Welcome to Seattle’s enviro-nitwit checklist:

Bullying residents into buying Gorebulbs and terrorizing pants off children as part of the mayor’s green brainwashing? Check.

Anti-plastic bag policing and tax hikes? Check.

And now…closing off streets to cars and pushing residents to jump rope and draw chalk art? Check:

To encourage people to drive less this summer, Seattle will close three streets to cars for several hours on three Sundays in Alki, Capitol Hill and Rainier Valley.

“Just for one day, just chill,” Mayor Greg Nickels said at a news conference today, encouraging people to bicycle, walk, jump rope and create chalk art instead.

The city is encouraging bicyclists and pedestrians to use the streets instead. Local car access will be allowed for residents in the areas.

Yep, who needs drilling? Seattleites will just jump up and down on the streets until they find new energy sources– or draw them with chalk and imagine they’re real!

Planet savior Nancy Pelosi is all ears.
