    I thought the solution to global warming was to donate money to Al Gore so he could plant a tree...

    Now Columbia University may have come up with a way to help reduce C02 from the air and environmentalists are against it... Are these people ever going to be happy?

    you should explain why they are against it. it is because they see the technology as a way to keep polluting because it can be cleaned up, rather than to simply stop polluting.

    but they are getting way out of hand. oppsing wind energy because it kills some birds? not wanting us to use technology to clean up the air because we will keep polluting? they need to realize that we're not gonna start living in mud and grass huts and give up all electrical appliances. we're trying to make concessions. the environmentalists need to do the same.

    This is more evidence that Democrats think the Kyoto Treaty will reduce greenhouse gases.

    That's just it, many of them want us living in those mud huts. It makes no sense at all to me to oppose this, they are just being stubborn jerks, and frankly adding to the perception that they are really communists, and socialists, who want to control how we live. :cuckoo:

    If they really cared about the environment they would kill themselves to save on CO2 emissions...

    I forgot it's hard to tell sarcasm online... Obviously I really don't want them to kill themselves, just don't want them to demonize the rest of us.

    They want others to live in mud huts. They have no intention of living in mud huts themselves. They like their lattes and designer threads and trips to the Bahamas too much.
