"Evil"? "Sin"? Please. Trying to kill the competition is what *every* business does. You're kidding yourself if you think otherwise. And Microsoft wasn't trying to kill the competition by doing anything other than competing with them. This whole "Microsoft is evil and Google isn't" is really pretty childish.

Personally I think this issue and other other pressures on ocean life from man such as pollution and plastic debris is far more pressing in the snort term than global warming but hardly anyone - even the enviromentalists - makes a big deal about it.

There are quite a few large studies about the plastic content in the oceans, and quite a few oceanographers have raised concerns. You should Google it!

If you benefit from having employers able to hire you and pay your salary, it's a race to make your country competitive environment for employers to hire.

Uh, no. Hiring isn't really connected to taxes. That's a lie that the Big Businesses and Fox and Friends have been telling for a long time. In fact, if taxes are going to be high, I might hire *more* pay *less* in tax.

To spot the expert, pick the one who predicts the job will take the longest and cost the most.
