    Its not an overnight fix I agree but it would if certain world powers would set a better example it would go a lot faster. Countries like Canada and China do more to hinder green energy and they do to help it.

    The UN admits the sun has something to do with climate, well imagine that. Global warming is real. So is global cooling. As a former geology major, we studied climate cycles through the geological ages. The only illogical belief is that climate will remain the same. Trends in climate aren't measured in decades and people are only aware of the weather in their lifetimes. Trends are measured in eons and climate hysteria is only displayed by those without the science background to understand it.

    See, this is what I mean. You lump Canada in your response, why? because they are actually extracting oil from the tar sands, and shale? It's the energy the world needs today, in the here and now. Why does that make them somehow bad?

    Look, I am an "all of the above guy" IF you have something that is proven and can, or is proven to work in replacing the energy we have now, and would bring down costs for the average person, then I am all for it. But we don't. Meanwhile, we have people that are constantly screaming for people to get off oil, use candles in their homes, forego toilet paper, etc. with nothing, not even a clue of how to replace it, or couldn't care less what the increased costs their policies do to the middle class, and poor.

    Frankly, I am sick and tired of paying $4 at the pump to make it to work, tired of increases at the grocery store every time I go in there, tired of of people tell me I am somehow not a 1st class citizen if I don't spend more, and stop using the things that are there in the here and now in lieu of that which doesn't work. And I am sick and tired of the lies, and dishonest way that all of these arguments are posed to the people as if we can just blame the opposition for all the ills, and not take a look at how the policy put in place effects the outcomes...It's BS of the highest order, and just not honest.

    So, like I said, if you have something that will instantly replace oil, or coal as the primary energy source of the world, then by all means please share it, and don't give us failed crap like wind, and solar that has done little more than fleece my hard earned money to pay back political cronies. Other than that, it really is just talking point pap that is being bantered back and forth...

    Oh, and finally, Keep in mind that Obama only has 3 more years, and less than one if you consider that his current overreaching could easily spark the repub's taking over both houses in the fall of next year, then his tactics are rendered moot. And he can finish out his terms the same way Clinton did, making dumb videos of him riding a bike through the west wing, and hamming it up while repub's go about trying to fix his "fundamental transformation" that has to date largely failed.

    I was more angry at Canada for leaving the Kyoto Protocol and completely disregarding it.

    exactly... or it was cold outside yesterday, but it was because global warming somewhere else forced the colder air to come to your area.

    I don't claim to be a scientist. I claim there is more than one brick to the house of evidence and that you should not cherry pick from your misunderstandings and address all the bricks. I linked am article explaining that. I also claim there is a solid consensus. I've linked that as well. But let me give you more:



    The author is in the Department of History and Science Studies Program, University of California at San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093, USA. E-mail: noreskes@ucsd.edu
    Policy-makers and the public who are not members of the relevant research community have had to form opinions about the reality of global climate change on the basis of often conflicting descriptions provided by the media regarding the level of scientific certainty attached to studies of climate. In this Essay, Oreskes analyzes the existing scientific literature to show that there is a robust consensus that anthropogenic global climate change is occurring. Thus, despite claims sometimes made by some groups that there is not good evidence that Earth's climate is being affected by human activities, the scientific community is in overwhelming agreement that such evidence is clear and persuasive.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
