You may call it 'the dark ages', but any number of people understand that history shows this planet has had measurable temperature fluctuations since the day it was formed.

I support doing as much as one can to reduce their foot print ecologically - recycle, reduce waste, recycle nature to nature, for the general health of us all.

I think with logic and common sense, not emotional based decisions for the benefit of a taxing authority.
GREAT post!

I'm still trying to find out what the next step is after we all become believers. I don't think anyone knows.

Other than taxing the shlt out of everyone, creating 1,000's of job killing regulations, and building a humongous new government bureaucracy hell bent on more control over us minions, I don't know what we could do. I guess what ever money is left over we could give to developing nations so they don't pollute.

Nothing, Just live in shlt and leave shlt to the future generations. Give all the public land to corporations and that's about it. No point in doing anything.

Oh come on now Mikey. Maybe if the believers would set a good example, and do something, instead of spending all their time going after non-believers, things would move along at the pace you want it to.

The majority of the land already belongs to the government, just another form of a corporation. No need to transfer it.

without the "Make America Beautiful" campaign our highways would be a blight on the landscape. Without laws changing about landfills we would be running from wolf rats.
You may call it 'the dark ages', but any number of people understand that history shows this planet has had measurable temperature fluctuations since the day it was formed.
let's not add to it

Trouble is, not everyone has common sense except when faced with jail time or a fine.

So according to your comments, governmental regulation is the only thing keeping our planet clean(er).

It will never be an 'everyone' involvement. But with government regulation and taxation, it will still be the same.
