Action? What does that mean? Does government claim to be able to express favorable control (whatever that is) on climate? Where I work we labor to control simple engineering dynamical systems. Do these government charlatans claim to be able to control climate with political strictures? Ignore them. 6 billion people in the world seeking a better life will have an impact on the environment. Deal with it.

Congratulations to Boeing for being America's aircraft builder. The President has never flown on a foreign built aircraft, and Lord hope, he never will! However, the new 777X would have been a more future proof technology choice. Don't believe the crap about the power generation. The engines and APU's could easily be upgraded.

The problem is we in the US don't test a person's character before they are admited. Only identity quotas. We let in friend and foe alike, and their immediate family. The practice is toxic. The west is a Judeo-Christian culture. Those who enter must embrace it. Even the left leaning Angela Merkel has admitted that multiculturalism has failed. To directly answer your question. Yes.

The Rockefeller's are selling, not giving their stock away. They made a dirty profit! They will have carbon on their hands forever! I am happy to be a buyer. Stock prices are low. Dividends are solid. They are excellent investments. The benefits to the economy of cheap oil outweight the negatives 3 to 1. America loves cheap gas. We have all had $200 per month raise! I used it to buy a bigger car. You treehuggers can go bugger off.
