It costs me $75 to renew my license. Thus, driving is 'all about the money' and should be banned. According to some dimwits (whose initials are FF).

I would suggest bicycles, except the store charges money for them. I guess I have to give up transportation of all sorts. Now, how do I avoid eating..

It is certainly true that he 'shows his true colors' with his obsession over money. The world can go hang, people can starve, but his OWN profits must depend somehow on fossil fuels.

The FACTS (i.e. the science) doesn't profit him so he denies it. There is obviously no real criticism of the science except that it isn't making HIM fat and happy.

He does have a point that business will look to the ways they can profit by supplying the necessary changes. But then, that is what business does. It makes money by supplying what is needed.

Nothing inherently wrong about that.
