James Hansen: Why I must speak out about climate change
Okay, I'll let you know what part of the world I'm from so that you can judge me from that. LOL. What does it even have anything to do with me saying what I say? I sure do look like a young man to you but do you know what kind of a man you look like to others? Not so good trying to discredit someone simply by saying that he is young and "not from the WEST" :)) Let's get back to business. So I read this on Wiki: "Agenda 21 is a 300-page document divided into 40 chapters that have been grouped into 4 sections: Section I: Social and Economic Dimensions is directed toward combatting poverty, especially in developing countries, changing consumption patterns, promoting health, achieving a more sustainable population, and sustainable settlement in decision making. Section II: Conservation and Management of Resources for Development Includes atmospheric protection, combating deforestation, protecting fragile environments, conservation of biological diversity (biodiversity), control of pollution and the management of biotechnology, and radioactive wastes. Section III: Strengthening the Role of Major Groups includes the roles of children and youth, men, women, NGOs, local authorities, business and workers and strengthening the role of indigenous peoples, their communities, and farmers. Section IV: Means of Implementation: implementation includes science, technology transfer, education, international institutions and financial mechanisms." Since you mentioned it first, I guess you're familiar with it. This might actually give me a reference to a scientific study of the non-politically loaded kind. So can you help us point out where in this document or documents alike that global warming is a scam to make the elite richer? Please! I'm from Vietnam, by the way!

Hi Anna, you commented too much.. Anyway, I hope the next Vietnamese generation will achieve much more! This story is more sad than inspiring to me. Just to say.

Van Jones: The economic injustice of plastic
First, I am very confused by the way you use the word "you". Seem like you are trying to lump me into somethings else for your argument. Also this comment showed that you haven't stop a minute to listen at all, just all the same bla bla bla ...I read all your comments, not just the original. Anyway, I love to try one last time. OK. There is nobody getting cancer by using plastic although some plastic products in developing country are actually poisonous due to their insufficient local regulation but that is not relevant in this talk now. Here is how people get cancer that associate with plastic. It is when they are living near production plant or recycling plant that release chemicals in the process. And those people are in China or some even poorer country. And those chemicals hit those people better than when they have to travel an ocean to hit others. It is that simple.

Van Jones: The economic injustice of plastic
@ Adam J. I love talking with you only if you stop being so political loaded. Capitalism is great, I know that. But it does not mean it is perfect. And if someone are trying to fix it, also doesn't mean he is communist. You are entitled to your opinion. I think I am done with your political mindset. One advice for you. Stop assuming that you know more than other like me. I am just not interested in arguing with you.
