Looks like they will have to find some new lie so they can scam money from the gullible people out there.
I don't disagree. Be responsible, but not stupid. Some over-reacting policies could be just as detrimental, ie, CFLs. That's one of the most bone-headed moves this agenda has foisted upon us. Aside from the dangers of more ultraviolet and blue light emitted by CFLs, polluting our planet with more mercury cannot be a good thing. CFLs are not designed for the normal usage cycles most people require of bulbs (ie. short term usage cycling on and off), so they expire more quickly than the incandescent bulbs they replaced, adding to our landfills. This just wasn't well thought out before it was implemented.

Denial to me is just excusing commercialism ... there cannot be any doubt we are really having a serious impact on this planet... so why shouldn't we try to limit it? .. people seem to love the idea of us not having an impact and things not being as bad as it might seem to be.. lets just say that's true.. we should still be trying to limit our impact because this is our only home ... we're a long ways away from being able to leave earth... if we're not careful we could be the next big extinction ...
