is not given, it's taken. You can nearly always count on getting responsibility without authority. Also, many of the comments here have applicability to large corporations. personally, I prefer small companies, WAY, WAY, better. Usually there's far fewer a55h0l3s, there's more freedom, and less political gamesmanship.

DuPont made a pile off the new alternatives.

Irrelevant. Kinda implies that an alternative energy economy would be really fruitful and prosperous.

The "recovery" started happening even before change of CFCs implemented,

Citation? Hrumpf. The data I 've reviewed had much larger error bars early on, that got smaller, and the recovery was signficantly above the noise.

Hilary would be the first woman POTUS, and Bill would be the first First Man. She's a credible candidate, if she draws sufficient primary wins 'because she's a woman, and it's time', well, so be it.

What y'all are missing is the suppliers know exactly what the fluorocarbons are when formulating, what the unkown is, that is exhautive to test for, is that in a fire, all sorts of other compounds may be present, and ...they're on fire! Hence, lots of transformation may take place that are redonculously difficult to predict. Get over it. Most of the compounds get flushed out if the firefighters drink enough beer.

The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all your time.
