how many plastic models of carboniferous organisms contain material that was originally part of the organism that the model depicts? it has to be some non-zero number right

this toot brought to you by being in a weird museum thing probably sponsored by the fossil fuel industry, e.g.

i posted this as an instagram story but i feel like the joke didn't really land with that audience, so

@aparrish it's a bit oddly worded, but also largely true ...

@aparrish pretty much amounts to "we use fossil fuels for lots of things right now, so why change that?" 😂

Gourd Forbid we try to remedy our reliance on non-renewable, polluting, energy and material sources. even if it's not as easy as stopping oil usage all at once

@ddipaola there was a really disgusting video playing on a loop that glorified coal mining and made it seem macho and i wanted to unplug it from the wall

@aparrish yeah.

(FTR, to summarize my accidentally deleted toot: the more people we can keep out the mines, the better)

@aparrish I'm a doctor, dammit Jim, not a paleontologist!

@aparrish see you at tha crossroads homisaurus, mourn ya til I join ya

@aparrish I think this plaque missing

This plaque is very one-sided, I keep trying it find a sentence like the following

"But the use of fossil fuels contributes to global warming, pollution and human suffering "
