    Can't we just agree that less pollution is a good thing? Global warming or not, if you think car exhaust is good, go breathe it for 5 minutes and tell me how that works out for you.
    Thats been my position since long before Al Gore burst out at and onto the seams. We need to be developing clean energy and more efficient fuel sources. I personally get disgusted every time I have go into a city thats covered by a layer of yellow and grey crap that people are breathing.

    Something like that anyway. I'm sick of a president who's idea of improving things is cramming us into socialized transportation, or onto bicycles. Our President should have bigger dreams than that for the country.
    Easy then, just travel back in time to a period when we were not nearing the end of cheap oil without preparing for it for the 40 years we've known for sure it was coming.

    If you wish to discuss Climate change here is thread for that: http://www.debatepolitics.com/enviro...arming-ii.html

    BTW, "There has been no scientific organization of national or international standing that has held a dissenting view since 2007."

    Don't have to, we could exploit our own energy.

    It's going to get worse before it gets better. But the problem is not ONLY Obama. The problem is more systemic than political.
