i believe it is a person’s personal choice, based on information one has, to consume whatever it is one wants. but.. really, white house???! 
18 months ago, our most respected climatologist, NASA’s James Hansen, calculated that because that patch of tarsands oil is so big, and because the sandy bitumen it contains is the dirtiest oil on earth, burning it on top of everything else we burn would mean it was “game over for the climate.

am up bright and early, my cs host has the tv turned on to the inauguration.

Wow those are pretty cool center bike lanes the motorcade is slowly driving on.

4) Toddlers. Oh, they think they’re so cute. They think they’re so important, what with claiming to be… what was it again? Right. “The future.” I mean, please.

Enough of them. Look at it this way: If it wasn’t for toddlers, we wouldn’t have to worry about the environment, the water supply, the economy, oil, anything at all.
