On the "it's natural" argument...
Oil spreading on certain ocean is all natural therefore its fine.
Mercury is all natural. It's a elemental!
Hemlock is natural too.
You need better arguments than "it's natural".
The oil most likely would not be floating on the world's oceans if man had not interfered/dug it up/drilled for it.
And the rising mercury levels in some world rivers... that would be man's doing again, manufacturing effluent being washed into waterways.
Hemlock, was used for remedial/medicinal purposes, not just sinister ones.
The thing here is that all these natural element are largely inert if left in their natural states. It is usually mans intervention when environmental disasters occur involving these (and other) elements. So yes, mankind needs to clean up its act and be more 'planet friendly', but at the same time, we need truth from out governments and corporations.... and right now we're not getting it.
'global warming' thing is a crock of shit, designed by corporations to part us from more of our money.
Try talking to a scientist about it.
No point talking to scientists! Most of them are corporate lackies being paid to do corporate bidding... to find favourably for corporate agendas/aspirations. And many of the rest of them are eccentric peculiarities studying the mating habits of green tree frogs or some other exotic creature.
The bottom line in all this is... if corporations actually gave a shit about the planet, they'd have employed better business practices years ago... before they stuffed up the environment. No, the truth is that most corporate big-wigs are capitalist pigs who care only about profit and getting rich quick.... amassing as much wealth as possible and bugger at what or whose expense. This has been going on since the advent of the industrial revolution, greedy, profit-driven capitalists exploiting all and sundry, people and resources, and now that they have a few scientists on the payroll (like somebody has to employ them or the university loans never get repaid) to prove they have/had planetary impact, the bastards want us to pay for their greed and monumental cock-ups through increased power and fuel levies.
When power and fuel goes up, so does everything else, but does anyone here honestly believe that our paying through the nose to 'so-say' fix global warming is actually going to work??? Pigs arse it will!!!! We will pay more for less, few if any environmental measures will be implemented, and the big corporate bastards will reap hugely increased profits and run laughing all the way to the bank.
For the most part, science is based on theory and is often dis-proven and or amended later on... and I'll bet my balls this global warming thing (as is presented) will be dis-proven and revealed as being a fallacy to derive greater corporate profits.
