We should celebrate *both* our energy bounty, and Mary Lou Retton (and not necessarily in that order).
That is true and it deserves repeating - again and again and again and again and again and...
San Francisco Greenies are/have been trying to stop the America’s Cup races this summer/fall in San Francisco bay.
They claim WATER POLLUTION & DIMINISHED AIR QUALITY if the races are held there.
These are large SAIL boats, IIRC. They use the wind to move. I cannot for any reason think of how using the wind in a sail would diminish the quality of the air....no matter how much I try.
They could only pollute the water if they dump waste into the water. Large ships carrying goods in containers, carrying cars made in Japan, etc, go into the docks at San Francisco every day. IMO, they would be far more likely to be polluting the water than a large SAILING ship.
The Greenies are doing their best to stop these races. So far, they have been blocked. But it will be a long summer until the event comes & goes.
Meanwhile, the OWS protesters have polluted every square inch of area they are covering in SF, Oakland, & other locations.
So then why does the Government stop polluting the air with Chem-trails?
Why does the government allow for the Haarp project to hurt the Van Allen Belt?
European Parliament issues warnings on HAARP
These military tests are liable to disrupt the Van Allen belt for a long period. The earths magnetic field could be disrupted over large areas, which would obstruct radio communications. According to US scientists it could take hundreds of years for the Van Allen belt to return to normal. HAARP could result in changes in weather patterns. It could also influence whole ecosystems, especially in the sensitive Antarctic regions.
We have ourselves a new, very, very old religion. Gaia. AKA Baal.
“The United States is among the cleanest nations on the planet.”
“Who pays the price for ignoring progress and focusing on fear?”
A better question to ask would be “Who who benefits by ignoring progress and focusing on fear?”.
Couple fighting the EPA may actually win at the Supreme Court!
