Richie Rude Signs With Red Bull
Caffeinated sugar water? Just like coke, pepsi, sprite, most bottled iced tea, etc? You could even classify most drinks at starbucks as nothing more than caffeinated sugar water as well. Do you ever drink any of these things? None of this stuff is "good" for you, just like beer, or wine or shots aren't 'good' for you. But none of these things are very harmful either when had in moderation. Point is if you are against anything unhealthy thats great. But don't single out energy drinks and being markedly worse than the other products mentioned above.

Richie Rude Signs With Red Bull
@Gamsjaga: If that's the case that's great. Maybe more should. But I'm not going to disparage anyone from taking a redbull sponsorship. Its funny, Neko Mulally gets a sponsorship from a beer company and everyone thinks its the greatest thing ever, yet people shit on the energy drink companies. Alcohol is arguably much more harmful that caffeine.

@Gasket-Jeff: How many times are you going to make the same comment about taxes while ignoring the second half of what I write about using that tax revenue to subsidize cleaner energy, thus making those sources cheaper? Taxing the the fossil fuels is only one part of the equation. There are many ways to produce energy. Fossil fuel is only our primary source of energy because its currently the cheapest. If you change that (through taxation), then something else will emerge as a primary source of energy. We will use what is cheap and companies will be forced to invest in those other cheaper sources if they want to be competitive. Its not a change that can be made overnight as many things need to change, infrastructure needs to be built, power plants need to be converted etc. It will be a gradual change but there is no reason we cannot greatly reduce our fossil fuel consumption over time.

@Gasket-Jeff: Did you even read what I wrote? Yes taxing makes it hard to innovate, which is why you tax fossil fuels. You conveniently forgot about the second part of the equation which is using those tax revenues to subsidize clean energy sources and research. If you tax one industry (fossil fuels) and invest/subsidize another (cleaner sources of energy) with those tax revenues, it will make the cleaner sources of energy more profitable, and fossil fuels more expensive, which will drive and encourage innovation in cleaner sources.

Trump has openly talked about opening federal lands to drilling as part of his energy plan. Trump won UT in a landslide. So if it happens they really don't have anyone to blame but themselves.

@Gasket-Jeff: You don't think the industries and the politicians are to blame for this? Shit yes they are. We will always have some reliance on fossil fuels but there are countless ways that through policy the country could greatly reduce its reliance on fossil fuels. A heavy carbon tax along with bigger subsidies and investments in clean energy technology such as solar, wind, electric cars, etc would go a long way. But why don't we do that? Because the fossil fuel industry has the politicians in their back pocket through their massive donations and lobbying efforts. And this particular case may not be Trumps fault, but don't expect shit like this to stop under his watch. He's openly talked about gutting the Environmental Protection Agency and named a climate change denier to lead it. He said countless times he sees environmental regulations as wasteful and that part of his plan is to open up federal land to drilling. He appointed the fucking CEO or Exxon as secretary of state. Last I checked UT voted overwhelmingly for Trump so if this shit goes bad for them perhaps they should pay more attention to what the candidates are saying before they cast a vote.

@atxgravity052: it sure reads like he's going to be racing again. Because it mentions all three focusing on WC DH. They follows by saying they will all be also going Redbull events, filming, etc. Where the press releases last year when they joined trek said Dan would be building, doing events, and some select enduro events.
