Yep, that about sums up the whole green movement.

 Quote:“We can clean

 

Quote:
“We can clean the environment, grow the economy and generate next generation pollution control technologies that we can sell across the globe,” Mendelson said in an interview.

 

OK, is he just saying that or does he have a proposal for how to go about it?  Seriously, if he has a proposal, then it should not be rejected out of hand.  If he really thinks that he can pull that off, then we should look over the idea(s) and consider what response they deserve.  If they are batshit crazy, then we reject them.

 

Come on!  Waiting a few more decades on this doesn't sound like all that smart of an idea but if he has something ready to go on the table, then six months of study work is hardly a make or break deal.

 

And yes, I am well aware that old thread is old.
