While there is much debate on the Global Warming issue and whether or not its man made, man aided, not happening at all, or irrelevant.... I would just like to remind everyone that mankind lives in a layer of gases under a mere 3 miles thick. Think about that. We look up at the sky and think.... big. We look at maps and think.... big. But man only lives at most a bit under sea level and under 3 miles in elevation. THAT, my friends, is a Thin Layer! A little too much or too little of oxygen and we die. Too much carbon dioxide and we die. Too much volcanic gases and we die. If people don't think that polluting industries need to be regulated, remember that 99% of the population lives within a 2 mile range and 33% lives within 400 feet of sea level. Our planet has a much larger atmosphere than this, but we don't live in it. This Thin Layer is crucial. Coal fired plants create mercury, which accumulates in the brain and causes neurological damage. Auto exhaust, industrial fumes and gases, volcanic gases, plastics outgassing, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulphide...... IT'S A THIN LAYER WE LIVE AND BREATHE IN! Getting rid of the EPA in order to create jobs? Deregulating industry to avoid pollution controls and reductions? Why can't we understand a need for a safe environment for our future? We Need Clean Air And Water For Life To Continue!

Because Republicans and Libertarians and Libertarian Republicans are convinced that when capitalism is left to it's own devices without any regulations, the right things will happen. But this is sheer dis info, and a complete falsehood, encouraged by those old forces of global banking and tyranny.
