Last month Popular Science magazine posed the following question on their website. They received 4,627 responses.

"Would you favor efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions even if they could hurt the economy?"

Yes - 47%
No - 53%

How would you vote?

"Hurt the economy" sounds very vague. How? Would it affect my paycheque? My taxes? By how much? Or will it hurt the poor oil tycoons?

Plus, in the long run, it'll HELP the economy by saving money on health care, environmental cleanup, etc.

It sounds like a loaded question.

Mr I here...

Yes Tway, it is a loaded question, but so is the US government.

Mrs I here...

Yes Dave, Bushy voted NO, and we get to drill in ANWAR now. The caribou will have jobs for life. (He's such an ass! Bushy - not the caribou.)

Well and the fact that Popular Mechanics glorifies the use of weaponry that is used to kill people around the world is enough for me not to really care what they have to say.
