People call liberals “tree huggers” and other derogatory names because we like to favor the elimination of waste and pollution. Personally I don’t think this makes any sense. The fact is that there is a toll that is taken on the environment when we burn fuel, dig up minerals, and pump oil out of the ground. Not only does it effect the environment through waste, but there is only a finite amount of these resources available. I don’t care if we have 50 years worth or 100 years worth…they will eventually run out. We should be investing in clean, and completely renewable resources. By investing, I don’t mean the small investments we are making. There needs to be serious dedication to a change in our energy (sorry Sam…I know much of the family makes a living in coal…but this is what I believe).
