Accusations are a CoIntelPro technique SD and I do NOT appreciate it. Who said what first?
One more thing, my anger, threads and posts, do you assume that this is helping the oil companies agenda?
I put these comments together as they address the same thing.
Please understand what I was trying to convey to you ... I NEVER said you were working for them or that you were doing it intentionally. Yes, it
seems reasonable to me to believe that debunking solely mmgw without delving deeper into the conspiracy and the people/interests at play does help the
oil companies, it also helps political interest groups, and a plethora of other elements. BUT, that's the game ... to take well meaning and
passionate people like yourself and exploiting that passion to further their own agenda. This is nothing new, it happens in politics, religion,
Endisnighe, surely even you must have questioned the timing of this email leak, no?
Now to address what you said above about the problem being compounded as opposed to interchangeable ... perhaps this is where you and I misunderstand
Let's say I have one light bulb right, and I have a choice as to how to power it, and for the moment let's say the price is the same whether the
power comes from a coal plant, a nuclear plant, a windmill, or a solar panel. Since I'm getting taxed on all of them, personally I would rather take
it from the sun or the wind. Surely one doesn't have to be a hippie environmentalist to concede this right?
So I'm not compounding the problem, it really is an either or choice as to how I am lighting the bulb.
Now I hear you say ... "yes but green energy is more expensive both to generate and in taxes" ... ok I concede this, as mentioned above this is
partly the reason I don't support the cap and trade system. But I don't support the present system either. So to me the change has to be in the
bigger system itself rather than either or choices within it. Does that make sense?
Now no one has lobbies for that, there's less money in that in the ptb ... yet if we want to keep our home and ourselves clean and still enjoy the
lifestyles we are so used to, that is imho the only way forward. And it has simply nothing to do with global warming. And that is precisely imo why
we are being distracted and pitted against each other with this subject ... just so no one has the presence of mind to say, hey wait a minute, this
game is rigged and there's a better way.
