Hmmmm, like those trying to get Ethanol in the mainstream will make allot of
Like those trying to spread (pun intended) the use of "Cow power" and
methane gas will make allot of money?

Yes, because in Alan's eyes, there should be *no* government, because all
that regulation sure has kept pollution in check.
Who needs regulation?
We're doing just fine without it!
Meanwhile China begins regulations that put us to shame.
Sorry, a bit too communist for your anarchist tendencies?

So, fuck it.
Not my problem.
I'm not going to change.
Gonna.....keep on..........Keepin' on.
We'll ignore the historical correlations of rise in atmospheric carbon and
rise in climate temperatures.
We'll ignore the *VIOLENT* spike in atmospheric carbon in the last 30 years,
and......right on cue.....here comes the temps.
Why is it ok for this capitalist society to destroy the environment to make
money, but it's somehow unethical to make money by *saving* the environment?
Isn't that a bit hypocritical?
Who ever the genius is that invents the car that gets 1,000 MPG will become
rich beyond his wildest dreams.
Who ever the genius is that will invent a way to produce electricity, in
large enough quantities without needing fossil fuels, will be come rich,
And, I'll personally thank them for it.
Heaven forbid that Al developed a way to get money into the hands of those
potential geniuses that will fight what is an undisputable shift in climate,
and resulting historic melting of ice caps at speeds not even feared in
scientists worst nightmares.
And, heaven forbid that he would want the US government to run such an
operation and return investment gains to the....US Government for use in
things like....oh, I don't know....better education, healthcare ( ! ), and a
couple other hundred things we need that the current administration either
dismantled or won't bother to consider.
Look out Florida.
You're a goner.
