    •  Yes, used extensively by...guess who? (7+ / 0-)

      Cookie for those who said Kochs.

      And, even more shamelessly, it is the people like the Kochs who are worried that cutbacks will cause fractional decreases in their obscene profits upon faith that all future cost of inaction will be...guess! Socialized, correct.

      What the Kochs are saying is "we want to make a profit off our gigantic mess that you will be forced to pay to clean. Freedom!"

      Because, deep down, they know damn well that they are causing all this, they just don't care about others, because Freedom!

          I didn't know and didn't care whether they personally "used it" they were making money off it and would be used somewhere in our atmosphere.

          But, I DO appreciate you adding who was actually burning it - I think it does say something about who is willing to buy - thx - peace.

        Unchecked greed will result in the end of the world as we know it, and a lot of us know that.

        God will not step in and save us from ourselves, and a lot of us, the faithful who believe in God. know that too.

        The soul, we believe, is eternal, so what happens to the material world, including the planet Earth, because of a turning away from values like love and caring about others is not going to push God into an intervention to save the Earth. That's just wishful thinking on the part of some who fear death's honesty.
