    Yeah, just saw on CNN. This is fucking nuts. In a way I am glad all of this is happening, maybe it'll finally wake Americans up. The Right to Pollute is not one of your freedoms.

      you're are a ridiculous bleeding heart liberal.. you're heart is WAY bigger than your brainbliznutty8/34
      ah yes, excellent insight.. just calling someone a "bleeding heart liberal". wow. impressive.iCanHasQBN9/34
      never heard that one before! *yawn*.iCanHasQBN10/34
      so if one is concerned about pollution in the water and the air we breathe, that makes them a baaad person, right??iCanHasQBN11/34
      yeah.. you're being an asshole.bogue12/34
      in your mind oil = America = bad (If you had any brain you would see its not that simple)bliznutty13/34
      So you're ok with this outrageous dependency on oil we have? The current situation suits you just fine?iCanHasQBN14/34
      and America DOES = oil. Our entire way of depends on it. Our way of life needs to change.iCanHasQBN15/34
      hey iCanHasBrain, you assume i don't have a heart or b/c i don't agree with your anti-Americanismbliznutty16/34
      i used to think simple like you, black & white, my heart always bleeding- then i grew upbliznutty17/34
      ah yes, i am the simpleton and you're the grown up who has been there and done that. congratulations!...iCanHasQBN18/34
      ...again you offered no point, but would rather belittle someone.iCanHasQBN19/34
      <--- reread your post you idiotbliznutty20/34
      funny with the namecalling. are you an adult? and yes i read my post. in fact i wrote it, so you can probably assumeiCanHasQBN21/34
      ...that i read it.iCanHasQBN22/34
      this post is why i hate dimwitted lefties who are so concerned about the air and the environmentbliznutty23/34
      maybe one day you'll realize that humans cannot breathe or drink money. at least give a shit about future generations.iCanHasQBN24/34
      thats the problem with right-wingers. so self-involved and individualistic. all about me me me. the definition of selfish.iCanHasQBN25/34
      god you're ridiculous..bliznutty26/34
      Your notion that it's a bad thing to care about the environment is what's ridiculous.iCanHasQBN27/34
      my notion is that people like you that 'care about the environment' are not thinking the whole thing throughbliznutty28/34
      again you're heart is bigger than your brain.. and your heart is NOT bigger than minebliznutty29/34

    Georges - the point is that a helluva lot of those products can be made without refining oil.

    The problem is that until race-to-the-bottom economics don't favour oil either through subsidies or imposition of 'environmental costs', there is little incentive in developing non-oil-based alternatives.

    I mean come on - how do you think our ancestors made candles, perfume and fishing Lures before the turn of the last century?

    No oil = no plastic
    No plastic = everything in plastic around you would be in wood.

    Take a look around you, in your office. Imagine all that plastic replaced by wood.
