Thank you Mark, I was never good at diplomacy in school :)
Always there with the sledgehammer, bang, there goes another!!

Passionate as I may be about this planet, I should be careful to what I say
but this is a great example of bringing hot discussions to this table, it is
the wrong place, that's for sure. I do apologize for my statement, it was
not meant to offend anyone.

Let's just hope I stay healthy, right!!

Hi Philip,
  Do not give up on this really valuable resource. I think the statement 
could have been thought through a little more :) Although, I think the fact 
that man and womankind sometimes act worse than animals, but also rise up to

angel status as well, speaks to the real violent and benevolent tool here, 
our mind. Used correctly we can ascend the hieghts, incorrectly the gutter. 
Unfortunately in America we are choosing to elect officials with more of an 
allegiance to a base materialistic money hungry business world rather than 
to those few officials who are in touch with our environmental legacy. It 
may be a consolation to know and realize that many of these types of huge 
environmentally industries are on their way out due to depletion of 
resources, namely oil, coal, etc ..etc. as we are moving further into the 
information age. Let's hope we aren't too late.
