    If humans would respond to Global Warming and air pollution accordingly there would be no need for this approach. The concern of Global Warming is not new information which is to say the concern for Global Warming has likely been around longer than any of us have been on the planet.

    The problem with too many humans is until a problem becomes a severe crisis and/or begins to cost additional dollars they don't give a damn especially in America.

    Profiteers from pollution like to distort information which makes them frauds not experts. Profiteers tend to make Americans look very stupid in the eyes of the world.

    The USA is 5% of the world population burning 25% of the world's energy that which is a huge contribution to Global Warming and Ozone damage. Let's not allow profiteers to make fools of us.

    Humans began altering the climate 8,000 years ago, a leading climate scientist has claimed. Massive clearance and irrigation for agriculture released huge amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, says William Ruddiman of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.

    By the time the industrial revolution got under way, we had already raised the global temperature by an average of 0.8C and by as much as 2C at high latitudes, he proposes - enough to deflect an impending ice age. Today's winters would be as much as seven degrees cooler at high latitudes if it were not for the pre-industrial input of greenhouse gases, he says.

    Instead, carbon dioxide has been rising for 8,000 years and methane for 5,000. "It's a near dead certainty that these changes aren't natural," Ruddiman told the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco.

    1. The Environmental Protection Agency, in response to petitions against action to curb heat-trapping emissions, dismissed attacks on the science rooted in the stolen emails.

    Myth: The University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit (CRU) emails prove that temperature data and trends were manipulated.
    * Myths vs. Facts: Denial of Petitions for Reconsideration of the Endangerment and Cause or Contribute Findings for Greenhouse Gases under Section 202(a) of the Clean Air Act | Regulatory Initiatives | Climate Change | U.S. EPA


    2. Factcheck.org debunked claims that the emails put the conclusions of climate science into question.

    In late November 2009, more than 1,000 e-mails between scientists at the Climate Research Unit of the U.K.’s University of East Anglia were stolen and made public by an as-yet-unnamed hacker. Climate skeptics are claiming that they show scientific misconduct that amounts to the complete fabrication of man-made global warming. We find that to be unfounded:
    * FactCheck.org : “Climategate”


    3. Politifact.com rated claims that the emails falsify climate science as "false."

    We also know this: The e-mails do not prove that climate change is a hoax.

    Here's why:
    * PolitiFact | Inhofe claims that e-mails 'debunk' science behind climate change


    4. An Associated Press review of the emails found that they "don't undercut the vast body of evidence showing the world is warming because of man-made greenhouse gas emissions."

    LONDON — E-mails stolen from climate scientists show they stonewalled skeptics and discussed hiding data — but the messages don't support claims that the science of global warming was faked, according to an exhaustive review by The Associated Press.

    Are you trying to get all this in because you are only allotted one hour a day?

    It begs the question: What can we do to stop it?

    Part of the answer is right here in Oregon's towering old-growth forests. Scientists have found that the Northwest's giant trees are also giant carbon sinks, catching the pollution that causes the planet to warm.

    What can we do to stop global warming is:

    Protect our old-growth forests that are the natural warriors, quietly fighting the global warming battle for us.

    The Impacts
    Oregon Wild is also keenly aware of the adverse impacts climate change could have on our natural treasures. From reduced snowpack, to changing habitat, global warming presents a threat to the special places we cherish in Oregon.

    That's why we teamed up with multiple conservation groups and the Western Environmental Law Center to sue the federal government to allow for more stringent auto emissions standards.

    This is new territory for us, but global warming could impact so much of Oregon's wildlands, wildlife and wild rivers that we felt compelled to act.

    ....And, that would absolve you of your (typical) Teabagger-style laziness/ignorance, how?

    You know what’s great about America? Politicians can shit on other people’s lives without fear of any repercussion.

    They can pimp themselves out to special interest groups and big money in order to keep their campaign coffers full, while posturing about how well they serve their constituents.

    Now that’s freedom.

    So in honor of those other freedoms which make America great, let’s go ahead and name some names:
