    Who's the artist?
    Cristo was the artist and it did not have the environmental impact that coal mining does.

    You mean the enviroment liked it or at least did not mind?

    I am not even talking about the impact on human peace of mind and psychological health.

    Cristo wan't all that impressive and he never had the economic impact coal mining does.

    And "who's the artist" refers to the men who carved the mountains, not the Wrapper Dude.

    Question; what do our great grandchildren do when they corrode? Sometimes we have to quit kicking the can down the road.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I’m not apposed to nuclear fuel, what I’m apposed to is when they cut funding on how they can get the 1% plutonium out of it, which sells for around $1000/kg.


    It would also be nice if we could have some viable research on how to make something that has a half-life of 6,500,000 years give or take a few million, harmless.

    Well, hell, ya'll don't want to drill, ya'll don't want to mine, ya'll don't want to harvest timber. What the hell are we supposed to do? Sit in the dark, wrapped with a blanket, reading Marx by candlelight? I guess putting people back to work just isn't worth it to come folks. You got your's and **** everyone else, right?

    What about the places where strip mines are being operated and there aren't any mountains? Shut those down, too.
