When has it ever been in the best interest of current financial and executive officers to factor in future costs when the costs will only be truly incurred after they retire?  How can you honestly expect someone to do what they do not perceive to be in their own best interest?

Because it is in the best interest of mankind

That's why you're a liberal and I'm a conservative.

true - pretty much strikes at the heart of it -
you think i'm wasting your money and your time
I think your wasting my children's future.

But generally with most conservatives if I discuss econmic models and theories I feel like we can reach some middle ground.  Actually I sometimes like to think of myself as a Teddy Roosevelt conservative and I know that Nixon did more for the environment than any other president in the 20th century.  And I have a bit of a libertarian streak and would be if I thought that economic models accounted for all costs (which they don't) Adam Smith's hand does not guide w/o prejudice.

Who I can't understand our the Christian Coalition.  Some of them just go by faith that God will provide so do whatever and he'll clean it up and if he doesn't and humans do create environmental disastors, if global climatic change increases the number of hurricanes annual well than it is God's will and he is bringing on the appocaplse.  Praise the lord.

The Neo-cons brought the CC into the Republican fold and I hope that real republicans take that control back.

In my view the CC belong in the same catagory as the liberal elitist crowd.  They both want to make laws that tell other people what to do "for their own godd".

NY Senate Race odds:

Odds of Chuck Schumer being re-elected- 98.37%

His opponent is a abolute joke.  Something Mills, a two-term state assemblyman (which is like our house of representatives.)  He trails in the latest poll 72-17%, and about 300 people came to the nominating convention.
