    "...prevent corporations from treating the atmosphere as their open sewer..."

    No. It isn't corporations. It's EVERYONE. Everyone who drives. Everyone who's on the grid. Everyone, demanding energy, cheap or otherwise.

    It will not work forever to blame corporations for global warming...we can blame them, certainly for KEEPING the causes in place, and profiting obscenely from them...but unless you live without electricity and ride a bike everywhere, you are part of the problem. Go ahead and attack this point, which is not without its own solutions and holes in the theory...but people attack, rather than admit the problem is themselves, and not their enemies. Like the GOP.
