LFTR reactors, geothermal like iceland uses, solar thermal like SEGS, and windturbines like the Regenadyne
would solve our power issues. Could also use shrouded underwater turbines in the massive currents
offshore such as the Antarctic Circumpolar current ( 125 times the flow off all rivers on earth ).

Food manufacturers are responsible for all the poop in the world!
Prove me wrong!
LOL, but I will take that challenge:
Politicians are also responsible for the poop in the world!
I thought politicians were responsible for all the HOT AIR in the world.

This is a failure of everyone, not just them.
We all would have revolted if they stopped production and use, then switching to what back then would be cost destructive to every economy.
We all wanted our cars, cheap easily accessable products, affordable energy, etc.
The responsibility is on everyone.
Svante Arrhenius (1859-1927) was a Swedish scientist that was the first to claim in 1896 that fossil fuel combustion may eventually result in enhanced global warming. He proposed a relation between atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations and temperature. He found that the average surface temperature of the earth is about 15oC because of the infrared absorption capacity of water vapor and carbon dioxide. This is called the natural greenhouse effect. Arrhenius suggested a doubling of the CO2 concentration would lead to a 5oC temperature rise. He and Thomas Chamberlin calculated that human activities could warm the earth by adding carbon dioxide to the atmosphere.

Then by all means shut down big Oil, but No we get carbon taxes..pfftt.
This whole carbon emission thing is not Man-man folks! We inhale oxygen and exhale mostly CO2, now there more people in the world today then ever before.
So blame us as well for carbon emmissions, as well going by that logic.

The fossil fuel industry knew EXACTLY what the consequences of putting 'all that' CO2 into the atmosphere would be in 1979.

You are looking at one aspect. That the increase of CO2 in the atmosphere would increase temperature. That is the greenhouse effect and it works in a greenhouse. ... The earth is NOT a greenhouse!
What about the rest of it. The earth is NOT a greenhouse! For instance when temperature increases, water evaporation also increases. When evaporation increases, so does the formation of clouds. Clouds block the sun rays and temperature decreases.
etc. etc. etc. ...
Hello association fallacy. Nice to meet you.
And now that YOU know, you have stopped using fossil fuels; ditched your car, turned off the power at home and thrown out your gas stove, right?
It is a term created by advertising agency at the behest of the Al Gore's of the world. It is intended to bring to mind those people who deny that the Holocaust ever happened. But it actually has a more sinister aspect. (Talk about language forming ideas in your mind)
The IPPC is currently lobbying to make questioning of the theory of Global Warming (or is it climate change now) a criminal offence similar to denial of the Holocaust.
