    Welcome to California, where even Starbucks has "Cancer Warning Signs", because they sell things "proven to cause cancer".



    So let's just stop selling everything, because anything in excess can cause cancer.

    And yes, sugar has been shown to cause cancer.

    The owner forced them to come in?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    It's not the cleanest form of energy and causes a certain amount of global pollution, more so than gas. But till we invest in nuclear energy, we'll have to keep our dirty energy.

    Coal power still accounts for 42% of the electricity in the US.



    If you live out in the Western states you're far less likely to ever see a coal plant.

    N its not their right since they aren't being force to enter the shop. They don't like smoking they can go somewhere else.

    So we should sue gas stations then since gas and gas vapors can cause cancer.

    I liked your post because it made me laugh.

    And guess what state has the cities with the worst air pollution? Take a guess. I'll give you some hints, it's not in the coal belt. It's one of those yellow colored states from your img far west that starts with a "C". And it's not Colorado.

    California has all but one the cities with the record topping list in both short and long term air pollution. So I'd guess, California.
