"The European Community istalking about a half-cent levy on each kilowatt- hour of fossil fuels to raise $55 million a year to protect the rain forests, and other direct subsidies may be possible, he said."

I would gladly pay it.
Hey Trump, I'm going solar. You can kiss my hairy ass.

Sadly, the money collected will be very likely paid to useless bureaucrats and none will go to actually preserving rainforests.

Got that right. It would be more effective to ban imports from burned rainforests or tax the shit out of them so that burning rain forests is not a good business model.

Agreed 100%. And also ban use of palm oil, which a short while ago was to be environmental savior (NATURAL! GREEN! RENEWABLE!) but now it turns out that palm plantations are destroying rainforests. Palm oil example also shows that environmental friendliness claims have to be heavily scrutinized.

The Earths Equatorial rain-forest deforestation is the number ONE Global calamity. And the Global Warming retards are only there to serve to keep secret the grand scale of the destruction and the ramification that it is having on earths climate and how it impacts tropical weather patterns. i.e Hurricane Season.

Do you even know what methylmercury poisoning is?

I don't. I have heard of mercury poisoning, but not methyl mercury poisoning.

And that is why your opinion does not count. It is based on ignorance. If you knew and understood exactly what methylmercury poisoning is, you would realize how incredibly stupid it is to be pro-coal.

Coal power plants release many pollutants. These pollutants enter the atmosphere and rain down on the land, the ocean, rivers, and lakes. Some of these pollutants enter the food supply, particularly seafood. For example, tuna fish used to be a very healthy food that children loved. Now tuna fish contains methylmercury and causes many health problems in children, adults, and even birth defects in embryos.

This problem is caused entirely by coal power plants. The coal industry benefits from Trump's policies, but other industries including the fishing industry suffers far more than the coal industry benefits. Again, it's a net loss and that's not including all the resulting economic costs from birth defects, health problems, and loss of productivity from sick workers. And of course, we're not even weighing in the human suffering because that doesn't have a dollar assessment.

Fish is suppose to be a healthy food, but today it's poisonous. There is NO level of methylmercury that is safe.

Holy shit. I am anti coal, anti oil, anti fossil fuels, and anti anything that causes pollution.
I only drive hybrids and electric cars. They will be powered by the solar panels I am buying.
I successfully convinced many friends and acquaintances to go hybrid and electric. They are all happy and thankful.
ExxonMobil hates me. Arabs hate me. The Sierra Club loves me.
So, Dan, when are you getting an electric car?

I have never lived more than ten miles away from my job in my entire life. I never fly private air. I've used mass transit for at least a fourth of my working life. I have always used small fuel efficient cars. My family vacations within the continental US.

Tax somebody else.

When my current car is no longer drivable. It's not environmentally sound to buy a new car, even an electric one, when you have an already good car. Did you not see that episode of Adam Ruins Everything?

Quit your sarcasm and answer the question. Now that you know about methylmercury poisoning, are you still pro-coal? Can you see how making one industry more profitable can make many other industries less profitable when the favored industry is simply cost shifting? Do the math.
