Surely you must be joking!?
There might be some arguing that USSR never was Communist in the true sense and all that, but that aside, its former leaders weren't exactly anti-industrialists.
No. I meant that the overreaction to Global Warming has us overly tizzified. Hysterical.
Ban cars, limit air travel, in the EU, because an apparently plausible scientific theory has it so? Where's the tree-planting festivals? All the reaction is about taking stuff away from people.
I didn't mean anything so much about Russia. From what I heard back when they had just joined the group of eight industrialized nations, their economy wasn't very integrated with the west. Now China is building/buying so much raw materiel, to build stuff and export it...raw prices are rising.
