    The only constant is change. The trick for politicians and academics is to package that certainty up in a captivating package and sell it to the public as something else for power and profit.

If you and your whole family were sickened like my family, you would be singing a different tune. I know first hand the cost of mega corporations dumping toxins into the earth. I hope you never have to find out the hard way, the hard way sucks pretty bad. But in all honesty if you keep promoting it one day it could end up on your doorstep.
    Well then, let's clean it up! No company should be allowed to make anyone sick, and when it happens, we should stand against it. But you promote wind farms and they definitely make people sick and kill animals. And you oppose clean nuclear energy - and, yes, nuclear was dirty in the past - but it's much safer now and affordable so the poor can afford to heat and cool their homes.

    I don't want anyone to be sick and I don't want companies polluting, but we need a good game plan in order to make it better for everyone in the world. I was just saying the 6th Mass Extinction is a natural event that's been going on for 12,000 years and humans aren't doing it. I think it is sad that we're losing some of our animals, but Mother Nature obviously has her own plans. Scientists and wildlife specialists try to stop extinctions, and sometimes they're successful, but not usually.
    I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.

    What JAP doesn't tell you is what happened to her was done under the control of the government not private industry.

    Oh....well....that's interesting. And, a good reason to keep government's fingers out!
