#44 - murphypop (03/01/2014) [-]
I was just using that as an example of how aggressive lobbies are in American government. Even though turning government paper forms into e-forms would save over a billion dollars over the remaining decade, the paper lobby created the Consumers for Paper Options. It's a misnomer, since no consumers were involved in the formation of the group.

My point about the slightly sinister propagandic tags they use to sell their point. "Information access for all" is just a thin veil for "we'll lose A LOT of money if we can't sell our envelopes to the government to be used in mailing forms." What the government is trying to do is reduce paper forms, not eliminate them, so the lobby's point about 30% of people not having internet access is completely useless to thei argument.

Sorry to get all "politically ranty" and stuff, I'm just trying to say what goes on and why.

convenient when paying with cash, however debit transactions aren't rounded up and are still charged to the fictitious penny.
User avatar #32 - murphypop (03/01/2014) [-]
I agree. I don't know how I feel about it though, because I'm trapped between my coin collecting hobby and knowing that there's probably a copper lobby group with some patriot propaganda name that's keeping the penny in place.

Finally, here is a double line plot that compares Europe's emission control progress with USA's emission control progress. This one is important because it compares two groups with similar economy sizes and comparable population sizes, and also because Europe is usually held up as the standard for environmental legislature.

I'm not even done. This one's a line graph that highlights where current CO2 emissions are coming from in our fuel consumption. While it looks like it's just cancelling each other out, each line has it's own integral, so there has a much larger decrease than it seems.

Yeah. By outsourcing the pollution to countries with lax laws and cheap workforce. You really think China would have such a pollution problem if there wasn't money to be made?
User avatar #135 - clannadqs (03/01/2014) [-]
I just don't understand people like you. How do you sit there and say to yourself," I'm going to make an educated comment on this subject", when you haven't done any research at all.
#159 - someoneforamoment (03/02/2014) [-]
Close your eyes.
Spin around in a circle then point at a random object.
Find out where it's made
Look up that country's environmental laws compared to your own.
Repeat until you are confident that there is no sample bias.
User avatar #88 - iridium (03/01/2014) [-]
Yes.

China would be that way about pollution regardless. As a rapidly industrializing nation they would be polluted the same way with out us. Maybe not as polluted at any one point in time as we are admittedly accelerating their economy. But they would still be pretty darn polluted.
User avatar #71 - murphypop (03/01/2014) [-]
There's also an effort to "insource" manufacturing jobs, especially in the automobile industry. I absolutely hate outsourcing, but I don't think that's the primary reason we're seeing reduced emissions. And yes, I would think China would have that problem. China is combining India's population density problems with an attempt to catch up in standard of living with the rest of the world. This puts a lot of buses and cars on the roads. They also have an extremely aggresive manufacturing sector, and when you combine that with their extremely lax copyright laws, is terrible for the environment. It's the fact that you are scaling up America's culture of consumption to whatever the population of Chinese young adults is, and it's pretty obvious why China's domestic market economies are on the same scale of GLOBAL economies.

I wonder where your political views are?
User avatar #176 - sursum (03/02/2014) [-]
Implying right wing is instantly anti green. Try looking at right wing groups other than the Republican party for a change.
User avatar #177 - nought (03/02/2014) [-]
> Implying I'm implying

The right wing has been traditionally pro-business and a bit anti-environmentalist. The conservative American Enterprise Institute offered scientists money for criticizing a report about climate change. If you take a look at politicians who deny climate change, you'll see a pattern: Michelle Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gringritch, Ron Paul, Marco Rubio. These are all notable people representing the right wing, and the Republican party is the main right wing group in America.
User avatar #178 - sursum (03/02/2014) [-]
Ron Paul isn't a denier of climate change, your just spouting off names of important figures and attaching a predetermined set of principles. And I never said the Republican party isn't the main right wing party in the US, I'm just saying that accepting the Republican ideology as the sole voice of right leaning people is incorrect.

Just because you vote R doesn't mean you are a climate change denier and against green energy.

UPDATE: Just watched it. There were definitely some uncomfortable parts, mainly the people they don't feature as a main character and the fact that the Discord narrator mentioned clopping and then immediately changed the subject. Other than that, it was a pretty good documentary. I felt it kept to a story line throughout most of it (got a little slow towards the end), but it was a good film for approaching a subject most people would normally find pretty uncomfortable, and I would recommend it to any parents of Bronies. For the record, I am not a Brony.
