Well, more drilling and coal mining, and burning more fossil fuels = more money for everyone, right? it's proven trickle down economics.

with that extra money we can then go buy purified air to breathe and carry around with us at all times.

so who gives a shit if the normal atmosphere is all smog? not me.

So that was the moans of wettest of wet dreams ecstasy cuming true for Chuck and Davy Koch that I heard this morning!!

My electricity actually flickered on and off several times as well for about 10 mins....and I am not kidding.

Think that I will give a listen to my old Pink Floyd "Animals" CD this evening in observation of the EPA's envirotrash decision.

“The EPA’s decision today is consistent with President Trump’s agenda to keep America’s air clean and our economy growing,” said Senate Environment Committee Chairman John Barrasso of Wyoming. “Withdrawal of this policy means manufacturers, oil and gas operations, and other types of industrial facilities will have greater incentive to reduce emissions.”

The only incentives that Big Energy/Industry has is to privatize profits, and socialize losses as much as is possible....and that possibility is only going to increase thanks to Pruitt's EPA. Maybe it should be renamed the Environmental Destruction Agency, to better represent what it is rapidly becoming.


Obviously these wealthy corporate execs and their sock-puppet reps in Congress are stone-cold sociopaths who only give a shit about their assets, themselves, and their families, everyone else can deal with the negative consequences of their naked greed.

For one BIGLY example, Drumpf's SoS, Rex Tillerson joined in a suit over a fracking water tower being constructed near his residence in a suburb of Dallass Texass a few years ago.


"Michael Whitten, who runs a small law practice in Denton, Texas. Mr. Whitten said Mr. Tillerson's primary concern is that his property value would be harmed."

Sadly there are so many swamp critters in charge under Trump and Pruitt is a complete and utter incompetent fool. Its criminal what he is doing. It will take years to undo the damage Trump and his gang of fools are doing.

His member profile indicates that his last post was last April, did he get perma-banned or just quit?

If increased carbon emissions eventually activate a tipping point for the planet's delicate atmospheric balance, we might not still be around to clean up after anything. The soil level is very thin in SA's quickly disappearing rainforests, and they are a YUUGE source of filtering CO2 from Earths atmosphere. The Siberian tundra is warming and forming massive sinkholes in the permafrost....but since baby jeebus controls the weather. maybe all we need to do is to pray moar and harder for them to just go away.
