    huh. Going to be a tough thing to fix. I suppose the UN could regulate?

    I know, I know, more regulations. Capitalists have a certain view towards the next quarter's report though not the good of the world.

    So the shhips bringing the oil to us from the ME create more polloution than the cars burning the refined fuel?

    One more reason to go green and reduce our reliance on imported fuel.

    Also another reason to buy American instead of imported goods.

    Go Green, Buy American.
