Easy big fella.Thanks for the sarcasm.
You've been making yourself quite popular with the other members of this forum. Don't fuck with me.
You know better.This thread is about climate change/global warming. How can that lead to anything political? It's science.
We have a responsibility to keep our environment the best we can. Not just for us, but also for the animals we share this planet with.I don't pretend to say that there aren't natural events and cycles that have, are, and will change weather patterns.
I am very confident that science has proven (and more and more scientists confirm) that humans have caused a tremendous amount of damage to the environment and been the cause of a very measurable negative effect on the weather.
Semi, you mentioned how badly one volcano can effect things, which is true. Isn't it easy to picture that 100 years worth of factories, automobiles, deforestation, and all of the other crap we do to the environment can add up like several volcanoes?
The way I look at it is that, even if the scientists are overreacting (which I don't think is the case,) we're still messing up a lot of of the environment for future generations. Civilization has come along far enough that we can easily do the right thing, clean up our act, and not leave such a path of destruction behind. What does it hurt to spend a few bucks to build cleaner factories and more efficient cars, find better fuel sources, and be more responsible with our waste? If nature is shifting things on it's own, we shouldn't be accelerating it. Just my 2 cents.
That's how tax incentives work. You get paid to do something the government wants you to do. The government encourages home ownership and having kids, so you get deductions and credits. The government wants less CO2, so it says you have to buy credits if you want to pollute more.Yeah, I've never understood why the hell those made any sense.
They seem like a bribe for people that don't want to do the right thing, but want to pay someone off to pretend they are being responsible.
Agreed. I'm not saying it's 100% caused by man (or women, am I right people? Equal share people. Equal share.) but there is proof and consensus amongst scientists that we are farking things up. Like you said, we have a responsibility to not fark things up. We can fix some of our wrongdoing too. Nature can still do whatever it's going to do, but we shouldn't help it along.We have a responsibility to keep our environment the best we can. Not just for us, but also for the animals we share this planet with.
But to say we're 100% the cause of the planet warming, I can't agree with that.
Carbon credits are a big scam and money making scheme. #croneycapitalismThat's how tax incentives work. You get paid to do something the government wants you to do.

Business only responds to a stick. And that stick is money.
