(Newser) – Americans should waste all the energy they can on June 12, says conservative grassroots group, in order to free themselves from “carbon footprint guilt.” Grassfire doesn’t believe humanity is to blame for global warming, and wants to strike back against “climate alarmists.” Organizers suggest having a barbecue, going for a drive, leaving the lights on, and/or smoking a cigar.

“Carbon Belch Day will have at least as much impact on the so-called 'planetary emergency' of man-made global warming as the goofy save-the-Earth mandates telling us to turn our lights off for an hour,” Grassfire’s president said in a statement to InformationWeek.
