I wish they would acknowledge the fact that the same researchers also said that carbon dioxide is less than two percent of the greenhouse gases are carbon dioxide.

This doesn't seem like a new idea. Living in CA we've been talking about a carbon tax for a few years now but so far it's a no go. The US will not take any action until we're under water. Even then they will just try to build a wall to keep the water out. it'll be huge....

Jane Peal it's seems every 10 years or so they say we got 10 years to change things b4 it's to late. Well by my math it was to late like 30 years ago. I think the earth warms and cools as it pleases who are we to think that we can change anything for better or worse I mean I guess it's possible we could fuck up the planet but for most of humanity we did not pollute at all it just the past 100 years we had cars and smog producing plants and really about only 50 or 60 that there was a lot of them I think we need to change some stuff but not because we are going to 2012 this bitch but because there is only so much oil and natural gas on the planet so we need to find other means of energy b4 it runs out
