Except for them of course. Living like that is just for us unwashed masses.
There are ‘climate rules’?Really? Rules without ANY evidnce that man is responsible for climate change? And we’re allowing this as a nation?

We truly are lost as a nation if we’re ghoign to keep allowing people in power to extort money from us liek this without due cause!
Just what America needs to scuttle our own energy independece. The EPA should be reduced by 90% and just worry about cleaning up the water supply. If they ever got that right we might have confidence in them.
