    Poverty will do that for you. That's why all of the political efforts to reduce our carbon footprint involve increasing poverty.

    An oversimplication at best. An inaccurate conclusion as well. Poverty may be a factor, but lifestyle is defined by the word "style." I repeat that the embargo by the USA against Cuba for over four decades has caused Cuba great distress. Just because they are anti big Corporate. They're all poor, but are probably unaware of that. Perhaps that is equality.

    Another Castro brothers regime great success story. The import of coffee by the regime is equivalent to the import of sugar, an unthinkable thing to happen 51 years ago. The destruction of the island economy, is not cause by the embargo, is due to the Castro brothers dictatorship, corruption and mismanagement.

    And here I thought for sure this story was going to be that the Cubans found that the coffee was much better if you use clean water.

    Oh that's right that was Mexico.
