Your first article was right on.
If it weren't for Global Warming, wouldn't we still be stuck in the last Ice Age? The only things getting really hot and bothered are the politicians and the left wing who receive gobs of free fed money for their think tanks.
IMO, Global Warming is no more than Mother Nature having a HOT FLASH!!!
When you think about it, I find the Global Hot Air Issue just that. What has become such a butt clencher for politicians, this planet under peril business, was a complete non issue to them what, five years ago?
It would be interesting to have a presidential debate on this topic alone.
Barack with his national low-carbon fuel standard, Hillary, whose
campaign announced it would go "carbon neutral" beginning today,
and McCain, who thinks clean energy credits should be bought and sold. And Al Gore is obviously some kind of god not to be questioned.
"How egotistical can we as humans be, thinking that we will have one iota of an effect on this planet. When the earth is done with us, it will be just the earth again...with some plastic laying around." George Carlin
I personally think that all carbonated beverages should be banned immediately. You know what happens when you drop or shake that can of Coke and then open it..... The fizz that sprays out all over the place is carbon dioxide...
Carbon offsets are the silliest thing to come down the pike so far. One can pollute to their hearts content by just paying others off! That'll save the planet for sure.
