I think environment should be protected even if there were no Global warning.
But how come I start to get cynical and suspicious when politicians start using it as a (populist) political tool?
Also,if its as bad as they would like us to beleive - we're doomed already anyway.
Are they going to impose huge fines on companies who cause environmental catastrophes ?
Probably not (re: Exxon Valdez)
Are they going to start making the airline industry pay tax on jetfuel ?
Are they going to start increase taxing on households with 2 cars or more?
Are they going to increase tax on cheap electrical equipment and appliances?
But they are very happy to harp on about how we the people have got to separate all our rubbish.
People should be insulating their homes anyway,even if its only to save money.
They had the everlasting,low-power lightbulb a long,long time ago but didn't want to sell it to us then.
I beleive there is already cheap,clean power...they'll probably come out with that as a miraculous cure in a few years time...then they can go on about how they have saved us all from the Global Warming Apocalypse.
They create a problem,scare people with it and then pretend they have brilliantly solved the problem and act like heroes.....(see The War on Terrorism-all those soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq are there for your safety folks!)
All those cameras spying on people are there for YOUR safety folks!
