“Of course he won't get credit for saving the planet because even if the "chicken little menatity" of the President is close to right, what this is proposing will essentially do nothing to stop it. Since the US produces about 15% of the CO2, reducing this by 25% will be a drop in the bucket as to what is needed. This country must put pressure on the rest of the world to cut emmissions also or any American effort will be in vain.”

“I have been wondering why some comments are going through FB and hoping it wouldn't come to this. It's especially sad that Huffpost didn't announce it and let us know what was happening. It's the end of an era (sort of) and pretty sad. The comment section was the unique attraction of Huffpost - sometimes more interesting than the article. I guess they got too big or something, but they'll lose readership to be sure.”

“Bit of an undestatement there I think. The news reporting of the HP is verging on woeful. The coments section however gave it a relevance that no other publication really has. And they want to throw their ace card away no doubt in pursuit of the almighty dollar.”

“If Obama leads this charge, it will be his greatest legacy. It will be step 1 in saving the planet. It may cost the economy a few points in the short run, but it will be worth it to save the economy the effects of floods, droughts and hurricanes in the future. Development of sustainable energy sources will be a huge boost to the economy, as well. It's a win, win, win.”

We are at the point where private conversations are fodder for anyone who wants to exploit them. In the USA, we now have to look over our shoulders before phoning, speaking, writing. It's time for the US to offer Snowden a deal, give him probation and let him come home. He has a lot to offer this country.”
