Leonardo Dicaprio at KCA: “Our mother is hurting!”

The Green activists love to talk about their green endeavours; however, occasionally they take it a little far.  First, we had the speech Al Gore made where he basically told young teenage children that their parents were out of touch and didn’t understand the modern world.  Now, it’s Leonardo DiCaprio telling the millions of young children at the Kids Choice Awards that “our mother is hurting”.

I haven’t seen much reaction to this on blogosphere yet, most likely because most bloggers likely weren’t watching the awards show.  However, I happened to catch a few minutes of the telecast, and what I saw was ALL ABOUT some green activism.  Leonardo was there to accept his award for “The Big Green Help” (which never fails to remind me of Sara Silverman’s “The Great Schlep”), which is given to the person that exhibits excellence in advancing green initiatives.  During his speech, he said this:

Right now, our mother, Mother Earth, is hurting.  And she needs a generation of thoughtful, caring, and active kids like all of you to protect her future.  You can help us win the battle to clean up our air, our water, our land, to protect our forests, our oceans and our wildlife.

There was much more to the acceptance speech, which drug on for at least an hour and was the longest acceptance speech I’ve ever heard.  After hearing that, several things came to mind.  First of all, I can’t imagine why this is on a show geared to young tweens.  At this point in their lives, the environment is not a priority.  Secondly, I don’t understand why the people at Nick feel the need to shove something as controversial as Global Warming down our throats at an awards show for kids.  At a time when most are beginning to doubt the mere existence of Global Warming, Nick is in full force pushing a green way of life.  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have anything against a green lifestyle; I do, however, have something against a children’s channel taking advantage of children by pitching farce like Global Warming.  And I don’t necessarily have a problem with children being educated in taking care of the environment, but using lines like “our mother is hurting”?

What do you think of this?  How does this compare to Al Gore’s speech earlier in the year?  Leave your comments below or send us an e-mail at theconservativejournal@gmail.com!

Global Warming: Dang, You Fooled Us

The heat is coming, just wait until June!

The heat is coming, just wait until June!

The global warming epidemic that is apparently going to cause our demise very shortly, unless we learn to harness the air as a fuel source of course, has apparently been on a hiatus the past few weeks as record cold has settled in across the enitre nation, as well as overseas.  The state of Kentucky is virtually shut down due to the extreme weather that has pounded on the state for days now.  Just two months ago, southern Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas experienced up to 8 inches of snow.  (Looks like to me the only “global warming” is occurring in the Oval Office).  Sound a little strange to you that while the liberal/eco-junkie population are preaching of imenant environmental meltdown the country is experiencing one of it’s coldest years on record?  It should, and you aren’t alone.  But of course with the rush of frigid air comes the wave of ridiculous claims by the left.  These range from, “Duh, we said it was going to get colder first” too “It’s the kids’ fault!”, all of which make no sense.  The very principal that people have the power to control one of the powerful things in the world, the environment, is ridiculous, but that’s another story for another day.

So what do you think of all this?  What do you expect the next excuse for the cold weather will be?  How much longer can Al Gore act oblivious to the cold weather?  Leave a comment below or send an e-mail to theconservativejournal@gmail.com and it may featured on the site!

Obama Growing Orchids in the Oval Office?

When your the president, the heat can be as high as you want.

When your the president, the heat can be as high as you want.

Remember when Barack said that if everyone would just toughen up and quit putting the thermostat on 72 the world would be a better place? (Alright, so I stretched it a little.  The basic statement was we can’t keep our heat on 72 and expect to be taken seriously with environmental advancements).  Well apparently that only applies to us (what’s new?)  because instead of Barack simply putting on his jacket in the Oval Office, he put the heat at a reported 78 degress.  I see absolutley NO problem with using the heater (that’s why it’s there), but come one, don’t preach about being green and conserving when you keep your heat 6 degrees above what you made out to be a ludacris amount.  David Axelrod, genius that he is, made a statement on the matter: “He’s from Hawaii, O.K.?  He likes it warm.  You could grow orchids in there.”  Nicely put, Dave.  So in my mind, Barack better be opening up a florist and pumping the procedes into the economy, because that’s the only way this hypocracy is accpetable.  What this shows me is that he is not sincerely concerned with the global warming hooey, so why should we be?
What do you think about this?  Am I just blowing this completely out of proportion?  Probably so.  Leave a comment below or send us an e-mail at theconservativejournal@gmail.com.  Remember your post could be featured on the site!
