    As the economy has gone further into the current recession, emissions have gone down, oil usage has gone down, and the temperature has gone down. Therefore the cure for global warming is to totally destroy the economy which will get rid of the emissions, the oil usage, and return us to an ice age.

    Without getting too personal (and this is a serious question) how so?

    I mean, the company that you work for makes decisions regarding employment. Some energy companies have diversified, some have not. Power will sill flow through the same lines and need to be maintained.

    New forms of energy production require new labor to install and maintain.

    I had a long discussion over Thanksgiving with a very knowledgeable engineer about nuclear production. The French have figured it out, why can't we? You know the real reason we don't talk about nuclear power-- it would put many big fossil fuel and coal companies out of business.

    Say that out loud. Market Driven Self-Regulation. Do you understand what that means?

    Before opening your mouth, you should get better informed.

    Wrong. False. Show me the emails that said that.

    Never mind the fact that humans and animals continually emit carbon dioxide just by breathing and farting.
    Too bad it's carbon-monoxide that is the problem.

    Never mind the fact that plants NEED that carbon dioxide in order to live.
    Why do people post when they don't know what they're talking about? Or have been misinformed by propaganda....

    Never mind the fact that the planet goes through hot and cold stages normally and that we are coming out of an ice age period.
    And nevermind posting when you don't have a friggin' clue what you're talking about.

    You want to elaborate on why it 'sucks' to allow companies to monitor themselves?

    Economics, it's all about incentives. But of course you already know that.

    Re: Obama administration formally declares danger of carbon emissions

    Everything connected to Global Warming has been a HOAX from the start.

    This EPA action is proof that we as a Nation have been taken over by and are now under the control of a DICTATOR who does not give a damn about "WE THE PEOPLE" and care only about his Socialist/Communist agenda and a this latest action take effect the economy will continue to spiral into oblivion.

    There is little hope of stopping the coming depression which is where we are headded.

    Count on the price of every item sold and every service in the Country going up by 15% to 40% in the next few months as hyper inflation takes hold.

    People like this convincing otherwise normal people by alarmism and no statistical data are the reason why we don't talk about nuclear power.
