Flat-Screen TV Gas 'a Climate Time Bomb'

Specifically, your flat screen TV. Yep, its causing global warming, . . .oh I’m sorry, climate change. Gotta love those scientists.


“Booming demand for flat-screen televisions could have a greater impact on global warming than the world’s largest coal-fired power stations, scientists warn.”

Saw that yesterday

Plasma, LCDs blamed for accelerating global warming

I think I will go look at Plasma and LCD TV’s today.

I’d be doing the same thing if I had the money. The only thing I could do right now is have another bonfire.

We-e-eell …

They might want to take plasma TVs away from you. But they’re hardly likely to want to take TV away from you altogether. If they did that, how would they pump all of that propaganda and garbage into your sitting room? Where would children learn about reality if they did that?!

Most powerful mind-control device developed in the past half century …


All of which reminds me of some very funny lyrics by Frank Zappa …

I’m The Slime
by Frank Zappa

I am gross and perverted, I’m obsessed 'n deranged
I have existed for years, but very little has changed
I’m the tool of the Government and industry too
For I am destined to rule and regulate you

I may be vile and pernicious, but you can’t look away
I make you think I’m delicious with the stuff that I say
I’m the best you can get, have you guessed me yet?
I’m the slime oozin’ out from your TV set

You will obey me while I lead you, and eat the garbage that I feed you
Until the day that we don’t need you
Don’t got for help…no one will heed you
Your mind is totally controlled; it has been stuffed into my mold
And you will do as you are told until the rights to you are sold

That’s right, folks … Don’t touch that dial!

Well, I am the slime from your video, oozin’ along on your livin’ room floor

I am the slime from your video, can’t stop the slime, people, look at me go!
