what ever happened to reason? people still bring up "climate-gate" (why does everything have to have -gate? so cliche), even tho it was proven to
be a non-event. it was investigated and the results showed no wrong doing by those involved.
now when it comes to global warming, or as the republicans re-branded it, climate change, its really hard to see where the problem is. is the climate
changing? all info points to yes. does man have a hand in that? all info points to yes. can man change the climate? massive deforestation and the
atomic bomb points to yes.
for a real quick look at the situ, look at l.a. in the '80's. orange haze and acid rain. cali changed emission standards and look, the air and
rain cleaned up (not completely, but its way better). another reasonable look is the think about gravity. all that crap we put into the air is going
to come down, usually miles away from where it was spewed in the first place. now think about all the poisoned farmland in the country. all the
poisoned water. gee, i wonder how that happened, if not for man?
now, my question is this. we know that oil and fossil fuels will run out, so why wait and get pinched? why wait for a "mad max" scenario when
people are cutting their neighbors throats for a gallon of gas? whether we "go green" due to climate change, or just to get off oil, is not that
end preferrable to the do nothing end?
personally, id rather fix a problem (use of fossil fuels) before it becomes necessary, than wait for it to bite me in the butt (running out).
