    Protecting the environment means ending chemtraining, and that would upset individuals who are much higher than these petty party lines.

    CONS think clean air, clean water, natural beauty, etc. are for sissies. They like to "conserve" racism, homophobia, religious nonsense, hazing/bullying, binge drinking culture, police brutality, warmongering, gross inequality, an aristocracy of obscene inherited wealth and power, etc. - not the environment. By today's standards, Nixon, who created the EPA, would be considered a flaming liberal.

      How would Kennedy be considered a conservatard today? I don't hate him - as far as I know he wanted to prevent the Vietnam war, reign in the Federal Reserve mafia and bust Israel for illegally building WMDs - he was murdered by CONS for these reasons. I think he was a true patriot and a hero.

    How does someone "oppose the environment"? That doesn't even make sense. I oppose ignorant questions.

      you're not a scientist. You're a wanker obsessed with large breasted women, who probably never had a real girlfriend

    there are sections of China the size of Connecticut where the ecosystem has been poisoned and will remain "dead" for centuries.... but China paid billions to the nations and politicians like Bill Clinton who pushed the Kyoto Protocols to give them a pass...

    Brazil razes a section of Rain Forest the size of Rhode Island every year to plant sugar cane to produce ethanol....but since this counts as "green energy" production, they get a pass...

    the Paris Accords allow 3rd world countries to displace millions of natives from their ancestral lands, coincidentally (wink wink) while also raising labor and regulatory costs on first world industries... how will these industries escape these costs? surprise surprise! the 3rd world nations don't have those same regulations AND they suddenly have all this cheap labor available!

    ....are you getting to "hoax" part yet?

      Contard logic: Since Mexico, China and India pollute the sh*t out of their own countries and treat their workers like slaves, the USA has to do the same in order to compete with them. They're not too smart, are they?

    Conservative leaders are beholden to wealthy industrialists who would very much like to be able to pollute the environment with complete impunity, and so anything resembling an environmental concerns signals a threat to those people and the elected conservatives they control.

      Bye speaks the truth - see KOCH BROTHERS (aka Kock Brothers).

      out2lunch4now2 - Conservative leaders can afford to live in the best areas, which have relatively better air, water, etc. - yes, really, it's true. The rest of us, they don't give a sh*t about.

    It's nothing personal. Protecting the environment means forgoing some opportunities to make a profit and failure to take advantage of every opportunity to make as much money as possible is what gets them hopping mad.

      The first person I heard deny global warming also denied the paasenger pigeon was extinct. Bad things like that just don't happen to nice people in the USA, she thought!
