First Cow Farts, Now This

“People growing marijuana indoors use 1 percent of the U.S. electricity supply, and they create 17 million metric tons of carbon dioxide every year (not counting the smoke exhaled) according to a report by Evan Mills, an energy analyst at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.” [SF Business Times]


“From the perspective of individual consumers, a single Cannabis cigarette represents 2 pounds of (carbon dioxide) emissions,” Mills says.

Given that most reliable sources quote a figure of around 22 lbs of CO2 for a pound of beef, I’d say that’s a pretty good deal…

TJ: Talibunny to headline a Koch Industries-funded teabagger rally in Madison this weekend. Chicago Stinquers, get in CB’s car and get up there!

@SanFranLefty: She’s fading fast. I’m starting to find Bachmann much more interesting.

@nojo: The observation was more about how blatant the Koch brothers are than Palin per se.

And re: “She’s fading fast.”

Should we start a pool on what month and year it will be when she’s the centerfold in Playboy? I can already picture her lolling about on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace with nothing but a rifle and an American flag draped around her. (And can you imagine the sales numbers to the thwapping teabaggers?)

@SanFranLefty: Granted, but Palin’s disappearance from the national fretfest has been on my mind the past few days. I’m not quite ready to stick a fork in her, but her moment may be passing sooner than I expected.

@SanFranLefty: Darling, the imagery! Do you want to cause hysterical blindness?

@nojo: bachmann is better looking than palin in a pilgrim kinda way and her voice is not as excruciating as palins though her thoughts certainly are.

@SanFranLefty: playboy? that’s way too soft. how bout hustler or swank, especially since both palin and bachmann should be considered milbfs, not just milfs. back in the day before i became politicized, i would have let both somf. can anyone decipher somf?

@jwmcsame: Yes. Strange that I didn’t even have to think about it.
