Terri Lynn Land, Asshole of the Day for August 19,…

Asshole Of The Day, Terri Lynn Land, Asshole of the Day for August 19,….

Terri Lynn Land, Asshole of the Day for August 19, 2014<br />
by TheDailyEdge (Follow @TheDailyEdge)<br />
August 19 is Earth Overshoot Day. It’s the day on which “humanity has exhausted nature’s budget for the year.” As the global population and demand for natural resources both increase, Earth Overshoot Day comes earlier and earlier each year. Which is why we really need to, as the GOP candidate for Senate in Michigan Terri Lynn Land says, “respect the environment.”<br />
Unfortunately, Terri Lynn Land is to environmental deficits what Dick Cheney is to budget deficits. She thinks, where she’s concerned at least, they don’t matter.<br />
Land’s "Respect the Environment" energy policy is the usual Tea Party grab-bag of Koch-enriching, planet-destroying ideas, with the Keystone XL pipeline as its centerpiece. But to make it even worse, the page also features a colorful picture of “Terri’s Truck.”<br />
As Eclectablog points out, the truck in question is an “International Commercial Extreme Truck,” weighing in at 14,500 pounds and getting an embarrassing 8-10 miles per gallon.<br />
There are many reasons why Land’s policies will be a disaster for Michigan and the USA. But on Earth Overshoot Day, it’s worth pointing out, they’ll be a planetary disaster too.<br />
This is Land’s first time as Asshole of the Day.<br />

August 19 is Earth Overshoot Day. It’s the day on which “humanity has exhausted nature’s budget for the year.” As the global population and demand for natural resources both increase, Earth Overshoot Day comes earlier and earlier each year. Which is why we really need to, as the GOP candidate for Senate in Michigan Terri Lynn Land says, “respect the environment.”

Unfortunately, Terri Lynn Land is to environmental deficits what Dick Cheney is to budget deficits. She thinks, where she’s concerned at least, they don’t matter.

Land’s “Respect the Environment” energy policy is the usual Tea Party grab-bag of Koch-enriching, planet-destroying ideas, with the Keystone XL pipeline as its centerpiece. But to make it even worse, the page also features a colorful picture of “Terri’s Truck.”

As Eclectablog points out, the truck in question is an “International Commercial Extreme Truck,” weighing in at 14,500 pounds and getting an embarrassing 8-10 miles per gallon.

This is Land’s first time as Asshole of the Day.
