This has to be one of the most bizarre and craziest ideas yet to come from the mouths of “eco-whacked out “warmists” that seem to have lately, “gone completely off the rails” with the threat that their misinformed and unscientific claims that the Earth is Doomed are not going over well any more with the general public!
In all fairness we should just let these people keep talking and ranting because their rhetoric is becoming the stuff of a Comedy Club theme.
The more their lies and false claims fall on deaf ears, it seems they try and grab on to anything that will generate publicity. This one article has definitely done that!
Also one must give this guy credit for even publishing his name in public along with his “johnny come lately” organization, but then we must also question the state of mind of someone who would think this was a good idea!
Read on and maybe there should be another “warning” posted every time one of these Greenies makes a comment just so our children don’t think all “adults” are “crazier than a rat in a coffee can”!

TORONTO — An environmental group focused on the dangers of climate change is lobbying for Canadian municipalities to pass bylaws that would require warning labels on gas station pump nozzles.
Lawyer Robert Shirkey says the warning labels on the nozzles would be similar to those found on cigarette packages and would act to warn users of the negative effects of fossil fuels.
“The future of the planet is literally in the palm of your hand (when you pick up the nozzle),” Shirkey, founder of Our Horizon, told an audience Thursday at the Centre for Social Innovation in Toronto.
“A lot of people won’t like seeing them but the placement is important because it speaks to diffusion of responsibility,” he said. “Collectively, we’re endangering the planet.”
The labels state that demand for fuel products may harm wildlife, damage ecosystems, cause drought and famine, cause anxiety and depression in children, and put 30 per cent of species at risk of extinction.
Pictures of at-risk arctic caribou, starving families in Africa, and a sad child looking at his own reflection accompany the warnings.
“Imagine if we see these labels every time, how long will it be before we demand more from government institutions,” said Shirkey.
Canada led the world when it placed health warnings accompanied by images on cigarette packages, and Shirkey said that he hopes Canada can once again be a pioneer.
Our Horizon has been campaigning since January in Toronto.
Its website features a database of municipal councillors across Canada and encourages users to send a letter of concern to their local councillor.
Shirkey said he is working to expand and complete of a database of every municipal leader across the globe and is using crowdsourcing to achieve his goal.
“I’m trying to rally the troops,” Shirkey said.
