Global warming doesn't cause people to invade other countries...
You have a point but it is still corruption so a certain few can make loads of money.
There are hundreds of reasons to invest in renewable energy rather than spending money on oil. Corruption? You have to be kidding me. Overzealousness maybe, but renewables are a viable industry with or without global warming.
1) Oil funds terrorism (for everyone who thinks Iran is so bad, what do you think they make most of their money on)
2) We can produce renewables domestically
3) We have more control over the price of energy if we go renewable and nuclear.
4) Wind turbines and solar panels can often be put in places that aren't used for anything.
5) Renewable energy doesn't require us to maintain complex relationships (and often wholly corrupt ones) with Middle Eastern countries just so we can run our country on a day to day basis.
The vast "conspiracy" of global warming is honestly doing everyone a favor by moving us towards energy independence (which the Republicans always claim to be for...). Its like you looked in your pocket for a $20 bill and found a $50 instead. Everybody wins. Honestly I see no good reasons why Republicans aren't more onboard with renewables when oil is the life blood of some terrorist organizations and countries hostile to our own. It is completely illogical.
Its like those Saturday morning cartoons where Elmer Fudd takes the head on approach to try and catch Bugs, but Bugs always pulls the rug out from underneath him by thinking ahead. Bugs Bunny always wins. Remember that. Taking away the money that funds terrorism prevents you from having to fight as many of them in the first place.
We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers…Also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls. The only thing that really worried me was the ether. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge. –Raoul Duke
It is hard to shed anything but crocodile tears over White House speechwriter Patrick Buchanan's tragic analysis of the Nixon debacle. "It's like Sisyphus," he said. "We rolled the rock all the way up the mountain...and it rolled right back down on us...." Neither Sisyphus nor the commander of the Light Brigade nor Pat Buchanan had the time or any real inclination to question what they were doing...a martyr, to the bitter end, to a "flawed" cause and a narrow, atavistic concept of conservative politics that has done more damage to itself and the country in less than six years than its liberal enemies could have done in two or three decades. -Hunter S.
