Humans adversely impacted the ozone layer. That's why you can't buy Freon anymore.

Don't know. I rarely post on climate thread because I don't know enough about climate science to have a firm opinion, and I don't trust the media to give me accurate information about it.

...and you know, that's a really good example of why the implementation of global warming is a scam

The whole world stopped using Freon...it really was poison

But with CO2/global warming....developing countries get to increase their CO2 emissions because they didn't make enough money (GDP)...or have more people (per capita)

...no one would have said "you get to keep using Freon"

But then Mt St Helens blew and put more CFC's into the atmosphere than mankind had ever produced or will ever produce. Created a huge hole in the ozone layer but then a few years later the hole was gone and the ozone was thicker than ever.

The anti-environmental conservatives should soften their strident insistence that continuance of dependence upon expanded use of fossil fuels will have no long-term effect.

But in return, the far-Left-leaning crowd needs to abandon their little-girl-like conviction that only a huge new expansion of a bureaucracy with its own purposes can "save the planet" -- and that the choice has to be made -- and imposed on all of us -- within the twelve (or whatever number of) years they alone deem to be crucial.
The poll is not a complicated question, its rather straight forward and the results don't surprise me. CD has a healthy contingent of non-believers,

What you believe is not based on science, just belief. Man is a very destructive force, do you have anything to compare.


Fossil fuel emissions are not local, we won the lottery when to our atmosphere and the sun. You shouldn't assume that we can always do as we want and it wont have an impact.

However, do believe humankind as we progressed have sped up that process, caused some irreversible damage to the environment, and caused other damages to the environment that does/can lead to chain reaction of negative environmental event's.

With that said I support funding in finding eco friendly and sustainable energy sources. Same goes for energy sources for transportation and increase of public transportation.

Support soultions to minimize and balance urban sprawling.

Protect open spaces.

Plant more trees.

Utilize more biodegradable products and work towards not using any non-biodegrable products in the future.

Support sustainable farming techniques. Support use of GMO crops. Support unique farming techniques with minimal to no environmental impact.

Support research in reversing damage to the ice caps and ozone layer. Work towards restoring harmony of Mother Earth.

Support global initiative of space exploration.

Support global initiative in creating nuclear fusion as an energy source.

For the U.S. maintain Clean Air and Clean Water regulations.

Tax rebates for U.S. Businesses that ascertain various environmental friendly goals set up by the Government.

Make businesses that cause negative environmental impacts pay for clean up cost or pay back the Government for clean up cost.

Work with non profit agencies to better protect protected open spaces in the U.S.
This country has a epidemic of trees. That is why the west is burning in forest fires. We need to plant more trees in cities and remove trees from our forests in the west.

GMO has NOTHING to do with climate change.

Making US businesses pay for climate change.....well, when the World ENDS Boeing will be there. The leading advocate of climate change is Governor Jay Inslee of Washington state. He gave Boeing 10 BILLION dollars in state tax breaks to continue destroying the planet. WTF??

Two things we can do RIGHT NOW....

Drive 55 MPH per hour. 30% reduction in C02 emissions due to transportation. BTW...every Democrat governor has the authority to do this.....TOMORROW. No Trump, no legislation, no new taxes.

Reduce jet travel in world to 1970's levels. Ban short (less than 1000 mile) jet flights. Ban private jets.

Minimal costs to society, maxinum benefit to the planet.

Absolutely true. We aren't taking care of the planet. We have caused diabetes, a heart attack, hypertension, etc for feeding it pollution, waste, fracking, etc.

Does it matter? A global climate agreement to reduce emissions will never happen. It doesn't matter to me what's causing the trends in the weather I experience. I bought a heat pump and an umbrella. I already have a snowmobile suit.
