You just can’t make this stuff up!
It seems that the extreme anti-humanist agenda of the “enviornmental” special interest is not nearly as veiled as it used to be. Witness this card from an “eco-friendly” trivia-based board game.
Amazing, isn’t it? The best thing you can do to be as “Green” as possible is to be fat and out of shape, because then you’ll probably die sooner, and the sooner you die, the better! Presumably this would also mean that other actions you could take that might result in your death would be “green.” So not wearing your seatbelt, playing smoking and engaging in dangerous activities would be a good thing. On the other hand, one would have to think that things like coronary bypass surgery or radiation therapy for cancer would be very un-green, as those would likely result in longer life.
But why even bother with this? Isn’t the obvious answer just to go buy a length of organic, bpa-free rope and hang yourself before you do any more damage? It would seem that would be the greenest thing you could possibly do!
By the way, this is indeed from a real game, called “The Green Game.“ It’s made by TDC Games, and is sold with the slogan “Play this game… save the planet.” That’s a rather strange sales-line for a product that isn’t actually useful for anything and is made out of cardboard and plastic that could easily be used for something more important. It’s not a durable item and has pieces that won’t biodegrade. They do, however, state that it’s made from recycled materials.
I suppose you could try to choke on one of the pieces. By this logic, that would be very green.
And if that’s not enough for you, it even comes with little paper “carbon offsets.” If I roll my eyes any further back, my optic nerve might break.
