    Enough of Going Green and Global Warming

    I have had it everything is go green. Do this save the earth or you are evil. If anyone speaks out against global warming they are called a mean and their science is bad. What if the Global warming science is bad?

    Tell me how they can predict the weather 5 to 50 years out when they have trouble predicting it 5 hours out. Take today bad storms likely to occur, all day I hear this. What do we get 5 freaking drops. Granted it did rain in other places but nothing very bad. Give me a forecast for today that is right then 3 days then 7 then a year then maybe try to guess 5 years out.

    Anyone hear the story that Iowa will have move floods because of global warming. 5 years ago they said Iowa's climate will be like Kansas and Nebraskas because of Global Change.

    We do a lot in this country to do the right thing with the enviroment as other countries tear it up at a record pace. Why do enviromentalists run this country? They are going to ruin it. Heck it is near impossable to have a factory here, partly because of them.

    I am tierd of them saying we cannot drill for oil here or make our own energy. Other countries drill for oil off in the Gulf, why cann't the most caring country in the world? I guess it is better to send our money to the nice people of China and the Middle East, allow them to buy our country up in return and act like it is no big deal.

    Re: Enough of Going Green and Global Warming

    I tend to agree. The world has been around how long, billions of years? And in 50-100 years of cars and factories, we are totally changing the climate and weather patterns? I don't think so. Let's say our goal was to change the climate and weather patterns and we put all our energy as people into doing it... I honestly still don't think we could do it. It's all cyclical.

    I'm not saying I don't recycle and don't think smog or whatever should be reduced, I do... but I don't believe in global warming.

    Re: Enough of Going Green and Global Warming

    Al Gore can't lose now with "Climate Change". If it's warmer he will blame it on humans. If it's cooler he will blame it on humans. If we have more natural disasters, it's our fault. If there are no natural disasters, it's because the last 5 years people have bought hybrids...

    I can't believe how stupid we are.

    Going "GREEN" isnt much more than a marketing scheme.

    I'm all for being good to the environment, but I have to agree, the current "Green" label is cliche.

    This is actually one of the better posts I have seen. Not saying I agree with it, but it is concise and to the point.

    Re: Enough of Going Green and Global Warming

    I really think that the Global Warming is the new face of socialism in this country. It is a perfect tool. The reaction is everything they love, reduce commerce, limit capitalism, restrict life and in general, control the public. Socialists power stems from controlling every aspect of life. This issue is a brilliant idea, best part is you can blame everything on it and the media gobbles it up. If they are wrong we will not know for 20 or 30 years. I have to be honest I am not conservative but a 5-4 gun vote in the supreme court, scares the crap out of me. We are heading to the left and I don't mean Bill Clinton left we are heading way left of that with either candidate I fear. Our only hope out of this thing is to get the economy cranking up again and it will cycle. What we don't need is a repeat of the Carter years where we have a President stand there and tell us we have had it too good for too long and we need to change our lifestyles. That will be Obama. McCain will continue and expand the war and still enact any program his old buddies send his way. I have never been so worried in my life.

    Re: Enough of Going Green and Global Warming

    Sometimes the amount of conservative venom in this place is astounding. Going "green" can be very simple, like reducing the amount of paper you use in the office or reusing old water bottles instead of buying new 12-packs of Aquafina or whatever every week. Drive a compact that gets you 35 mpg highway instead of a Yukon or an H3 that gets maybe 15 mpg tops.

    I typically hate political threads and I'm not going to waste my time by arguing anything here further. God I can't wait for football season.

    Seriously. I don't give a crap whether global warming or climate change or whatever it's called these days is real. Just be smart with the resources you're using. Recycle, reuse, reduce. Nuff said.

    Way too many companies are using the "go green" cliche as a money making scheme.
