Environmentalists are crushing private industries with ridiculous regulations. Some regulations are good but they take it over the top. We need offshore drilling to lower the price of gasoline here in the US to stay competitive with international countries. If we're constantly concerned about the green fire dragon frog we're on a lose out civilization to a frog!

"Ridiculous Regulations"

You want to lower the price of gasoline in the united states, now you will laugh at this but actually do the research, name one time where increased oil production in the united states has lead to a large impact on US prices of gasoline which do not appear in the global market as a whole.

Also you talk about these ridiculous regulations, I would like to point out that because of deregulation done wrong hundreds of thousands of west Virginians are without drinking water because of a chemical spill that the corperation is not being punished for [1].

The regulations (what little there are) are not intended to prevent climate change but instead to prevent corperations acidently poisining the water supply of hundreds of thousands of people or destroying the ecosystem of the gulf of mexico.

Ultimate Impact of Climate Change.

Climate change WILL:

Destroy the planets food supply [2],
Cause tempreture to rise by up to 3 degrees worldwide destroying ecosystems worldwide [3],
Cause many coastal cities (New York, London, Hong Cong, ect) to be flooded by 2100 [4]

We are not doing enough to stop this not far to much.
