Is it possible to reduce our energy use? Of course and meanwhile reduce our carbon footprint accordingly. The latest issue of Popular Science hit on several things that could do just that. First, reclaiming waste heat energy from industrial processes could save up to 10-15% of our energy due to heat loss. There needs to be more incentives for industry to do just that. Second a more aggressive recycling program could save petroleum consumption as well as reducing manufacturing costs. For example, recycling more plastics could significantly reduce petroleum consumption. And finally replacing high energy materials in manufacturing with renewables. Examples would be replacing steel and aluminum with more organic building materials such as CLT wood building materials. Michelin is looking to replace isobutylene-isoprene rubber made from petroleum with polymers from organic materials such as straw, wood, or other organic wastes. CLT construction would reduce CO2 loss to the atmosphere in two ways. It would require less energy in the processing of materials and store carbon in the wood used in the structures as a bonus. A win win situation.

Utilizing these would reduce our energy consumption up to 30% or more with little or no upset to the economy. Perhaps it would even help. It is absolutely doable. That along with wind, solar, geothermal, water etc, we could do a lot to change our fossil fuel addiction.

Businesses don't have any social responsibility; they are created to generate profit. Individuals have social responsibility, not organizations or states.
Still no experimental test of climate change mitigation or any geoengineering to create even the tiniest measurable global climate change? What's up with that?
Your right Businesses have no social responsibility that's why we elect governments to force them to take responsibility. What's even worse, your kind complain about that as well.
So Country Joe's tanning plant dumping waste into a river that people downstream drink from can be prosecuted and fined or sent to prison. The same as a multinational company using slave labor to make products that would never pass any moral code or the law in their own country of origin. When you baggers complain about the reach of government all you think of is your lil part of the world & it's never the bigger picture. I guess that's what happens with old age.

A stupid lie of course.

Racial hygiene at the time meant discouraging the Swedish yokels from having children with their cousins, and nothing to do with "white supremacy".

It shows the sort of contemptible smear an amoral lying scumbag like you will not only resort to but rejoice in.

That and eugenics, discouraging interracial marriage, promoting race based hate and ultimately, genocide.

Svante Arrhenius's The State Institute for Racial Biology has been associated with the forced sterilization of more than 65,000 men, women and children. The State Institute for Racial Biology was led by the antisemite Herman Lundborg.

What we normally forget when talking about the amount of CO2, is the significance it has for the human (and other creatures) health. Above 425 ppm in the atmossphere the healthproblems will become more servere, because the blood will slowly be more acid. This will affect bloodpressure etc.
BTW: President Johnson was informed in 1965 about the dangers in increasing the amount of CO2 call 09034626271

Race based hate? Inter-racial marriage?

There was only one race, and that was the Swedes, and cousins were having children with cousins, and that was the issue Arrhenius would have been concerned about.

Of course, if you can provide any evidence that he was involved in reprehensible things that occurred, please feel free to do so, otherwise be called lying scum.

Even if you can, it's irrelevant. Isaac Newton was a slave trader. That wouldn't be a good reason to dismis gravity and jump off a roof.

2nd Law of Thermodynamic

Cold objects like the atmosphere cannot heat up a warmer Earth.

Can any of you Global Warmers ever provide an actual measurement to support CO2 in the cold atmosphere can heat up a warmer Earth?

Good luck sheeple.
