GLENN: Everything science, it's incredible. Meanwhile those conservatives just want to, you know, just beat science to death. Oh, science, it's such a nuisance. Anyway, apparently there's some sort of green machismo that is going on now that's some sort of a pride contest going on between residents in major cities over who has the greenest city. From the New York Times, the green blog, which is my favorite blog. Stu, have you read the green blog?
STU: All the time, Glenn.
GLENN: Oh, it's so great. Quote: I visited some friends in Oakland this weekend and I was impressed when they instructed me to dump my coffee grounds into a composting bin for the city to collect. That's greener than in New York, where the remains of my morning brew get scrapped with the trash. I wonder if you took a green jet to go visit his friends in Oakland. Oakland and New York. Right there on the cutting edge of green. When I think of clean and green, don't you think Oakland, California and New York City? Well, I do. New York obviously is so green. I mean, we're getting rid of our trash so much that it actually smells like trash all the time, and it's fantastic. But even Oakland, who is so green that they are composting coffee grounds, it looks like a coal plant when compared with Toronto. Toronto composts not just food scraps, yard trimmings and paper napkins like Oakland but also they've gone the extra step of dirty diapers, a nonstop source of waste for many families. Well, what to do with all the dirty diapers. Man, I bet Toronto smells great, especially this time of year. Toronto collects all of the dirty diapers.
May I just say there's a job that an American just won't do? I mean, I don't know how much you have to pay me to be the dirty diaper collector, but what they do is they take that and then they distribute them to farmland and parks. That's right. Canada's parks are full of dirty diapers. I mean, not just the parks but also the farmlands. Here's what it is. Canada's babies and toddlers are helping Canadian crops grow. Man, I wish I had some Canadian bacon right now. If you have some concern, and I mean, you know, it's crazy but just in case you happen to be concerned about, you know, taking baby crap and putting it all over your food crops, don't worry. It's a green program so you'll feel good about the baby crap all over your tomatoes. The Toronto program provides assurances that the process is completely sanitary and safe. And I know. I mean, I get it. You know, we do that with, you know, animal I mean, you know, that's what manure is. I mean, but still, who's scraping it out of the diaper? By the way, don't even think of spending an extra second thinking about this one. Just toss the diaper into the green bin and impress all of your green friends that your city is the only one that uses crap diapers to grow their food. I mean, do that. Oakland, they got coffee grounds. Really? Hey, you watch. When my youngest pushes a load out, we are going to be eating like kings by tonight.
