In all seriousness, you need to wake ... up. I know you're all probably fifteen year old narcissists (you're not?) who don't give a damn about the unforeseen consequences of changing the energy use of 6 billion people (either because your adolescent brain can't extrapolate beyond the now or because you're banking on the genius of mankind which has never ever created a flawed solution to a previous problem. ever.), but shouldn't you at least stop and consider the alternative: what if your wrong? That is, what if your tiny project with tiny consequences/byproducts gets multiplied to create 6 billion people's worth of consequences and byproducts? Not only have you screwed your friends and family, your children and their children, but you've also screwed billions of other people you don't even know.
If I'm wrong the consequences sure as hell won't be as bad as if your wrong. It's this type of idiocy that gives America its bad name, ignoring the subject completely, but at least you threw in some pretty pictures there. The perspective of this board only makes sense on an economic level, and even then, completely shortsighted. There are other perspectives to consider and none of you have given a thought towards any one of them.

What is this "other perspectives" you speak of? Jesus is coming soon and we're all going to die anyway, what else is there to think about?

Really? What part of "miracle cars which saved us from pestilence create the global warming crisis" did you not understand? I guess in 30 years when all our clean water supplies are contaminated by acid from trillions of old, corroding batteries, it'll be totally unrelated. Or when our landscape is peppered with windmills that completely alter wind and weather patterns, it'll also be totally unrelated. It's not like Ford and company said "yea, all that exhaust is gonna really screw up the environment, but ah f*#k it."

You're also on this board, so either this encompasses you, or you've just smoovly pulled a silk. Look, some people don't believe humans could have affected global temperatures, so global warming is just a myth. However, I tend to appreciate that we as humans can have a significant impact on the world, so we should tread very carefully... especially given our track record of manure piles, carbon-reliance, over-farming that led to a dust bowl, nuclear waste/Chernobyl, etc. If we're so powerful as to have caused the end of the world through global warming, then we're also powerful enough to cause the end of the world through whatever half-assed solutions we slap together without enough thought.

Furthermore, you calling me "short-sighted" for wanting to make sure we don't make a bigger mess fixing our current mess is truly rich. I guess you can always say "Oh man, we didn't know!" when your solutions drive us off a different, unforeseen cliff.

Yea, sorry, we fifty-year old conservative religious fanatics who only care about screwing the planet as much as possible before Jesus comes tend to be an ornery bunch.

I agree with what you are saying here but if you go back to the quotes I've listed you can see that you've already given up. And why? Because now someone is "commanding" you to make the world a better place? I guess you may not agree with how they are going about it, but I never said I do either. Now my question to you is, environmentally (and not just from a capitalist view), how would you make the world a better place?

To me it's quite simple, I take care of my area and build relationships with others around. In those relationships, I hope to be of some influence that helps them better their area, and likewise, I hope to learn from those relationships to better my own area.

My issue is very much regarding Government Control. This to me is the biggest problem and the greatest potential to ruin the environment as we know it.

As for you point on Military spending...like everyone, I would love to spend zero on the military, unfortunately, that is not a safe reality. It is clear that we have individuals who are flat out evil. Sometimes, these individuals get together to form a mass...they then go out and cause problems amongst peace loving nations. In some cases, they simply hide out in their own boarders and abuse the very people they are suppose to protect.

America has shown over and over, that they defend freedom, when ever and where ever it is needed.

As it is, the enemy is not and has not ever shown itself to be willing to talk through it's hatred...rather they manipulate their hatred and destroy lives...for that matter, one could argue that they also destroy the environment as this is the least of their worries. They simply want power.

Now when it comes to the issues that we see common in Africa and other parts of the world with regards to food...we know that throwing money at the problem is wrong, if that is all we do.

We must provide resources and relationships, while also be mentally and emotionally strong enough to help those who want the help and to not get caught up in enabling those who just want handouts.

In other words, teach these regions how to set up their own economies, how to trade, how to fuel their own survival and ultimate prosperity.

The old saying, give a man a fish and he will eat for a day...teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.

My desire would be to help communities enrich themselves, rather than waste time and money on GCC and other environmental issues through Government intervention.

Truth be known, as much as a Government is needed, the only thing it is and should be there for is National Defense as well as a Police force to stop criminals. Outside of that, it is the responsibility of each of us as individuals to meet the needs of society...be responsible for ourselves, our families, our circle of influence. Then provide support, as private individuals, not as a government for others who are in need to the best of our abilties.

Too many of us, rely on our government to do these things, and we just walk away as if it's not our responsibility anymore.

Government has become the huge entity that is filled with corruption and they are feeding on the emotions of the needy and the emotions it stirs up in others with a guilty conscious.

Now you say that I have a defeatest attitude...but rather to the contrary...what I despise is the manipulation that is used by the GCC and Environmentalist crowd. They are rather defeating and it's a major hot button for me...perhaps it's dealing with my mother issues, who also uses guilt and manipulation and quite frankly it pisses me off.

What I believe is that this crowd has and continues to exagerate the numbers. I don't believe that separating my trash does anything other than waste my time...so I am against recycling. But, as I live this way I am painted as some type of monster.

I happen to like driving a gas guzzler, when I need the added power...I also drive a car that is fairly effecient at some 36 MPG, which serves its purpose.

But much of those decisions are based on financial issues.

So create cars that are efficient and low-cost...why would anyone want to pay more for a "Green" solution, when the regular solution performs just fine?

So there you have it...don't raise prices on standard solutions, but rather offer alternative "Green" solutions that are equally if not more reliable and actually cost less than the standard solution.

Naturally, people would choose to move towards a "Green" solution...at the end of the day, most people make decisions based on the bottom line...not because they are greedy, but because it's the budget that we live under.

BINGO

Most people couldn't sleep at night though, not knowing that IF they screw up -- the government wouldn't bail them out. They have nothing to hang onto, and EXPECT the government to bail them out of any mess, regardless of what caused the mess.

Unemployment, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Food Stamps, Farmers programs, etc....all just government welfare. Add to it the jobs created by having these programs, and you have the masses wanting to be sheeple to the government as they cannot sleep at night with all the "what ifs".

1. (for sake of argument) CO2 emissions cause global warming, a problem which must be solved -->
2. Humans and other animals emit CO2 w/ their every breath, hence human life is a threat to the environment -->
3. Human life, or limitations thereon, must be part of any serious effort to control CO2.

^^^Inexorable logic??? Nah...no way that anyone will ever go there....

hmmmm.....

Quote:
Population control called key to deal

COPENHAGEN: Population and climate change are intertwined but the population issue has remained a blind spot when countries discuss ways to mitigate climate change and slow down global warming, according to Zhao Baige, vice-minister of National Population and Family Planning Commission of China (NPFPC)...

...Many studies link population growth with emissions and the effect of climate change.

"Calculations of the contribution of population growth to emissions growth globally produce a consistent finding that most of past population growth has been responsible for between 40 per cent and 60 percent of emissions growth," so stated by the 2009 State of World Population, released earlier by the UN Population Fund.

...studies have also shown that family planning programs are more efficient in helping cut emissions, citing research by Thomas Wire of London School of Economics that states: "Each $7 spent on basic family planning would reduce CO2 emissions by more than one ton" whereas it would cost $13 for reduced deforestation, $24 to use wind technology, $51 for solar power, $93 for introducing hybrid cars and $131 electric vehicles.
The dystopian possibilities of world-wide governmental control of human breathing extend far beyond economic questions...

global scamming

Quote:
the Moscow-based Institute of Economic Analysis (IEA) issued a report claiming that the Hadley Center for Climate Change based at the headquarters of the British Meteorological Office in Exeter (Devon, England) had probably tampered with Russian-climate data.

The IEA believes that Russian meteorological-station data did not substantiate the anthropogenic global-warming theory.

Analysts say Russian meteorological stations cover most of the country’s territory, and that the Hadley Center had used data submitted by only 25% of such stations in its reports.

Over 40% of Russian territory was not included in global-temperature calculations for some other reasons, rather than the lack of meteorological stations and observations.

The data of stations located in areas not listed in the Hadley Climate Research Unit Temperature UK (HadCRUT) survey often does not show any substantial warming in the late 20th century and the early 21st century.

The HadCRUT database includes specific stations providing incomplete data and highlighting the global-warming process, rather than stations facilitating uninterrupted observations.

On the whole, climatologists use the incomplete findings of meteorological stations far more often than those providing complete observations.

IEA analysts say climatologists use the data of stations located in large populated centers that are influenced by the urban-warming effect more frequently than the correct data of remote stations.

The scale of global warming was exaggerated due to temperature distortions for Russia accounting for 12.5% of the world’s land mass. The IEA said it was necessary to recalculate all global-temperature data in order to assess the scale of such exaggeration.
So...

1) the Hadley Center is only using data from a small fraction of the available Russian stations;
2) the stations which are not used in the temperature survey were not omitted because of a lack of data;
3) the data in stations NOT included in the survey do not show any discernable warming trend;
4) the data included in the survey are from stations located in populated areas which are widely understood to be warmer than non-populated areas.

Let's take another stab at the scientific process per the CRU....

1) Claim hypothesis is proven and beyond question;
2) Cherry pick data to create scarey graphs that will scare the bejesus out of people
3) Fight like hell to keep other people from seeing the raw data;
4) Say that anyone skeptical of the scam...errr....science is an anti-book-learning jesus freak who works for an oil company and wants to kill puppies.

Yep, that pretty much sums it up.

<edit>
This is basically exactly what they said on Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura. Cracked me up.

Quote:
Berkeley High School is considering a controversial proposal to eliminate science labs and the five science teachers who teach them to free up more resources to help struggling students.

The proposal to put the science-lab cuts on the table was approved recently by Berkeley High's School Governance Council, a body of teachers, parents, and students who oversee a plan to change the structure of the high school to address Berkeley's dismal racial achievement gap, where white students are doing far better than the state average while black and Latino students are doing worse.

When the news was interviewing the head of this search team, the News Anchor was trying to make the story focus on the Arctic ice melting, “never happened in the history of the world, global warming, etc, etc” The head of the search team, said “Well, we are going after a ship that went through the passage 160 years ago, thus the passage was melted at that time as well”. Fun to see the News Anchor with slack jaw and dumbfounded look…
