Who told you that Hannity ?? If anything is about wealth redistribution it was Globalisation but who came up with that "CAPITALISM" by exporting local jobs to cheap labor countries. So that's why all the clothes you wear are made in China, India, Bangladesh or some other 3rd world country. The TV you watch, every electrical appliance in your home and half the things you consume on a weekly basis. They are all made overseas. That is wealth redistribution, it benefits those countries that had nothing but it reduces your slice of the economic pie. So don't rant on BS about emission standards being wealth redistribution it doesn't even come close to what is already here!

hahaha you run on improper context every day until you learn about the AGW and the global climate change.

Dumbest post ever. Capitalism is about wealth creation, not wealth distribution.

The 25-page report, written by Gates and his wife Melinda, who are co-chairs of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, argued that the world is a better place than it has even been before.

Gates predicted that by 2035, there would be almost no poor countries left in the world, using today's World Bank classification of low-income countries — even after adjusting for inflation.

No need to concern yourself with those questions.

Rather, right now we need to support a complete ban on stadium events because of the thousands of unnecessary trips by mostly carbon based cars but also rapid transit. There is a perfectly good substitute which is television so that people can have a better view and a more comfortable seat in their own home without contributing to further global warming. Banning stadium events (like the super bowl and college football, NBA, etc) is like taking 768,000 cars off the road. True people could walk to the event, but there is not enough of the walkers to justify keeping the stadium open to everyone.

BAN STADIUM EVENTS!

I'm really laughing my arse off at that ridiculous suggestion.But,if that's what you want to advocate for hey go for it.You forgot nascar in that group.Now the millions of people that live their lives around those activities what do you think they will say to you when you go on your media campaign?I do not think you will have a very positive outcome.

You may as well give up. I did.

The people who don't want to admit that humans putting all that CO2 back into the atmosphere that God worked for hundreds of millions of years to lock up in coal and petroleum can and will cause the climate to warm cannot be reasoned with. First, the religious ones refuse to admit that the CO2 in coal was ever in the air to begin with. They scoff, "Millions of years.... No way. The earth was created in six days in 4004 BC!" And science. That is irrelevant to them, because, as one told me, "Scientists don't believe in God and His creation, so their science is not valid."

Then there are the ones who have drunk the poison kool-aid put out by the likes of the Koch brothers, two filthy rich old men who want their fossil fuel energy companies to make them even richer.

And it doesn't really matter to either sort. I've had deniers from both camps tell me, "It doesn't really matter because we'll be dead before any real harm is done."

That's probably true, too. Future generations will look back from the devastation and privation that the world will be then and damn them, but... They're already dead.

No need to thank that "warminst."

Pay attention now. Associated with those daily 400,000 hiroshimas are the 90 million tons of man-made CO2.

Got it?

Until the growth of CO2 is halted, said Greg Rau, a marine chemist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, ocean acidification will just keep getting worse.

"That's not a threat or a prediction," Rau said. "It's a promise."

Well future generations will look at all the debt created and will say the same."Dam them" we'll all be dead but the damage will already be done.They'll wonder why all you warmers drank the poison kool aid from Al Gore and say they got what they deserved.
