While I'm not a troll by any means, the level of hostility and such has led me to feel it would be a good idea to apologize to everyone for having wasted their time with a ridiculous inquiry. Trolling was never my intention, but it appears I may have done so unintentionally by asking to be informed by people that are experts of many fields, and intelligent and well educated, so you all have what apology I can offer. And I'm quite serious. I don't think I can really say anymore, so I'll leave it at that, link my client to this article, and let him judge for himself.
Link your client to this article? So he can see how you throw him under the bus with your comments? I'm not sure allowing him to see this "hostility" will help in any way unless your goal is to insult him. I wouldn't do that to a client, it's unprofessional, and I especially wouldn't do it to a FRIEND.
I would rather have (minor) damage to the environment than to continue to pay Hundreds of Billions of dollars a year to people who hate our guts and will kill after we (inadvertently) burn some of their holy books (despite our president's gracious apology)..
I didn't realize Canadians hated us so much. It would be helpful if you actually knew where our oil comes from, the largest exporter of oil to the US is Canada, followed by Mexico. If we spent all the money we do on our "oil wars" on renewable technology we wouldn't be so worried about oil exports. It's not about oil, it's about making men rich, oil is just a means to an end.
