RE, they are NOT going to stop drilling until we-the-people MAKE THEM stop drilling.

We'll make them stop drilling when we run out of money to buy and burn the gas.

RE


 


If that is the only way to "make" (i.e. coerce these crooks to stop pollutiing), then we are toast. You always forget that MINOR DETAIL that these bastards are SUBSIDIZED.


When, and if, they actually have to price their product WITHOUT welfare queen subsidies, they will certainly go out of business. But you know God Damned good and well that THAT is NOT going to happen any time soon.

WHERE do you get the idea that the military of the USA, the greatest consumer of fossil fuels in our country, is not going to be able to "afford" to buy fossil fuels? It's NOT GONNA HAPPEN. RE, Even if all the rest of us are doing without due to high prices, the fossil fuel industry will CONTINUE to "profit" through their GOD DAMNED SUBSIDIES and WELFARE QUEEN MILITARY SALES! What part of that do you have difficulty understanding, Godfader?

In a just world, the courts will be the way forward to MAKE (i.e. shut the  fossil fuelers down) them stop polluting. Your way will NEVER stop them. Those bastards haven't marketed a profitable product for AT LEAST 30 years! They are STILL THERE because of SUBSIDIES, not because of a "competitive" product.

THE FOLLOWING is a step in the  right direction (that Trump and friends will do everything they can to stop - if they succeed, we are all DEAD!).

Oregon Court: Banning Fossil Fuel Facilities is Constitutional
 


An Oregon appeals court ruled that restricting fossil fuel infrastructure is constitutional, overruling a lower appeals court decision. It's an important victory in the fight against climate change, and for local self-determination, says Nicholas Caleb of the Center for Sustainable Economy

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
