    They came after alcohol, tobacco, plastic straws, and plastic utensils. They came after free speech. They came after the Constitution and they abused government agencies to come after the President of the United States. What is next? An attack on the rich, famous and Leftist.

    “Wine drinkers contribute to climate change when they don’t do proper research and make the right purchase decisions, The New York Times warns in a how-to guide published Tuesday.

    In its “How Does Your Love of Wine Contribute to Climate Change?” The Times says the wine industry is “a microcosm of larger society” when it comes to climate change, so wine lovers must do their part to save the planet:

    “That industry is simply a microcosm of larger society. Just as politicians have little incentive to address climate change unless voters require it, many wine producers are less inclined to reduce their own carbon footprints unless consumers demonstrate that such steps are important to them.”
    I wonder if this will precipitate a war in California between the wine makers and the tree hugger eco-nuts.

    Did the NYT single out CA vineyards? Or did they go after the industry as a whole, including vineyards in NY and VA? Even if you ignore the fact that the whole AGW thing is a power-grab scam, the wine industry in the US is irrelevant at most, and because of the vines, possibly CO-2 neutral or a net absorbent.

    Yeah. It's more likely the NYT is promoting New York wines, who've already been clashing with other States' wines over internet-sales and shipments across State-lines. If France is jealous of California wines, you can bet New York is.

    No kidding. This doesn't even come close to passing the smell test.

    Anyone who has ever been to the California wine country knows that vineyards there are not made by clear-cutting old-growth forests. They're placed on grasslands that never had any significant number of trees to absorb carbon dioxide. If anything, those vines and many leaves engaging in lots of photosynthesis in the California sun are sucking up more carbon dioxide than the prairie grasses that were there before.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    The article is an excellent illustration of how insane the "save the earth" crowd is.

    The author of the article, Stephen Frank, is the publisher and editor of California Political News and Views. Thus the NYT cranked out the headline.

    What are all of those effete snob liberals going to sip after their gourmet meals? Beer? Bourbon? Their friends will think they have joined the ranks of the deplorables. What a dilemma!
