We can't afford not to Carol. Despite what ignorant deniers like you claim, the use of fossil fuels is killing this planet. Richard Muller a professor of physics at UC Berkley whose research was ironically funded by the Koch brothers made this statement after three years of research examining climate data stated;<quoted text>
Why does simple logic seem to elude liberals?
We simply cannot afford the costly and expansive undertaking of finding other sources of alternative energy that can keep this nation running as cost-efficiently as our own natural resources when we're already in dire economic straits. Oil, gas and coal are abundant and readily available.
It's like really, really, really wanting a brand new Hummer but having to drive an old but reliable car you already own because you simply can't afford a costly car payment.
Liberals remind of teenagers. Always wanting what they can't have and not having enough wisdom or maturity to understand why they can't have it...because they're not the ones paying for it.
“Three years ago I identified problems in previous climate studies that, in my mind, threw doubt on the very existence of global warming. Last year, following an intensive research effort involving a dozen scientists, I concluded that global warming was real and that the prior estimates of the rate of warming were correct. I’m now going a step further: Humans are almost entirely the cause.”
You're ignoring the health costs incurred by pollution especially around coal burning power plants which add up to hundreds of billions of dollars a year and directly cause thousands of premature deaths.
Why does someone claiming to be a Christian constantly shill for those that rape and pillage God's creation solely to further line their own bulging pockets?
