    This protest is just one example of why you are wrong. I think in principle most Americans and others around the world favor cutting Co2 emissions, its a matter of mobilization. We see with the US that its efforts to reduce emissions have been costly and ineffective thusfar, what makes you think that new government regulation will work any better?

    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]
    If five thousand people show up for a Tea Party rally, it's National News on every network! But one wonders if Fox News even happened to take notice that 300K people marched about climate change....

    All of us must make those sacrifices together. How are Govt. employees going to wean us off coal fired electricity? That must be done if we are to be serious at all. coal is the dirtiest fossil fuel in more ways than just Co2 production. Tar sands are a close second.

    In general, conservatives groups have generally been good about cleaning up after themselves. How often do you hear of a Tea Party rally where the place that it occurred was left trashed afterward?

    Wrong-wing rallies have tended to be very much otherwise, and this is a typical example. In this particular case, it is unusually ironic and hypocritical. Supposedly, they were rallying to express concern about the environment, and while doing so, they trashed the environment in which they were rallying.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Maybe this would be better news if liberal organizations didn't use hundreds of buses to bring people in.

    Good point.

    Why do people think those who don't ascribe to liberal views, all watch Fox?

    Yeah, conservative organizations never, EVER did that, did they? And btw, have you got some proof that there was some large, coordinated effort to bus people in? Or is it simply beyond the possibility that in a city of 8 million people - where most people use public transportation anyway - that 300K of them just might have used public transportation to get there?

    No, we don't. In reality those who talk most loudly about the need are the last to sacrifice. because doncha know they just have to use those petro fuels and dollars to spread their message. Make ALL govt employees walk the talk, senators and congressmen included. If they are made to sacrifice first, I'll guarantee we'd see a sea change in pace and transition most riki tik.

    Yeah, because there's almost double that who are unemployed in the city itself and they have plenty of time on their hands.
