Mean Green



The environazis over at Greenpeace have tried to bash Nintendo as an environmentally unfriendly company for their use of toxic flame retardant chemicals and plastics in game consoles. The tree-huggers also lambasted the House of Mario for, "no voluntary takeback of products, no information on banned products, no information on how the company communicates with its supply chain and no policy on use of vinyl plastics."

Greenpeace has missed the forest for the trees just as it did last year with Apple. Last year, Apple was criticized for using many of the same materials in iPods. "The Greener Electronics Guide is our way of getting the electronics industry to face up to the problem of e-waste," detailed Greenpeace. They overlook the fact that iPods save the environment because music downloads don't produce "e-waste". Compact discs do create waste.

I will detail other ways in which Nintendo helps the environment.
  • Nintendo DOES have a recycling program. It's called GameStop.
  • Video games keep kids indoors, which cuts down on greenhouse gasses created when mom drives them to soccer practice in her SUV.
  • Playing Wii Golf saves the electricity needed for a cart. Playing Wii Baseball saves trees needed for wooden bats. Playing Wii Bowling saves trees from becoming bowling pins.
  • The more time kids spend playing video games, the less time they spend reading books. This saves more trees.
  • Cooking Mama allows kids to learn how to cook without killing innocent animals for meat.

I think I've made my point.

What could happen? If my firewalls are on I get kicked off the server during gameplay if I even get in at all. On the Playstation Site they say to enter port numbers but I may have did that wrong so I just take them off completely but only when I play online. Help?

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. Last week I saw this site:
[url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Play Ps3 tournaments for cash[/url]
They say you can play online NHL game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Nowadays, I feel good, I started to get real income.
It gets down to choose a correct partner who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the income with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

So you think the kids should stay inside and play games and not go to soccer practice, because it`s more environment friendly?

I'm very disappointed with this post. I expected more given the quality of your videos etc. And I don't just mean Godwin's law.

"Nintendo DOES have a recycling program. It's called GameStop."

That means Nintendo does not have a recycling policy. If they choose to use dangerous chemicals when there are non toxic alternatives, do unwary customers not have the right to return products?

"Video games keep kids indoors, which cuts down on greenhouse gasses created when mom drives them to soccer practice in her SUV."

This is far too specific and correlation does not imply causation.

"Playing Wii Golf saves the electricity needed for a cart.
Playing Wii Baseball saves trees needed for wooden bats. Playing Wii Bowling saves trees from becoming bowling pins."

You assume one is a replacement for another. You also neglect the embedded energy, carbon and resources in each of these. For example, bats do not need any additional non human resources to function.

"The more time kids spend playing video games, the less time they spend reading books. This saves more trees."

it is inaccurate to compare the resources and energy used to create a book with those used to create a video game, and then the additional resources required to make the game function.

"Cooking Mama allows kids to learn how to cook without killing innocent animals for meat."

Ignoring the merits of vegetarianism, (I assume from your tone that you are one) you seem to be implying that kids would learn how to cook and then not cook.

A disappointed fan,

Greetings! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to
correct this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
Appreciate it!
