Now They Are Coming After House Plants, It’s All About Control At This Point

Just when you think the insanity couldn’t get more ridiculous, the left does it again.

That’s right, folks, houseplants are killing the planet.

According to a report from the Washington Post, raising house plants is bad for the environment and contributes to climate change.

“The trucks that transport plants spew carbon emissions, plastic pots and synthetic fertilizers are made from petroleum and the harvesting of soil components like peat can tear up slow-forming habitats,” the article, written by climate solutions reporter Nicolás Rivero, says.

Ricero’s article states that people should only find plants through garden clubs or “local plant swaps” to reduce carbon emissions. He also said that people should only use biodegradable pots.

Bjorn Lomborg, a Danish author and fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institute, who told “Fox & Friends Weekend” he found it “silly.”

“Look, you’re not going to solve climate change by telling people to be poor and be colder, be less comfortable, fly less, drive less. Now, have less plants. You’re going to do this [fix climate change] through innovation,” he said on Sunday.

“So stop with this sort of doom-mongering and start thinking about what really works. Innovation is what’s going to work.”

There is some good new as well, Biden’s war on kitchen appliances has been blocked.

The 5th Circuit ruled against the DOE’s ridiculous rules:

“Even if DOE could consider dishwashers’ and clothes washers’ ‘efficiency’ in both ‘energy use’ and ‘water use,’ the 2020 Rules likely promoted greater efficiency in both categories than the Repeal Rule,” the court’s decision stated. “Assuming both energy conservation metrics are on the table, the States argue, and DOE does not appear to dispute, that one important aspect of that problem is whether appliance regulations actually reduce energy and water consumption.”

“Yet the administrative record contains ample evidence that DOE’s efficiency standards likely do the opposite: They make Americans use more energy and more water for the simple reason that purportedly ‘energy efficient’ appliances do not work,” it continued.
