    Reversing global warming will require:

    *White Roofs
    *97% HVAC systems
    *Energy Efficient Windows
    *proper insulation
    *retail shop owners NOT air conditioning the outside
    *Buildings meeting LEED specs
    *walking
    *biking
    *driving 36 mpg or better cars the lions share of the time
    *computerized thermostats
    *wearing sweaters and light jackets inside during winter
    *going naked inside/outside if possible during hot summer months
    *more socializing and dating on feet and bicycles
    *stopping the war and all of the pollution created by hummers,trucks,tanks,low yield radioactive weapons,airplanes/fighter jets,chemical warfare = killing the policy of global control by USA military
    *cutting grass less often = watering less often and no fertilizing
    *developing hydro power,solar power and wind power to the fullest extent
    *move closer to work if possible
    *stop buying water in plastic bottles/ use stainless steel bottles over and over and over again...will fit into bicycle water bottle cages
    *building energy star homes
    *making biking and walking surfaces safe to travel
    *increased use of public transportation

    How about like in the EU we all take the month of August off on paid "holiday"? No air conditioned offices...

    Walking, biking and insulating. That's the left's solution to economic instability? We are selling our freaking treasure to countries that produce fossil fuel while the president hires communists to be on his green jobs board only there ain't no green jobs. How are we going to get it back? By pretending we are energy efficient? We ain't got time for this nonsense. We need to become independent of foreign energy.

    Hey Whitey, you have a bunch of Zander's Unicorn farts for sale? Cause there is no way that a country with 2% or 3% of the world's oil reserves can drill it's way to independence when it uses 24% of the world's oil.

    And do not give me the bullshit about coal. Maybe 50 years supply at the outside at current rate of increase in use.
