Otherwise progressives would love Halloween, since it entails kids demanding treats they did nothing to earn. But it has been found guilty of economic injustice, because climate change causes income inequality and jack-o’-lanterns cause climate change:
Most of the 1.3 billion pounds of pumpkins produced in the U.S. end up in the trash, says the Energy Department’s website, becoming part of the “more than 254 million tons of municipal solid waste (MSW) produced in the United States every year.”
Municipal solid waste decomposes into methane, “a harmful greenhouse gas that plays a part in climate change, with more than 20 times the warming effect of carbon dioxide,” Energy says.
Somehow the USA managed to thrive for over 200 years without the Department of Energy, which was inflicted on the nation during the disastrous Jimmy Carter Administration.
