Doctor told me if it tasted good to spit it out.
The US could end emissions tomorrow and it might buy a little time. With the rest of the world industrializing with little oversite, the population out of control its going to take the effects of global warming on the food supply which will seriously effect the population to see change.
I honestly cannot imagine a scenario where the military is going to be all that happy to go out and start killing US civilians. The consensus is half of them would join the revolt along with half the police. A number of them would simply go home or avoid contact. The reality here is there are more deer licenses sold in Colorado, Virginia, Pennsylvania and New York than the entire number of US military personnel. The argument from above that holds the least water is the one about single shot rifles. The rifled flintlock was the assault weapon of the day in 1776 as it was much more accurate than the standard issue Brown Bess muskets. If there were a AR-15 available in 1776 they would of used them. Yes the left is deathly afraid of the armed populace.
I am getting way to old but quite honestly I think it would be great fun to tear it all down and start over. I would think a clean slate would have appeal to both sides of the isle.
The elephants in the room no one seems to want to talk about. If we had a magic wand and could convert all the vehicles to electric tomorrow (forgetting the fact that there is massive limitations on them with current technology not to mention price and their environmental cost to build) we would need a massive increase in electrical generating capacity. Right now we use about the same amount of thermal units in oil products as we produce in electrical production. So everyone really should study the thermal dynamics of this and realize there is no free lunch.
The second elephant in the room is the population. That is the root of the problem and climate change, pollution and such are just symptoms of the disease. All of our leaders on both sides of the collective and currently electrified fence want to treat symptoms and ignore diseases.
The population and its industrialization is everything here just like amps were on trying to get Apollo 13 home after the fuel cell explosion. In my lifetime the world has gone from 2.3 billion to 7.4 billion and the USA from 143 million to 330 million. My carbon footprint has always been as tiny as possible compared to most other people but that alone is just not going to help.
No one wants to consider the environmental costs to produce this so called clean energy. No one wants to discuss the obvious major problem. Our little blue swirling sphere has just way to many occupants.
BTW, This is exceptionally nice artwork today Michael.
Damm personal responsibility and full speed ahead with the lawsuits. After all isn’t everyone really a victim. Next lets blame alcohol for alcoholics and get them billions.
To answer your question. Apparently no they cannot.
Yes she is but the child needs to get out and do something. I think she is permanently rooted in the chair.
Well at least Danae is out doing something unlike dad and sis who seem to only sit around and have no life.
