Seriously, the global warming argument is irrelevent to me. It's as simple as this--if you foul the place you live in with pollution, bad things are going to happen to you. For all the problems the EPA can cause with a few regulations I consider draconic, they are the only reason that we in the US aren't suffering the same horrendous pollution issues that Asians have to endure.
My favorite comment on the entire environmentalist scare tactics is from Michael Chrichton in Jurrasic Park, when someone uses the environmentalist's catch phrase of saving the planet' the character replies, 'The planet can take anything we can throw at it. It isn't the planet we need to save, it's ourselves, because we can't surive it'

'To argue with those who have renounced the use and authority of reason is as futile as to administer medicine to the dead.' Now who said that?
