Re: FPR Again!
Posted to Emissions Forum on 6/12/2012 2 Replies


I am a law abiding citizen (well, I might accidentally break the speed limit once in a great while), and I intend to comply with any law, ridiculous or otherwise.

My (possibly misguided) goal is to open a reasonable, intelligent dialog with influential members of the policy-making pool, perhaps people such as yourself, and convince them that their logic is fatally flawed. I don't claim to have the slightest clue as to what types of conversations go on over there; I can only see the 'official stance' from my point of view as an outsider.

I realize that I have a temper problem, and am prone to emotional outbursts from time to time. I pray that my own shortcomings don't cloud my arguments concerning the fundamental logical flaws in the FPR; I may suffer slightly from the vice known as conceit, but I firmly believe that my specific arguments ARE logically complete, and I have pledged not to rest until I have received a logically complete response to those arguments.

If that response is either absent, or absent of logical merit, I will find myself forced into a professional corner, and I refuse to die without a fight. The exact nature of that fight is not clear to me yet, but my promise to everyone reading this is that it will not consist of idle complaints and threats.
