If Alberto wants to move to Mars then fine, he is no longer invested in the Earth's environment. But until then he is, and (like the fossil fuel industry) is apparently unwilling to pay the full price of living here. The oil industry wants a free lunch with no comeback from the "hidden" costs of their wealth-generation (now becoming less and less hidden) - they act as though they have no idea of what economics actually means, as though that they don't realise the price you don't pay now is accumulating somewhere else and has to be paid in the end. (Possibly, if they continue to ignore reality for long enough, with our children's lives.)
Also, to claim that the IPCC etc can't be trusted because it's all just "scientists looking after themselves" while believing that the propaganda from the oil industry ISN'T ... is (to put it kindly) disingenuous. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
