Europe and North America have a longer history of pollution. I remember during the 70's the research showed that average North America had 40 times the impact on the environment as the average Indian. At the time the prevailing thoery of development was that of W. W. Rostow who suggested that third world countries would / should follow the same path as developed countries.The problem is they haven't even adopted 20th century pollution control practices.
I stand corrected, "I.Q. of a grapefruit" it is, sorry if my mistake caused people to misinterpret your point. They spell labour with a U in my country as well, but I've got better things to to than argue with spell check. It's still a broad brush your using, but as you say, we all get what we deserve eventually."Likes to work for a living": The blue collar workers that left all had their union to thank for their job loss. They dropped out of school had no skills and blame everyone around them for their problems. Packed up ran after jobs wherever they could find them out west. Too proud to take labour (and we spell it with a U in this country) jobs here so they are now filled by immigrants. I have absolutely no sympathy for these folks. "Like to work for a living" my ass. Lazy, uneducated, want to hide behind a union. They deserve what they get.
And I said: "the IQ of a grapefruit".
