    You didn't mention how you get to work every day, how you heat your home, and you didn't mention if you're dependent upon a food store to put food on your table.

    It all takes energy, and some people are complaining because they don't understand why a smaller box of corn flakes costs more today than it did yesterday.

    So it's okay for your children to be unable to breathe, or to have their earth wiped out slowly by changing climate? So you really think that 3.5 billion humans on earth have no effect?

    Hmmmm. Just proves that ignorance is bliss.

    Until it become obvious that bliss isn't always as good at it may seem.

    Why can't we sue the enviromentalists? Over lost jobs, lost tax base, lost time with family who have to move away, and lost access to public lands. When are we the people who live in the western states going to get sick and tired of these sue happy enviromentalists and sue back? Look at all the tax dollars they waste. Look at the amount of court time they waste. They don't really care about this planet. They just care about money, lots of money, our tax dollars!

    I would like to see some before and after figures. Is the ozone truely due to gas production? What was the ozone level before the gas production?

    It seems there are still some who haven't heard yet that their claims have been scientifically proven to be a scientific hoax. Ozone and pollution are not related. The group can turn off the act and come to their senses now, at least get a life.
