DirectorHonestly, I'm terrified by the suggestion of capping prosperity for corporations with cap-and-trade.  Now I'm seeing other proposals to tackle "the Global Warming problem" are so much more personal and invasive. 

Last year, scientists said the best thing we could do is only have one child.  Now, German Scientists are recommending personal carbon quotas and that it should be 1/4 of American's current consumption.

Can you imagine the massive government regulation needed to monitor such plans?  SMART detectors turning off your power when you've reached your "quota" for the day?  Showers with set time lengths?

Phelim said it best.  "I expected conservatives to care about what was going on in the bedroom, what I was unprepared for was liberals caring about every other room in the house."

You're So Right
Yeah, how ridiculous to think we should actually pay attention to scientific predictions. We should only trust them when it's convenient, like when we need a heart transplant or chemotherapy, or the use of any form of technology, among other things. Forget the fact that science is based on actual, physical EVIDENCE, scientists (and educated people in general) just can't be trusted. The vast majority of the scientists in the world must be engaged in an intricate, collective conspiracy to trick us into believing in global warming. That has to be what it is. Sure, they could simply be reporting their findings to the public, in an effort to raise public awareness about a imminent global crisis, but that can't be true. I mean, it just can't. Because that would mean that it's OUR fault, and that you know, I'd have to accept that as a human beings, we're on the brink of destroying our environment with outrageous energy and fuel consumption. That would mean that I would have to sell my SUV and get some pansy little hybrid or something. And start using those reusable grocery bags, like those hippie liberals. No sir, I'm an AMERICAN. And being an American means being able to sit in front of my fat ass on the couch and watch TV, and not worry about leaving the lights off when I go to bed. And hey, I if I want to take a thirty minute shower or dump the leftovers from the oil change on my truck into a river, that's MY right. I mean, this is America--we'll never run out of anything. Water and clean air are in endless supply. And anyway, if anything did happen, it probably wouldn't effect me...maybe my kids....without a doubt my grandkids...or just some poor Africans or something. And you know, that's not my problem. Anyway, all these scientists are just lying---you know how scientists are, you can't trust them with anything. This is just a vast conspiracy, a grand scheme so that the government can control us and plant microchips in our brain....yep, that sounds about right.

If ever any of these ideas are put in place then we would be saddled with then for a very long time - may be for ever. It would not matter that the next ice age had covered the Globe with ice, we would still be paying our carbon tribute and living on meagre rations.

The last time the German scientists tried to tell the world what to believe, Hitler was in power and they were saying they weren't actually killing people. Yeah, I'm gonna let them dictate how much air I can breathe or how much I should be allowed to drive my car.... NOT!

I don't dislike Germans (I was simply being sarcastic), so all you haters can just be quiet, all I am saying is that I don't think ANYONE, especially a foreign country should be allowed to dictate to us how we should be doing things. They already control a great number of things in the US industrial complex that they shouldn't be allowed to - such as the ownership of National Grid, a MAJOR supplier of power in the US, by the British (I am not a citizen of a monarchy, a Socialist-run democracy (unfortunately) yes, but NOT a monarchy). We do need to wake up and find some better ways to create energy, but Big Brother needs to re-think where he plans to step next and with whom he plans to sleep cause there's fixin' to be an uprisin' hereabouts if he don't!!! And I'll be sure to remind my THREE children of these FACTS as often as possible.

It was well said that, "All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.".

Seems like...
Seems like people pushing Global Warming agenda's and complete garbage and advertising for new vehicles, and all those "planet" saving products makes it seem like they are just trying to make a quick buck, If the government put "School collapses" on a major news broadcast showing the collapse in a 3rd world country in the middle of nowhere, and asked for donations to "support" this event, majority of America would feel remorse and "guilty" and would donate, it's all about the money.
