The estimated U.S. responsibility for earth’s carbon output is only 15 percent. If the United States disappeared from the planet, virtually all manmade global warming would still occur. Per NASA, since 1880 the earth’s temperature is up only 1 degree Celsius.

One needn’t be a denier to comprehend that making us all live in crowded cities and ride trains, doubling or tripling the national debt, politically remaking government in the name of saving the planet — and otherwise turning the American way of life upside down — will make no significant difference. Adding to the ongoing, ignorant politically correct parroting is irresponsible.

The environmental brouhaha bottom line is always overpopulation; global warming is but a symptom.
