What's this dude's point? Bottles can become trash? OK, replace all plastic water bottles with biodegradable ones--it does nothing about that problem.

Landfills? So? They're hills covered with dirt. What's the problem there? The plastic going to rise up out of it and kill us all?

Who needs 400 words to say overpaying for water is stupid? Thanks, Mr. Real Letter Writer of Genius. You've really come up with no solutions to things that aren't even problems. When there are people starving, suffering, and dying unnecessarily, we need to crowd out the things that matter with a diatribe against BOTTLED WATER? Please, sir, re-evaluate your priorities.

I say, nothing is going to happen. What do YOU say?

Wrong twice, genius. What's the matter, do you fail to understand that some people don't follow party platforms like sheep?

No matter how you look at it global warming is a politacal tool. How can you ever justify that when for the last ten years we have experienced global cooling. Look at the stats. We now justify it by saying part of the warming is global cooling????? In the 70's it was the coming ice age. This is nothing more than a democratic tactic that is of the same model they have used for years. The dems need a crisis. Like Rham Emanuel said "we can't let a good crisis go to waste" . They fabricate a crisis so that they can pass legislative initiates that they would otherwise never obtain. Before you just beleive everything that you have been fed through the government and the mainstream media. Take a look at both sides. Thousands of scientists are now saying that global warming is a hoax, including many that were listed in Gore's inconvenient truth. The average citizen has paid dearly in inc reased costs and with cap and trade on the horizon it will be much worse. Further global warming is a major player in the new "smart grid" Research the smart grid. It is nothing short of massive governmental intrusion and control which will allow the government to control how much power you use and what appliances you use and when and if?

Ooooo-K. A bit behind on your meds, buddy? Or do you just need your tin foil hat adjusted?

Anybody who uses the term "mainstream media" to describe any outlet that is neither Fox News, an Ann Coulter column, or Limbaugh's show, is already at -1 credibility. Add that to a bunch of baloney spouted as supposed fact and then ladle out some conspiracy theory and you've got a certifiable wackjob.

Listen, "hot"--go find some friends and start a Klan chapter in your basement or something. Just stop trying to pretend you're any smarter than a fifth grader, OK?

I guess all those disappearing glaciers, something that's never, ever, happened before, are part of the governments plan too.

Global warming a conspiracy. That's a laugh.

You see, that's why the republicans are denying that global warming exists. They're using all the glacier melt to make a gazillion bottles of spring water to sell to the democratic soccer moms.
The republicans don't mind a crisis as long as they can profit from it like they did in the two Gulf wars.
