Anyone else angry at the environmentalists saying you need to do this and that, you need to drive a hybrid?

They want to force everyone into going “green”, they want you to spend half your paycheck on organic food, to ride bycicles everywhere, to hug a tree.

They turn food into fuel and are against new oil refinires, will they be the cause of our nation’s downfall?

first of all hybrid cars are probably not cost effective ,it probably won’t save much more gas than the best conventional car.the difference in pollution also negligible,it’s mostly a” feel good” im doing something…..food to fuel is a bad idea,because petroleum products are high heat yielding ,so can make your car-truck go farther,than the same amount of ethanol,about 3 times farther,so we use high heat gas-diesel to produce low heat ethanol ,do the math,………..we have started recycling plastics and paper and metal,to save landfill space ,but we only recycle the easy stuff ,we still dump any plastic higher than #2,most… Read more »

I will have to say I am not angry. I dont think you really understand the overpopulation crisis this world is experiencing. Someone driving a car polluting the air a little is one thing. A billion people driving cars polluting the air is a whole new story. Nations downfall? Your a truly a t.v. brainwashed fool. Incase you didn’t know there are safer alternatives to everything and they don’t require you to spend half your paycheck. And another thing if you forgot our nation has been on a downfall since the 70’s. You think its a big coincidence that we… Read more »

It is far, far more likely that our own greed, shortsightedness and monumental arrogance will be our downfall.

Yes, oh yes they will. The wacko branch of this group are the ones who are destroying our ability to be a self sufficient nation by not allowing drilling to save a frigging butterfly. By turning food into fuel, they have caused an incredible shortfall in our food source so our prices go up and the shortages are staggering. They just don’t get that every thing they want to take away has a consequence and a huge chain reaction that inevitably puts us all in jeopardy.

I, for one, don’t much believe in the global warming myth. Hello – much of mid-America was under glaciers – it’s ALWAYS been warming! I would like to see us dig in Alaska for oil, and all the places we’ve been told we can’t, because the wildlife might get upset. While I do believe we should be conscientious about our usage of products, I don’t think the environmentalists have the answers.

You, along with every other human is responsible for our planet. It would also be nice if you could care about your own well-being and that of others. The downfall of this nation, in the long run will be mass pollution, global warming and illnesses born from pointless chemicals.

Yes, our arrogance is and will be our downfall. Watch the documentary called “What killed the electric car”. It was on the movie channels a few months back. It amazes me that they had fully functional electric only vehicles that folks in California were leasing. California did have a mandate to lower their emissions by like 2005. So the electric car was doing great for the owners in California. Somehow or another the mandate for lower emissions changed as politics and big oil got involved. They actually destroyed these electric cars. So now they want us to buy an automoble… Read more »

No, I don’t mind it at all because if you start looking into it, you’ll see they are right. They aren’t “forcing” anything, but don’t you think it’s better to be “forced” into being green than to be dead from polution, or for people to be starving from lack of taking care of the planet? This isn’t a game we’re playing. It’s not IF. Science is pointing in one direction and if we want to live, we need to change – change now and work together to improve things or wait too long and be dead. Which is better?
