Re: How is that Global Warming thing working out for you?
Ironic that in the infancy of the social environmental movement the scientific community was "virtually unanimous" that widespread famines would be the result of a global cooling cycle that had gone so far that it couldn't be stopped, and that more severe weather would result.
Only to be told 15 years later that the earth had been experiencing a warming trend that could not be stopped, would flood coastal areas and would again lead to more severe weather.
Seems a lot like sitting round the camp fire with chicken little. The forecasted end of the world due to climate change has already passed by twice now. Seems like a good time to kick back, open a beer and watch the next prediction pass by as well.
Oh, and all the sulfur they filter out at the coal powered plants to prevent acid rain? We now have to buy that to spread in our fields. Turns out that plants require sulfur to be healthy enough to produce top yields, and it used to fall from the sky for free in amounts that were adequate. Thanks to the environmental movement, we now filter it out(cost), truck it to the fertilizer dealers(cost), pay to have it spread(cost). And you know all those engines that hauled, loaded, and spread that suffer had electric engines that ran from nuclear power, right? Otherwise they would be increasing the greenhouse gasses, right?
So in a way, the reduction of acid rain is increasing the consumption of fossil fuels. Kinda like when they lowered the sulfur in diesel fuel, everyone lost 10% of their fuel economy. We burn more now for the same job. Beautiful, ain't it.
Hindsight is 20/10, not 20/20...
After the fact, I always know what didn't work.
