Apple Steve Jobs writes about Apple's efforts to become a more enironmental friendly company. "Apple has been criticized by some environmental organizations for not being a leader in removing toxic chemicals from its new products, and for not aggressively or properly recycling its old products. Upon investigating Apple's current practices and progress towards these goals, I was surprised to learn that in many cases Apple is ahead of, or will soon be ahead of, most of its competitors in these areas. Whatever other improvements we need to make, it is certainly clear that we have failed to communicate the things that we are doing well." Among other things, Apple will introduce LEDs in displays to Macs this year.

That's why all the REDS have turned GREEN. The red-religion failed, now the new religion is the Green-religion. And if you don't agree with their latest thesis (global warming created by humans) you will be shot!

I don't know where the tie up between communism and the environmental movement is, but I can assure you that having been involved with the environmental movement, not everyone is a Trotskite or Marxist - I'm a libertarian, but at the same time I work towards not forced conservation, but people choosing to do the right thing.

The issue with global warming; it isn't debated about whether it is actually happening - because the statistics point to that very fact. The issue is how much of it is due to human interaction.

This is where things get funky; the issue which people on the deluded side forget is this; we're not saying that there isn't natural climate variation (which is what the article you pointed to is trying to claim), what we debate is the fact that human interaction has made that natural climate variation a lot more extreme had it not been for the our roll in the cycle.

Yes, the climate would have changed, but not at the extremes of which we're seeing now - and due to the lag between the event and natures catching up to those changes, we're seeing it have disastrous consequences in terms of animal species and impact on those in the third world.
