I've decided to turn the tables, and have started using the term "ecoweenie" to describe people who would rather make fun of those who care than care themselves. This particular ecoweenie (or maybe he's just a giant weenie), after cherry picking through this blog, provided his analysis of my "problem":
"My professional diagnosis and prescription: Irony deficient Julie needs either a drink or a smack upside the head."Isn't that sweet? Someone who gives a flying leap about the children needs a smack upside the head? Why do people waste their time writing this stuff, making the world a worse place, when they could be watching more sports on TV and staying out of our way?
Well, since this is a blog about climate compassion, I would like to send out compassion for this person's children (if he has any), and for all the ecoweenies in the world who don't realize what a difference they could make if they were on the right team, fighting for the right of future generations to have a habitable and hospitable planet.
