And I am certainly not surprised that a leftist enviro-wacko would
make such a remark as yours.  You shouldn't spend money addresses a
problem that you don't know exists.  You should first find out if
there is a problem, and then actually address the problem should you
find that there is one.  If we went around trying to solve every
liberal fantasy problem that is touted (first the healthcare a daycare crisis...) we'd be even more broke than we are
