Climate cultists now say indoor house plants are bad for the planet

Published

One of the most harmful things a person can do with regard to the
environment is purchase indoor plants for a home or office space, as
doing so “pollutes” the atmosphere with carbon, according to the Washington Post.

Writer Nicolás Rivero argues that when it comes to climate change
and global warming, indoor houseplants are an environmental threat as
the trucks that deliver them to the local nursery “spew carbon
emissions.” Likewise, the plastic pots and trays that hold indoor plants
are made from petroleum.

Even though house plants “breathe in” carbon dioxide while
releasing oxygen for humans and animals to breathe, the “environmental
cost” of greening one’s indoor spaces is too high, according to climate
cultists, to legitimize their use.

“Every little thing we do adds up collectively, so if all of us
are doing these things, the collective impact is quite large,” says
Susan Pell, director of the U.S. Botanic Garden in Washington, D.C.

“The mindful act of trying to be more sustainable in one area of your daily life … helps you to be mindful in other areas.”

Stark living for the planet

According to Pell, one particular aspect of house plants that many
people overlook is the distance they typically have to travel – from the
places where they are grown to retail stores and to the insides of
people’s living and working spaces.

“A lot of major nursery suppliers are located in Florida and in California,” Pell added in a statement, as quoted by the Post.

Pell recommends that climate-conscious people instead look for
local plant swaps or garden clubs, which are often organized online via
social media sites.

“Those groups frequently meet multiple times a year and they
share not just plant cuttings and potted plants with each other, but
they’ll share knowledge as well and sometimes have community events,”
Pell noted.

Rivero also warns against using certain soil components like
peat, a natural earth-based substance that forms at the bottom of bogs
and wetlands. A precursor to the formation of coal, peat releases carbon
dioxide (CO2) when harvested and is “not easily renewable,” which makes
it bad in the minds of climate cultists.

“It takes hundreds of years, if not thousands of years, to form,”
Pell says about peat. “We’re cutting into these peatlands and
eventually they’ll all be harvested.”

Instead of peat, Pell wants people to try peat alternatives like
coconut coir or biochar, which retain water in soil mix “with less of
the environmental baggage.”

Pell says gardeners, both of the indoor and outdoor variety,
should commit to purchasing pots, shears, plant stands, and other tools
locally instead of at the store, which typically carries consumer
products made in other countries like China from which they travel long
distances, emitting carbon all along the way.

“I love to buy plant stands from antique stores,” Pell commented
about how she personally tries to save the planet. “You can often find
locally made ceramic pots throughout the country and certainly in our
area” near D.C.

Pell really dislikes “the cheap, black plastic pots that quickly
fall apart,” and instead prefers terracotta and ceramic pots that are
more durable. Disposable pots can also be used, and Pell recommends
those made from biodegradable materials.

Pell also advises against using fertilizer on house plants
because fertilizer, according to climate cultists, is another bad thing
for the environment that has got to go.

“I myself almost never fertilize my houseplants and they do just fine,” Pell said.

CNN Anchor Claims Dangerous Filthy Slums in America Are ‘Vibrant Expressions of Democracy’

CNN host Fareed Zakaria aired an astonishing rant this past
weekend arguing that major US cities are filthy and dangerous because of
“democracy,” and that makes them more “vibrant.”

Zakaria was attempting to provide a counter argument to Tucker
Carlson’s recent report that Russia’s subways are nicer than America’s.

CNN host Fareed Zakaria asserts that democracy goes hand in hand with living in a complete shit hole, and argues dirtier and chaotic cities are more ‘vibrant’ than clean cities which are usually run by ‘authoritarians’. Report: https://t.co/1Pa2QGS8gL pic.twitter.com/tKKZW2PRRJ

Modernity.news reports: “American cities are expressions of democracy,” Zakaria asserted, claiming they are “places where people have to negotiate differences and find ways to live together, that makes them messier and dirtier and sometimes chaotic.”

He then argued “perhaps that is what has made these cities so vibrant and innovative, and why they have been at the forefront in making America the country that leads the world in economics, technology, culture and power.”

Is rampant crime, homelessness, and drug use part of said vibrancy?

Fact check. American cities were not shit holes when the country emerged as the envy of the world. 

Zakaria continued, “Carlson speaks enviously of cities like Tokyo, Singapore, Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and they are indeed wonderful in their own distinctive ways. But what’s striking about all of them is that they are somewhat tame and subdued. The product of authoritarian governments or conformist culture, or both. American cities are different.”

He appears to be seriously claiming that you cannot  have a clean and safe city without some kind of evil dictatorship overseeing it.

Zakaria continued “Carlson put forward a bizarre hodgepodge of assertions he thought the architecture, food and service in Moscow was better than in any American city. Really? Moscow?”

“Outside of a small historic center, it is filled with drab Soviet era concrete buildings. And while the food in Moscow can be quite good…Better than New York or San Francisco? You need to get out more” Zakaria concluded.

Has he been to San Francisco lately?
