    Ah the Oz carbon tax strikes again, again, again and again.

    Carbon tax does nothing for air quality or anything else. Just another United Nations / AlGore scam for stealing wealth.

    Calif tried that years ago. All of the dry cleaning plants were bought out by big oil and then closed down. The refineries got their credits and the bought out dry cleaner plant owners got start up money to build ultra expensive not polluting as much plants.

    It helped the building trades more than any.

    …‘climate change’ is certainly real, however, what is being disputed is whether it is natural or man-made…my personal opinion is it is 90% natural, 10% human contribution, and not a damn thing we do would change it one way or another…

    Do we really NEED polar ice caps?

    Surely we could greatly reduce our carbon contribution if we held our breaths — err, excuse me — if we converted completely to nuclear power.
    -
    One other thing we did which was interesting is reduce sulfur dioxide emissions from smoke stacks. The sulfur used to form sulfates in the atmosphere which blocked some incoming radiation, making the planet cooler (along with a few other interesting side effects).

    That said, how did you arrive at the 90/10 percentages? Pulled from the air as “personal opinion” implies or actually based on real facts? Even there, without previously existing greenhouse gases, the earth would maintain an average temperature of about 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Which is to say it would be frozen solid. As it is, it averages something like 57 degrees or 25 degrees higher. So if our contribution were ten percent, that would be 2.5 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Me not know. Just wondering.

    Herman can fix it.

    …“pulled from the air?” no. although i am not, and never have claimed to be, a scientist of any sort, i have taken enough university science courses to generally understand the various and sundry articles that do come out “for” and “against” the possible causes of climate change. i have based my “personal opinion” on the articles i have read over the years. That’s why i called it my personal opinion, not a scientific study. It’s not written in stone, i will always read any new articles regarding new studies on the subject, should they come my way. And i would have no problem changing my personal opinion if i can be convinced otherwise.
    It may not have been your intention, but i feel you believe that as a member of the general public without a science degree, i am not entitled to an opinion on the subject. Well, I am entitled to one. you don’’t have to like it, agree with it, or listen to it for that matter, but please do not try to imply that because i am not a scientist i can’t have an opinion.
    If the climate change community (“for” or “against”) doesn’t want the general public to hold opinions about their work, they should stop publishing articles where the general public can get hold of them, you know, newspapers, on-line forums, magazines…
