    All this comes to a screeching halt, if the Greenies have their way.

    They don’t even realize how cruel they are.

    Mean while, the Indian farmers are depleting the aquifers through ever more powerful pumps running on almost free electricity and/or deteriorating receiving waters and/or depriving the country’s citizens of more basic staples leading to higher inflation and other food problem.

    This has nothing to do about being a greenie. If that’s the way real economics is supposed to work, so be it. But the avowed free market rationalists should know there is more than a simple cash transaction taking place.

    Jim, well said.

    Have the greenies ever cared if brown people suffer, so long as they can feel smug in their condos?

    Now that item falls right in the center of the great category: “News You Can Use.”

    Folks like Joe. They know *so* *much* *more*! And they are so willing to *SHARE*!

    I really don’t know where the rest of us would be without them. Probably left utterly ignorant of cost-benefit analysis.

    Thank you, Joe. You are indeed “special.”

    “We don’t want to jump the gun, but the shale gas industry has racked up quite an impressive record.”

    Silly Meadia! Don’t you realize that increased material prosperity in developing countries is an ecological net negative?
