First point Kernos made is the most important.. Politicians screwed everything up, but more importantly the media has it's little fingers in it and makes mush out of the issues.
Neither know jack about it, truthfully.
Secondly, to the first, the agenda underlying the motivation for political assertion is the reason for the failure. If this was a genuine effort, we never would have gotten to this point. I will again mention I spent 15 years in study of climate change, emission control and as an emission compliance officer employed by the government, so please understand my insight IS first hand.
To Kernos' second point, YES the climate is TOTALLY screwed up by emissions.
The fault lies in failed agenda driven "science" trying to prove something motive driven. Do you all remember when freon was made the villain? And we went to a different gas in all of our automobiles for air conditioning? Do you remember the Ozone hole theory?
The trouble has been, in the most recent effort, to revive the cap and trade idea as if it was a new invention.
It is not, it fails and it fails us all directly. It has failed us for over 20 years, and will continue to do so. It is a pork barrel, deal.
Yes, global warming is a real threat, not a false one, BUT! It is not going to be predictable. It is not going to cause what the politicians seem to think.
Instead it is causing the unthinkable, that our governments have and desire to continue to allow the worst pollution and the most devastating affects to go totally unchecked while we pay more and more into a failed system of government scamming with just about NO result in stopping the problem.
So, why swift boat the climate change?
If Congress tries to go forward with cap-and-trade, a volcano of public resistance and Tea Party rebellion will erupt now, and in the current political climate, the environmental side will not be able to prevail.
First, yes IT IS ABOUT CAP AND TRADE, but this time, ON A GLOBAL SCALE!
It failed our country, now it is poised to fail the entire world.
But I link to these press reports as evidence of what happens when science meets journalism — especially when the scientists are clueless about the nature of the game being played.
And they have every right to be ANGRY AS HELL!

Watch this to the end, it is an important piece of this whole issue.
In essence, the truth about the solution to global weirding is not a profit for the rich in-control-tax-the-poor criminals who run this media mess.
And those scientists which are being ripped on by the media were directed to prove a point which has failed to collect MONEY from you and me.
What we really need is the investment toward solutions to greenhouse gas emissions, the trouble is that is frees us from the energy mongers, and in fact plugs into the sun, earth and very simply made methods which would steer all that money away from the current governments and coming financial base of the world government yet to come. http://views.washingtonpost.com/climate ... lem_1.html
Truth is, we are not going to see the world burn up, but rather go into a cycle which will more likely "clean" itself, and it will clean itself of us..
All of this science is OLD, been around for decades. Think about it... Why do you think it has not been put into use after decades of $$$ taken by the American government in fuel tax, emission tax, and all other measures, yet big industry has been allowed to continue polluting with NO emission control, yet YOUR car has a complete emission control system?
YOU must pay more for your car to afford the complex emission system...
Why not everything else?
When you do figure it out, the reasons for ignoring climate change become very obvious, and that "global warming" is the brainchild of politicians.
Re-direct the science, make it a reason to enact a global authority! But do not actually use known science to stop the problem...
Here is a truth, greenhouse gas can cause MANY problems, and warming
is only one
Why make this one problem into an issue? and ignore the rest?
You may not believe me yet, but you will...
The truth of all of this is unavoidable.
"revenue stream $$$$
" is this answer.
The solutions are very simple.
We already have enough nuclear fuel to run on for 100 years! We DO NOT NEED TO REAP ANY MORE!
