So you're saying we should poison our land, water, and air just so that your corporate overlords can make a quick buck? Turn a blind eye to obvious proven science to appease your free market demigod? Just. Wow!<quoted text>
Correct. China is in bad shape because of pollution. It's one of the reasons you and I buy Chinese products; because they are cheaper due to no environmental regulation.
Here in the US, we had environmental regulations on industry. But they kept getting more regulated, more regulated, and more regulated to the point industry moved to a country with absolutely no regulations.
So what was accomplished here? Industry moved from a country with major regulations to a country with few if any regulations. And you think you've helped in this so-called fight against global warming? Are these industries not polluting much more than when they were here?
It reminds me of what Limbaugh frequently says "Liberalism is not about accomplishments, liberalism is about intent. That's how they measure success."
I see it in my industry all the time. Because new tractors are loaded with thousands of dollars of pollution crap, not to mention DEF fluid that all newer trucks must run on, companies are opting to keep their old polluting rigs on the road and keep rebuilding the engines. They don't want to deal with all these environmental costs. When that gets to unaffordable, they will sell those old truck to Mexicans who will drive them here.
Nice work environmentalists. You're doing a good job. LOL!
For someone who claims to hate communism, you seem all too eager to emulate them when it suits your cause or benefits your trivial job, comrade trucker buddy...
