It's all about money, and that's the truth!

Needs in balance

"greenhouse gases" in the air (mainly carbon dioxide) are what cause global warming. The greenhouse effect is not a good thing, it keeps heat in the earths atmosphere, this in turn does damage such as melting the ice caps, etc.

It's all about money, and that's the truth! The reason big companies want to ignore global warming, or down play it, or pretend it is not happening at all, is because the processes they have to do (in order to make their money) cause CO2 emissions.

They do not want to admit what they are doing is bad for the environment, because being "earth friendly" costs too much. The bottom line is, these big companies are concerned about their bottom line, it is all about money and most companies will do whatever they have to in order to save a dime, or make a dime, and that is the sad truth.

Barry's Response - That's where government steps in, Josie. Ideally, they work WITH companies to arrive at solutions which are both profitable sustainable.

We find that by working in partnership/consensus, trying to best fit the needs of everyone involved, enables progress with minimal harmful side effects. An Environmental Impact Assessment is a study of the effects of an industrial development, takes many disciplines into account and can often be thousands of pages in length.
