Friday Funny: 'Rude and Inconsiderate' Environment

This article from The Onion looks at the Environmental Protection Agency's increasing frustration with a global environment that is not playing its part in environmental protection.

The Onion offers this take on the current state of environmental conservation and protection. It quotes EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson:

"'We're putting in a lot of effort here with recycling and hybrid cars, so a little reciprocity from the environment would be appreciated,' Jackson said. 'God forbid the oceans replenish their own fish. And would it really be so much trouble for the earth's collective biospheres to pitch in and come up with a clean fuel alternative for use in our homes and vehicles? It's the environment's glaciers we're busting our asses trying to save, after all.'

Continued Jackson, 'The environment needs to realize that mankind may not always be around to clean up its messes.'"
