Quotes from carbon nation:

"Do I think man is causing global warming? No, but that doesn’t make any difference. I want clean water and I want clean air. And that’s so simple." THE WILD ALASKAN

"Climate change in fact is a national security issue. This is no longer the purview of Birkenstock-wearing tree huggers. Not that there’s anything wrong with that." THE ARMY COLONEL

"So if you don’t give a damn about the environment, do it because you’re a greedy bastard and you just want cheap power." THE BIOCHEMICAL ENGINEER
