    They don't care. Unless Beck or Hannity say it's okay, it's not okay.

    The far-right is now so-oooo conservative, they refuse to think for themselves. It's safer to let other people think for them.
    Have you had a post in this thread that was actual debate and not just elitism and avoiding the argument?

    Good analogy.

    We don't know how much CO2 is too much, but we do know that increasing it is going to make some changes in global climate.

    Some of those changes may be positive, but overall they will pose some challenges in the future.

    Without CO2, life on Earth would not be possible. For one thing, the world would be so cold that higher forms of life would have a hard time surviving. More importantly, green plants need it to produce food. Without CO2, there would be no plants, and therefore, no animals. The temperature wouldn't matter, as no one would be here to experience it.

    But there is such a thing as too much CO2. Water is necessary for life, too, but too much of it can cause some problems for us humans. Just ask the people in New Orleans if there isn't such a thing as too much water.

    There is such a thing as too much CO2, also, and we're already at that point.

    Reducing it is going to take an unprecedented amount of not only national, but global cooperation, so it is pretty much an academic question how much global climate change is due to human activities and whether we can mitigate it.

    We probably can, but we won't. We will have to learn to live with it.

    Re: Obama administration formally declares danger of carbon emissions

    Newsflash: Totalitarian Democrats in Washington have decided that a naturally occuring gas is now toxic to humans. Nevermind that CO2 is needed for humans to live, we are gonna expell it from the atmosphere by way of taxation and mother nature is gonna give the totalitarians a huge hug for making her healthy again.

    So CO2 is now a toxic gas. Do these morons understand what level of CO2 is required to be toxic on a global scale? This isnt a case of someone sitting in their garage with the door down and their car running.

    The totalitarians are out of their vulcan minds.

    Read the rest of the post before embarrassing yourself by making such a reply.

    No one is saying that CO2 is a poisonous gas.

    so while the Theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming is proven to be a hoax, while the globe is cooling while CO2 is rising, while the national economy is faltering, the Messiah is going to rush out and declare his very own personal hot air a national health hazard.

    Nice.

    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    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.
    NO, the real reason no one discusses nuclear power is that the lunatic fringe majority of Democrats have their heads rammed up their nether sphincter.
