LDS Liberal, Sometimes I am in shock that you are still replying. Common sense
seems to be a lost art for you and your only agenda seems to be to cling to your
title, "liberal" NOT open minded.
I don't trust the science that has been shared to suggest man is the cause
of major changes to the planet.
Re: alt134Still the truth is that in the overall history of the
Earth it has been either warmer or colder based upon its own doings and not
anything Humans have done. The natural processes are still and will go on.
Nothing we do will change that.
Gratitude for a gift is shown by using the gift for its intended purpose and by
proper maintenance. God gave us this planet, thus we should both maintain it
and use it wisely. Whether there is global warming or not, wasting carbon-based
fuel is not showing gratitude. Failing to develop alternatives is foolish. Why did the government finance NASA in the first place? The pay-off for space
exploration was too chancy and long-range for private investment to finance.
The pay-off for developing energy alternatives is also chancy and long-range.
Even so, there is some private investment. Hoorah for those brave visionaries!
LDS Liberal,I find more common sense with Rush, Beck, and Hannity
than you. Global warming sounds serious, but it doesn't make it true. The
earth is cleaner today than a hundred years ago. Do your homework!It's amazing how these people proclaiming global warming, are big time
fossil fuel burners. I don't see them living in a cave.
Volcanoes, and natural occurring forest fires have been polluting the air for
thousands of years.Al Gore got a "D" for science in high
school and failed it in college. Not a good source for forming an opinion. Man
has done much to clean up the planet.
The problem comes from a lack of trust of scientists. Frankly Scientists
aren't helping much. They often portray humanity as the enemy of the
planet. Go and watch Bill Nye's "Eye of Nye" show on Population. He
actually praises China's one child policy and makes it sound like having
less human beings on the planet is a good thing. That viewpoint is not a small
one within academic circles. Many of the supposed solutions to Climate Change
would be economic suicide and would cause a large amount of human suffering.
Until scientists start thinking more compassionately they won't receive
more support from skeptics.
