I’d teach children how to ignore the hypocrisy of condemning logging, mining and farming — while having roofs over their heads, heat in their homes and food on their tables.


That's a good one.

How about teaching yourself the hypocrisy of deriding environmental regulation while breathing demonstrably cleaner air and drinking cleaner water? Or the hypocrisy of deriding using a credit market to address environmental problems while no one hardly ever hears the words "acid rain" do to the SO2 and NOx regulatory regimes.


If I wanted America to fail … I would transform the environmental agenda from a document of conservation to an economic suicide pact.


Here's your suicide pact, douchebag:

There's more pollution in this cloud than both of those pics combined.

Then hopefully he won't be surprised when he gets splashed in the face.

Imagine that...fanboi lip synching the Libtard party line that all Republicans want to do is give you dirty air dirty water and kill old people.

Radical environmentalism: Green on the outside, red on the inside.

Congratulations. You've demonstrated exactly what the OP was talking about. Nobody here wants to breath soot or drink sewage, but by angrily dismissing any reservations about the agenda of people who are more concerned with control of the economy than they are with reducing pollution, you demonstrate the extremist mindset to a tee.

Here's an economics lesson for you: Everything has costs and benefits. In the private sector, if you want to accomplish something, you have to weigh the two against each other and determine how much you are willing to spend in order to accomplish your goal. The public sector, which has no such constraints, doesn't have to take the costs into account, because it doesn't incur them. Thus, the entire logging industry is decimated in order to protect spotted owls, millions of acres of farmland lie fallow so that environmentalists in San Francisco can say that they saved a fish that they've never seen, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, a hunk of arctic tundra that nobody in their right mind would ever set foot on is kept in a pristine (i.e., barren) state while we pay $4 a gallon for gasoline, most of which goes to despotic regimes that use the money to undermine us. Nebulous benefits achieved at tremendous cost through the stroke of an unelected bureaucrat's pen is not what America is about. Is that what you want?.

Sadly for him and his idiot minion's I fear the answer is yes.

You know it and I know it, but I want to see him admit it.

As an aside to the thread - It is always a good thing to note anytime ANWR is discussed that it was set aside for one purpose - as a drilling location, not as a 'pristine wildlife' location.

That's a good one...You really seem to be contrarian just for contrarian's sake anymore.

Besides, I think three different things are being convoluted here.

The one thing we are talking about is cheap energy and why can't we have cheap energy and why is it such a bad thing that we have cheap energy. America does cheap energy very well. We are the Saudi Arabia of coal and natural gas. Natural gas is incredibly cheap right now. Why? Because people are going after it, it's proven and we have boatloads of it. We also have more coal then we know what to do with it. We also do coal very well. Why not further develop this product instead of choking it off like Barry wants to? Killer Kennedy wanted wind as long as it was not in his back yard. Hypocritical fat buffoon. Nuclear too. Barry tells us it's OK for Iran to have nuke power but for some reason nuke power in the US is choked off.

You posted pictures of fog and dirty water. Today we have clean air and water and natural gas and coal. Why can't we do both. Why can't we have clean air/water and have coal/gas as energy? Why do we want to phase those energy products out in favor of energy products that may never work efficiently? Wind and solar are great. They're just not ready to be the replacements yet. Solar, at the consumer level, is prohibitively expensive right now. Would I like to be off the power grid? Off course. But not at the current cost for setup, storage, etc...

Finally, the EPA is thrown into the argument. Do we need the EPA? I'm sure we do. I haven't studied their full mandate or what business they have stuck their nose into but, as a betting man, I'm sure they have crossed the line or over-regulated someone along the way. I think there was just a thread on CU about that couple in the midwest that cleaned the EPAs clock over some wetlands, so there's that at least.

The point is, we all want clean air and clean water. At least I do. I'm sure the conservatives on CU do too. The question is, when did cheap energy become a bad thing? Taboo even. I guess about the same time it became shameful to be rich and prosperous or at least to want that for yourself.
