This has been annoying me for some time now. Yes, I'm all in favour of cuttign down on pollution and lookign for cleaner fuels etc, but the way it's going is that we are getting to a stage where there are environmental fundementalists! They won't listen to anything which conflicts with their beliefs, look for active punishments for non-belivers and generally try and control important aspects of our lives. I've inserted below a potion of a speech made my Micheal Crighton in 2003 and boy, does it ring true. Why is it that the decision makers pander to the doom mongers instead of makign a decision using differign sets of evidence? And more importantly are beign penalised by punative taxes and restriction when no alternatives are in place to make us change our ways?
