It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.
Strawman. I don't think anyone including the conservatives on this board think that taking care of the planet is a 'bad idea'. If they have said so please show it to us.
On the larger question, it is about control of the population that drives 'global warming' hoax, and has little to do with the planet one way or the other.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
Steady unrelenting opposition to domestic energy exploitation, making the US criminally dependent on terrorist and socialist nations for it's energy resources, a clear and present danger to American liberty.
Determined opposition to illegal alien exclusion and repatriation, thereby encouraging increased harm to sensitive border region ecosystems.
Recycling is still a joke because because some recycled crap still ends up in land fills. There are protest against using trash to generate power but it is being done in Japan and has been for years and is environmentally safe.
The major lip service I'm talking about comes in the form of the current protests against Solar and Wind energy generation. Solar could endanger some unknown lizard or other BS argument. They protest Wind power because it endangers birds. I can see a giant wind field from my home here near Palm Springs CA. and I assure you having lived in Dallas, TX. Portland, OR. and all over CA. there are more birds here than any place I have ever seen in my life. I can hear them singing every day.
They also protest wind because they don't look nice. B.S.
They are fighting the very things they were crying for just a few years ago, because they are real solutions. They protest some electric cars because the batteries are a danger.
I have been an environmentalist all my life but I wouldn't walk across the street to support any of the usual groups because they lie and dupe their followers.
I learned from my Dad when I was a kid and used to go camping and before my Dad would do anything to set up camp he'd clean the area and we'd leave it better than we found it.
I have always felt it made sense. Let's look at one protest. I choose ELF. they want cleaner air so they protest excessive use of fuel that pollutes the air how? By burning Hummers. It is impossible to justify this dumb ass action because why? Because in just a few minutes they put more pollutants in to the air in the form of toxic smoke that the Hummers would have produced in 20 years of operation. Add to that pollution the the fuel burned by all of the emergency vehicles that have to respond.
Environmental nuts have shut down forests to logging knock thousands out of work driving up the cost of lumber, and increasing the trade deficit because we now import more lumber than ever. Truth is modern logging is sound and the companies replant far more than they cut. Parts of the U.S. have more forests than there were when the Pilgrims landed. That goes for game too. Places in this country face major problems because there are too many Deer and Elk, more than ever before.
Some of the best conservationist are hunters lie the Duck hunters who do more to sustain numbers than any other group, Government or private.
The global warming HOAX is about money, profit, and in Government it's about control.
One of the really stupidest things I have ever heard is the argument by Liberals that we shouldn't drill for oil because it would take 7 to 10 years to have an effect. Well answer me this. How long will it take for new wells to help if we never drill them. This is a typical type of unsound argument used by environmentalists and their supporters, and shows the clear lack of reason, sense, and logic. It's all the same.

Conservatives are absolutely for taking care of the planet. In fact, we are typically among the most conscious about picking up after ourselves.
We just don't build a political party around it, and lie and exagerrate environmental "crisis" to gain votes for other hidden agendas.
How much gas does the newly expanded government fleet burn? Using ethonal could solve that problem. Oh, damn, it takes three gallons of water to make one gallon of ethonal and ethonal fueld cars get half the gas mileage of gasoline fueld cars. Dammit all to hell!!!
Sometimes I think the treehuggers do more harm than good.
