    1. Are you soon to start to boycott any products made with oil? Such as ball point pens, calculators, cell phones, lifejackets, baby aspirin, first aid kits, and chap stick; just to name a few.

    2. And burning expensive Colorado pot in your hookah also kills fish, wildlife, and brain cells.

      Your post is jibberish.


      (I’ll let you have the last word)

  3. Move to a third world country if you believe the hype. Leave our economy and our check-books alone here. Your ideology stinks of #thenuttyprof

  4. “Move to a third world country if you believe the hype”

    The irony is, of course, that third world countries are the largest polluters around.

    The way to clean up the world’s environment is to export CAPITALISM.
