This school cannot be very bright as they have bought into the "green agenda." Will Al Gore fly in on one of his private jets to serve them a lovely tofu and grass clippings lunch? Shades of the Hunger Games-------

Darren, you reveal yourself as not being "very bright." Dim actually. The rest of the world is racing ahead in alternative energy. In 2007, China generated 17% of its electricity from green sources. Today, the percentage is much higher. China also has the largest wind resources in the world and is the world's largest producer of solar panels. So while backward people like you are dissing green energy, nations around the world such as China are laughing up their sleeves at the US.

You'll also be shocked, Darren, to find out the world is not flat! It's ignorant people like you that hold our country back as the rest of the world leaves us in the dust. Turn off Fox News and wake up to the reality of our world!

Kudo's to the both of you for letting Darren have it! I couldn't have said it better.
