Erratum:
I meant "psychotically hallucinating that it's 'free' TO EMIT CARBON INTO THE ATMOSPHERE WITHOUT RESTRAINT.
Oops. I forgot to mention that only government can mandate carbon capture. It will always be more expensive over the short term to install carbon capture technology on coal, oil or gas fired power plants. It'll always be cheaper to persist in the psychotic delusion that it's "free" to emit just carbon into the atmosphere.

Yet if we can't get enough energy from conservation, renewable sources & revamped nuclear, our only choice may be burning fossil fuels with carbon capture.

Government is not the enemy. At least if we don't like what they're doing, we can vote them out.

Unless you're a large stockholder, OTOH, you don't get to vote on corporate behavior. Yes, you can take your money elsewhere, but ONLY if a strong government is doing its job & preventing monopolistic & oligopolistic behavior. They usually do well on the former, not so well on the latter.

Taxes make us all better off. Infrastructure, schools, police, firemen, military make it possible for everyone to live a better life. Anti-tax folks are idiots.

Yes. Taxes should be reasonable, & should only be assessed on those who have representation.("Taxation without representation is tyranny!") But they normally fund things that benefit all of us.

It's absurd to say government is always the enemy. We need both government & the private sector for the country to work. They each do some things significantly better than the other.

Gov. as you call them is hired hands that should be workers at will and replaced. We the People are the Gov. and they are the politicians that are successfully selling this country down the drain.

Every time you make government workers temporary (e.g. term limits for legislators), you diminish the power of government & increase the power of the oligopolistic private sector. Teddy Roosevelt, & the American people, knew this a hundred years ago. The government needs to be strong & independent enough to take on big business when it is necessary.

After decades of attacks, the government is much too weak to do the right thing to protect the people. The oligopolies are more powerful than they've been since the 1920s, maybe since the 1890s.

Remember, if we don't like our government, we can vote them out. Unless you're a large shareholder, though, you get no vote on corporate behavior. Yes, you can choose to take your money elsewhere, but ONLY if the government is doing its job, eliminating monopolistic & oligopolistic practices. A weak government, like we have now, can't do that job.

The only thing the Global warming debate proves is how absolutely stupid and undereducated Americans are when comes to what "science" really is. I bet most people that have an "opinion" on this topic haven't read an actual science article from a reputable source in years.
It's understandable <in their defense> that they are trying to survive the everyday hassles and violence.

At some level, they realize wisely that scientists are at work somewhere in the world.

Just a pipe dream the sheeplebots will continue to vote for their favorite party regardless of the consequences .Politicians get stronger each year and the Gov.“We the People" are getting weaker.

You are good for belly-laughs, Penny. Politicians have been getting steadily weaker throughout my (relatively long) lifetime. But keep it up, I enjoy the laughter.

Yes big government.

Stay off the damn roads; they were built by big government.

Don't call the law if someone steals your car. That's government.

When will you be out shoveling snow, fixing potholes, making sure your meat isn't infested with worms, and keeping the North Koreans from marching into your neighborhood? I didn't think so. Without government, you might be dead.

PHudumass, you one of the more stupid people to show up here. How do you feed yourself without help?
