    How funny. I wonder if people would be less concerned about the price at the pump and more concerned about the quality of the water supply if they lived near those rivers. It's interesting how political perception can be so easily shaped by where you are geographically located in relation to an issue.

    Undergrads don't understand the difference between Marxism and Leninism and Mercantile Capitalism. That's why they call China a communist country.

    Perception is also affected by employment status.

    You really don't have a clue, do you? Where did you graduate from?
    In the 1949 revolution, China's economic system was officially made into a communist system. Since the wide-ranging reforms of the 1980s and afterwards, many scholars assert that China can be defined as one of the leading examples of state capitalism today
    . It's still a communist nation.
    The Communist Party of China (CPC), also known as the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), is the founding and ruling political party of the People's Republic of China
    It sure as hell isn't capitalism. Only a fool believes that. The communist government owns the energy sector.

    China is still a communist nation.

    Seems to me, that a responsible government, that isn't already hell bent on destroying the energy industry, to save it's agenda, would have figured something out. A responsible government, that is.

    Yawn, another liberal hack rant. Yeah, we're so sure it was only 55 cents and ended there. Sure, got another one?

    Destroying the energy industry? How were the profits of those energy companies the last few decades?
    You right wingnuts really do live in a world devoid of all reality.

    Exxon and Shell profits surge

    By Sylvia Pfeifer in London and Sheila McNulty in Houston

    Published: October 28 2010 19:18 | Last updated: October 29 2010 01:01

    Two of the world’s biggest oil companies reported sharply higher third-quarter results on Thursday, fuelled by stronger crude prices and better refining margins.

    ExxonMobil, the largest oil company in the US by market capitalisation, beat analyst expectations by posting a 55 per cent jump in third-quarter earnings to $7.4bn, compared with the same quarter in 2009.

    A government is no better than the people it represents. So let's hear your ideas.

    Why is it that when the government ignores it's already existing policies and fails to act- which ultimately leads to a tragedy or defilement of nature, etc, people cry "why wasn't something DONE!"

    But when an agency or branch actually ACTS against such activity everyone bitches about that!

    From a better article:
    After extensive scientific study, a major public hearing in West Virginia and review of more than 50,000 public comments, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today announced that it will use its authority under the Clean Water Act to halt the proposed disposal of mining waste in streams at the Mingo-Logan Coal Company’s Spruce No. 1 coal mine.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Because some right wing people view the government with as much irrational contempt as some left wing people view corporations.
