The follow up to An Inconvenient Truth by former Vice President Al Gore called Our Choice, has once again shown the lack of science follow through. It all begins on the cover, and basically it is wrong.
Climate change is real; "global warming" is a complete misnomer (since some places will get colder, others warmer, others will remain unchanged). End of civilizatoin? Of course not. Issue we'll have to deal with? Maybe, but population centers will likely just naturally shift to accomadate.But why perpetuate the Global Warming stuff by writing about it at all? There is legitimate concern for the pollution that we breathe and eat on a daily basis, why take one failed presidential candidate's equally failed argument as the end-all-be-all for environmentalism?You guys never talk about the very real threats of unregulated industrial dumping, both to our nation and the world's oceans. I don't see anything remotely skeptical of large business interests, only of misled hippies.You're picking on the retarded kid in class. I find it intellectually lazy.
The retarded kid in class doesn't want to impose arbitrary population restriction measures, and taxes on the life cycle. I'm guessing that is the difference.If real environmentalists, of which I may even count myself as one, ditch the whole co2 thing, then the world would be a better place.And big business is rubbing their hands with glee at the prospect of the new bubble: carbon credits. Like newer, better, updated derivatives!
Too much time is spent bickering over CO2, but will there be less bickering over heavy metals or other chemicals? I doubt it.Fuck the Earth, trees, bees, snow owls and all of that, it's really about the effect of the environment on people. Where are the moderates who care about how humans are impacted by poisons in our air and water? The reason carbon emissions (and Global Warming) are so conflated is because only extremists obsess over it, so they tend to come up with extremist solutions.I believe businesses have successfully advertised doubt to most moderates.
I agree, if only people knew some of the things they were eating and drinking. Then we'd see real support for environmentalism.
