So who are today’s “environmental leaders?” Were they ever as influential as a Steve jobs, Bill Gates, or a Jack Welch?

Look at what you buy, see where it is made and you will understand that the solution is for our employees to get the same pay and benefits as in China. Also have Corporations pay the same tax rates and the Nation live with the same environmental laws as China. But before getting the available work, you would have to be proficient in Chinese. You might not have to relocate.
You have to admit that that at least some liberals are smart - influencing and indoctrinating children.
I just received a graduation announcement from the son of some very good friends of mine, Evangelical Christians, living in Texas.
Their son just graduated from a well-known university with a double major in “Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.”
I think he’s been indoctrinated.
