Some good things came from global warming. For instance, more people are far more conscience of their impact on nature, and at least try to act
better. Nothing wrong with respecting mother nature.
But for the most part it's a crack pot Progressive agenda to make money. Nothing more, nothing less. If it saves energy it often cost 40% more,
even though it sometimes cost less to produce. They literally turn being "green" into a luxury. And many "green" items are not "green" at
all.. like hybrid cars, who's batteries cause ecological harm from their production. And many store bought "green" items are made in china where
the chemical run off is dumped into rivers and the ocean.
Proof, imo, that liberals are idiots.
The new taxes on "non-green" items have generated billions for governments, and added premiums for "green" items has generated billions for
corporations. And regulation on "non green" resources and production have cost tens of thousands of jobs.
Again, nothing wrong with respecting nature.. we should work hard to clean our cities, not dump in rivers, keep our beaches pristine, use less energy,
use fast growing woods like bamboo and recycle more.
But we should NEVER have to pay a premium to save our planet. And any plan to help our ecological state should NEVER generate a government profit.
I'm just glad dems no longer control the government, I thought for sure they'd enact carbon trading (to save the world of course, making trillions
in the process). Its astonishing the sucess progressives had on corporatizing being green.
