  • Prof_Chomsky: So how about instead of banning straws, we work with the rest of the G12 and impose hefty environmental tariffs on these polluters that wind up undercutting our jobs/factories by destroying the environment?

    The day we decide to impose an environmental embargo on China the way we do on countries like Iran for nuclear technology, is the day we save the planet.

    China already imposed a environmental embargo on us, by refusing our plastic garbage. Now we have to figure out what to do with it.
  • herbie: Oh here's the meme's origin.
    We aren't the #1 polluter so we shouldn't do shit about pollution.
  • DrCaleb: Get real Herb. We need to let our rivers get as bad as the rest before we do anything about them.

  • llama66: You think making people pay more taxes will prevent pollution?

    Maybe if we invest in more biodegradable tech research and make that cheaper than the alternatives we can curtail pollution. The first step to dealing with pollution is accepting that regardless of what taxes or law you enact; pollution will still happen. Taxing me for "creating carbon" will do nothing. Robbing me of my money to save me is a retarded idea.
