How about by starting with some human population management instead of interfering with the animal populations, who do just FINE without human interference and manipulation. We're the only species who doesn't have the sense to responsibly limit our population. How about returning the emphasis of business to serving society, instead of corporate interests treating citizens as though we are are here to simply line their pockets, regardless of how they butcher and destroy the planet around us. How about forcing, YES, BY LEGISLATION, automakers finally to put up and shut up and give motorists better vehicle fuel mileage, as I am SICK of their whining and moaning about "profit, profit, profit" and the selfish idiots who over-consume. Personally, I could care less if they all go out of business if they will not be reasonable and provide the electric-powered or alternatively powered vehicle for which prototypes and technology already exists. And while we're at it, let's not invade other countries under the guise of "imposing democracy" or digging up Alaskan wildlife refuges which would produce no oil for years and years. How're those things for a start? Pardon me, list, I am crabby today.

We are about to run out of cheap oil - the demand will exceed the supply. So do we invade oil-bearing nations to get the oil? You are subscribed to VA-Richmond-General.
