When someone farts or belches in a roomful of other people, they say "excuse me." They don't brag about how good their dinner was. When an entire nation releases huge clouds of CO2 into the atmosphere, they don't apologize or even own up to it. Instead, they boast on their economic progress. Where'd everyone's manners go? Why are the economic leaders of this country such inconsiderate, irresponsible assholes? Island nations such as Tuvalu have every right to sue for damages. Those who benefit most from the current economic model are the ones most responsible for those damages. I didn't ask for an economy reliant upon petroleum. The economic leaders of this country thrust it upon me. I sure wish they had invested their money in some other way to develop some other economic model. Yeah, that's where I'm laying the blame. I didn't force them to develop a petroleum based economy but they sure forced me to live in one.
