So many things that are now labelled green, aren't.
Take a look at the stuff they put in Prius batteries. Oh yummy.
One of the biggest NON-green cars is made my a company which brags about
their 'greenness'. (Volkswagen Taureg(sp?)
A well tuned 327ci Chevy engine from the late 60's can run as clean as
anything we've got today.
But it seems that the only way to fix anything politically is to throw
buckets of bullshit at it.
"Make it LOOK green."
I read an article that showed the average electric/hybrid car has a much
larger carbon footprint than a gasoline car, when you look at its total
life, from manufacturing to disposal.
This isn't the original article, but it explains it well enough.
"Playing is not something I do at night, it's my function in life"
Exactly my point to the greenies, The Hummer was better for the
environment than the Prius when you consider the energy to
Manufacture, Operate, and Dispose of when their life cycles have been
I think greenies believe that two cars built and operated the same
pollute the same unless one them is painted green.
Equally remarkable about 1981 is that it is an odd number year.
You can make any figures tell you what you want them to say. We do not
know the reason for climate change or how long it will last of if the
earth is naturally warming up to offset what did 40 years ago to cool
thing off unknowingly. We are going thorough a normal cycle.
That said the current findings and bits of data collected may explain
why the cave man is no longer around. His collection of data indicated
that there should be no more cooking with fire as it added too much to
the global pollution which was on every ones minds back then. They
starved to death trying to save the world. ;~)
What is getting lost is the fact that there are over 30 million CO2
belching automobiles operating in China and India that weren't in
operation 10 years ago.
Couple that with the clear cutting of the rain forests and you have a
real out of balance CO2 situation.
It is only going to get more out of balance unless the problem is
If you are so happy to tax anyone, why don't you contact Congress?
They're the ones with the "purse strings".
Ok, fun aside, whether or not you think there is a problem or not, the
increased production of CO2 is not helping the perceived problems. And I
would dearly see another "Elfstedentocht" in Holland during my life time.
A 200 km skating race on natural ice is just awesome ...
Isn't that the answer to every "problem", real or perceived?
"It's not helping the perceived problem", says it all. It matters less
whether, or not, there is a "problem", than it matters that there is a
*perception* of a problem. Perception is reality, I guess. Thank you,
Sorry, wrong choice of words. It isn't a question whether global warming
is happening, it is. The problem is whether one believes our increasing
CO2 conetent of the atmosphere has a major or a minor effect here.
That's the perception I speak of.
Being an ostrich never helped anyone.
Define "Global Warming". Does it mean something (anything) is changing? If
so, there's no question.
Does it mean that the Earth is getting warmer? Maybe. The jury is still out.
"Dangerously so"? No.
Does it justify higher taxes? Absurd.
Is it possible to do anything about it, if we wanted to. Nope.
...and what is the cart and what is the horse.
Exactly the "perception" I spoke of above, too. You believe the perception is
more important than the reality.
...and further wondering that why it is that now, warming follows CO2 when the
record shows that it has *always* led CO2. That "science" has always escaped
me. Of course then there is that "heat island" thing. ...and the outright
lies by the "scientists" who are profiting from "global warming". Nah,
nothing about the "science" to be concerned about.
Well, there is a "re" in research ...
That is indeed a factoid (if it isindeed true - have to stay at least as
skeptical as others) that I cannot explain, but it has nothing, absolutely
nothing to do with the unassailable fact that we are generating CO2 by
burning wood and fossil fuels. It seems to me to be logical to conclude
that that CO2 is at least contributing to the roughly doubled quantity of
CO2 in the atmosphere, and that such CO2 could be at least one factor in
the global warming process.
