    To think that once I sympathised with the green party and their focus on ecological preservation. And now I notice they are represented by such complete idiots with a degree in fear-mongering and ignorance.

    "Enjoy".

    Are any required? [zz)]

    Wait, did you say you once sympathized with them?

    Well, I agreed with them over their conservation stance, and towards control of polluting industries. I also agreed over their recycling issues etc. But now over GM and Nanotech, they just seem to be appealing to the lowest common denominator. It is ridiculous the "rational" inquiry they called has NO NANOSCIENTISTS in it.

    Speaking of being blinded by science. They don't seem to even know that science existed.

    This Caroline Lucas obviously has no idea of what she is talking about when it comes to physics and the actual technology...incredibly ignorant.

    However, I think that any new stuff that we ingest, apply to our skin, etc., should have to gain approval...nanotech, traditional chemical methods, or otherwise, before they can be put on the market.

    And don't observe one person and assume that she represents an entire party...does John McCain or rick santorum represent the entire Republican party?

    Correct, except that as far as her job description says, she "represents" every Green voter in the south east of england to the European Parliament... And she has significant clout into the new inquiry process... truning it perhaps into a bit of a show trial.

    FZ+, this is why I have NEVER supported any environmentalist movement. Virtually all are devoid of actual science and are instead based on irrational fear of technology.

    Reducing pollution and conserving resources are a good thing - but environmentalist groups do nothing useful toward those ends.

    How do you think we got pollution controls in the first place? How do you think that continue to be protected, in spite of those who would like to see them gone?
