Little slow aren't you. The conclusion is self explanatory... education without the ability to apply in a meaningful way is nothing more than a waste of time, energy and money.
WOW.. if you could harness all your negative energy, you could be a pioneer in expanding a worm hole..

<quoted text>That means more expensive energy. The plan is to tax energy, especially from fossil fuel. I oppose climate change mitigation by taxing energy users and producers; if climate can be fixed with taxes it isn't broken.
If a company wants to use green energy, fine. Forcing taxpayers to support your billionaire crony pals with subsidies, government insured loans, buyouts, bailouts or executive mandate is wrong.
Congress has never authorized carbon limits or taxes. The courts might not like it, but the executive branch has no authority to regulate CO2 production.
I am floored that I totally agree with you on this: I also oppose climate change mitigation by taxing energy users.

I didn't ask for this. YOU told me it was OK to use fossil fuels, from the very beginning, and we didn't know at first how bad they could be. But all this time YOU, brain-dead representative of your now-evil multinationals, have gotten the profits without cleaning up your mess. Getting the pussy without taking out the trash. And you could even be forgiven for that, but not for the way you are acting now.

YOU should join in transitioning cause you're going to run out anyway; and soon, if we're in a bubble.

YOU should clean up your mess. And YOU should pay for it!

This is where we differ.

So, you're telling me that everyone employed by these city governments is dishonest? And the state governments that are making mitigation plans too? Is this an organized affair or is there simply no whistleblower to be found, that every single one of these thousands is dishonest. That their jobs depend on it?

I'd hate to be you, walking around, so cynical.

I'm glad I can't. If humans survive the catastrophe that the billionaires who are piling up fortunes from the fossil fuel economy are making, the population will be reduced by starvation 1/100th its present size or less and the survivors will most likely live lives that as Thomas Hobbes said, would be "No arts; no letters; no society; and which is worst of all, continual fear and danger of violent death; and the life of man solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short."

In your case, yes, especially someone like you who cannot answer simple questions, takes qoutes out of context and only uses parts of them and is dishonest. What is your specific degrees and from where.

Ever figure up how much your wind generator has saved you or helped your carbon footprint yet? You could even post a link to google maps and we could see them. I hear GM has an oversupply of Volts for sale, just think how much you could for your cause. Oh, I forgot, you don't actually do anything to help the environment, you just whine.

I assume that you are uneducated, so how do you know that all those professors are socialists? Did Limbaugh or Beck tell you?

I refer to them as educated idiots. They have degrees but don't have the ability to apply them in a real setting. They spout ad nauseam what their progressive socialist professors told them is true. They don't have critical thinking skills so they can apply what knowledge they have that's correct to amplify their ability to understand applications of science, mathematics to reach a conclusion.
Another Asimov quote for the jeff, jay, jason, michael sockpuppets:

“Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'”
