I can’t believe how naive and short sided my country is becoming. Caring about the environment has become a political issue not a necessity. I don’t care which side of the political fence you stand on, the one common ground we should all have is protecting the environment. If you are choosing the economy over the environment, first of all shame on you, secondly you shouldn’t have too. There are many new jobs that can be created by developing green energy. Instead of complaining to your politicians they you can’t work because of all the regulations on coals. Talk to them about moving those green jobs to your area. Create solar power or wind power. Without earth the economy really doesn’t matter.
