Roughly 10% of the population consider the issue of global warming extremely important, personally.

There's one nugget for the Luddite Crowd to latch upon... the fact that most people seem to realize that they'll likely be dead before the worst consequences are manifest. Pathetic humans...

I'd prefer a spectrum indicating good to bad, not great to good.

For States where 95% do not consider this issue extremely important personally, they still received a green rating.

So let me get this straight... you object to the color selection of the map graphic, right? You're making the claim of bias in COLOR SELECTION. Never mind the data.

You want the data shaded YOUR way.

Lol.

Map Color Coding Bias...

LOL LOL

I was referring to carbon footprints. No doubt, your air travel (alone) puts you in the top one percent of polluters. And your recreational road trips are just icing on the warming cake.

You should be so proud.

I am proud. I've provided for my children. I'm alive and kicking after 20 plus years on the road. Ive flown over a million miles.

It bothers me knott to straddle the fence as the chief so kindly puts it. I won't travel with a cloak of shame trailing behind me. I avail myself of the technology and travel means of the day.

Should I stop and become an organic farmer and never go anywhere? I can't do it, I've obligations to meet. So how does a proud 1% participate in global warming discussions and even plans?

I dunno, that's what I'm trying to ascertain. I and many others like me BROUGHT you all this global trade. Its what we do - plumb the world with the technology to make all this possible. Its how I make my living, selling the Evil Empire.

Can we make the Evil Empire less evil and still have an empire? And jobs?

THAT'S WHAT I'M TRYING TO ASCERTAIN?

I know this... quitting my job will do NOTHING to help the situation. It won't help me and it won't help lessen the global warming. Must everyone change all at once? Well, like switching to the metric system... yes, at some point, like when the oil prices begin to preclude wholesale travel... we are going to all have to change all at once. Across the board.

Till then? What incremental steps can we take?

THAT'S WHAT I'M TRYING TO ASCERTAIN.

I don't have the answers. I haven't seen or read the answers, certainly not in this thread. But I'll stick around nonetheless, and dismiss the rantings of the chief simply because he's the chief and he's been kicking this dog for a half a decade, his expertise in the matter due to the fact he flew in some airplanes that were carrying scientists to the Antarctica, coupled with a sh#t load of blog-speak since. Yawn.

Oh and Rick Sumner, the housing specialist and Renaissance back yard scientist... what a fountain of info, lol.

Ron Anderson... whatever.

And you, Sketch.

In your case I'm convinced you know GW is real and caused by humans. So I think you have a bit more integrity about the issue though you don't display it in this thread.

^^^^^

but but but

by doing so the shareholders of the oil and natural gas companies would see their personal profits drop sharply!

this would piss them off so much that they would lay off workers!

which would put those people on unemployment and then food stamps and WELFARE

and America would be just devastated, ruined


so, it won't happen

Don't you just have to use a garden hose to clean solar panels? They have
to be water proof right? What other care do they need?

But ,Who would install all of those alternatives,and then maintain them?

why, government employees of course!

that way, their employment does not count as being "really" employed

because we all know that government employees are "takers" and not real American workers

plus, they are unionized, and we all hate unions...

poor Toronto

they are embarrassed to have Ford as their mayor

the city council has already voted to strip him of almost all his mayor type powers

they want to get rid of him right now but cannot, no legal way to remove him from office..

unless, he is convicted of a crime, which has not been

they are stuck with him

maybe they will give more consideration to who they vote for in the future.....naw...

Penguin chicks are dying as a direct consequence of climate change, according to new research.





Drenching rainstorms and extreme heat are killing the young birds in significant numbers.

The long-term study looked at climate impacts on the world's biggest colony of Magellanic penguins, over a 27-year period.

The research has been published in the journal Plos One.


They are turning their nests into swimming pools and they really don't like to be wet”

About 200,000 pairs of these penguins make their nests on the arid Punta Tombo peninsula in Argentina every year.

They reside there, in desert like conditions, from September until February to hatch their young.

However the life of a newborn chick is perilous, to say the least.

Downy death
They are too big for their parents to sit on top of and keep warm, but too young to have waterproof feathers.

As a result, they are particularly vulnerable to rainstorms. If they get drenched they usually die, despite the attentions of their despairing parents.

They can also succumb to extreme heat, as they can't cool off in the water like the others.
