Both democrats and republicans are responsible for loss of jobs overseas. But if you want to use it to blame "liberals" then go for it.

That's true, and it's also true that in some cases we just can't compete with slave labor and the ability to just dump toxic waste into the sea. But in the case of the ship breakers the filthy and environmentally hazardous process is only being done...

in Bangladesh because they need the scrap for their growing economy. If not for the war on carbon we could keep that industry and run it way cleaner than they will in 3rd world countries. If environmentalism is such a global movement why send industry

to places where things are going to be worse, and things like mercury lead and asbestose are left to wash out in high tide.

You're preaching to the choir. The environmental and humanitarian costs that are incurred for the sake of profit is deplorable.

But the " war on carbon" is a veil to distract the blame from those that profit from the process.

I agree the war on carbon is a distraction but on both sides. GW alarmests make others feel good with it "look at you, you're saving the planet by shutting down that evil industry in your town, just don't look over in China where it's made now."

There's too much "not in my back yard" bull **** tied to environmentalism these days and as we lose our industry we lose our control and ability to keep it some what clean.

The only reason we can do it "cleaner" is because we have regulations in place to make sure we don't pollute our backyard. You can't have clean and economically competitive when the rules are different. The dollar wins in the end.

furthermore it cracks me up that we ban certain pesticides here in the U.S. so they sell them to third world countries that grow the produce sold in the U.S.!!! Congressional idiots

In this country, someone making a circuit board has to wear all kinds of PPE to test a plating bath, while someone in a third world country wearing shorts and a wife-beater t-shirt in sandals sticks his finger in a plating bath and tastes it

and decides the solution needs more copper sulfate. When the bath is done, it gets dumped into the rice paddies out behind the factory... and we wonder why fish has mercury in it, rice is full of arsenic and other metals... not to mention

Sonmanto that invented corn that contains its own insecticide- guess what happens with 5-10-15 years of soil bioconcentration as the husks and stalks are plowed back into the soil, regardless of whether that field is crop rotated or not....

Are we unable to say Monsanto?

A great example of the power of money and short sightedness that affects the lives of our children and our generations to come. Regardless of politics this an issue of our responsibility to preserve an environment that can allow humanity to evolve.
