As if we have not heard enough about this fictitious man made Global Warming crisis and what causes it, well let’s add another one.

According to the Obama Administration via the Department of Energy pumpkins contribute to global warming by decomposing into methane gas.  Now you have a great reason to tell your children you cannot carve a pumpkin this year or any year.

On the DOE’s website they say:

“With the passing of Halloween, millions of pounds of pumpkins have turned from seasonal decorations to trash destined for landfills, adding to more than 254 million tons of municipal solid waste produced in the United States every year, this Halloween, think of turning this seasonal waste into energy as a very important 'trick' that can have a positive environmental and energy impact.”

But no fear our DOE is going to spend our tax dollars in a hope to turn those global warming agents into clean beautiful energy.

Stop carving pumpkins and save the planet.
