    Study: Ozone Smog Pollution Expanding
    February 07, 2011 - A new study provides the strongest evidence yet that ozone smog, a type of air pollution most often found in big cities, poses a major public health danger. The study found that even at low levels, ozone smog increases the risk of asthma attacks and irritation in the respiratory system; together with air pollution it can also contribute to heart attacks and strokes.

    Hey Toro -- those Armani suits aren't cheap. And you don't expect lawyers to be saving pandas in
    jeans and tee shirts and flying tourist class --- DO YOU?

    Such WWF events are at the behest of the concentration of wealth. The only people with money to support these kinds of funds are increasingly becoming a smaller group. This small group of elites do not live in reality. They have become accustom to opulence and will not tolerate anything else but the best. So in order to get donations they need to formulate approaches that appeal to the only population with money to spare. In fact, they have so much money to spare, there's a magazine devoted to "How to Spend It" because affluent folks have too much to know how to spend.

    On this RARE occasion, we generally agree WITH REGARDS SPECIFICALLY to the WWF..
    But not in general.. You missed the ethics of the problem, because of your false equations of wealth to evil..

    The WWF is committing MORAL crimes against nature by stealing that money...
    When "too much wealth" is acquired ON FALSE PREMISES -- it irks me as well.

    And NO --- I will not engage on your general fantasies of zero sum "fairness".. This is SPECIFIC to this group of lobster-eating legal frauds..

    I do not think wealth is inherently evil. How did you reach that conclusion?

    Ecotourism is controversial. It has pluses and minuses. Personally, I think it's dumb. I don't need to see the damn whales directly to appreciate them, and I can appreciate the nature in my backyard.

    People worried about the ozone ought to get rid of all their frivolous pleasures in life that we can live without but contribute to global warming and ozone depletion.

    Get rid of your cats, they are a burden on the environment.

    Only drink water, no Soda Pops.

    No TV

    No computer

    You need none of this too live but yet it makes pollution and burns oil which you all are up in arms over.

    So you're saying I should kill denialists? That's not very nice. I reject that demand.

    (Hey, you did tell me to get rid of the things that contribute the most to global warming. By your logic, that means you should be the one removed.)
