  • EPA's new carbon rules hurt coal, could accelerate shift to natural gas [View news story]
    Agreed, that Germany is somewhat unique, but the US is following the same path. Again, it is not scientific fact that CO2 is a pollutant.
    CO2 was made a pollutant in April of 2007, by legal means. In March of 07, CO2 was not a pollutant.

    The theorized link between CO2 and global warming/ climate change is NOT proven - it is a COMPUTER MODEL based on assumptions and variables that are not proving to be true.
    I think its fair to say that "green energy" also has its own political and investor clout.

  • EPA's new carbon rules hurt coal, could accelerate shift to natural gas [View news story]
    I have lived in the shadow of the largest coal fired plant in the US for 30 years. The power company has spent well over a billion dollars upgrading pollution controls. They have spent untold millions fighting lawyers for this claim and that and nothing has ever stuck. Every resource extracted from the earth does environmental damage including the ores and rare earths that go into the construction of solar panels, batteries, and wind mills. The mining of these elements is no worse than coal. The new plants with the proper pollution equipment are comparable to many heavy manufacturing plants.

    Do a search for the latest on green energy in Germany and Spain.
    Not so good news. I do not believe that CO2 is a pollutant. If CO2
    is omitted from the list of pollutants, the new high tech coal plants
    are amazingly "clean" compared to the old plants. I agree with kmi,
    I think we will see a resurgence - at some point, of a new and improved coal plant.

  • Report: Top 50 polluters emit 75% of greenhouse gases [View news story]

    It is also totally implausible for me to accept that climate science can predict such small changes in temperature over decades. The "climate change model" isn't working.

    You need to separate the pollution. Noxious gases, heavy metals, particulate matter should not be on the same page as CO2 "pollution". CO2 pollution at this point is still theory.
    The pollution you speak of is horrific and yes, needs to be addressed. CO2 is a colorless, odorless gas and can not be blamed
    for the acrid smoke. Climate Change theory is dependent on CO2
    being labeled as a pollutant.

    The report was issued by CDP, formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project, it is an international nonprofit group that compiles data on climate change. Their jobs depend on CO2 being labeled as a pollutant !! If CO2 is removed from the greenhouse gas emissions, these fifty companies are some of the most environmentally responsible out there.

  • "A Carbon Tax That America Could Live With" [View news story]
    I pretty much agree with all your statements. My problem is with the CO2 being the causing agent of warming, not to mention the predictability . We have been producing massive amounts of CO2 for decades, warm spell in the solar cycle, massive amounts of un measurable amounts of CO2 and SO2 from above ground and below ocean volcanoes. Yet every year there are numerous places across the globe that still set record lows. My region just finished the coolest August - ever !! I have no problem with being cautious, but "they" are out for blood.

    " However, while being suitable skeptical of placing too much reliance upon ‘the reasonable man’ in assessing economic matters, it is equally questionable to discount the prospect that, on balance, people as a whole will tend to respond rationally provided the issue in question is squarely put."

    I consider myself a "reasonable man". The computer model of man made climate change is not IMO "squarely put" . The only reason CO2 is a pollutant, is because the Supreme Court said it was.

    If evidence mounts over the next couple of years to show there is no warming but indeed cooling, would you still support a carbon tax ?

    Its is very hard for me to forego anymore taxes until I see proof of more responsible spending. I for one, am furious over how my tax dollars are spent. As one that doesn't buy into the global warming model, a carbon tax is nothing more than a slap in the face.
