In the absence of a price signal

Gasoline consumption rises. Four-fold in 12 years in Venezuela, according to El Nacional. Please keep that in mind next time President Hugo Chavez stands on principle to block a climate-change resolution.

    Y el subsidio a la gasolina, donde me lo vas a dejar? Y el gasoducto trans-Amazonico? Y el hecho de que el tipo es el lider supremo de un petro-estado?

    Only imbeciles and the mentally impaired can buy into Chavez’s alleged concern for the environment. But hang on, isn’t the green fraternity and the community of global warming eco-warriors and alarmists squarely behind Chavez?

      Alek: talking to people like they are idiots is a bad way to convince them of anything, and it’s not something I tolerate in my house. Please tone it down.

        Setty, your house, your rules. Accepted.

        Just a bit of a clarification though. As I once said to FT, please hit the dictionary, and read the definition. Nothing wrong, in my opinion, with expressing my understanding of the mental capacity of some people.

        As per convincing them, whoever told you that was my intention? I feel much better exposing them, for it’s not me the one who needs to deal with reality here…
