OK then...

A half-dozen protesters were arrested Tuesday morning outside the Bank of America corporate headquarters building while demonstrating against the bank's financing of coal projects.

OK geniuses, if you don't like coal, let me tell you what you can do to help:

STOP USING ELECTRICITY

Yeah, it's that simple. 57% of electricity used in the US is generated by burning coal. So if you stop using it, you're going a long way toward ending the problem. But you have to totally stop. No fair leaching power from other folks by using their fridge, or washing machine. You want hot water for a bath or whatever, then build a fire. (O-o-oh, greenhouse gases...guess that doesn't work either. Hope the sun is shining.) So on and so forth.

Ready to do whatever you must to save Mother Earth?

I didn't think so.
