In unbelievable news today, the Seattle Parks and Recreation have proposed a ban on bonfires for the next two years on the public beaches.
According to a memo to the park board from the staff released Thursday, “The overall policy question for the Board is whether it is good policy for Seattle Parks to continue public beach fires when the carbon … emissions produced by thousands of beach fires per year contributes to global warming.”
Seriously? There are other things we can do to help fight carbon emissions then ban bonfires. The #1 thing we should start doing is build Nuclear Power Points. What is the carbon emission of a Nuclear Power Plant? Start building those then…. I think I read someplace the carbon footprint is 1.5% of a gas power plant.
Build Nuclear Power Plants, don’t ban beach bonfires.
