    That was the same thought I was struck by in reading this thread. Why do some conservatives cheer against alternative energy, the main thing we will need to rely on in the future to make our economy grow? It seems almost impossible to be that short-sighted!

    When clean renewable energy becomes affordable, conservatives will buy and use it.
    Passive solar building knowledge has been around for centuries. How many conservatives are using it?

    Please enlighten us to what is you have determined to be the driver of climate change, that scientists all over the world have missed?

    Republicans Want To Ax Renewable Energy and Environment

    So which part of my entire statement is false?
    Bull****, we don't complain about it all as potential energy sources. It's just that lefties think we can shutdown coal and oil source immediately and go completely on these new energies. Only zealous fanatics could possibly be convinced that we could do such a thing.

    To use your term, "bull****!" Please cite all these "lefties" you claim have called for the immediate shutdown of coal and oil operations?

    Good luck EVER getting an answer to THAT question.

    I have asked it over and over and the nearest I have to a rational answer from a denialist is "fairies at the bottom of the garden"
    Greenhouse gases: Any gas that, by an accident of chemistry, happens to absorb radiation of a type that the Earth, by an accident of history, would like to lose.
    The internet is like a herd of performing elephants with diarrhoea -- massive, difficult to redirect, awe-inspiring, entertaining, and a source of mind- boggling amounts of excrement when you least expect it.
