    Automobile exhaust most certainly IS a pollutant. Carbon has been so nicely sequestered naturally and we are now irresponsibly reintroducing it into the atmosphere.

    What are we supposed to do with fossil fuels, leave them in the ground until the sun expands to a red giant?

    They're there.

    Use them.

    And keeping the planet warm and delaying the coming ice age is a most excellent and prudent use of those fuels, if I may say so myself.

    The non-carbon, non-H20 components may be, but our engineering is so finely perfected that almost no nitrogen compounds are released or others.

    CO2 is essential for keeping the ice age at bay, H20 is essential for relieving California's drought.

    Don't give me no guff about how the amount of H20 is insignificant to California's drought problem. You people argue incessantly that the human contribution of 0.01% of a gas that comprises 1% of the greenhouse gases on the planet is warming up the planet (and thus keeping the ice age away, you guys must love skiing....), so you can't believably argue that 0.00001% of the water contributed to the California atmosphere from combustion of hydrocarbon fuels is insignificant.

    Right. Ever ride in a bicycle behind a bus or truck that uses desiel fuel? Plenty of pollution there. Automobiles as a whole release large amounts of pollution. That is an undeniable fact.

    CO2 is essential for keeping the ice age at bay, H20 is essential for relieving California's drought.
    By making the planet hotter? I would rather avoid that as well.

    Unless California's drought problem is caused BY human-induced climate change.

    UW-Milwaukee Study Could Realign Climate Change Theory - Milwaukee Weather News Story - WISN Milwaukee

    A Socialist Government will ALWAYS seek ever more ways to Tax an already overtaxed population.
    Gee, lets put a "Cap and trade" policy in place.
    For sure this will make people think about whether to heat/cool themselves before being able to afford to put food on their plate.

    Cap and Trade, does not mean that pollution will go away, nor even that it will reduce.

    All it does mean is that the Government gets more cash from Industry.

    These extra costs are then inevitably passed on to their Customers.
    YEA, UW-Milwaukee!!!!!!!

    There's a reason I don't ride bicycles....what was it...oh, yeah. Bicycle riding merely recycles carbon existing in the biosphere and does nothing to prevent the next ice age.

    Not to worry....buses are run by metropolitan governments and are typically exempt from the clean air requirements us peon citizens have to obey. No wonder they're producing pollution as well as CO2 and H2O.

    You must remember, CO2 and H2O are not pollutants.

    They're the by-products of life.

    One generally avoids freezing by raising the room temperature. You have any evidence to believe that the average summer you experienced when you were eight years old was destined to become the mostest and bestest optimalest climate year ever?

    Probably isn't. No evidence exists to indicate humans have ever had any effect on global climate.

    No, the last two centuries do not show that correlation.

    The whole idea about Global Warming or Climate Change (or whatever term is used to describe it) is that increasing output of carbon into the environment at the same time as reducing the number of photosynthetic carbon sinks (i.e. trees due to deforestation) is throwing the carbon cycle out of balance.
    Human activity is adding to the forcing that green house gases have on the climate.

    The point is not whether it gets hotter or gets colder or sea levels rise, the point is global climate instability - that means rapid change at a rate that we cannot acclimate to comfortably.

    Sure, things change all the time, why use that as an excuse to force them to change more rapidly than natural & in a direction that would be uncomfortable (i.e. life-threatening) to the majority of the world's population?

    Does it take much work to maintain such willful blindness?
