Why can a lobbyist introduce legislation into a State Legislature? There is something seriously wrong with that.
You're using all percentages, which are simply relative numbers. What if the real emissions in China was so large that 1.3%of it actually corresponded to 25% of the USA's real emissions?
You're forgetting the fact that the majority of House members reside in gerrymandered districts and are impervious to being voted out. THAT is the fundamental problem with Congress.
I use Pixelmator. $29.95. Haven't looked back.
I have a very good friend that worked for one of these sub-contractors in Rockford, IL. Heâ(TM)s a brilliant engineer. He told me about the enomous pressure Boeing put on them to complete their work by their deadline. Boeing constantly threatened the sub-contractor with fines. He spent many, many months working 70-80 hour weeks. Getting called into 2am meetings. Careers flamed out because of the stress. Substance abuse ran rampant. Families suffered. I hope no one gets hurt or killed flying on the 787. I hope the shareholders get handed a big bill to remedy the teething issues plaguing what was once a promising breakthrough design.
