Here is another example... drilling for offshore oil and natural gas... why, why, why would we not drill it ourselves and let a small group of so called environmentalist control congress and shut it down.... so the CHINESE or Europeans can set up shop in the same location!

I don't think people are "anti-environment" I think there the "greenies" are so bent on pushing a radical agenda that isn't possible that the true message gets lost.
Sure we need to protect our environment, but at the same time you can't expect everybody to go back to living in mud huts and dieing of starvation because, of "global warming". The whole global warming argument is a ruse and has become politicized and the movement behind it treats it as a religion.
Man Made global warming debates usually end up with the greenies calling the one that don't believe the theory "deniers" and neanderthals and all kinds of other nasty names.
The fact is that the AGW crowd says the debate is over, but in reality there is no scientific evidence to back it up, in fact most of the evidence goes against the theory. But the greenies push and push and almost refuse to listen to reason.

Well I am anti-environmental Nazi. I am sick of those people that put some stupid bug or bird or plant above what is best for people.
I am also sick of the idea of cap and trade and politicians using the environment as yet another reason to raise taxes on all of us.
I think we can be responsible to the environment and that is important, but it must be balanced and we shouldnt be held hostage because of the lunatic fringe of environmentalism whines the loudest. Plus the EPA is a freaking joke.
Seems to me if we are going to compete in a global economy, either every one has to follow the same rules or we need to take the gloves off and do whatever we have to do to out compete the competition.
