Good News: Roses Are Contributing To Climate Apocalypse

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Well, this is a new one. Hadn’t seen the climate cult trot this one out before, and just in time for (surprise) Valentine’s Day. It is funny that this is on Al Jazeera, a “news” o

Roses are red and contributing to climate change, florists warn

It is the classic romantic combination: Valentine’s Day and a bouquet of red roses. But some Parisian florists are trying to wean customers off the flowers because of their ecological cost.

Most roses sold in France in the run-up to Valentine’s Day, a peak sales period for the global flower industry, have to be imported by air freight from countries such as Kenya, resulting in carbon emissions that contribute to climate change.

Florists worried about the environmental damage from this trade say there are viable alternatives that can be grown locally and are trying to encourage their customers to try them.

But these ecologically-minded florists face an uphill struggle because the tradition of gifting red roses on Valentine’s Day, which is celebrated on February 14, is so ingrained in many cultures.

Hortense Harang, founder of an online flower shop called “Fleurs d’Ici” — French for “Flowers from here” — has been spearheading the campaign to wean people off roses.

Here’s an idea: these florists can stop selling them. Of course, then the customers will simply go to other florists. Further, a lot of the flowers florists sell come from far away, so, really, they should just close shop. Just to be on the safe side. But, hey, we have a holiday coming up so the climate cultists have to climavirtue signal.
