Agree! We Native Tribes always had trouble with euros & later them there transplanted euros....& after we fed them, to kick-start Thanksgiving!

Should have kicked the euros back to europe & never let them transplant.

Oh, so the ones giving me negative icons don't believe cancer data.

Compare the cancer data with the states that produce electricity by burning coal. Note, some of the states that are downwind of the coal burning plants.

Attention YouTheIdiot!!! It's people exactly like you who are plucking America up. You and your ilk are so stupid you elected a man who for years associated with and launched his political career from the home of bill ayers. Yepper bill ayers the communist terrorist with a rap sheet a mile long and the bozo who designed a bomb that blew up killing his girlfriend and two comrades. But it gets worse...That bomb was intended for US Soldiers stationed at Fort Dix NJ and attending a dance loaded with civilians.
No one in America who associated with bill ayers as did b. h. obama could obtain a high security clearance yet pathetic dumbbells made that fool POTUS & CINC...despicable.
Constitution hating people like the communist bill ayers are the roots of the lord marshal b. h. obama...And you? You're a useful idiot. GFY

Are you using 100% gasoline. Get off 10% ethanol. Use 100% gasoline. Your total use of 100% gasoline will drop......

Oh, sorry to say that. topix AGW deniers don't want to decrease fossil fuel usage.

Attention democRat doctor!!! If it's not cigarettes it's coal, it's food, it's guns, it's cars, it's nuclear, it's oil and on and on. Face the facts fruitcake, no matter how careful you are everyone dies from one thing or another and the only thing you can do is pass along the freedom that others before you gave their lives for. But in your ungrateful mind all you can do is pass along the so-called findings of those who have a problem with everything under the sun. Never mind the fact there is a process called clean coal that produces less emissions, etc. On the other hand if you really want clean air prove it and stick a catalytic converter up your butt.

Would you channel coal plant emissions and or tailpipe emissions into your house? Your implication is that it costs to much do away with pollutants; live with them?

I'll bet you don't even have a toliet in your home, why bother, you are going to die someday, why worry about feces ... Do you believe that an outbreak of Cholera and/or Dysentery every so often is good for the country?

Actually wind & solar power my computer. And on windy days like today, my electric meter is spinning backwards!

I'd have no problem if every coal fired powerplant went off line tomorrow.
