    They do not even know how much man contributes either. Evidence is overwhelming but ignored that the SUN is a big cause. I mean come on EVERY planet has increased in temperature but we are to believe MAN is the cause on earth.

    It's all about the $$$. They want to spend something like $160 billion in x # of years, with the US contributing over $80 b. Of course the UN with their trusty shredders, would control all dollars. We needed to pull out of UN, yesterday.

    You know folks, you have to get behind this. I don't know why the ideological opposition, no-one is trying to bankrupt you, just trying to keep the poor old planet from cooking!

    Get behind WHAT?

    I'm STILL awaiting a defnitive answer on what is causing global warming. THEN you can talk to me about fixing it, IF it can be fixed.

    You don't know why there's opposition? Real simple. First the horse, THEN the cart.

    If you were shown the definitive answer, how would you know it was such?

    Your forgot sugar, alcohol, tobacco and lots of other things that affect individuals. This is about something that affects our total environment. I mean I can choose to ignore warnings about chocolate (and you can put money on it that I will :lol: ) but when it comes to the total environment then I think we owe it to each other to take notice as it will affect us all and of course our descendants.

    Here's my problem with the 'models.' Our NOAH is like among the best weather projection organizations out there. I think even Podunk, AK uses Doppler. Can they predict within 2 degrees the absolute temperature 48 hours from now? Based on what are we to curb our industries, lifestyles? Using data that goes back about 100 years, that used far less precise measures than we are using today?

    It just doesn't make sense other than, "It's for the children..." *angst*
