Any project which benefits the wealthy at the expense of the environment is an obscenity; any project which benefits the wealthy at the expense of the environment and the people is genocide. And the politicians who let them do it?,they don't care about anything except votes today; tomorrow their children won't have a planet to live on.

So...the socio-environmentalist from NZ has spoken. Pray tell, you do have a solution for electrical needs in countries other than the island you live on, right? Just answer the question. Provide a solution. A VIABLE solution, not a bunch of solar panels (aid to warming) and wind-turbines (that kills the birds). Lemme guess, hobbits that use manual labor to walk around in circles to aid a turbine to supply electrical needs in a tropical climate. Oh wait, I forsee your reply: Exploitation of humans. NZ=Bunch of Gripes, No Solutions (even for their own country) and willing to spout socialist opinion at any opportunity. Tell me, are you "indigenous" to NZ, or are you still exploiting the native population and their extinction? Hmmm?

Tell me when this thread is updated:
