listen, I realize that you republicans have a different definition of rape than the rest of the world, , but violation is violation. I get your point about the rest of the world but someone has to take the lead and that someone should be the US. On the other hand, I also do not favor anything drastic that will indeed be a drain on economic growth but it doesn't mean that we cannot begin to take some steps in the right direction. It doesn't mean that we should not invest in other technologies along the way when it makes sense to do so and when the proposed solution is viable. I would love to offer a global solution but I am not familiar enough with the science of climate change to make anything close to even an educated guess. That should be left to the experts. But to completely sit on our hands and do nothing is unacceptable.
