More ski areas trying to reduce carbon footprint
http://www.deseretnews.com/article/700095545/...

The biggest impact comes from initial development or later expansion of the area: clearing trees, changing wildlife and vegetation habitats, altering watersheds. There's so much more, though, from transportation for skiers to get there, maintenance of the mountain and facilities — mowing in the summer, snowmaking and trail grooming in the winter, heating the buildings — to the pollution created by the factories making the clothing and equipment used for skiing.

Worried about melting snow and loss of income, no doubt.

Looks like Northstardust's problem is he's dealing with people who are either global warmers or the OTHER set of WANNABES here, the UNEDUCATED MASSES who think just because they RUN their IGNORANT TRAP they're relevent.
Well, you never were relevent: the people who flipped these FRAUDS over and slit their bellies have a lot more SENSE - AND GUTS - than yourself.
Nobody cares what you or ANY of these 'general education' group say - you're all so easily misled it's the stuff of water cooler humor everywhere serious engineering is practiced - the neighbor with the carport full of tools who promptly routers - off a thumb,
the janitors who come in here claiming the entire sky's on fire,
you - with your VERY general education and absolute lack of grasp on the scientific OR law enforcement issues this organized crime spree called MANUFACTURED DATA GLOBAL WARMING.
When you can't stop finding a GANG to run with no matter WHICH SIDE that GANG'S ON
it's all an educated person needs to know about the SEVERELY limited personality you possess.
Why is irrelevent: you're most comfortable in a pack because you don't have the intellectual bona fides to go it alone.
No one has any respect for a pack bully because no one NEEDS to have any, because three sentences in, and YOU'RE FAKING IT.
D.O.N.T. FORGET that THOSE WHO KNOW,
know WHO ELSE knows
**** they're talking about.
YOU'RE NOT ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE, and never - repeat NEVER - have bee.
That makes YOU the bottom of the anti-C.A.G.W. barrel: the used-car salesmen of the POLITICAL side: you don't even have grasp enough of the CHEMICAL, RADIATIVE, FLUID MECHANICS, and INSTRUMENTATION/SENSING sides to POSE for awhile.
You can see how much regard I've got for you: you're a f*ng NOBODY.

Afghan role in new power game
Indeed, plans for pipelines were underway in the mid-1990s -- but stumbled because of continuing instability in Taliban-ruled Afghanistan.

Now the world's oil and gas companies will be eyeing the situation again as the Taliban crumbles.

Russia -- an enthusiastic supporter of the Northern Alliance -- is also thought to be keen to develop warm relations with a new regime in Kabul with a view to future initiatives in terms of oil and gas.

The primary attraction is the existence of oil and gas reserves in Central Asia.

Afghanistan is important because of its location between those reserves and the growing economies of south Asia.

So you are not worried about spewing all of that carbon in the name of recreation? Go snowshoeing instead, it's better for you, your wallet and the environment :)

Pfft- the elite love to ski, so it'll never be unPC to ski, or to drive your big suv to get there. It was the global elite insiders who came up with the scams of 'Global warming' and more recently 'Peak Oil' to control the masses more toward accepting (and paying for) the NWO/ global government.

**Thing is,
the AlGoreythms had predicted 10 years ago that we wouldn't be able to ski NOW! They were desperate to get their carbon tax scheme passed but 'Mother Earth' was a bit ch to the scammers and their ability to bamboozle the sheeple, well except some that are still in denial of GLOBAL COOLING, even with mainstream scientists admitting it is a reality.

Let's just suppose that Global Warming is a myth created with the goal of putting into place a cap and trade policy. Why create cap and trade based on a myth? Suppose for a sec that the real reason for reducing our 'carbon footprint' is to reduce dependency on foreign oil, therefore increasing national security and keeping us out of wars?
