Complaining about environmental destruction? count me in.
Complaining about environmental destruction, stogie hanging out of your mouth, count me out.
What a Rebel.
This has been running through my head for sometime now and I'm just going to let it loose. If you smoke cigarettes, bum cigarettes, roll cigarettes, engage in any activity involving tobacco from unknown sources, you should sit back, relax, and shut up about environmental destruction.
There are no statistics readily available to prove cigarettes are instrumental in deforestation, pollution, and other forms of oppression, but its quite simple:
Butts: Landfill, Plastic, Fish Killers
Tobacco: chemicals, fertilizers, water, land (that could be used for vegetables). In the United States there are aproximatley 37,013 classified tobacco farms, All farms
producing tobacco averaged about 7.5 acres in 2002. That means that 277,500 acres of land in this country are used to grow tobacco, and not vegetables.
I just don't understand vegetarian, vegan, cigarette smokers...
And then there is another complication: Cigarettes are full of chemicals!
* A colourless cyclic hydrocarbon obtained from coal and petroleum, used as a solvent in fuel and in chemical manufacture - and contained in cigarette smoke.
* A It known carcinogen associated with leukaemia.
GOOD JOB! The money going to abroad wars focused on securing petroleum, the oil spill in the gulf, they weren't just keeping in mind the millions of dependent cars, plastic products..ect. They were thinking about the Benzene chemical manufacturers, the industry that exists because of your cigarette and soda addiction.
Solidarity with North Carolina, Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia..whose former plantations that perpetuated slavery, now perpetuate slavery to cigarettes, inducing environmental destruction and social comfort.
