Perhaps we the people are in a better position to "save the planet" than the government. After all, 80% of the people (all of us who believe carbon dioxide is bad) could solve this "problem" if we believers would simply do what we want the non-believers to do ...stop using fossil fuels.

After all these years of buying new pick-ups and SUVs and jetting all over the world to exotic vacation destinations... Perhaps it is time 'walk the talk'.
