When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore.

how does cheap labor seduce anyone to work, btw??
Cheap labor does not seduce, companies seduce illegals by hireing them because they get cheap labor and can force them to work in conditions that are not healthy or safe. If companies didn't knowingly hire them they wouldn't be here. The illegals are here because they are wanted.

Next you'll be telling us that Al Gore has negative carbon footprint.
LOL
Some consioderations......

The former vice-president maintained that comparing raw energy-usage figures is misleading and that he leads what he advocates, a "carbon-neutral lifestyle," by purchasing energy from renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and methane gas to balance out the carbon emissions produced in generating the electricity his home uses:
Kalee Kreider, a spokesperson for the Gores, pointed out that both Al and Tipper Gore work out of their home and she argued that "the bottom line is that every family has a different carbon footprint. And what Vice President Gore has asked is for families to calculate that footprint and take steps to reduce and offset it."

A carbon footprint is a calculation of the CO2 fossil fuel emissions each person is responsible for, either directly because of his or her transportation and energy consumption or indirectly because of the manufacture and eventual breakdown of products he or she uses.

The vice president has done that, Kreider argues, and the family tries to offset that carbon footprint by purchasing their power through the local Green Power Switch program ó electricity generated through renewable resources such as solar, wind, and methane gas, which create less waste and pollution. "In addition, they are in the midst of installing solar panels on their home, which will enable them to use less power," Kreider added. "They also use compact fluorescent bulbs and other energy efficiency measures and then they purchase offsets for their carbon emissions to bring their carbon footprint down to zero."
Also, by the end of 2007 the Gores completed renovations that made their home much more energy-efficient:
Al Gore, who was criticized for high electric bills at his Tennessee mansion, has completed a host of improvements to make the home more energy efficient, and a building-industry group has praised the house as one of the nation's most environmentally friendly.

The former vice president has installed solar panels, a rainwater-collection system and geothermal heating. He also replaced all incandescent lights with compact fluorescent or light-emitting diode bulbs.

"Short of tearing it down and staring anew, I don't know how it could have been rated any higher," said Kim Shinn of the U.S. Green Building Council, which gave the house its second-highest rating for sustainable design.

Gore's improvements cut the home's summer electrical consumption by 11 percent compared with a year ago, according to utility records reviewed by The Associated Press. Most Nashville homes used 20 percent to 30 percent more electricity during the same period because of a record heat wave.

SO while his footprint is not negative he has substantially reduced and is continuing to reduce his footprint. It has been substantially reduced, do you understand that? If we all would reduce our footprint by the same percentage it would be significant. He is practicing what he preaches.

Place your hate somewhere more significant.

those evil entrepreneurs and capitalists....they're almost as bad as those who take subsidies from the government for their "green" ideas at the taxpayers expense.

i think the people who hire illegals are sort of like the illegals who come here to work....and sort of like the people who try to start unproven fields of energy. they all have their self interest at heart?

LOL, I suppose I am one of the 4 out of 5 since I am on SS. I do volunteer work through a faith based group and see poverty first hand. Yes there are parasites, but that is not relegated to the poorest, it is found in ALL levels. However, there are folks who have through no fault of their own, except possibly being born in the wrong place, have fallen through the cracks. To ignore the plight of these along with their children is selfish and anti-Christian. How do those who disparage the poor pretend to be Christian?
The system is disparaged, being a christian doesn't require you to support the lazy, the indolent, the swindlers, we have too many of those and the system encourages them. EVERYTHING in the bloated federal budget needs to be cut.

What's your exact mechanism for what you want the government to do? If a hispanic shows up to mow my lawn, what should I do? Demand his "papers"? At Burger King? the car wash? Call la migra? Democrat/liberal policies are what enables them to stay with impunity.

As for Al Gore, you still can grasp that concept of being green and a capitalist at the same time. It's so foreign to you, its like oil and water. Once again, if Al Gore can afford to BUY his negative footprint, which he DOES, then all power to him. I know it's hard to swallow, he just could be buying some of yours to do it, but that's life in the capitalist system.
>>Democrats are affronted that Republicans have made ObamaCare a focus of this fallís fiscal fights. They should get used to it.

Even if Democrats deflect efforts to defund or delay the law in coming weeks, the fight will go on. Republican opposition is for the long haul, and it should be.

Even as the exchanges for individuals to purchase insurance get up and running, Oba≠ma≠Care is still in play. It has a legitimacy problem. It had one before it passed, when it was kept afloat through gross special deals, and it has one still, when it is manifestly failing to live up to the presidentís salesmanship on its behalf. Thereís a reason that usually we donít pass major social changes lacking popular support on party-line votes ó it is a formula for conflict rather than consensus.

Having done the deed, Democrats now expect Republicans to salute smartly, accept ďthe law of the landĒ and suggest minor improvements that Democrats will, in their wisdom, decide whether or not to adopt.

In other words, they recommend the acquiescence of surrender.

If this were a consistent principle rather than opportunistic advice, Democrats would have been content to leave ďdonít ask, donít tellĒ in place and never would have agitated to repeal the Bush tax cuts, out of deference to duly constituted policy and law.

PEDRO DE MACORIS, Dominican Republic - With no hope of finding work in his native Haiti, like many before him and since, Lucner Pierre migrated in 1978 to look for a job in the Dominican Republic's sugar industry.

Now 59, he has for most of the past 35 years manually cut sugar cane with a machete, dangerous field work which damaged his sight and turned his skin the creased texture of animal hide. He receives only minimal medical care and lives in company housing, sharing a bug-infested room with seven other men during harvest season, earning in 12 hours, he said, "just enough to eat."

"I can't send money home," Pierre said. "I can't go home."

Situations similar to Pierre's are a reason that a U.S. government report released last week validates public submissions made by human rights activists about deplorable living and working conditions for undocumented Haitian migrant workers and other poor laborers in the Dominican Republic's sugar cane fields.

The U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Trade and Labor Affairs "found evidence of apparent and potential violations" of labor law and workers' rights called for in the free trade agreement signed in 2004 by the United States and the Dominican Republic. The labor department also announced last Friday the commitment of another $10 million over the next four years, bringing the amount invested since 1998 to $16 million, to reduce child labor, expand labor rights and improve working conditions.

"Working together with the Dominican government, we look forward to making a real difference in these workers' lives," U.S. Labor Secretary Thomas Perez said in the report.

Among violations cited: poor working conditions related to minimum wage; 12-hour work days; seven-day work weeks; and occupational safety and health concerns such as the lack of potable water, absence of a minimum work age and indications of forced labor, including unlawful overtime performed under threat of deportation.

The labor department, which published the report on its website last week, responded to complaints first brought in December 2011 by Catholic priest and worker advocate Christopher Hartley. His parish included dozens of cane field villages, known as bateyes, where Hartley served for nine years as a church pastor before his 2006 removal by the local bishop.

"Fair trade, the fight against modern-day slavery and standing up for our commitments regarding fundamental human rights and freedoms are all issues of deep concern to the American public," Hartley wrote in an email from Ethiopia, where he has worked since 2007.

The United States imports about 220,000 tons of sugar annually from the Dominican Republic, a relatively small amount compared to other countries and the single-nation high of 1.9 million tons imported in 2012 from Mexico, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Yet the Dominican Republic's export quota to the United States is greater than the five other nations ‚?? Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua ‚?? that are part of the Dominican Republic-Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR).

The Dominican government, prior to publication of the labor department's report, responded to specific questions about Hartley's submissions by calling them "allegations that are far removed from the actual status of workers in the agriculture sector and the protections afforded their rights.‚?¶ The unsubstantiated allegations presented by Father Hartley are the unfortunate consequence of a personal agenda."

Officials at the Dominican Republic's embassy in Washington, D.C., did not respond to repeated requests for comment after the report's release. However, a leading U.S. importer of sugar did respond Thursday to the report's findings.

"Our company is committed to ethical sourcing, and we are spending time reviewing the Department of Labor's findings concerning the Dominican Republic," Brian O'Malley, president and chief executive of Domino Foods, Inc., said Thursday in a statement released by the Florida-based company.

Domino Foods is part of ASR Group, the world's largest sugar refining company, which imports sugar from many countries, including the Dominican Republic. Domino Foods is the sales and marketing company that sells sugar in the United States under the brand names Domino, C&H and Florida Crystals.

O'Malley said it is the company's understanding that the report does not claim violations by the Dominican Republic of labor regulations in the CAFTA-DR.

"Working conditions and workers' safety are of paramount importance to us," he said, "so we are encouraged by the fact that although the Dominican sugar industry disputes the report's finding, it has said it will consult with its organized labor unions and the Dominican government to develop an effective response to any genuine issues reflected in the report, such as assuring that all wages, hours and benefits are accurately documented for follow-up analysis by the U.S. government."

Still, said Hartley ‚?? who remains widely vilified in the Dominican Republic ‚?? the labor department report is proof of migrant worker exploitation there and should serve as a reminder to Americans that the workers' plight is not a distant phenomenon.

"I think most Americans would be ashamed to know at what price they put sugar in their coffee every morning," he said. Sugar workers "are real people, real children, with hopes and dreams of a better future and of a dignified existence."

The land of opportunity?

About 460,000 expatriated Haitians live in the Dominican Republic, according to the 2013 Dominican National Survey of Immigrants, released in July.

About half of Haitians in the Dominican Republic live largely in isolation in bateyes. They are clumps of company housing or free-standing huts in the middle of cane fields, most often lacking adequate sanitation, electricity, potable water, schools and medical care. Homes surround a crude town square in which the only businesses are lottery booths and privately owned corner stores ‚?? known as colmados ‚?? stocked with liquor and food stuffs such as rice, at which workers and their families run up mounting debts, according to the new Labor Department report.

The healthiest and strongest workers can cut 3 to 4 tonnallata ‚?? about 2,200 pounds each ‚?? in a 12-hour shift, usually 4 a.m. to 4 p.m. A ticketer labels the load. A cutter can earn 120 pesos per tonnallata, currently about $2.82 U.S. So in 12 hours of hard labor, the most productive worker will earn between $11 and $12, advocates say.

Even this process, worker advocates say, has been changed to benefit sugar companies and take from workers. Sugar fields are dotted with dozens of abandoned and rusting weigh stations, where wagons filled with cut cane would be hauled and the cane weighed at the end of the day. Now cane is weighed privately -- out of sight of the worker who cut it -- and first allowed to dry overnight, which makes the cane lighter and less costly.

"What is clear is that the worker has no guarantee that he will be paid fully for his work," said Maria Victoria Mendez Castro, an attorney in San Pedro de Macoris and associate of Hartley's.

Yet compared to Haiti, where adult unemployment estimates range from 67 percent to 75 percent, something is better than nothing.

Johnny Young, 28, left Haiti four years ago. On a mid-July day he cut stalks and loaded them onto a wagon with Pierre Johnson, a man born of Haitian parents in the Dominican Republic. He has worked since he was 17.

"I am sorry I came. I am sorry I left my country," Young said. "I left looking for work and a life. I found my death."

Johnson is among the estimated 2.5 million of the 8.9 million people living in the Dominican Republic who do not have a birth certificate. Those without one are either Haitian by birth or the second- or third-generation children of at least one Haitian parent.

"I would like to learn to drive a truck some day," said Johnson, 24, who has not attended school and cannot read or write. "I don't have any paper.'

In the Dominican Republic, the prized paper is the cedula, the state ID card that essentially is a driver's license that also allows people go to school, register their children for school and get medical care and insurance.

"I am not free on the streets, I can not go to school and can not work, I can not marry legally or travel," said Isidro Belique, 24, who lives on the batey Canutillo near the town of Quisqueya. "Inside my own country, I cannot move. Civilly, I am dead."

Worker advocates focus on pension, documents

Native-born Haitians and their children are at the bottom of a racial caste system in the Dominican Republic, where the standard citizen is considered a mulatto. Dislike and distrust between Haitians and Dominicans run deep in these former French and Spanish colonies on the shared island of Hispaniola.

The Dominican government defends its policy not to grant rights to children of Haitian parents born on its soil, children who are nonetheless "fully entitled to Haitian citizenship and as such ought not to be considered stateless," a government spokesman said on condition of anonymity. Half of children born in Dominican hospitals in border regions are to Haitian mothers and are a major reason that 15 percent of the Dominican national health budget goes to treating the migrant population, the government says.

Yet the Dominican and Haitian governments are working together with religious organizations to help children born of a Haitian parent in the Dominican Republic receive a Haitian birth certificate and passport. The Scalabrinian Association, a Catholic order dedicated to helping migrants and refugees, receives money from the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees and the European Union to work with illiterate workers to fill out forms that are processed by the Haitian consular office. In 2012, 2,000 Haitians received documentation, a number that could reach 5,000 this year, said Idalina Bordignon, a Brazilian nun and the the group's director in the Dominican Republic.

Cane cutters are most concerned with money ‚?? what they earn and the government pension they are required to pay into at a rate of 2 percent of their earnings. Most often, sugar companies do not contribute their 7 percent portion of the pension for sugar workers, said Bordignon and other worker advocates.

"On the bateyes, with these conditions, what do the workers have?" Bordignon said. "All the worker owns is his work."

Francisco Roberto Luisa, 69, left Haiti in 1964 and cut cane until 2006, when poor eyesight forced him to retire. The injury occurred when he reached down into the field and a sharp cane stalk pierced his left eye.

"I had headaches, and the company took me to a clinic," Luisa said. "They gave me glasses. It doesn't help."

He stopped working and moved off the batey into a small house with other retired or disabled workers. Luisa said he plants a small garden to feed himself.

"I am still waiting for my pension," he said.

Leon La Fontain, 79, receives a pension of 5000 Dominican pesos a month, or about $125 U.S. Born in the Dominican Republic to Haitian parents, he cut cane for 57 years. He supplements his income by cleaning and doing maintenance work in a medical clinic run by a foreign religious organization.

"I know I am very fortunate," Fontain said. "It was the intervention of God."

Labor department: Allow workers to organize

The U.S. Department of Labor, in its recent report, makes a dozen recommendations to the Dominican government to improve the enforcement of its labor laws and to better identify and address labor and human rights violations that affect sugar workers. The labor department will review the status of recommendations in six months and again one year from now.

Even with the victory that the labor department report represents, the majority of Haitians or Haitian-Dominicans living and working in the Dominican Republic don't have documents and won't live to see their pension.

Lucner Pierre, achingly thin except for his muscled arms and hands, says he doubts he will receive a pension or documents in his lifetime.

Inside his darkened room, he described how he uses his machete to cut sugar cane and his hoe to remove weeds. He stopped speaking when he heard children play outside in a poured concrete well. Then they ran off to kick a homemade soccer ball made of knotted rags across a dirt yard. Maybe life will be better for them.

Pierre walked to the wall opposite the window, where he pointed to count the bloody, smeared hash marks of bloated bed bugs he had killed with his fingers.

"During the day, you lose blood working in the sugar fields," said Pierre, his eyes and voice both flat and without emotion. "And at night, the bed bugs come and get what's left of you."
