No problem where I live; just about every last square foot of farmland has been replaced with housing developments and shopping, er, "Lifestyle" centers.
Must of been really bad when dinosuars roamed the earth.
Shut down Congress, ASAP!!!
The real answer is fewer humans overall, and make those that remain vegans.
THAT's what "these people" seek.
Oh, and a 7th-century technoogy level for the masses, but not the privileged few in government.
The factually inclined person understands that CO2 is not a pollutant, but rather it is a nutrient for those organisms on the carbon sink side of the carbon cycle.
Isn't there any way to make power or fuel from manure & sewage? I'm serious. It's a constantly renewable source. I would love nothing more than for someone to come up with a way for us to dispense with using crude oil all together.
The Alarmists have now mandated that: In some Eastern Cities, horses pulling carraiges MUST HAVE DIAPERS. In Californis, horse manure--once sought for fertilizer--is declared a "hazardous material". Speculation is that it gets into the water supply and causes algae. Horse Owners are threatened with citations if their horses go while they are out on a trail.
In Ann Coulter's book, however, she describes Liberal's love affair with their feces.
I suggest teaching all farm animals to use a toilet and to flush. Beano could be added to feed.
I suppose Green composting is going to produce CO2, too along with methane, since trees produce 33% of it. Tax that too?
Compost tea is a necessary to ensure healthy seedlings with no dampoff. None of that in the future?
I'm a Green, but these people are just greedy grabbing the money out of other's pockets on an silly idea wrapped up in globalbalony. ~And the self-righteous twits sill fly and drive...
The Control Freaks are at it again...
I'm helping Ron White save the earth from global warming. ;-D
If they believe their own hysterical propaganda about greenhouse gases then the UN should introduce a Volcano tax.
What message is that meant to convey?
First, where is the list of exactly what gases are included in the expression "greenhouse gas emissions?
Second, what is the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, etc. largest sources of the dreaded "greenhouse gases"?
Third, what are greenhouse gas emissions as measured in CO2 equivalent?
I dont have the answers so for the moment let me assume that CO2 is a gas that causes concern. This assumption is largely based on the reference to CO2 equivalents as an apparent method of measurement.
The dictionary defines the noun carbon dioxide as a colorless, odorless, incombustible gas. Its chemical notation is CO2, which means it is a compound made up of molecules containing one carbon atom and two oxygen atoms. Animals breathe out carbon dioxide and green plants absorb carbon dioxide. Combustion and organic decomposition form carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is also carbonic acid gas.
The greenhouse gas effect is the phenomenon whereby the earth's atmosphere traps solar radiation, caused by the presence in the atmosphere of gases such as carbon dioxide, water vapor, and methane that allow incoming sunlight to pass through but absorb heat radiated back from the earth's surface. The greenhouse gas effect is what causes Earth to have an atmosphere that supports life.
Most of the discussions I see regarding greenhouse gases seem to revolve around the notion that man will be able to control global climate change. This notion, combined with a lack of honesty and completeness in the reports, causes my deep skepticism.
How do you know when an environmentalist is lying?
It's lips are moving.
Good thing there were no animals until the 20th century, since that's when global warming started.
