    Car washing is the next target of environmental regulation.

    One county has banned rinsing car-wash detergent down storm drains; another city plans to restrict Boy-Scout car-wash fund-raisers; another has proposed to ban washing your car at home. Potential penalties include tickets or jail. Reasons: detergent pollution and water waste. Alternatives: commercial car-washes or "waterless" soaps that require no rinsing. Complaints: 1) The car-wash nannies will come for you next. 2) Car-wash detergent is nothing compared to all the other crap that gets washed into storm drains by nature. 3) Car-washing teaches kids teamwork and effort. 4) What if a dog poops on my sidewalk? 5) What about homeless people who wash themselves in public waterways? Human Nature's view: This is an easier call than regulating salt (see below) or trans fats—and it's better than wasting water and praying for rain.

    I'm already doing my part, I haven't washed either of my cars in months.
    Now I have a reason.

    Re: Car washing is the next target of environmental regulation.

    And I read the other day where the environmentalists are now calling for the Jewish people to light one less candle in their Hanukkah celebration to save the planet. In the traditional Jewish celebration which started yesterday, The Jewish Hanukkah, sometimes called the "Festival of Lights" is an eight-day commemoration of rededication of the Temple by the Maccabees after their victory over the Syrians.They light one candle each day for the eight days to celebrate the event.
    It almost makes me want to burn more candles.

    When you require nothing, you get nothing; when you expect nothing, you will find nothing; when you embrace nothing, all you will have is nothing.

    That's ridiculous, they are getting as bad as PETA. (when I say they I guess it should be all of us that care about the planet, I just mean the activists)

    Maybe they should hold their breath to minimize their carbon footprint.
