    Unsupported, but I'll bet that is the consensus.

    Does consensus make fact, or not?

    Quite possible the biggest climate march in history was held today in NYC! But what they are protesting for (policy changes to offset climate change), is all a farce! [/FONT][/COLOR]

    So what are all the people demanding? The US is shutting down industries, putting people out of work, hurting the poor and most needy, and raising prices on goods and services, all to address Climate Change.

    Do they even know what they are marching for?

The US government can only do so much. If, on the other hand, people work together to force the hand of large corporations by using market forces, then this issue could be solved much more efficiently.
    The problem is that truly making a difference in Co2 emissions requires some sacrifices on the part of people and corporations. Sacrifice is not popular even if it is necessary. Traditional market forces will not work in reducing Co2 emissions, governments must step in.

    Why is the liberal response always "more government?"

    No, just another way of showing many people do not have better things to do in life. Probably why you see so few events like this from conservatives. I always have better things to do then go to some public rally.

    Well then, since government itself is a rather large consumer group, let them lead by example. Let them require all government employees and elected officials make those sacrifices.
