I showed an option for heating that uses old oil that would be landfilled or dumped somewhere, and the best that you have to say is, that would work but too polluting. The amount of lead in the oil would be minimal, and remember we used to add lead to fuel. You people are causing the problem, Nuclear power is a good energy source, but you have to say thats too polluting as well. The fact is, any new technology that is used to harness energy, you people will try to deny any benifical use of it. It's because of the environmentalists that we have a percived energy shortage, there is still plenty of oil untapped, but it's surrounded by red tape environmetalists have put in place.

without any support whatso ever, and it's like, why do you believe that? What possible reason do you have to believe that other than it's inconvient for what you want?My point is I believe the environment is less fragile than what many enviromentalists make it out to be

If there is something we want in the enviroment, there's no reason why we can't extract it resposibly. It's abit like a child, you can over care too much for the child, and it's not healthy for the child. My point is I believe the environment is less fragile than what many enviromentalists make it out to be. The ozone layer regenerates itself, cfc's do not cause any damage, the hole is natural, it expands and contacts every year. I have also explained many times on this forum that co2 does not cause global warming, with proof and infact co2 is good for the environment and us. People say look at all the hurricans, we I say thats natural, and if infact there weren't any hurricans this year, I would have been very suprised as the scientist say that the US is an a hurrican cycle period and is not out of the ordinary.
