the american environmentalists buying new electric cars September 6, 2016
they speak of sustainability
from the comfort of their luxury
but the answer is poverty
isn’t it funny
to watch the wasteful
throw those words like hand grenades
at the resourceful
who make do with nothing?

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.

    It’s kinda bullshit for a white American man with excess disposable income to spend on new toys every year to complain about overpopulation. Electric or not, the energy he uses in one year could support 100 people in Bangladesh or Pakistan. Sustainability will have to address inequality or it isn’t really sustainable. And there’s nothing environmentally friendly about buying and consuming a new car every year.
