    Selfish, stupid, and shortsighted. Some exceptionally so.

    Contrary to what the ultra-partisan, brainwashed, kool-aid drinking, tree hugging left would have you believe, there are very few 'deniers'. There are a LOT of skeptics that think we are being forced into bad policy, regulation, and products based on flawed science and opportunistic speculation.

    Contrary to what that same group from the left would try to convince you, we skeptics do not want dirty water, dirty air, contaminated soil, extinction of God's wonderful creatures on Earth, or spoiling of aesthetic beauty. And the more affluent we are, the more important clean water, clean air, uncontaminated soil, God's wonderful creatures, and aesthetic beauty becomes.

    That group on the left would attempt to force a more pristine world by taking away rights, liberties, options, choices, and opportunities from those they deem to be 'greedy' and 'uncaring'. That is a fool's errand of course based on faulty perceptions, and it will inevitably be futile to accomplish a purer environment. It could be very effective in making all pawns and slaves of the state.

    The skeptics think the better way is to look for efficiencies and conservation wherever reasonable and possible, and otherwise help the poor become more affluent so they too can have the luxury of caring about God's creatures and aesthetic beauty as well as clean water, air, and soil.

    You know......you're right s0n............

    The best course of action would be to go a fully green economy tomorrow and lose another 2.3 million jobs!!!! THAT sounds like a plan!!!

    And by the way...........I am "exceptional".
