It hasn't even begun, this country is decades behind Europe in conservation technology, which be exactly what pulls out of the economic mess we are in now.LOL. this whole green thing is almost over thank god
That's my point, we alll talk the talk , OIL goes UP, GREEN comes out, gets started and BAM , OIL goes down,It hasn't even begun, this country is decades behind Europe in conservation technology, which be exactly what pulls out of the economic mess we are in now.
Conservation is not the American way :no:
My comment was not aimed strictly at plumbing, but in general. Like it or not there is about a 99% chance Obama will be the next president, and when that happens there is going to be a ton of money poured into alternative energy sources, the Democrats have an agenda to reduce reliance on foreign oil. Being a step ahead of the curve does nothing but help you in the long run, being a step behind may leave you on the outside looking in.
It doesn't matter if oil goes below fifty bucks a gallon, alternative sources are going to happen whether they are popular or not, if you choose not to accept that fact, so be it.If he comes president or not here is some things that have changed:
Gas was $4.50 gallon , now $2.50 , people are not going to send money on green now, we have had solar since the 70's.............
Can you say $850 billion bail out..........yea...........
Were we going to get more money.......Oh yea start the printing press.
I think I am starting to think Ron Paul is not so crazy after all.
BTW, I feel the same way. I am not paying more to save, what, the environment? Everyone could do so much to be green without paying a dime. Eliminate paper towels, hang clothes to dry, take short shower instead of baths, don't flush every flush, don't pour chemicals down the drain, don't buy cheap foreign made junk, carpool etc.
I agree with everything you wrote. My point was that there are many things we can do to save the environment & money. Most of what is being pushed costs money and lines the pockets of business with little thought to really saving the environment.are you doing all of these things then? i don't see the problem with this "green revolution". it's about time as far as i'm concerned. no matter what's for sale, there's an agenda on every side of it. buy into the scam or don't, i don't care. if you don't want to go out of your way to protect what little environment that we have left then spending money is the next best thing. whatever gets the job done. you either pay with $$$$ or your convenience.
i'm not blindly endorsing all the new green products, i'm just saying that the philosophy holds a lot of water. . . .if we all were to prioritize and put mother earth high on the list, i believe things would work out o.k.
rant over, i'm not a hippie.
