Getting Religion.....

Democrats, who's religion is a trusting faith in big government and activist anti-corporate activities have grabbed onto the 'green' revolution that has swept nihilist Europe.

So, Democrats want you to listen to them in their bleating to rise bikes more ofter, don't waste energy, pay much higher prices as conservation measures through huge carbon based tax increases and myriad of other intrusive government mandated activities.

However, despite bloviating messiahs like Al Gore, higher prices for fuel are driving many people to adopt and develop new technologies and operating methods without the heavy hand of government...
The air travel industry has taken a lot of heat for being slow to address its environmental impact, and some say parts of the eco-conference were just slick PR. But even some critics say the fact the industry is discussing environmental stewardship shows it's finally getting serious about the issue -- if only because doing so is in its best interest. "Climate change could mean fewer coastal vacation destinations, inaccessible airports and a general economic malaise that cuts travel spending," says Liz Barratt-Brown of the Natural Resources Defense Council. "Looked at in that context, you could argue that the aviation sector has the most to lose from global warming."
So, let the market determine what the best course is to take because if government determines this, it will inevitably cause a misallocation of resources that will invariable lead to bigger more difficult problems in the future.
