    The planet is not in need of saving though, we are in dire need of a new energy source though, fossil fuels won't last much longer.

    To make a point about a subject using a different subject. Do you agree that the founding fathers ending slavery immediately would've completely devastated America?

    We agree on this, Star. I was going for the more fanatical environmentalist (let's face it, most are liberals) who thinks "WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!!!!" You're more of a sane liberal on that topic.

    You could have done that in the thread in which the subject arose, instead of creating an "Everyone look at me" thread.

    I'm done with this ****ty thread. Later.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    1. All threads are "everyone look at me" threads.
    2. I'm still not sure why you seem so angry. Why not just follow the conversation? Why not answer the question posed as a comparison to your response about environmentalism?

    To end AGW, you would have to resequester all the fossil fuel released carbons. Obviously, we haven't done that. In fact, we've started burning even more fossil fuels. So, we continue to go in the wrong direction, increasing the speed at which the runaway greenhouse effect takes place.

    If we stop all manmade greenhouse gases going into the air, it will only reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that go into the air by 3%. 97% is out of our control.

    No, of course not. Climate change is a constant natural phenomenon and cannot be stopped or started, even.

    Nuclear power is sufficient for electricity generation.

    We have hundreds of trillions of cubic feet of methane to tap into, not to mention coal up the wazoo. "Running out" hardly describes our present situation.
