    No need to support the Koch family, but vote for Romney if you care about your kids future.

    This is such a misleading dimlib cartoon. We cannot restrict how much CO2 or other things factories spew out, because we need the production and the jobs, but the people in homes like those shown would make sure NIMBY.

    The homes downwind of the plants would be shanties where we commoners who work in the plants live, not the posh homes of our betters. And, since we’re desperate to keep our jobs and keep our betters in their posh homes far from the plants (and upwind), we’ll vote to keep the plants smokin’.

    Do some reading on the Koch Brothers and particularly on their father. Choose several sources, objective ones are best.

    But Mr. C, it’s much more satisfying to find some political dot org that agrees with a our preconceptions. (tongue in cheek)

    Europeans tend to live in densely populated areas and don’t have much of a choice. We could learn from them, but it would be a waste of our wide open spaces.

    I have a question about your “nobody wants dirty air or water” statement: I know it is probably true, but why do conservatives complain every time emissions are regulated or clean energy sources are discussed? If nobody wants pollution, why is it taboo to try to do something about it?

    What sort of controls does Germany have on the mining of coal, and can they buy it from any nation regardless of how they obtain it?

    I add my voice to Fourcrows and further, I’ve noticed in other of ScottPM’s posts with statements like the one he makes here. That repeating lies don’t make them true. While there has been diversion, divisiveness, and dishonesty on all sides, there have been many more out and out lies by and on behalf of the extreme right. Perhaps I’m wrong, perhaps ScottPM knows information I’ve not seen on the television news, read in my local paper, or heard on NPR. Maybe he knows objective honest websites that only deal with facts I’ve not yet been exposed to. If so, educate me. Otherwise, no matter how many times a lie is repeated, it will not become true.

    In the 1970’s, Nat’l Geo had a cover story on how the Black Forest was dying. Pics of sick and dying trees filled the cover story. In 2008, I had the pleasure of spending 3 weeks on the roads and rivers of Germany. We saw three plastic bags littering the highways that three weeks. A few carparts here and there, but NO litter except those 3 bags. Koln was nearly as clean as was Heidelberg. The sky was a rich deep blue, High Definition one soldier called it, and the entire country looked loved. Zippering, the requirement of drivers to make room for merging traffic or get a ticket, kept traffic jams at rush hour moving briskly. Germany is currently Europe most financially secure country carrying Greece and other Euro members through their problems. In the USA, they have already weakened and underfunded EPA regs and are blaming these regs for lost jobs and productiity. A Texas state congressman said recently, let Texas worry about its own air. That would be fine if Texas was under a glass dome. I hope the USA can soon recognize the profit and viability of living in a healthy green nation. Thank you for your comment.

    Forgot to say, the Black Forest was healed and BEAUTIFUL and had a wonderful weekend in Tittisee.

    Great ’toon Jim!! The GOP will never protect the middle class, they owe their souls to the radical rich: destory the education system, destory the EPA, destory financial reforms — to the hell with the little people.

    What the cartoon is really about is the Koch Brothers and the repubtard ads in the swing states about Obama killing the Coal industry. It is a lie. Coal production in the US is at an all time high and so are coal stocks.
    Coal fired power plants are being replaced by Natural Gas generators. Natural Gas electricity power generation in 2011 was 45% of all electricity produced. Coal was 19% , a drop from 30% the year before. Wind , Solar and water electricity generation was 35% of the total. Double than that for 2009 and set to double again by 2014.
    All those “carbon credits” the right has deride all these years have been sold to Russia and China, for a profit. China is the single biggest buyer of US coal in the world. But the Koch brother want you to believe a lie, just like the lie about non existing voter fraud.

    We cannot let the EPA ruin american industry. Businesses have always sacrificed the worker for the greater good of the company.

    Isn’t that a dead child, and possibly a dead dog, in the front yard?

    I was once in a position to ensure my company complied with EPA regulations. Being In that position necessitated I subscribe to a high dollar legal newsletter that outlined legal decisions by courts on EPA enforcement. (Those letters saved my and my vice-president’s rear end on occasion) I don’t know about conservatives or liberals and the EPA, but the EPA ignores court orders and makes up rules of enforcement (or non) as they go along. Maybe it’s just that conservatives squeak louder than liberals or liberals believe the EPA can do no wrong.
