56% OF AMERICANS, MOSTLY REPUBLICANS, DON'T WANT TO PAY MORE TO FIGHT GLOBAL WARMING; AND AT LEAST 56% OF AMERICANS ARE DEAD OF THE HOLY SPIRIT OF TRUTH AND LOVE.
Carbon in the atmosphere has nothing to do with anything. All the carbon burning and tree cutting, etc., is irrelevant to the climate. They are completely disconnected. We could put as much carbon into the atmosphere as it could possibly hold, and there would be zero impact on the climate.
Who are the idiots who believe this?
"The legislation [cap and trade or a carbon tax] has little GOP support because of questions about the science behind it and the potential cost." (See: "56% Don't Want To Pay More To Fight Global Warming," Rasmussen Reports. July 1, 2009.)
"...questions about the science behind it and the potential cost"? There is absolutely no doubt that humans pumping additional carbon into the atmosphere impacts climate. I don't need one scientific study to tell me that either. It's just plain common sense. Cap and Trade or a carbon tax is not the best way forward, but it is incredibly stupid of the American people not to believe there is a problem with carbon burning.
The talking heads paid by the carbon corporations, such as oil and coal, sponsor the TV these brainwashed individual Americans are watching and buying.
Environmentalism is a sacred duty, people. It's Creation Care. It's the Golden Rule. If you hate the planet that is the gift of God to us, you hate God. Wake Up!
