    you don't understand? The quote doesn't say "all fossil fuel use in NY ended".

    •  Oh, I see, "exploitation" means you will exploit (0+ / 0-)

      us. Or you will exploit Nigerians. It has nothing to do with having a carbon footprint about the size of the empire state building. Exploit does not mean burning all the carbon but messing up someone else's back yard. I thought that when you fly to Europe on a jet powered by oil you were exploiting the carbon in that fuel to push the jetliner, perhaps powered by unicorn farts?

      We have those same exploiters move out here to Boulder. I can hear it in their accents. Complete disconnect from reality. I think it comes from being ungodly wealthy.

      narrative unless you work from this point:

      all fossil fuel use in NY ended
      I don't think some people realize how laughably insulting they are to other peoples' intelligence, while they're shoveling such narrative all over a comments section.

      •  Sorry, I was aiming for playful and I managed (0+ / 0-)

        to be insulting. I should remember not to comment before coffee... Again, sorry.
