    EPA: Power plants main global warming culprits

    EPA: Power plants main global warming culprits - Yahoo! News

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The most detailed data yet on emissions of heat-trapping gases show that U.S. power plants are responsible for the bulk of the pollution blamed for global warming.
    Power plants released 72 percent of the greenhouse gases reported to the Environmental Protection Agency for 2010, according to information released Wednesday that was the first catalog of global warming pollution by facility. The data include more than 6,700 of the largest industrial sources of greenhouse gases, or about 80 percent of total U.S. emissions.

    Ok. So what would you like to see done about it? Are you the one who's going to turn their power off so we can shut down these plants?

    Stupid scientists and their unreasonable demand for empirical evidence before rejecting their theories. Isn't that one email that one time enough to completely debunk everything they ever say that disagrees with the status quo?



    The anti-global warming crowd reminds me of something Terry Pratchett once wrote about people not teaching their kids self-defense to protect them from getting into a fight.

    This is why I'm all for nuclear power.

    Even if AGW isn't believed, one must consider the huge amount of pollutants (largely forgotten lately) released by burning coal.

    The answer is to build more nuclear, wind, solar, wave, and hydro plants, and then watch the unemployment drop through the floor while all these plants are built and then maintained.

    Well, some guys seem to blame every other issue on the gays, why not this one I guess?

    But if gays cause global warming, and global warming isn't real, does that mean gay marriage is a scientific hoax?
