Global Climate Change is no longer a matter of belief - Hard numbers are coming in and it's now fact. Some countries like Germany are actually making a significant dent in their emmissions. It's not a control issue with Obama - He's just too scared in an election year to speak up with the will of his convictions and Romney is just as bad or even worst- I don't want to even think about the Stream Report for July of 2024

We probably should do what we can do reduce CO2 emission, but we have to be realistic in admitting that it will not be enough to stop the ever increasing warming. How much pain we should suffer in the form of increased energy costs compared to reducing the pain of increased warming is a political and economic argument that can have its parameters made more clear by paying attention to what the models tell us. Conservation/energy efficiency have made significant progress in the developed world, a major reason oil imports to the US have not skyrocketed. The biggest reason Germany is doing so well (they buy their solar panels from China which burns coal to make the panels, so they also transferred some of their emissions to China) but the German goal is at least as much to replace nuclear power as it is to reduce CO2.
For its part China is beginning to formulate plans to reduce CO2 emissions, but it faces even more stark economic considerations than the US or Europe.
I am not hopeful.

VERY well said and impressive! You obviously read up on this topic a bit! I'm interested in what you say about energy required from fossil fuels to produce "green" products such as solar panels. Where did you get your info, do you remember? I would like to read more on that myself.

Mankind's industrial production adds a grain of sand compared to what solar flare emissions cause, also, a volcanic eruption dwarfs all of mankinds CO2 emissions.
Al Gore is a tool.

gang are counting on your and our indifference. You like encountering trout in clean water? Most members of the gang mentioned could care
less, unless it happens to do with their little stretch of private water. Short reading list for enlightenment (obvious stuff)- Edward Abbey, Henry David Thoreau, John Muir, John Burroughs and on and on. Get with it -
