yep i remember than commercial too all us old guys do
do i feel bad about pollution? yes
do i think that we do need alternative engergy sources? yes
with time that will change but then agian the more things change the more they stay the same. looking back throughout the history of men nothing has
changed natural resources will always be need as long as mankind lives on this planet that will never change.
imagine your lives right now if there was no oil, no coal, no nothing the synthetic materials that you are using right now our lives would be very
the world isnt perfect far from it no one will ever deny it but things can always be worse and the "treehugger" march has always been around the
names change such as "naturalist" and so forth what has changed in recent years is the information age- when things happen the world knows about it
in an instant.
but then agian like i said this is nothing different if youv'e read history than any yesterday of man maybe sad and it's true but never in the
entire world history has mankind ever had it so easy and many of you will argue that but look at the technology that you use in everyday life- you
dont hunt unless you count going to the grocery store and all those products and services are all made possible by oil and coal and other various

mankind has been around for a blink of an eye in the billions of years the earth has been around no one really knows how many civilizations have come

some people say there have been 5 ages of man i really should do more reasearch on them.

same) maybe mankind is truly unique and its an on going experirment til we get it right and move beyond the plantary restraints on this 3rd rock from
mans own arrogance is why there is a treehugger or naturalist movement mankind isnt nothing compared to mothernature. a supervolocano blowing like
yellowstone or the "killer" asteroid mythos hitting the earth and whiping us all out what good have all your actions or non actions have
the simple truth of it all is the earth was here before mankind and will be here long long after mankind has went the way of dodo bird.
i really wish people would put more engergy in to saving this country saving themselves than the planet because the only power any of us have is the
power to change our own lives for the better ( without the expense of giving government more power and destroying peoples lives and wealth)
