    See how that works?
    What's the point of your strawman argument?

    tererun, as usual, hit the nail on the head with her post. The typically older people who have no problem with our trashing the environment--and it is not all of them, but many of them--should expect the same disrespect in return. Quid pro quo.
    No one is saying that the environment should be, "trashed". However, our economy and culture shouldn't be trashed based on fake science. Turning The United States into a third world country isn't going to help the environment.

    Then why doesn't the government team up with private industries and help the, "cleaner option", become more affordable?

    Take the money that is being wasted on useless green energy projects and the billions spent funding global warming witch doctors and spend it on working with private industries to find a solution.

    Or, would that mean that the private sector might be more successful, obviously making too much sense?

    What I see is hugely uninformed ranting. The green agenda is one of bull****. It has no record of specific goals relating to "green", much less having accomplished such. Meanwhile, the agendas of the others that you note, such as Chistianity, Liberty, and Big Government, have quite a consistent track record.

    "Green" however, has only a recent history of hyper-alarmism and foolishness. It is the new stupid.

    Now I'm not sure. Was everything after the first sentence of your post a joke?

    Hugely serious. The joke is such as Al Gore, man-made global warming, and carbon credits. Although Fat Albert got rich off selling stupidity to the dumb masses.

    If the extent of ones criticism of the environmental movement is Al Gore, I'd consider that uninformed ranting.

    And I'll consider the inability to read, and to substitute strawmen, as a sign of ingrained stupidity and ignorance.

    Ok, so you have no actual rebuttal so you want to derail into the discussion on obvious republican racism. Point noted, and you can have fun on that road.
