Why or why not.
I'm personally of the mindset of "If you cant make a buck without a minimal impact on the environment, then don't."

I'm down with that. On the other hand, we could also build this country deep under ground so we don't even have to deal with all the other counties' fuck ups.

If the government wants a plot of land protected (not counting flowing waterways like run-off into rivers and creeks), then they should buy the land and make it a park. If you aren't willing to buy the land, then shut the #### up and stop fucking with the monetary value of other people's land by legislating what can and can't be done with it after the fact.

You should drink more coffee before posting.
Here's a thought for your Ducks Unlimited loving self: Polluters may pollute their on own land, but it is never contained to only their land. Winds blow smokestack effluent across property lines and borders. Pig shit seeps into the ground water table. A buried barrel of arsenic ends up in the town water supply.

There's no such thing as "only polluting your own land." Therefore, to keep you from pissing in everyone else's cornflakes in the name of "Private Land Rights," there will be common sense environmental laws.

I have no problem with common sense laws. It's the stupid "endangered animal fuckers" that make "no fucking sense" laws that really piss me off.

Yeah, I like the protecting of land/nature/etc.

Coal plants, but with scrubbers/etc for example.

I vote we have a nuclear-only power grid.

Coal is so... 1800's.

Heck, I'd even say solar if

1. We set up shop in a sunny country, and

2. Technology makes solar collection slightly more efficient.

But for now, fission is the sexiest shit out there.

Solar is close the price of natural gas, but only cuz gas has gotten so bloody expensive.

See my post here. This solves the environmental problem too, IMO.
