way in which obnoxious Americans flaunt their wealth to the third world. What of the hundreds of millions of lives that could be bettered, if only they had access to fresh clean ice and water? And here we are just throwing it on ourselves, wasting it.
Furthermore, has anyone considered the Carbon Footprint left behind from each needlessly created ice cube? How many three- horned toads, trees or blades of grass will die as a result of each ice bucket challenge? How much higher will the oceans rise, and how much more will coming disasters, brought on by Global Warming and/or Climate Change, be compounded?
Not to mention the fact that each ice bucket challenge taker will then have to prematurely wash and dry their clothing, no doubt using electric washers and dryers, further impacting our environment negatively.
How much Fossil Fuel is being burnt, how much ash is being puked into the atmosphere, burning holes in our precious ozone layer, due to the generation of the extra electricity needed to power the ice makers for this challenge?
What will AlGore do about this abuse of American liberty, and where is the outrage?
