climate denial

When cancer is your product,and profits rely upon widespread proliferation of metastatic tumors,then your goal becomes the utter destruction of the body's entire immunotherapeutic apparatus.

How Europe will suffer witrh Global Warming?

Some people in tropical clime countries, like Brazil, imagine that Europe as a high latitude country it's cold. But they forgot that Europe tempered clime have a high contrast clime, with very cold winters but also with very hot summers.

Let's compare how tropical clime countries and trempered clime countries would be affectred. Wanna try?

Of course I know government is direct connected to taxes.

But I don't think the world leaders are inversting enough in science research & development for better technologic solutions in this filed.

I feel like the situation can be represented by a dozen people drinking tea in the living room, and a frail old butler get in charge of save the home during a flood, while the people in living room keep drinking tea.

I think that the scientists go for empirical evidence based upon observation,make a hypothesis,see if they can destroy the hypothesis,then if they can't,represent the thing numerically,and see if the output resembles reality within some standard deviation.

To properly represent what's happening in the USA would require a book.We have no energy policy other than the free market,if you can call it that.

So, it's in danger of self destroy, like kids playing with gasoline in a home with no grow-up around.
Hard to change the laws with congressman in the pocket of huge corporations.

It goes back to the Upton Sinclair quote Al Gore used in An Inconvenient Truth,about 'It's hard to get someone to understand something when the their salary is dependent upon them not understanding it.'
One Congressman says something to the effect of,'You don't want to upset the folks who brought you to the dance.'
And in capitalism-speak it makes perfect sense.Capitalists like a secure investment environment with no surprises.And if things are going to change,they'd like 12-years to rearrange their investment portfolios,so as to be positioned to take advantage of emerging industries,while industry,eclipsed by new technology withers on the vine.
It costs a lot of money to campaign for election and re-election.If you'll just kinda hold your place and not really do anything of consequence,you can have a long and illustrious public career.
In 1975 I had dinner with my dad,at the home of Graham Purcell,US Congressman from Texas,in Alexandria Virginia(if I remember correctly).Graham and my dad grew up together in Archer City,Texas.My dad loved his friends,and if he was ever within 500-miles of one,he'd make an attempt to visit.
Graham,a trained attorney, spoke of the magnitude of legislative paper that crossed a Congressman's desk,and how they all relied on their staff to help them navigate the morass of paperwork,often totally deferring to staff,and signing upon nothing more than their recommendation.It sounded busy!
There's probably a lot of well-meaning folks in government,but the system isn't designed for grand gestures and broad strokes of the brush.
Play along,or find yourself buried in committee after committee,with no time to look up,let alone do anything for the constituents back home.
The system here is designed for slow,incremental change.Freshmen Congressman/women can promise anything they want during a campaign,but once they get inside the beltway in Washington,all bets are off.

That's good because the current fix for global warming is to take from, punish and tax the individual so they use less.
Which doesn't nothing to ultimately fix the problem.
Cars still run off gasoline and power plants still burn coal, just a tiny bit less after the government anti carbon beat down.
If they really wanted to fix global warming then nuclear power plants would be used to replace the coal and natural gas base load and the only natural gas plants in use would be emergency peaker plants and to burn off natural gas that may otherwise be flared.
Then only a hand full of coal plants are left that produce fly ash for making high strength, low efflorescent concrete.
