But it has no effect at all according to republicans so all is well, eat, drink
and burn. Meanwhile I've saved over $20,000 by driving a hybrid
for the last 8 years and putting solar panels on my roof. Oh, and put much less
carbon in the atmosphere too.
screwdriver,did you read the article? The US and Germany were the only
countries to reduce their carbon production, while China, with its policies more
closely aligned with the liberals in this country, is the world's worst
carbon polluter. Yet all the climate control accords the dems and
"the sky is falling" alarmists want us to sign put NO restrictions
whatsoever on the Chinese. And you see no problem with that?Tell
me, how much deforrestation occured to get the nickel and other materials for
your hybrid? How many heavy metals were used in its production? How much carbon
did the Chinese produce to manufacture your solar panels?
@lost Chinas policies are more closely alined with liberals? how do your
Tolstoy,big, centralized governent, diminution of individual freedoms and
rights (Obamacare, heavy-handed regs, redistribution of wealth, etc.) Surprised
you would have needed that pointed out to you.
Actually, I think if Screwdriver can blanket blame Repuglicans, DC is entitled
to blanket blaming Democraps.
Let us take the name calling out of this discussion. Firstly the evidence is
clear that the temperature is increasing, Sea level is rising and burnt fossil
fuel is increasing in the atmosphere in the form of Carbon Dioxide.Let us consider which people are producing the CO2: -Countrymetric tons
per personUSA 18.812% GDP exportsAustralia18.720% GDP
exportsGermany 9.8China 7.4 30% GDP exportsIndia
2.1Climate change is nothing to do with politics it is about
protecting our children’s future. In fact seeing all children are equal
in Heavenly Father’s eye, why should we have the right to burn more than
our fair share and reduce the life expectancy of a child from Tonga or any other
low emmitting country?So it comes down to how will we reduce the
fossil fuel we are burning as an individual? If it is to be it is up to me (and
Allisdair almost got it right. Temperatures have trended upward for 150 years as
planet earth has recovered from the Little Ice Age. And atmospheric carbon
dioxide has increased quite a bit in the last 50 years (although it remains
significantly lower than optimal levels for plant life). Have you noted that
there hasn't been any warming for 16 years, according to the UK Met office
(hardly a stronghold of climate deniers)? Have you noticed that the calamitous
predictions made by NASA's James Hansen have failed, such as New York
City's West Side Highway being permanently under water by now? Or that the
computer models that are the sole basis for the AGW assertions (they don't
rise to the level of theory for reasons that would be wasted in this forum)
continue to diverge from reality? Sorry to burst your bubble, but it's all
propaganda from that bastion (not) of integrity and truth, the United Nations.
They're not trying to save the planet. They're after your wallet and,
ultimately, your liberty.
Who cares about the CO2. The scientists don't even know what happens to a
lot of it.See "NASA hopes to track disappearing CO2" in the
DN. The interesting fact that is pointed out by NASA is that humans accounted
for 2% of carbon emissions.Plus, CO2 is not a significant insulator
in the atmosphere. The problem is that we can't tax water vapor because
very little is produced. See "Colo. cloud study may lift insights into
climate" in the DN.
Who's trolling pages?
To "xscribe" apparently you are because your comment has nothing to do
with the actual topic at hand.
