PG-13, has it occurred to you that if we use fossil fuels judiciously, that they could last approximately forever?

If you can reduce your day-to-day use of fossil fuels by, say, 75-80%, across the board (personal, corporate), you could extend the time we have to use them by decades, if not centuries. What's wrong with REDUCING the level of fossil fuel consumption to "renewable" levels (there probably is a "renewable" level" - peat bogs are slowly turning to fossil fuels, if we leave them alone, for e.g.).

And if you burned all your coal and all your wood for 500 years, what do you think the air would look like? Hint: London, fogs, late 19th century.

When you put carbon in the atmosphere, the planet just gets more lush.

Well it certainly gets hotter. Some places get more lush, some become uninhabitable. I don't think we're planning for these huge shifts in where population is. Alberta is a place that might get largely uninhabitable, except maybe for digging coal...

And I do pretty well with plants. Lots of humus, lots of composted manure, a s**t load of nettle tea, followed by comfrey teas, and molasses concoctions...

You need to review the carbon cycle.....its not good to create an imbalance in nature which is what we're doing by putting TOO MUCH carbon into the air.....starting with increased air pollution.

Lefties know nothing about energy. As soon as micheal Moore who has not gone right-educates himself and passes it on he is dropped like a hot potato. SHUN.

His movie still has a lefty agenda. He just happens to also be exposing a lie you all believe.

About fifty birds died landing on a toxic pond near fort Mac Murray. Big news. Evil oil:mad:.
Wind farms chop up more birds every day.
Good bird choppers:love:. No reporting on that.
