When you are working it goes without saying you are also planning for your retirement. So indirectly trying to build a nest egg to cover the possibility of not dying the week after you retire. You are making an investment for living a long life. Its the same with the environment, giving it the same value that oil has or any other high priced commodity builds an economy in itself. Then you could buy your carbon credits and cash them in when you retire. Capitalism could drive the environment just like it does the consumer market but you have to give it value. Then all those alternative energy companies would prosper. It's easy done, it just needs the will power of ppl like you who have closed minds because it goes against their lifestyle. For instance if you bought a Mercedes a couple of years ago they paid all the carbon credits that car would emit for 3 yrs in the price. That's how the environment gets value. Then a farmer with a land full of mature trees is just as rich as the one who has the oil well.*Occupywallstreet does not even mention CO2 in its list of demands because of the bank-funded carbon trading stock markets run by corporations.
Not one IPCC warning says a CO2 catastrophic climate crisis is as real as a comet hit or an asteroid hit. Science has NEVER said it and refuses to say it.
Not one IPCC warning isn't swimming in "maybes".
Not one IPCC warning says a crisis is inevitable or eventual or imminent.
Not one IPCC warning says it "WILL" happen.
Not one IPCC warning explains the tropical fossils under both polar caps proving this climate of today has obviously happened before.
*Science only agrees it "might" happen after 28 years of research so 28 years of maybe proves it WONT be a crisis.* Deny that.
What is so hard to understand about that, just because someone is green doesn't make them a hippie living in a cave. They could also be the next Bill Gates.
