Tetragramma: Ya right, that's why everyone owns their own cow, NOT.

So called `Green Energy` isn`t profitable on it`s own, it`s heavily subsidized by the government and that`s the only reason it exists right now. Make it practical and profitable, without subsidies, and there won`t be a problem.

Even then, `Climate Change` is not anthropogenic (caused by human activity) and recent discoveries at CERN have proved that the sun has a much larger role in regulating our climate then was originally theorized. Link

Green energy is good for an economy- transporting and making things requires energy, which would be less expensive if there was a continuous supply (solar, wind, thermal) rather than an increasingly more expensive commodity (oil). Opposing green energy for economic reasons is like saying that milk is cheap enough to not justify buying a cow when the cow is cheaper in the long run.

patchgrabber: I don't have a problem with researching clean energy, I have a problem with it being forced down our throats at the cost of our economy.

" The environmental movement wants to end all use of 'fossil fuel` by any and all means necessary. They aren`t afraid to lie, cheat, and steal tax money (in the form of grants) to meet that goal."

So your proposal is to do what exactly? Not research renewable energy and keep using fossil fuels until their price skyrockets and then we run out with nothing to fall back on? Typical right wing thinking, can`t see more than five feet in front of them.

skine: 200 years is a large amount of time, but if the graph had included even earlier temperatures, like the medieval warm period, you would see that the earth has been much warmer and much cooler than it is now, It's cyclical. Now it`s leveling off and perhaps perhaps about to cool off again.

Gerry: As to your question as to why ? The quick answer is money, but it goes beyond that. The environmental movement wants to end all use of `fossil fuel` by any and all means necessary. They aren`t afraid to lie, cheat, and steal tax money (in the form of grants) to meet that goal.

Scaremongering `global warming` is worth billions of dollars in investments to `green energy` companies, like Solyndra that just went bankrupt, without the scare even more will go bankrupt because they can`t be profitable otherwise.
