WHY EARTH DAY SHOULD MATTER FOR THE DRAG RACING COMMUNITY...

Look, I ain't stupid, I realize that a large portion of the drag racing community couldn't give a rat's behind about Earth Day... Yes, I am aware that many people involved with this drag racing scene are now what's referred to as the "alt-right" faction of the political and socio-economic  American demographic, I get that, I think.... And I also understand that there's a rapidly growing movement in America associated with the so-called "alt-right" to NOT care about deregulating pesticides sprayed on our food that destroy our kids' brains at a young age, or pollutants that make freshwater rivers and streams undrinkable and kill the fish and natural sea life-- I guess this movement has something to do with people who want to be considered "macho" or something like that, and somehow it's now believed that destroying our natural resources and wildlife makes you "tough" or something backward-cockeyed like that... Whatever... Well, whatever the case, I still know some people like myself, in the drag racing community, who DO believe that it's worth saving our earth for ourselves and future generations. There are still some of my drag racing friends who think it's a good idea to not poison our natural resources and cause death among wild life-- And with today actually being Earth Day, I hope that I can reach some of those folks who are now insisting it's in our nation's better interest to kill the planet as opposed to respecting it-- I'd like to reach out to all those who are now of the belief and political persuasion that "science is just stupid garbage made up by geeks", and I'd like to try to ask those kind of folks to give some thought to the whole earth issue and how science actually can make sense if you bother to do the objective research-- and maybe, just maybe, try to understand that we really do need our planet to be in better health than it is now-- we really do need our earth to not be a sickened and toxic place-- we need our earth to be healthier so we as people can be healthier... Please consider what I said here... Earth Day isn't just a "stupid hippie day" like some drag racing folks on the internet proclaim, it's a day where we should recognize the need to protect our planet and make the necessary steps to keep it inhabitable-- Let's do what's right for the kids and people of tomorrow... If we screw this planet up to a point that's beyond repair, we're going to be awfully sorry and unfortunate suckers...
