Failure to stop environmental degradation and control global warming, and the conditions that lead to it, will rather quickly destroy our economy and our home planet. This is the number one challenge of the 21st century. A very large majority of the scientific community, and an increasingly substantial part of the business community are in agreement on this.
With the environmental position and objectives of the O'Bama administration, "Green" now has a VERY negative connotation. I cringe when I hear the word.
Why is that the scientific community is not totally in agreement regarding global warming, yet the politicians are anxious to impose regulatory restrictions. The proposed regulations will for certain cause energy costs to escalate at a time when the U.S. economy is faltering.
It really does not matter what green is if the U.S. brings in 100 million more illegal immigrants, per Sen. Harry Reid. There won't be an environment to save, and millions more future immigrants will be looking to come, if other countries' birth rates do not come down, somehow. The future looks bleak in that regard.

There is plenty of recent scientific information questioning the whole concept of 'man made global warming'. But, this has not prevented politicians from pushing a cap and tax bill which will ultimately destroy our economy.
