      If you’re going to pass laws to protect the environment, they should be as broad as possible. But if we stopped subsidizing specific “green” technologies, where would the politicians turn for their campaign money?

    I used to be an environmentalist until I discovered that most of the environmental crisises were money-makers for the government.

      I am a total believer in recycling and do it every chance I get. Having lived on a farm I full well know the value of respecting the earth since it feeds and shelters us.

      As far as what I drive impacting the planet by it emissions?

        Yes, that’s called good stewardship. I was talking about my activism where I told everyone that they were evil for this thing or that. Luckily, I woke up before Al Gore got to me with his Inconvenient Truth…lol.
