This new reality is easier to understand when we realize that in China corruption often results in execution while in the US it has become accepted practice and the mechanism by which elected officials who act against the public interest manage to get re-elected.

Power from fossil resources is the most expensive form yet those profiting from the pollution need only hand over a small portion of their proceeds to the likes of Sen.
