Perhaps we'll have to start building new prisons to house all of the heat and air guys, along with refrigeration repairmen....

That’s kind of like being convicted for murder because you shot a gun into the air.
I don’t suppose the prosecution presented any evidence of actual damage that they caused.

When you can’t lock ‘em up for their race.... you gotta find a new way to get scapegoats....
First they came for the refrigeration repairmen from NewZeland.... and I didn’t care, cause it wasn’t me... next they came for the pesticide Australian.... and I didn’t care because it wasn’t me.... next they came for the painter from England.... and I didn’t care

I can see into the future! Humans will walk around with two tanks strapped to their backs like skindivers. Each tank will be connected to a tube. One tube goes to a facemask, It sequesters the CO2 we exhale. The other tube goes up your butt. It sequesters methane. Everyone will be on a diet of Pinto Beans, and Pinto Bean milk.

New Zealand has a Ministry for Economic Development?
