Those “scientists” and “experts” that believe in “climate change” caused by “global warming” of which human’s are a major cause, include: American Association for the Advancement of Science, American Chemical Society, American Geophysical Union, American Medical Association, American Meteorological Society, American Physical Society, The Geological Society of America, International academies: Joint statement, U.S. National Academy of Sciences http://climate.nasa.gov/scientific-consensus. Even Chevron and Shell (which notes: “Government action is needed and we support an international framework that puts a price on CO2, encouraging the use of all CO2-reducing technologies.”) http://www.shell.com/global/environment-society/environment/climate-change.html

Regarding Climate Change…

The last “Ice Age” began around 110,000 years ago and peaked around 22,000 years ago. If it took 88,000 years going into it, it is reasonable to believe that we are still coming out of the last ice age and temperatures are going to climb due to the natural cycle of ice ages. We humans are much more aware of clock time rather than deep time. The short period of time that we have been tracking the climate change is a drop in the bucket. Man may be contributing a tiny bit to the warming, but mother nature is doing almost all of it. Sorry, but we can’t control mother nature…yet. We will just have to learn to adapt. After all, the current state of man has only been around for approximately 10,000 years.


Regarding balance in energy development… I’m all for it.

If only the uncompromising extremist environmentalist movement knew the definition of the word COMPROMISE…we might be able to reach an agreement. Unfortunately too many of them complain about carbon footprints while their own car exhausts and home heater and wood stove vents continue to contribute to the so-called problem. These people are too young to remember the smog levels in L.A. and Denver during the 1960’s & 70’s. We have come light-years in cleaning up our environment since then.

If the greenie extremists want access to heat, light and gasoline, then they need to allow reasonable development. If all they want to do is stop all development…cut off their access to energy!
