"We" being the people who would profit from burning the 60% of fossil fuel that would destroy the planet: greedy, lying bastards who would sacrifice the future of their grandchildren for a quick buck.

If more fossil fuel was available, fewer people would freeze and we'd be able to fuel and energy for less money. That would be good for everyone.
Didn't say it was "controlled," but more than a century of greenhouse science shows that it is AFFECTED. And since the world is warming anyway, more greenhouse gases = more warming.

Runaway global warming could end life as we know it on Earth. That wouldn't be good for anyone, Pollyanna.

No one said they went to jail. They SHOULD have, since they were negligent in the oil rig disaster. That's established fact.

Stuff happens? Dead workers, polluted Gulf, destroyed wildlife, ruined businesses and careers? You really are an airy little s--t, aren't you Brainless?

It's obvious you don't care about anyone or anything but yourself, troll.

My roof is too steep to farm or accumulate snow. I favor growing lichen and moss up there, but my wife likes a neater appearance.
Actually, it is not so hard, and I think more people will adopt urban farming techniques as the culture progresses. Environmental benefits aside, just having a lower electricity bill is reason enough. The vegetables are the kicker. Not sure how high or steep your roof is, but all you have to do for most is stick a couple tomato plants in a bag of compost, hook up a water line if you want (or use the hose, and lay the bag near the edges. Those tomato plants will grow so well, you wouldn't believe it until you tried it. Harvesting on top a ladder is kind of a pain in the ass though, but small price to keep it out of reach of the bugs.

Umm... I don't know how much boating you have done, but there is definitely an oily sheen over the water almost everywhere I have gone, even in the Bahamas. If the sun hits it just right from a distance, you can usually see it, and it stretches all directions. Out past Hawaii, there is a garbage pile about the size of Louisiana just floating out there.

No doubt. Think of "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and the swimming pool scene:

I'm very clear; I oppose climate taxes. I hope you aren't confused by my position.

I'm long on fossil fuel; I think my stocks will continue to increase in value. I've got my money in things I believe. Climate change mitigation is a hoax and that's demonstrably true because there are no experiments that show a man made global climate change. We see the coincidence of CO2 increase and temperature change, but temperatures always change.

Climate changes but if you invest part of your income you won't be caught without a roof on a rainy day in the future.

Almost no boating but I do fly over the oceans once in a while. Some skin diving and swimming; the water's beautiful.

Sure, why not move my garden from the ground, where it's convenient to work, up onto my roof? Then I'll move my furnace and hot water heater out of the basement and put them in front of my house, so my neighbors can enjoy the view. I have to look at their solar panels, fair is fair.

I don't want to tell people how to live, if you want to eat out and travel by limousine, that's you choice. I'm not about telling people they should live in holes or what to put on their roofs.

That BP lied about the amount of oil it discharged into the gulf is already established. Lying to Congress about that was one of 14 felonies to which BP pleaded guilty last year in a legal settlement with the Justice Department that included a $4.5 billion fine, the largest fine ever levied against a corporation in the U.S.

Either this unmitigated doesn't know what a crime is or he is lying.

More dishonesty from Brainless_G. No one was "telling people they should live" in underground houses, and YOU were the one who criticized the initial post suggesting they had some advantages.

Pouting again because no one will agree with you, Brainless?:)
