Hats off to you. Nice grouping of $5.00 words..... :)

I like how people will say the US is an uncaring world polluter as you list. I wonder if the people making this claim have viewed Beijing this morning with the Olympics two days away from starting? After 2 months of shutting down factory's, cutting back on auto traffic the air still looks brown. I've never personally experienced brown air and I live near a very large city in the USA. I would add I hope never to have to experience brown air. Has no one over there had any concern about the pollution levels in the past, oh I don't know 6 or 10 years?

It's easy to throw out names when you're sitting in front of your expensive computer, well fed, educated, and comfortable. Doesn't anyone feel they're blessed anymore?
