There's still much work to be done though, for starters the US getting involved in similar controls by way of reduced dependence on fossil fuels.

And by the way, if you don't like a socially responsible administration, then get the hell out. I'm sure there's plenty of room for you in a country more understanding of your backwards ideology, like Iran for example.


If you want to save the Earth from global warming, time to turn your computer off, your furnace off, and walk to work. Want to cut CO2 levels like the Kyoto Protocol suggests? Everyone will have to live like Kenyans, only without the droopy-boobed chicks from National Geographic. Sound appealing to you?

Look, if those droopy-boobed chicks were good enough for us at age 11, they are good enough for us now!

oh wait, you said "without."

never mind. :|

Anyway, back to the topic. I'm neutral on this, because as I said before, I'm not a scientist and I really think that the issue has been politicized to death on BOTH sides. So without the barbs at each other, why do those of you with strong opinions on this feel the way that you do? Both sides. I'm just curious...

I'm a card-carrying Sierra Club member and ride the light rail to work, so you can probably guess how I lean on environmental issues, but even I agree that some of the global warming people are too strident and narrow-minded in their beliefs. It's beyond science and has become a fanatical religion for some of them. Here's some excerpts from an e-mail from a professor from a mailing list that has nothing to even do with the environment or global warming, but he felt compelled to express his views on the topic anyway:

On the other hand, non-green buildings are the single largest
contributor to carbon emissions causing global warming and the
depletion of fossil fuels that there is. If we do not correct this
problem, and we needed to start 20 years ago so we're a bit behind,
we've got much, much, much bigger problems than not having the best
schools. We need to be trying to make every single new building the
lowest carbon emission, most energy efficient buildings we can.

I believe the primary concern all building designsin must be carbon
and energy footprint first, occupant performance second. Well
designed buildings can provide both. Most buildings provide either
one or the other. Bad buildings provide neither.

The latest report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
(IPCC) showed that the rate of warming is increasing even more than
predicted. We need to be doing even more to reduce the carbon
footprint and energy use in buildings than we already are.

The sky is burning people. Look up and open your eyes.
