Son of Thunder: Arguably, concern over the earth is elitist, something people can afford to spend their time on when every other need is met.Dang. If that's the case, how elitist are you if you have the time to be concerned about what to CALL concern over the earth?

Steve Zodiac: Doesn't matter what you call it, it will be regarded as elitist whatever you name it. Kind of like the furor over what to name special needs kids. Whatever you call them, that will become the new insult used anytime someone wants to imply vast stupidity.

"I'm tired of these self-righteous environmentalists, these whitebourgeois liberals who think the only thing wrong with this country isthere aren't enough bicycle paths, people trying to make the world safefor their Volvos. There is nothing wrong with the planet. Nothing wrongwith the planet. The planet is fine. The people are (bleep) --difference, difference. The planet is fine. Compared to the people, theplanet is doing great. It's been here four and a half billion years. Didyou ever think about the arithmetic? The planet has been here four and ahalf billion years. We've only been engaged in heavy industry for alittle more than 200 years.Two hundred years versus four and a half billion, and we have theconceit to think that somehow we're a threat, that somehow we're going toput in jeopardy this beautiful little blue-green ball that's justa-floatin' around the sun? The planet has been through a lot worse thanus, been through all kinds of things worse than us, been throughearthquakes, volcanoes, plate tectonics, continental drift, solar flares,sunspots, magnetic storms, the magnetic reversal of the poles, hundreds ofthousands of years of bombardment by comets and asteroids and meteors,worldwide floods, tidal waves, worldwide fires, erosion, cosmic rays,recurring ice ages, and we think some plastic bags and some aluminum cansare going to make a difference? The planet isn't going anywhere. We are!We're going away. "
