    They obviously believe that taking care of our environment is important and, worse, they are using a model (renewable energy credits) that's similar to that used for the Kyoto Treaty. How can anyone trust a man who apparently believes that humans contribute to global warming. LOL.

    FOXBOROUGH - To the fans who brave frigid, blustery nights to cheer for the Patriots at Gillette Stadium, it might feel as if there is enough bone-chilling wind gusting overhead to power a small city.

    But today, the Kraft Group will announce that Midwestern wind will fuel the Gillette Stadium lighthouse, the 612 blazing light bulbs shining down on the field, the scoreboards, and more than 40 concession stands that are juiced with enough power during each game to run 2,269 households for a day.

    The Patriots signed a four-year deal to buy renewable-energy credits from distant windmills to match all their game-day electricity needs, the latest example of the business community's push to make environmentalism a staple of corporate responsibility.

    ...

    "This not only reduces our carbon footprint, but could help build awareness that other organizations have an opportunity to make a similar choice for the environment," (the Patriots' president, Jonathan Kraft, said in a statement).

    "Carbon credits" = the stupidest idea ever created. If you really want to fix "global warming" then DO it. It's obviously more benificial for companies to say "Look we donated money to the cause... now let us do what we want."

    And I hate this stereotype that Conservatives and Republicans don't care for the environment. Just because we don't buy into the whole "OH NO EVERYONE IS GOING TO DIE!" hysteria doesn't mean we do our best to make our planet pretty. littering SHOULD be fined ... not because it's going to create a hurricane, just because its ugly.

    ."Exactly, this is what Al Gore and Pretty Little Leonardo DiCaprio do, they can still fly over to a cookout in Tim Buck Two on their Private Jets but they want me and you to ride a bike.

    Carbon Credits are for the Looney Rich Liberals and Big Business, Horse and Wagons are for me and you.

    Hillary's health care is the same thing, the Rich Liberal Loons have their own private doctor, you and I have get in line to visit the Government Butcher

    If we elect an Obama or a Hillary America will have it's First Dictator.

    Carbon credits ultimatly get bought from those in poverty (think third world poverty) to bribe them to reamin impvoverished. Great.

    Style over substance , meaningless.

    Yeah, but let me see Al Gore riding a bike. Or walking down the street. Or carry the groceries. Please. Just one photo. Right now Al is invisible, hidden by the jetstream of his private conveyances, his fleet of SUVs, his private helicopters, his private jets, his household running at 1000% (ten times) the amount of the average American household.

    And the big reason the Loons all kiss his a$s is because he is a Sore Losing Bush Hater just like them, don't ever trust anybody that has won the Nobel Prize only Dangerous Left Wing Screwballs get anywhere near that thing.

    Time Magazine does not mean "best" (or "man" for that matter) when they choose their man of the year. I think they merely mean the person who most clearly occupied center stage.

    As far as the Nobel Peace Prize, I think it's awarded for specific deeds and even bad people sometimes do good things, but let's remember that people who many conservatives liked often won, including Kim Dae Jung, Fedrick DeKlerk, the Dalai Lama, Mother Theresa, Henry Kissinger, and Lech Walesa. It's an award for specific good deeds.

    Yassar Arafat got the Nobel Prize because he was a big time "Jew Hater"

    Have you noticed lately that a lot of Left Wing Democrats are turning into Anti Semites.

    ... and they do it wearing their "cool" Che Gueverra black tee shirts. Nothing like a dead commie to stir the ol' blood.

    I cannot wait until the day comes when it gets exposed that those companies selling "carbon credits" are just taking money from clients and doing absolutely nothing in return.

    "Yeah... yeah... give us $100,000 and you can use all the electricity you want... we'll offset that usage by uh... by... by building a windmill someday..!!"

    "Carbon credits" sounds like the 16th century Church selling indulgences, "fast track" tickets to get to heaven. Like the failed policies of 400 years ago, based on scare tactics and preying on peoples' gullibility, selling "carbon credits" too shall be exposed in due time as one of the biggest scams of modern times.'
