Full story: Newsday

When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore.

hey.....when you murder helpless birds with your pellet gun does it use co2 cartridges, dummy?

Here you acknowledge that science tells you not to throw nasties into the water supply because it can upset the environment or more important make the water toxic. But the same science that tells you the pollution from fossil fuels is also harmful to the environment is about money not about the environment at all. Do you even begin to realize how stupid you sound

If you invest in CO2 cartridges, you might make money.

One could argue that carbon credits are a "money pit" or an "emerging market," but to claim that warming ITSELF is those things is merely foolish.
Another question is why Righties, who worship capitalism and profit, oppose making money on carbon credits in the FIRST place?
Seems amazingly hypocritical.
because carbon credits are similar to a pyramid scheme. see bernie madoff, punk. or....enron. get the picture?
of course not.

It's not the same science.

And for you not to know that shows just how stupid you are.

Good post. It has the essentials: Truth, and good sense.

As does Al Gore taking his snake oil road show to Hawaii.

Oh... but wait... he bought his carbon-credit indulgences to the sacred Church of Climate Scientology.

Now months after the latest IPCC gloom and doom report and it's business as usual, and only a "crisis" when convenient.

Pehaps you could explain to us, how environmental science has credibilty and climate science doesn't. How do you make that judgement ??? Is it because when you pee in the snow & it turns yellow you figure that can't be good drinking water compared to what comes out of your car exhaust which is totally harmless according to your lot.Yet at the same time won't leave the car running with the garage door shut. Multiply that in the billions, then add all industry, and power generation and you still declare it of no impact. Right now the class is laughing at you!

It's quite clear. Fracking and nuclear: 2 good solutions
==========
UN climate chiefs have backed fracking as part of the solution to global warming – but warned that a massive expansion of green energy will be crucial to prevent devastating extremes of climate change.

In a report, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found it was still just possible to limit the rise in average global temperatures to 3.6F (2C) by 2100, the level beyond which experts say the effects will be "dangerous".

The IPCC warns that sticking within the limit will be a "huge challenge", requiring urgent global action to transform energy, industry and transport systems to cut greenhouse gas emissions, which have been rising ever-faster despite policies supposed to tackle climate change.
The world must at least treble its use of green and low-carbon sources of power, such as solar farms, wind farms and nuclear reactors by 2050.

However, the report finds there is also a role for gas to replace much dirtier coal plants.

Ottmar Edenhofer, co-chair of the working group that drew up the report, said it was “quite clear” that shale gas – extracted through the controversial process of fracking -“can be very consistent with low carbon development and decarbonisation”.

Study Finds Methane Leaks 1,000 Times EPA Estimates During Marcellus Drilling
The first paper to directly measure methane plumes above shale gas drilling sites in Pennsylvania has recorded methane leaks far more powerful than government estimates. Methane is especially important because its global warming effects are at their strongest during the first 20 years after it enters the atmosphere - in other words, during the small window of time available for reducing emissions, desmogblog reports.

Actually, I was demonstrating how your ridiculous gross generalities trip you up once again.

I knew that my statement would bring you on back to thread to argue that two different sciences are now the same.

Do stop... you embarrass yourself.

More studies that prove government estimates are wildly inaccurate. I always suspected that was the case. Thanks!

The paradox is that turning to low GHG emitting energy may need much energy and subsequent GHG releases at first, thus we'll see rise of atmospheric CO2 rate for long years, a reason why I bet on more climatic disorder
