AGW is a theory, it's worth study but it's not settled science. Weakly now we read articles about how NOAA or another organization fudges the numbers to make the theory appear valid, even though an impartial valuation says otherwise. You may be a true believer if you wish but understand, there is no room for belief in science, which requires proof. When you believe, you are believing in the religion of AGW which is very different than the science.

    I smell Exxon funded studies. It's a distinct, oily smell.

    We're trying to keep the rabble from doing something exceedingly stupid, like copying Germany's “energiewende” ( Green revolution ).

    Ideologues in Germany made huge and foolish decisions to make that Country the first Nation totally powered through renewable energy sources. There was no objective analysis, no intelligent and open debate, just a race to the bottom at the expense of the German consumer to be a shining example of of concept that could never work,

    Thanks to this foolish commitment to substandard technology German consumers pay the highest electricity prices in Europe. They paid the highest amount in 2013 and the German Government raised their utility rates 20 % to subsidize Solar and Wind generated energy.

    Renewable energy cannot on its own merits compete with fossil fuel energy sources so of-course as a substandard technology has to be heavily subsidized. From surcharges, to fees to taxes that increase every year the German people are being fleeced by Progressive " solutions " to a problem that doesn't exist.

    Since renewable energies produce inherent lags in power ( Solar means the sun must be shining and wind means the wind must be blowing ) Germany has had to build new Coal fired generation power plants to make up for the obvious that for some reason they didn't foresee.

    The level of idiocy behind these Green initiatives is unparalleled. Since 2010 Germany has had to increase their dependence on " lignite ", one of the dirtiest forms of coal fired generation to make up for the power lags that come with " renewable energies "

    In 2014 lignite was the single biggest source of German power, generating 25.8 percent, and it has risen every year since 2010.

    So the Progressives were given enough power to implement their " solutions " which have led to more and more discretionary income being taken from the pockets of German consumers as Germans pay 300 % more for their electricity than the average American.

    And on top of everything their air in now dirtier than it was before they started this foolish initiative.
