    Yep. The Left thinks it's better to shell out billions to well connected companies to produce eco friendly products and have 90% of those companies fail rather quickly. The well connected Leftists become even richer.

    Ok. Climate change is real. Human activity is insignificant. These businesses benefit humanity. Government protection can easily be construed as an investment. What's your carbon footprint?

    Try again.

    Cliff notes:

    Climate changers who want tax dollars to fight it are scumbags

    Big oil are scumbags

    The only losers are the consumers and taxpayers

    The only winners are big oil and scientists that get grants to fund their chicken littling

    Still waiting for ocean front property to reach me. Ain't happening yet. I keep an eye on an old boat house that's been standing for over 100 years in the narrows between Lubec, ME and Campobello Island, NB. It still relies on a monthly full moon tide to allow boats to be floated up onto the rails..(23 foot changes)
    The "Golden Triangle" was a swamp to begin with....

    How is Big Oil a scumbag? It's business. And this planet cannot currently function without it. The technology isn't even close yet.

    Did you read the article? If you did and can't figure out that these scumbags made record profit the past few years and now want taxpayers to fund their **** to protect them against something that I feel is **** and they have vehemently denied and spent millions to fight then I just don't know what to tell you.

    I know. It's tantamount to tying oneself to the tracks. Big Oil isn't going away for at least a millenia. The .gov must have a vested interest in protecting our energy infrastructure.

    No Big Oil can take care of themselves. $115.1 billion in 2017. Or are you coming out publicly in support of socialism?

    The USA operates as one of the cleanest industrialized nations in the world

    China , India and a host of other third world polluters are laughing...... just like our banning straws. ..... news flash most (96%) of the garbage in the ocean is NOT from the US

    Global warming is a farce

    So is Big Oil who made billions begging for TAXPAYER money to fund protection from it.

    Hardly. Does the .gov provide energy to the masses? No. Business does. The .gov is just another customer. A huge one. They can do their part. Things that business by itself, and citizens cannot. Things that benefit everyone, rooted in energy security. Capitalism in action.

    Again, did not read the article. They are asking for TAXPAYER money to protect them from global warming. Seriously? You are OK with that? Maybe they can raise your taxes to protect every private business from global warming. Then raise the again to protect from space rays. Socialism in action.

    Capitalism means they pay for it themselves..... Ocasio is that you? Because that is your logic right now.
