The government doesn't need global warming, they've done very nicely out of the "war on terror". And what is this straw man about giving governments more power? They don't need more power, they need to divert some of the current massive subsidies away from the oil industry into renewables. Not rocket science. They need to stop being controlled by a certain sector of the economy. How does that give them more power over the average person than they have already acquired by (in the case of the USA) rewriting the constitution to disallow free speech, and to allow unlimited surveillance? -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
