And Rouge, Heritage had several economists behind the "Heritage Plan" not just Stuart Butler, Ph. D. that's why it was called "The Heritage Plan."

Global warming happens. And apparently is happening.
What percentage of influence that man has on this is the only thing really being debated in science.
Solutions to this are available. Consider it our trial by fire introduction to terraforming. I find it really exciting.
There are a few camps out there that argue over what the effects will be if our recent trend continues, so we are kind of too far away to even know what we should be doing about it. But this is certainly not the first time this has happened. Our ancestors survived an ice age somehow.
Global warming will not kill off mankind. But it is something to play with while we understand more about our home. Overcoming climate change will be an essential part of our long term survival.
True, the extent of effect of human activity is debatable but I think there is agreement that it is not insignificant.

Black Man Goes on Shooting Spree Targeting Only White People
Posted By Philip Hodges on Sep 28, 2013

Here’s another story that won’t make national headlines anywhere. And it probably won’t be investigated as a “hate crime,” even though race had everything do with the attack. Lakim Faust is a black man who went on a shooting spree, armed with 100 rounds of ammo. He only went after the white folk according to a local CBS affiliate:
“A man who shot four people near a Greenville Wal-Mart in June picked out his victims because they were white, according to several indictments handed down against him. Lakim Faust had more than 100 rounds of ammunition when he started shooting at people who were standing outside at a law firm and a shopping center in June, authorities said. A grand jury indicted Faust on 14 charges Monday, including four counts of attempted first-degree murder. Faust, who is black, picked out his victims based on their race, according to the indictments. The documents didn’t specify why Faust wanted to shoot white people, and police have not talked about why he picked out his targets. Earlier reports had indicated that Faust was shooting ‘indiscriminately.’”
Apparently, no one was killed. I guess Faust wasn’t that good of a shot. Of course, police shot Faust and didn’t kill him. He spent some time in the hospital, but now he’s out and in jail.
If only Faust had been a white guy who wanted to kill only black people. Even if he ended up not killing anyone, the media would have gone crazy. They’d start talking about how white-on-black “hate crimes” are on the rise. They’d say that ordinarily they’re opposed to the death penalty but in this case, they’d make an exception. They’d start making all sorts of “connections” about Faust’s political affiliations. They’d claim that Faust was a right-wing extremist with ties to the Tea Party. They’d say he voted for Ron Paul and donated to Rand Paul’s senate campaign. They’d “unearth” some comments that he supposedly made on some racist website. They’d interview members of his family and everyone who claimed to be an old friend of his. His family and “friends” would all say that he had been reclusive for the past several years and that they always knew that he was “up to something.” A few of the ones interviewed would express regret for not reporting his behavior to the police who could have given him a psych evaluation and had him committed, which would have prevented his hate crime shooting spree.
Then they’d cut for commercial which would be an ad from DHS reminding everyone,“If you see something, say something,” followed by a Prozac commercial. And then a Zoloft commercial. And then a Paxil commercial.
But…he was black, and he wanted to kill only white people. So, none of that matters. It’s just a local story. And remember, white people owned black slaves a long time ago, so those white folk sort of had it coming, if you know what I mean. Move along, people. Nothing to see here.

“We know this because we were there: In 1988-90, we were employed at Heritage as a public relations associate (a junior writer and editor), and we wrote at least one press release for a publication touting Heritage’s plan for comprehensive legislation to provide universal 'quality, affordable health care.'”

And Stuart Butler himself referred to "the Heritage Plan" several times.

Now who's plan do you think "Heritage's plan" was?

Even if MA were a socialist state (which it isn't), NOBODY was calling the Heritage plan, "socialist." Duh!

Thank you. Now what about the thousands of bird that are getting chopped up in wind turbines?

Study: Feds underestimated how many birds get killed by wind turbines
“I estimated 888,000 bat and 573,000 bird fatalities/year (including 83,000 raptor fatalities) at 51,630 megawatt (MW) of installed wind-energy capacity in the United States in 2012,” writes K. Shawn Smallwood, author of the study that was published in the Wildlife Society Bulletin.

Oh... yes.

Certainly significant and measurable. The problem is we aren't quite sure how to measure it and therein lies the problem. If it is 12% of the problem that would be a staggering stat. If it is 3% or less... well, you catch my drift.

Either way it is a good idea to make reasonable cuts in CO2 output. This doesn't hurt in either scenario.

But it is probably an even better idea to introduce something that would react with CO2 to change the properties of it.

This could actually turn into an issue or the trend could end up reversing itself in a few years.

The Three Mile Island "accident" happened because of human error. Someone saw a temp reading spiking and decided to intervene. That set into motion a series of events that led to the release of radioactive material.

What they didn't know was that the computer would have corrected for the temp anomaly less than a minute after they lost their cool... cheesy pun intended. They overrode the computer when they freaked out.

I am not using this as a parable to support inaction. I just think we need to throw a bit of money at it and figure out what is what first. Historically, having a plan has never hurt. Even shitty plans are beneficial.
