    Big oil is still in a pickle..

    Big oil teeters between enemy and ally in climate fight

    The new flashpoint in the climate change debate is over the role of oil companies — whether they're culprits, allies, or something of a frenemy.

    Why it matters: The burning of fossil fuels these companies produce is a big reason Earth’s temperature is rising, yet their products are also foundations of the global economy. Whether you love or hate them, what role these companies play is inherent to addressing climate change, particularly in the absence of presidential leadership on the issue.

    That human GHG emissions are the primary cause of the warming seen over the last 150 years is simply an established fact. That the world has gone through large changes in the past is irrelevant because human culture has not.

    The fossil fuel industries (petroleum, coal, natural gas) cannot be tolerated for the indefinite future. For one thing, they will run out of raw materials in the foreseeable future. The world must move away from a fossil-fuel industrial base as quickly as possible. That does NOT mean instantly. The rise of alternative energy sources for homes, industries and transportation is the path of our cultural salvation. It is a road that needs to be followed.

    Another thread proudly proclaiming the merits of a banner! We've been hearing this same narrative for 25 years and what has changed?

    DICK

    NOBODY is caring in the real world and the evidence is staggering! What I find fascinating is, despite not being able to make any inroads in the fight against climate change the message never changes. Look at the posts above. It's the same exact tired crap these people have been postulating about for decades. For Christsakes, we've still never seen climate change as a topic in a presidential debate:eusa_dance::eusa_dance::fu:

    Ya know s0ns....time for Plan B!:flirtysmile4:

    Who can't see these same bozos posting up the same, "But the science says...." banner stuff 10 years from now? And solar power will STILL be at laughably low output levels. And the bozos will still be proud of their banner!:2up::backpedal:
