The pork spending in the name of the environment has been legendary. All the corps are feeding on the issue at this point. They all have some green product or green initiative and they all get big grants from the feds for it.

None of that pesky, problematic free market unpredictability to deal with, it's all guaranteed, sweet, sweet taxpayer money!

Yes, but this is a major reason why this story is being promoted - because it has to do with man's (well, actually, it's mostly western societies that must pay for this) constant and continuing evil raping of the nice, fluffy planet. Don't you know that everything these days has to reference the environment otherwise it's unsustainable and therefore doubleplus ungood?

1 + 1 = 3, for large values of 1.
